Radius Lengthening for
Wrist Deformity Correctio
Doctor: S. Robert Rozbruch
Eve broke her wrist a few years ago and injured the growth plate.
As a result, she developed a wrist deformity with pain. Note the shortening and deformity of the radius.
The radius was gradually lengthened and straightened with an Ilizarov/Taylor Spatial Frame. Bone graft and internal implants were not needed.
The frame was removed after
2 1/2 months.
Full correction was achieved.
