Genu valgum in children who received renal transplant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In 19 children who received renal transplants, 6 developed genu valgum one to two years after the transplantation. Except for one patient, biochemical blood and urine parameters were normal and bone radiograph showed no signs of renal osteodystrophy during this period. Two patients had bilateral varus supracondylar osteotomy, and in one patient medial hemistapling of the distal femur was performed.
