Background: The non-vascularised fibular graft is unique as fibula regenerates at the donor site .The literature on regeneration of fibula after extracting non- vascularised fibular grafts in children is limited. Material and methods: This was retrospective study. Analysis of fibular regeneration at the donor site following extraction of non-vascularised fibular graft was done. All these patients were evaluated minimum two years after the index procedure. The radiological regeneration quantified in percentage by calculating the area of both operated and normal limb. Results: 28 patients were included in this study. The average patient age was 9.38 years. There was no pain or neuromuscular deficit in the operated limb .The mean follow up of 39.8 months. The continuity of the fibula in the longitudinal was restored in 25 cases.
