BACKGROUND A recently proposed one-stage bone-transport surgical procedure exploits the intrinsic osteogenic potential of the periosteum while providing mechanical stability through intramedullary nailing. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of this technique to bridge massive long-bone defects in a single stage. METHODS With use of an ovine femoral model, an in situ periosteal sleeve was elevated circumferentially from healthy diaphyseal bone, which was osteotomized and… CONTINUE READING
