Distal valgus deformity in a short femur; LRS ADVanced with Micrometric Swivelling Clamp. (a) 53000 series fixator in place with Micrometric Swivelling Clamp distally. (b) Distal osteotomy; distal clamp loosened; acute correction of deformity. Caution: Correct translation. (c) Lengthening at proximal osteotomy site. Use of HA-coated screws is recommended.

3A.33

Proximal varus deformity in a short femur. LRS ADVanced with Multiplanar Clamp. (a) 53000 series fixator in place with Multiplanar Clamp proximally; osteotomy performed and initial lengthening by callotasis to stretch soft tissues. (b) Acute shortening and correction by callus manipulation, and completion of lengthening. Use of HA-coated screws is recommended.
