Patient Case History: Eve

Radius Lengthening for Wrist Deformity Correction


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
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.


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


The frame was removed after 2 1/2 months.


Full correction was achieved.
