from Orthopedics Today
Through successful Ilizarov treatment, children with atrophic-type congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia can obtain satisfactory foot and ankle function at maturity, according to results. Researchers compared 24 patients who underwent Ilizarov treatment for unilateral atrophic-type congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia to a control group of 24 participants. Researchers assessed all patients with validated outcome questionnaires, radiographs, physical examination, instrumented motion analysis, including a multisegmental foot model, and pedobarographic measurement.
