By S. Robert Rozbruch, Reggie c. Hamdy

Consisting of case reviews contributed through either household and overseas leaders within the box, this can be a useful source for all orthopedic surgeons and researchers and practitioners of limb lengthening, deformity correction and the Ilizarov approach. complete but available, this quantity covers accidents to the foot and ankle in addition to orthopedic trauma, from foot and ankle fusions and clubfoot correction to femoral and tibial reconstruction. all the distinct situations comprises colour pictures and radiographs from sooner than, in the course of and after surgical procedure and should stick with a constant bankruptcy constitution which outlines a quick medical historical past of the case, preoperative challenge record, remedy procedure, simple rules, technical pearls and the way to prevent and deal with problems and next difficulties. advised readings around out every one case. A accomplished presentation of concepts is featured, together with exterior fixation, inner fixation, mix methods and entirely implantable limb lengthening nails. This case-based procedure is a good and thorough method to research this intriguing new frontier in orthopedic surgery.

Example text

Usually all the deformities are corrected in one surgery only, a quicker return to daily activities is usually possible (although the patient may be non-weight-bearing or toe touching) and the absence of any of the problems associated with external fixation. The use of fixator-assisted acute correction could increase the accuracy of acute correction. Disadvantages of acute correction include a lack of post-op adjustability: No further adjustment of the correction could be made. Furthermore, any associated LLD could not be addressed at the same time.

Extremely versatile. 4. Allows adjustments during correction of the deformities. The inability to obtain a standing hip to ankle radiograph during surgery limits the precision of an intra-operative correction. With external fixation stabilization, the position can be changed acutely or gradually after a standing hip to ankle radiograph is obtained and the appropriate mechanical axis analysis is performed. 5. Allows certain amount of axial loading, which is beneficial for bone healing. 6. Can be used in the presence of acute and chronic infection.
