Case Reports English Abstract Journal Article
The authors describe the progressive correction of a deformed forearm and an ulnar deviation of the hand as a result of a bullet wound. The injury comprised a fracture of the two bones of the forearm, with deformed callus and after effects of a probable Volkmann syndrome. The correction was obtained after 10 months. This report illustrates the interest and the difficulty presented by osteogenesis by distraction and osteotomy with a minimal cutaneous wound. This allows the reduction of risk to the cutaneum and vessels involved in extemporaneous corrections.
