Transient hypertension was observed in three of the eight children in whom lengthening of the lower extremity was carried out to correct deformities resulting from poliomyelitis. A similar observation was made in a soldier undergoing heavy skeletal traction to correct shortening caused by a fractured femur. High values of urinary catechol amines were noted in two patients during the lengthening procedure.
