The contribution of G.A. Ilizarov and the school created by him into the development of transosseous osteosynthesis method



The data of the development of the transosseous osteeosynthesis method according to Ilizarov are presented from historical point of view. To substantiate the potentials of the fixator use in treatment of traumatologic-and-orthopaedic patients the author (G.A. Ilizarov) had performed six series of the experiments allowing to determine the effects of the rigidity of bone fragment fixation, blood supply, preservation of osteogenic elements – periosteum, endosteum, bone marrow – on osteogenesis process and consolidation periods. New medical technologies of treatment of patients with pseudoarthroses and bone defects, limb lengthening and limb deformity correction had been developed on the basis of the data obtained. Further studies demonstrated that the transosseous osteosynthesis method could be used in the allied medical disciplines: neurosurgery, stomatology, oncology, angiology, the hand surgery and others.
