3C45

Diaphyseal deformity in a short tibia.

(a) 53000 fixator in place with Micrometric Swivelling Clamp distally; osteotomies: proximal for lengthening, distal for correction.

(b) Distal: initial lengthening to stretch soft tissues slowly. Acute shortening and angular correction by callus manipulation. Proximal: lengthening by callotasis after normal waiting period.

Caution: Resect at least 1 cm of fibula; distal syndesmosis screw.
Peroneal nerve: no acute correction of valgus deformity.
