About this book

Consisting of case studies contributed by both domestic and international leaders in the field, this atlas will be an invaluable resource for all orthopedic surgeons and researchers and practitioners of limb lengthening, deformity correction and the Ilizarov method. Comprehensive yet accessible, it will cover pediatrics, foot and ankle, trauma and post-traumatic reconstruction, adult deformity, tumor and upper extremity interventions in dedicated sections. Each of theĀ  unique cases will include color photographs and radiographs from before, during and after surgery and will follow a consistent chapter structure which outlines a brief clinical history of the case, preoperative problem list, treatment strategy, basic principles, technical pearls and how to avoid and manage complications and subsequent problems. Suggested readings round out each case. A comprehensive presentation of techniques will be featured, including external fixation, internal fixation, combination approaches and fully implantable limb lengthening nails. This case-based approach will be an efficient and thorough way to learn this exciting new frontier in orthopedic surgery.
