Bone elongation using monolateral external fixation: a practical guide.

Salcedo Cánovas C - Strategies Trauma Limb Reconstr (2015)

Bottom Line: In the literature, we can find many articles that describe in detail specific complex procedures related to the limb reconstruction.These articles also come from a period in which the callotasis technique was being developed and, therefore, incur in discrepancies depending on the year they were written or the school of the author.This paper provides a general and summarised overview of the theoretical and practical aspects interesting to a surgeon that needs clear information on the bone elongations performed with the help of a monolateral external fixator.

ABSTRACT
In the literature, we can find many articles that describe in detail specific complex procedures related to the limb reconstruction. However, the general information on the biological and mechanical bases of callotasis is out of date, and the surgeons must relate to works dating from the early 1980s. These articles also come from a period in which the callotasis technique was being developed and, therefore, incur in discrepancies depending on the year they were written or the school of the author. This paper provides a general and summarised overview of the theoretical and practical aspects interesting to a surgeon that needs clear information on the bone elongations performed with the help of a monolateral external fixator.

Mentions: Assuming we choose a monolateral system, it would be interesting to use a fixator with a single bar that controls the lateral and anteroposterior bending and the torsional forces (Fig. 3). It should allow for controlled distraction, the application of compression at will and the transmission of dynamically axial load once the callus has been formed [12, 11].Fig. 3
