Abstract

In 68 patients with imperfectly united fracture of the crural bones who underwent treatment with the use of the Ilizarov's method, the processes of mineralization of the osseous regenerate being formed were studied. The most rapid deposition of the mineral substances was noted in gradual elimination of a deformity. In shortening of an extremity, the rate of mineralization depended on a size of the elongation performed. Increase in content of the osteotropic hormones and cyclic. nucleotides was indicative of the presence of favourable conditions for formation of osseous regenerate in correction of angular deformity by means of the Ilizarov's method.
