Composite Bone and Soft Tissue Transport for Treatment of Bone Defects
To treat bone defects is one of the difficult and demanding challenges of orthopaedics. Limb length deficiency and bone defects produced by tumor excision, osteomyelitis and traumatic bone loss are treated successfully by distraction osteo-genesis or calotasis. This study examines 10 cases of bone defects produced by tumor excision or traumatic bone loss mana-ged by distraction osteogenesis using monolateral Naseer Awais external fixator. All the bony defects healed during the process of bone transport. Distraction osteogenesis is a reliable method for composite bone and soft tissue transport for treatment of bone defects.
