ABSTRACT
[Objective]To study the correction of deformity with major bone defect by lengthening with different external fixators and to evaluate the results.[Method]From August 2000 to March 2004,7 patients suffering from deformity with major bone defect were treated by external fixators including Ilizarov, Orthofix LRS,and Hybrid external fixators combined with Orthofix LRS.Linar or wedged osteostomy was carried out at the deformity site.Wedged osteotomy and callus distraction were used for the cases of deformity with limb shortening,and compression of dock site combined with bone transport was used for those of deformity with bone defect and shortening.[Result]The cases corrected were 1 femur with anterior angular deformity and 7cm shortening,and 6 tibiae including 2 varus deformities,2 posterior angular deformities,and 2 complex deformities.The average length was 5.3cm(4.5~7 cm),with an average distraction time of 3.5 months and followed by an average time of external fixation of 7 months.There were no obvious complications,such as vascular and nerve injuries.The function of the adjacent knee and ankle was not affected.[Conclusion]External fixators including Ilizarov,Orthofix LRS and Hybrid external fixators may provide one of good alternatives for correction of deformity with major bone defect.Compared with Ilizarov,Orthofix LRS and Hybrid external fixators are more conventional,more advantaged,and preferred,especially for its distinct clamp which can provide multi-plane fixation and correct the deformity simultaneously with limb lengthening.
