Chapter

Abstract

Every long bone has two axes, the anatomic axis and the mechanical axis. In order to have a better understanding before analyzing the deformities, these axes and the relations between them and some terms of use must be understood.

In this chapter frontal plane deformities and drawing axes of the long bones will be explained.
