Edited by the respected pediatric orthopaedic surgeon Ali Kalamchi, M.D. with contributions from other experts in the field, Congenital Lower Limb Deficiencies is a single source reference guide for rare complex congenital defects of the lower limb. The text is divided into three sections. The first section discusses normal limb development; the genetic, familial, and historical nature of lower limb defects; and the evaluation and categorization of such defects in pediatric patients. The second section characterizes and classifies the congenital defects and covers early long-term planning of patient management based on clinical and radiographic findings. The third section analyzes the treatment modalities, including several chapters on the relationship of sports therapy to the treatment plan. In addition, the authors contribute their wealth of expertise by sharing their experiences and preferences in the treatment of congenital lower limb defects. The team approach for geneticists, pediatricians, orthopedists, therapists, prosthetists and other health care professsionals involved in each case is emphasized.
