Abstract


The work deals with the problems of forefoot bone lengthening in patients congenital developmental anomalies and posttraumatic defects of the foot. Lengthening was performed using the transosseous osteosynthesis method according to Ilizarov. Different configurations of the fixator optimally appropriated for specific clinical situation were used depending on shortening localization, the number of pathologically changed foot rays and patient’s age. The lengthening required was performed in all the patients. The immediate and long-term results of treatment have been analyzed.
