FILIPPINI, Juan Pedro; LABORDA, Horacio  and  VINOLE, Nicolás. Compression-distraction in the treatment of distal tibial no union using the Ilizarov apparatus. Case report. Anfamed [online]. 2022, vol.9, n.2, e402.  Epub Dec 01, 2022. ISSN 2301-1254.

The Ilizarov method, with its different variants and using its apparatus, developed in the 1950s, is still valid, especially in the treatment of fracture complications, mainly those linked to infection and consolidation difficulties. We report 2 adult patients with a diagnosis of hypertrophic, rigid nonunion, with deformity, without active infection and without dysmetria, treated by the distraction and compression method performed with the Ilizarov device. In both cases, the alignment and consolidation of the limb was achieved with few complications.

Keywords : Hypertrophic nonunion; Internal fixation failure; Distraction osteogenesis; Ilizarov, case report.
