Abstract

The Ilizarov method of circular external fixation has remarkable benefits in treating bone deformities. It relies on unique external fixation devices and distraction osteogenesis. Rings placed around the limbs are interconnected with threaded rods and fixed to the bone using small-diameter wires under tension. The angle and distance between rings can be changed, leading to change in the shape of the bone. With distraction osteogenesis, new bone forms at the osteotomy site when it is slowly distracted after surgery.
