The epiphyseal bar, or physis bar, refers to a deformity of the long bones that a fracture, injury, or infection cause. It leads to fusion of the epiphysis to metaphysis and results in premature arrest, or stoppage, of bone growth. By excising the epiphyseal bar and replacing it with autogenous fat tissue, the provider can restore the process of bone growth.
