Radius Lengthening for Wrist Deformity Correction

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.

Post-Op

The radius was gradually lengthened and straightened with an Ilizarov/Taylor Spatial Frame. Bone graft and internal implants were not needed.

Follow-Up

The frame was removed after 2 1/2 months.

Follow-Up

Full correction was achieved.
