The Ilizarov method of transosseousosteosynthesis is the system of surgical and bloodless techniques for treating a great number of orthopaedic diseases and injuries both congenital and acquired. This system has been developed in Kurgan (Transurales, Russia) by an orthopaedic surgeon GavriilIlizarov and his team, researchers and surgeons of the Kurgan Institute for Traumatoloy and Orthopaedics. The system has continued to be developed after Ilizarov’s death at the Russian Ilizarov Scientific Center for Restorative Traumatology and Orthopaedics named after him. The system includes more than 800 techniques with the use of the Ilizarov external fixator for long bones, external minifixator for short bones, transpedicular external fixator for the spine and external systems that are used for pelvic orthopaedic conditions and skull pathology. The Ilizarov and his team were the first in the world to discover biological regularities to control genesis and growth of bone tissue, and applied them for bone regeneration and shape-forming, bone reconstruction and restoration.
