· 骨延长手术十分常见,它给予了人们增高的机会。然而,这样的手术非常痛苦,可能还会有后患。骨科医师 Amr Abdelgawad 开发了一种新方法,或许可以取代原先“残忍”的手术。传统的骨延长手术需要将腿骨从中截断,然后在腿部外围钉入厚重的金属固定器。随着时间流逝,固定器逐渐将腿骨的两部分撑开,让骨组织生长合拢。(http://www.cnbeta.com)

· Painless increased! This technology give out http://baike.chengdu.cn/2015/1216/1750267.shtml Dec 16, 2015 Amr Abdelgawad提出的新方法是,将一个轻薄的金属片植入腿中和腿骨固定。患者可以自行采用遥控手段来拉伸金属片,让腿骨得到伸展。
