The present study investigates the effect of distraction frequency on the development of tensile force in the tissues during lengthening. Two patients with bilateral Ilizarov leg lengthening underwent distraction with high frequency in one leg and low frequency in the other. The clinical situation represented a unique model for investigating the effect of(More)
