Introduction.- Principle and method of deformity correction in lower extremity.- Application of Ilizarov technique.- Application of Chinese Hybrid external fixator.- Congenital deformities of lower limb.- Lower limb deformities in Hereditary and Metabolic diseases.- Lower limb deformities in Cerebral palsy.- Lower limb deformities in Poliomyelitis sequelae.- Lower limb deformities in Trauma and Infection.- Lower limb deformities in Immunopathy diseases.- Lower limb deformities in children.- Bone nonunion, bone defect, and osteomyelitis.- Genu varus, genu valgum with osteoarthritis.- Procurvatum and Recurvatum of the Knee.- Lower limb deformities in Spinal Bifida.- Lower limb deformities in Blood circulation disorder disease.- Lower limb deformities in Iatrogenic and social factors.- Short stature.
The diagnosis and treatment described in this book is based on the combination of Ilizarov technique, Paley's principle and Qinsihe Natural Reconstruction theory. It covers all kinds of lower limb deformities, ranging from congenital deformities to acquired deformities, the sequelae of Poliomyelitis, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida Sequelae, Traumatic Sequelae, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, Osteogenesis Imperfecta and Congenital Pseudarthrosis Tibia, etc. There are also lots of clinical tips and tricks such as how to reduce radiation exposure during orthopaedic surgeries, how to correct multiple limb deformities in one stage, how to balance the dynamic muscle in complex foot and ankle deformities, and how to successfully accomplish the surgery of difficult lower limb reconstruction without allogeneic blood transfusion, etc.
It is a valuable reference for orthopaedic surgeons and advanced trainees worldwide who interested in deformity correction and limb reconstruction.
