PMID:  20306977     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The history of a 17-year-old female patient with pseudoachondroplasia, with an extreme bilateral genu recurvatum due to tibial growth disturbance, is presented. She was treated by the Ilizarov method over a nine- month period for consecutive bilateral correction of the lower legs, leading to an excellent functional result. The authors advocate the Ilizarov method as the treatment of choice for severe juxtaarticular osseous deformities, where the technical limits of a standard osteotomy with internal fixation are being exceeded.
