Femoral lengthening using the Intramedullary Skeletal Kinetic Distractor is a new technique. However, with intramedullary distraction the surgeon has less control over the lengthening process. Therefore, 33 femora lengthened with this device were assessed to evaluate the effect of operative variables under the surgeon's control on the course of lengthening.(More)
OBJECTIVE Avoidance of potential iatrogenic nerve injury during insertion of Ilizarov fine wires into areas of high anatomic risk by using a modified nerve stimulation technique. INDICATIONS Application of the Ilizarov ring fixator to areas of high anatomic hazard, in situations where anatomic topography may be distorted by previous surgery, trauma, or(More)
Vermeidung potentieller iatrogener Nervenschädigungen beim Einbringen von Ilisarov-Drähten in anatomische Hochrisikoregionen durch Verwendung einer modifizierten Nervenstimulationstechnik. Anlage eines Ilisarov-Ringfixateurs in Regionen mit hohem Verletzungsrisiko anatomisch wichtiger Strukturen, bei veränderter anatomischer Topographie durch vorhergehende(More)
AIMS The aim of this double-blind prospective randomised controlled trial was to assess whether low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) accelerated or enhanced the rate of bone healing in adult patients undergoing distraction osteogenesis. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 62 adult patients undergoing limb lengthening or bone transport by distraction(More)
