The Ilizarov device has revolutionized the treatment of non-healing fractures and the correction of deformities. This book supplies all the information required in order to use the Ilizarov and other external fixation devices optimally; it will serve as an indispensable manual for both trainee and experienced orthopedic surgeons. Biomechanical principles, preoperative preparation, and the use of a system of coordinates to allow safer insertion of K-wires and half pins are thoroughly discussed. External fixation of a variety of fractures in different pathologic settings is then clearly explained in a series of detailed chapters with the aid of high-quality illustrations. Numerous case reports are included to illustrate the results of different treatment methods. In addition, postoperative management and treatment of complications are described. Since the first edition the text has been thoroughly updated, with inclusion of contributions from leading world experts.Springer, New York Seide K, Gerlach U, Inden Ph, Bohn B, Juergens Ch (2008) Dimensional corrections with the Hexapod system ... and external fixation devices on the base of computer navigation (Taylor Spatial Frame, Ilizarov Hexapod Apparatus, SUV-Frame). ...
