Abstract


A case of treating a patient with tibial upper-third varus-and-recurvation deformity combined with the knee instability and limb shortening is demonstrated. The Ilizarov fixator use has allowed to restore the segment anatomical axis, as well as to compensate for the shortening with maintainance of the joint mobility. Surgical intervention contributed to the knee stability increase and limb weight-bearing recovery.
