Figure : Radiographs of a 13-year-old boy with a segmented fracture of the femur and damage of the distal femoral epiphysis (A, B). AP (C) and lateral (D) radiographs before frame application (1 year after trauma) showing distal femoral valgus, recurvatum, and external rotation. AP (E) and lateral (F) radiographs during correction showing regenerate of angulation. Note the distal fragment fixed with 1 ring and only 2 half pins. Radiograph after addition of the second ring and four 1.8 Ilizarov wires (G). Radiograph of normal femoral alignment after frame removal (H).
