A Prospective Study of Analysis of the Treatment of Infected Nonunion of Long Bones Using Monolateral External Fixator

Author(s): Avinash B and Subramanian K*

Abstract

The purpose of the study is to analyze the outcome of treatment of complex infected Non-unions of long bones using the Monolateral external fixator (The dynamic external fixation system and Rail fixation system) and to establish its efficacy in order to bring about sound union and at the same time being able to correct any bone length discrepancy. The Monolateral external fixator is variable telescopic device that can be locked for rigid fixation or unlocked to permit load sharing and dynamization. Being light weight and patient friendly the patients can perform day to day activities with the fixator in situ, Since the pins are unilateral it is much more comfortable for the patients, hence joint mobilization can be done simultaneously with the fixator in situ. Being rigid, early weight bearing can be allowed with the device. Patient themselves can be taught how to take care of pin and fixator hygeine and also do the lengthening procedure themselves.
