Effects of Thermal Ablation on Hindlimb Growth

The PI of this project was:

This project was funded by: Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation

The term of this project was: July 2020 to November 2021

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 20

The purpose of this project is to test if epiphysiodesis made with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a safe procedure that disrupts the growth plate without damaging the adjacent joint articular cartilage. The joint will be examined post ablation using MRI and CT.
