For decades, Ilizarov’s distraction osteogenesis using external fixation was the best option for limb lengthening. New advancing in medical technology now allow for less invasive alternatives. The Precice system eliminates the need for an external fixation frame or external fixation. External fixation frames are commonly associated with pin site infections and other complications.1
This innovative intramedullary limb lengthening system allows for a precise, controlled lengthening phase with the ability to shorten the device if necessary.
