Popis The aim of the study is to present results of our experience with 8-figure plate system for treatment of angular deformities of lower limbs. 19 patients underwent surgery using 8-plates for correction of angular deformities with diagnosis of genu valgum or genua valga. Clinical evaluation and X-ray documentation was performed on regular basis including clinical measurements of intermal-leolar distance (IMD) and radiological assessment of lateral distal femoral angle (LDFA) and medial proximal tibial angle (MPTA). Average preoperative measurements were IMD=15.8 cm, LDFA=81° and MPTA=97°. At the time of hardware removal, average LDFA raised to 89° (87-92) and average MPTA lowered to 88° (86-89). The hardware was removed in 9.1 months after surgery in average. No complications were observed. 8-plates appeared to be optimal treatment option for correction of angular lower limb deformities showing advantages over the Blount's staples. It also brings the possibility to intervene in children younger than 10 years of age.
