However, in the process of implementing this technology, its main drawbacks were revealed: the duration of treatment and the slowing down of the process of osteogenesis in the elongation zone. Rapid distraction in the external fixator or with an intramedullary rod can lead to a slowdown in osteogenesis and soft tissue complications, including neuropathy and soft tissue eruption.The aim — to develop a present its own concept of stimulating distraction osteogenesis in limb elongation, based on many years of clinical experience.Materials and Methods.
