Bottom Line: A subtrochanteric osteotomy was made in an oblique cut, from the internal side to the external side and from proximal to distal for coxa vara, or by using a cuneiform resection associated with muscular disinsertions.Burnei's technique is simple; it corrects the varus and valgus deviations concomitantly with Sofield-Millar.Even though only a telescopic rod is used, no stress fractures were seen postoperatively, deviation recurrence or assembly loss.

ABSTRACT

Background: Varus or valgus deviations of the femoral neck in osteogenesis imperfecta have been an ignored chapter because the classic correction procedures were applied in medical practice with unsatisfying results. Until the use of telescopic rods, coronal deviations remained unsolved and the distal configuration of the proximal femoral extremity remained uncorrected or partially corrected, which required an extensive use of the wheel chair or bed immobilization of the patient. The concomitant correction of the complex deformities, coxa vara/valga and femoral integrated configuration, have been a progress which allowed the patients to walk with or without support.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to present the Burnei's technique, a therapeutic alternative in deformity corrections of the varus or valgus hip in children with osteogenesis imperfecta.

Study design: The paper is about a retrospective study done in a single center, which analyses Burnei technique and other procedures described in literature.

Patient sample: The content of the article is based on a 12 years experience on a batch of 51 patients with osteogenesis imperfecta from which 10 patients (13 hips) presented frontal plane deviations of the femoral neck.

Outcome measures: All the patients with osteogenesis imperfecta who presented coxa vara or valga were submitted to investigations with the purpose of measuring blood loss, the possibility of extending the surgical intervention to the leg, the association of severe deformities of the proximal extremity of the femur and the necessity of postoperative intensive care. Burnei's technique: The operation was first performed in 2002. A subtrochanteric osteotomy was made in an oblique cut, from the internal side to the external side and from proximal to distal for coxa vara, or by using a cuneiform resection associated with muscular disinsertions. Only telescopic rods were used for osteosynthesis.

Discussions: There are a few articles in literature, which approach corrections of vara or valgus deviations in osteogenesis imperfecta. Some of them are the techniques described by Finidori, Wagner and Fassier.

Conclusions: Burnei's technique is simple; it corrects the varus and valgus deviations concomitantly with Sofield-Millar. Even though only a telescopic rod is used, no stress fractures were seen postoperatively, deviation recurrence or assembly loss.

Figure 6: Intraoperative aspect after the oblique osteotomy for the correction of varus deviation

Mentions: The osteotomy was subtrochanteric, obliquely, upward from lateral to medial performed, at the calculated angle for correction. The rod was obliquely inserted, anterograde through the piriformis fossa and it was exteriorized through the external cortex of the proximal femur while regarding the correction angle (Fig. 6). The Sheffield or Fassier-Duval telescopic rod was inserted through the medullary canal of the shaft by using a classic approach or a minimally invasive one.
