A modified Wagner technique using an Orthofix was employed for femoral lengthening in 62 skeletally mature patients with residual poliomyelitis. The first stage was similar to that of the original Wagner technique. However, distraction was started after 5 to 7 days at a rate of 1.5 mm per day. At the second stage, a neutralization plate was applied and a corticocancellous iliac strut graft inserted in the distracted site, preferably under compression. Cast immobilisation was not used and a long leg brace with a thigh corset allowed early knee movement and weightbearing. The average age at operation was 26 years and 6 months. The period of follow-up averaged 3 years and 2 months, and the average amount of lengthening was 4.2 cm. The overall rate of complication was 34%.
