Abstract

Translational deformities are common complications of conservatively managed bone fractures and some surgically managed fractures with unstable patterns. Realigning the bones can be difficult when soft tissue, scars and calluses form. These deformities can be easily corrected with hexapodalic-based external fixators, but these fixators are not widely available in developing countries. We describe a stable and reliable Ilizarov frame that can be used to treat these deformities and show results of clinical cases. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
