Mosely Straight Line

- See: Growth Deformities of the Limbs:

- Discussion:
    - 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.
