Take the advantage of controlled external fixation and applying a classic internal nail to decrease the cost and limit the period of external fixation only to the lengthening period which is 10-12 weeks maximum.
Eirther using a computer assisted external fixator for 6 axes deformity correction or lengthening or using conventional monolateral LRS Orthofix or ring fixator as Ilizarov frame, we can reach our goal of lengthening or deformity correction.
Children has special needs and also special sizes of the fixators that suite their needs and decrease much the pain during the procedure. We should not operate children in the same way as adults at all !
Professor Elbatrawy uses all techniques as LON, LTN and FAN and FAP in which an external fixator is used to correct the deformity only during the operation then used the internal fixation and remove the fixator. So it combine between accuracy of external correction and comfortability of internal fixation
