Abstract

Nonunions of long bone fractures represent a clinical entity that is commonly perpetuated by a high velocity injury. There are both bony and soft tissue factors responsible for the nonunion. This paper is focused on the reported clinical and radiographic outcomes whenever treatment protocols pertaining to distraction osteogenesis are implemented.
