Gradual mechanical distraction with the Ilizarov external fixator was used on 28 limbs in 23 patients to correct complex lower-extremity deformities of diverse causes. To determine the accuracy of realignment and deformity correction, the charts and radiographs were reviewed retrospectively. Preoperative long-standing anteroposterior radiographs of the entire lower extremity were compared with those obtained at the most recent follow-up visit. The parameters used to assess accuracy of… CONTINUE READING
