Abstract

A new generation of internal lengthening nail is now available that has reliable remote-controlled mechanisms. This allows accurate and well-controlled distraction rate and rhythm, and early clinical results have been very positive. In this article, 2 posttraumatic cases are presented that illustrate deformity correction and lengthening using the internal lengthening nail. Surgical planning and adjuvant techniques of fixator-assisted nailing and the use of blocking screws are discussed.
