Камерин В.К., Пожарищенский К.Э.

Abstract


A male patient S., 25 years old, who had Group II invalidism, was treated at RSC “RTO” for posttraumatic tibial defect , complicated by chronic osteomyelitis with marked scarry process of leg and trophic ulcer. The technique for reconstructive tibialization of fibula by formation of its duplication was successfully used in this case. The tibial defect was substituted, segmental shortening was corrected, and limb weight-bearing was restored.
