Mosely Straight Line
- See: Growth Deformities of the Limbs:
- straight-line graph based on a logarithmic scale of relative rates of limb growth along w/ expected discrepancy at maturity;
- straight line graph also allows estimation of how epiphysiodesis will affect the long lower limb at different ages;
- graph requires > 3 sequential measurements of bone age at 4-month intervals
Timing of physiodesis in limb length inequality. The Straight Line Graph applied in 30 patients.
