Özet

Background: External fixators are being used frequently in standard limb-lengthening and deformity-correction procedures. Lengthening over an intramedullary nail has been a successful technique, and fixator-assisted intramedullary nailing has provided satisfactory results for the correction of selected deformities. We report a combined technique for the treatment of femoral deformities associated with shortening.
