This site is to be a place for meeting between patients and there doctor. It’s was founded for the study and application of Methods of Ilizarov and deferent external fixation approaches, for the study of Ilizarov Laws during limb reconstructions, which used for the treatment of various orthopedic disorders such as fractures, non united fractures, congenital and acquired deformities, infections, lengthening etc.
We invite you all to explore our web, submit your comments, Suggestions share by cases and topics, and explore our expanding library of Orthopaedic links and resources.
Professor Gavril Abramovich Ilizarov was born in the USSR, in the Soviet Union in 1921. Although of illiterate parents, he advanced quickly through medical school, eventually going on to practice medicine in the Kurgan region of Siberia in 1943.
Patients with discrepancy of less than 3 cm. should avoid bone lengthening and go in for other alternatives. Bone lengthening is appropriate for discrepancies between 3 cm. and 40 cm.
Limb length discrepancy (LLD) is a measurable difference in the length of the limbs (upper or lower). The lower limbs length discrepancy is more common and troublesome than upper limbs length discrepancy.
Shortening one of the legs can cause a lot of problems for the patient: such as- low back pain, limping, lumbar Scoliosis, and degenerative changes in the opposite side and cosmetic problems
A cut in the bone by using the Ilizarov ring external fixator, give us a possibility to pull the bone fragments (distraction maximum of 1.5 mm/day), and between them the bone well grow up. First Ilizarov low is: The very slow distraction allows bone to form new bone between two old ends. The device lengthens the bone and stimulates cells to regenerate, thus creating new bone that is as strong as the original bone.
YES!!! For Example: -Ilizarov’s method of treatment can be used for about one thousand different types of bone, joint and soft tissue cases.
