Overview of techniques

The trauma to initiate growth acceleration can be induced through different techniques such as:

  1. Inverted “T” incision (described technique)
  2. Cross incision
  3. Transcutaneous incision
  4. (Needle trauma /not shown in the figure)
  5. (Shockwave therapy / not shown in the figure)

Note: only technique 1 and 3 will be described at the distal McIII. The techniques themselves do not change if they are applied in any of the different anatomic locations where angular limb deformities can occur, only the local anatomical considerations do.
