Abstract

In four of thirty-six cases of surgical epiphyseal fusion (carried out according to the technique of Phemister), deformities followed and were directly attributable to the operation. These deformities resulted from incomplete and asymmetrical arrest of epiphyseal growth and often necessitated further surgical intervention.
