Nine patients have undergone percutaneous epiphysiodesis using a 4.5-mm drill and image intensification fluoroscopy. The minimal surgical exposure resulted in minimal postoperative discomfort, excellent cosmesis, and complete closure of the physis in all patients in three to five months. No complications were encountered. The procedure is easy to perform and reliable.
