A pre fabricated construct in Ilizarov fixation

This is a demonstration of a prefabricated ring construct in a stiff A2 type of tibial hypertrophic non union. The three ring assembly is fabricated one day before surgery. Wires of one plane are passed through all rings after appropriate reduction. Once the frame position is adjusted, the perpendicular wires are passed. An occasional olive wire gives additional stability.
