Traditional segment transport methods pose major soft tissue and bone problems related to the pin or K wire that fixes the transported bone segment through the soft tissue, especially excursion of the K wire. We designed the cable bone transport technique to prevent these problems and to increase patient comfort. Thirteen patients with bone defects (11 in(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the effectiveness of the Taylor spatial frame (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, TN, USA) in the treatment of complex lower extremity deformities. METHODS The Taylor spatial frame (TSF) was applied to 29 bone segments of 25 patients (12 females, 13 males; mean age 17 years). Indications for the TSF were congenital disorders (n=12), rickets(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the results of radial head excision in the treatment of comminuted radial head fractures.
