Author information

Orthopaedic and Fracture Clinic, San Jose, California 95128, USA.


Extremity deformities in patients with hypophosphatemic rickets (HPR) are often complex and multiplanar. Described methods for correcting these deformities are imprecise and require interruption of the medical management of the condition. Corrective osteotomies were performed on 29 bones in nine children with HPR. Use of the Orthofix external fixator enabled precise correction of the deformities without interruption of medical management.
