7). The columnar arrangement of the chondrocytes in the transitional region from cartilage to bone indicated that the mode of ossification was endochondral. Some longitudinal fibres, however, appeared to translate directly into new bone, suggesting the participation of another mechanism. Round hypertrophic cells between the longitudinal fibres morphologically resembled chondrocytes (Fig. 5), but did not necessarily produce cartilage matrix and seemed to change directly into osteogenic cells. As lengthening proceeded, the endochondral bone formation declined and the direct bone formation became more prominent.

2,3 Paley et all? evaluated the mechanical properties of different external fixators used in limb lengthening. They concluded that the Orthofix unilateral fixator with the thick half pin system was the most rigid and the Ilizarov circular fixator with a cross-wire tension system was the least rigid with respect to stiffness, shear, and axial motion. Recently, the Ilizarov system has been modified in western countries, and it is now possible to connect half pins to a circular frame. We believe that, although some micromotion may stimulate callus formation during the distraction phase, it may delay bone union during the neutralization period.
