Ilizarov hip reconstruction for the late sequelae of infantile hip infection
Bone Diseases, Infectious
Joint Deformities, Acquired
The Ilizarov hip reconstruction can successfully correct a Trendelenburg gait and simultaneously restore knee alignment and correct lower-extremity length discrepancy. When the procedure is performed on a young patient, remodeling of the proximal osteotomy site and development of lower-extremity length discrepancy should be expected and the procedure may need to be repeated.
