Ilizarov technique

(i-liz'ă-rof),
a method of promoting controlled osteogenesis to lengthen bone and correct angular and rotational deformities, in which gradually increasing force is applied to the apposed fragments of a surgically divided bone by an external fixation frame.
See also: Ilizarov device.
Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary © Farlex 2012
Any of a group of techniques for bone regeneration, in which a long bone, usually of the lower extremity, is intentionally fractured and held in place for a short period of time, then slowly distracted with an external fixator
Applications Bone defects—e.g., discrepancies in leg length, dwarfism, fracture nonunions, osteomyelitis, angular defects

Transosseous osteosynthesis. Theoretical and clinical aspects of the regeneration and growth of tissue.
To stabilize the bone fragments in such cases one should use the simplest construction--rod unit with unilateral support in the form of beams and brackets from the set for transosseous osteosynthesis by Ilizarov.
Our results, obtained during the 18-month follow-up period, demonstrated that the application of transosseous osteosynthesis by the Ilizarov apparatus along with early rehabilitation therapy resulted in improved functional outcome (good according to Karlstrom-Olerud) in the treatment of open and closed multiple intra-articular fractures of the proximal tibia in the majority of patients, which is comparable with similar published studies [39-43].
Transosseous osteosynthesis with the Ilizarov apparatus in our experience and in the experience of most authors has proved to be significantly superior to the traditional methods of osteosynthesis (ORIF), because it reduces the risk of infection, and enables good management with bone fragments [47].
