Illizarov Technique

The Ilizarov apparatus is used in surgical procedures to lengthen or reshape limb bones; to treat complex and/or open bone fractures and in cases of infected non-unions of bones that are not amenable with other techniques. The Ilizarov method is widely used to treat complex and/or open bone fractures. This method is preferred over conventional treatment options (such as internal fixator or cast) where there is a high risk of infection or the fracture is of such severity that internal fixators are unworkable
