Evaluation on the outcome of management of infected Nonunion and Gap Nonunion fracture of long bones by Ilizarov method

Author(s): Dr. P Balasubramaniyan, Dr. Ashokan C and Dr. Kathir Azhagan S
Abstract: Subcutaneous bones like tibia are susceptible to compartment syndrome, wound infection, non-union, deformities, shortening and other problems. Duration of treatment and the cost of treatment of infected non-union and gap non-union causes a huge burden to the patient as well as to the treating institution. Distraction osteogenesis is a novel technique by which new bones can be created in the bone defects, limb lengthening to compensate shortening, rotational deformities can be corrected, soft tissue loss can be dealt with progressive histogenesis
