Abstract: Ilizarov's method of percutaneous transosseous osteosynthesis allows management of complex skeletal deformities using elastic external fixation, atraumatic corticotomy and gradual adaptations between bony fragments. One particular application, useful in the reconstruction of bony defects, is the "lift" or "bone transport" technique, in which in fact internal lengthening is carried out. Using some of their first cases as illustrations, the authors describe the technique and its potential problems.
