Hi Colleen,
I have been searching everywhere for any med journal papers or data on what occurs when growth rods are inserted into a child (that is still growing,) and the growth rods are subsequently not extended as per standard process (every six months – left for over 3 years)

I was wondering if you are aware of any such info or could suggest where I could look for it please?
Thank you
Linda
