Our experience of device-using surgical treatment of lower limb axial deformities in children

., ., .

Abstract


The results of treatment of 55 patients with different deformities of the lower extremity have been studied. Among them 18 patients were treated conservatively, 37 patients – surgically. Operative correction of the deformities of lower limb axis was performed in 37 patients. The closed perforative method of osteotomy using the Ilizarov fixator was used in 34 patients among them to correct axial deformities and limb shortenings, and osteotomy with triangular regenerated bone augmentation was performed in 3 patients. The perforative method of osteotomy with the Ilizarov fixator application in children is an effective method of little damage.
