Figure 5: At the age of 6 months Brown-procedure was performed on the left side, albeit in a modified way, i.e., a shortening osteotomy of the femur was considered in light of complete absence of the extensor apparatus. Therefore, centralisation of the proximal fibula onto the femoral notch (we used iliotibial notch as a cruciate ligament) a tunnel was drilled from the femoral notch towards the medial femoral condyle aiming to fix the band. Simultaneously, the quadriceps muscle was reconstructed with a part of the iliotibial band. The child could walk nicely using orthoprosthesis and a rollator. Recently her range of motion left knee S 0-0-75°, lack of extension right knee: S 0-40°-130°. Plantigrade left foot, tendency to adduction on the right side
