Complete sacral agenesis--a case report.

Author information

  • 1Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kurume University School of Medicine, Japan.


We report a case of a girl with complete sacral agenesis associated with arthrogrypotic-like deformity. This case demonstrates that a posterior knee release and braces following operation are effective treatment for knee-flexion contractures. Accordingly it is suggested that a supracondylar osteotomy is not required for mild or moderate recurrence of knee-flexion contractures.
