Radius Lengthening for
Wrist Deformity Correction

Doctor: S. Robert Rozbruch

Patient: Eve

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.
