Transosseous compression-distraction osteosynthesis by Ilizarov in orthopaedic rehabilitation of patients with primary tumors of leg bones

., ., .

Abstract


We have gained the experience of treatment of 46 patients with primary tumors of leg bones using transosseous osteosynthesis. In patients with bone sarcoma transosseous osteosynthesis techniques were used after the preliminary stage of treatment measures including radical and ablastic tumor resection with the appropriate complex of neoadjuvant chemotherapy. In the group of patients with benign tumors the rehabilitation measures for anatomic-and-functional recovery of the limb operated were made in a single-stage fashion. The use of the transosseous osteosynthesis technologies according to Ilizarov has allowed to fill post-resection bone defects, as well as to achieve optimal limb reconstruction not only in adults, but also in children with incomplete skeletal formation.
