Bone tumor reconstruction with the Ilizarov method
Leg Length Inequality
Reconstructive Surgical Procedures
The Ilizarov method is an effective technique for limb reconstruction of bone tumors, although extended time in external fixation is required. Since no one in this group received simultaneous chemotherapy or radiotherapy, we cannot comment on use of the Ilizarov method with these treatments. Further use and clinical follow-up is warranted.
