The present paper is devoted to the investigations of mappings with finite distortion in $$$\mathbb{R}^n$$$, $$$n \geqslant 2$$$. In the work it is proved that every open discrete mapping with finite distortion by Iwaniec such that the branch set of $$$f$$$ is of measure zero is a mapping with finite length distortion provided that the corresponding outer dilatation satisfies the inequality $$$K_O (x, f) \leqslant K(x)$$$ a.e., where $$$K(x) \in L_{loc}^{n-1}(D)$$$.
