Abstract

Objective: To determine whether the childhood component of the infancy-childhood-puberty (ICP) model is appropriate for growth analysis of short Israeli children. Subjects and Methods: From 204 short, prepubertal children, 2-16 years of age, 1,516 height measurements were analyzed. For each child's measurements, a best-fitted line based on C equation of ICP has been drawn and the distribution of measurement points around that line was calculated. Results: Ninety percent of the measurements were at a distance of no more than ±2 cm from the best-fitted ICP line. Conclusion: The C component of ICP model can be used as a growth analysis tool for shorter than average, prepubertal, Israeli children, older than 2 years of age.
