Principles of Deformity Correction is a comprehensive text on the analysis, planning, and treatment of lower limb deformities. The nomenclature, based on normal frontal and sagittal plane alignment, which is easy to remember and can be derived without memorization, is the new universal language for orthopaedic deformities. This work offers detailed information regarding deformities and malalignment, including radiographic and clinical assessment, mechanical and anatomic axis planning, osteotomies, joint and gait compensatory mechanisms, and hardware considerations. The book is extensively illustrated to avoid confusion and to leave little to the imagination. The planning is further facilitated and practiced using an accompanying workbook and animated CD-ROM. The methods taught are simple, intuitive, and universal in their application for different hardware systems because they are principle based. This book is of equal interest to pediatric and adult orthopaedic surgeons and is taught annual courses.
