[Correction of deformities with conventional and hexapod frames--comparison of methods].


AIM Distraction osteogenesis for the correction of deformities with an external fixator is well established. The hexapod principle of robotic technique was invented for the Ilisarov apparatus (e. g. Taylor-Spatial-Frame/TSF). Treatment with conventional frames needs a patient-customised frame mounting. This demanding procedure is markedly reduced using this… (More)
