  • Introduction Non-surgical treatment of Blounts disease has been somewhat controversial. Studies have shown success with use of a drop lock or solid upright KAFO variations which are accepted as the gold standard for orthotic treatment 1-4.[acpoc.org]
  • Treatment What treatment options are available? Treatment depends on the age of the child and the stage of the disease. Between ages birth and two, careful observation or a trial of bracing (also called orthotics) may be done.[physiocarephysiotherapy.com]

Prognosis

  • If closure of the growth plate takes place at an early age prognosis for the deformity is poor. If surgery is delayed until after the age of 4 there is a high rate of recurrence of the bowlegged deformity.[southfloridasportsmedicine.com]
  • The prognosis in the infantile form of Blount disease must be considered separately from that in the adolescent form. Infantile tibia vara has a good prognosis, and recurrence rates of deformity are low when treated at a young age and early stage.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Osteotomy indicated if there is : Severe deformity Severe joint depression In osteotomy aim to correct to 10 valgus Use of an opening wedge may obviate the need for operative correction of LLD Need to warn parents of risk of recurrence post surgery Prognosis[orthopaedicsone.com]

Etiology

  • Factors such as injury or infection of the physis have been suspected to play an etiologic role; however, most patients have no history of trauma or infection, leading many authors to discount them as the only possible causes. [13, 16, 17] Etiology The[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • It is important to distinguish that there is controversy as whether the two forms of the disease have similar pathophysiology. Some literature supports their similarities, while other authors consider them separate entities.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • The pathophysiologic manifestations of many of these disorders differ from analogous adult problems because of the added dimension of growth.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]
