Abstract

The Ilizarov fixator was used to correct chronic burn deformities of the foot and ankle. These contractures can be classified as 'simple' or 'complex' based on associated deformities and musculoskeletal function. The simple, unidirectional deformities of equinus, cavus, rockerbottom, and toe dislocations are fairly easy to correct and maintain. Correction and maintenance of complex deformities with varus or valgus angulation, bone abnormality, or muscle loss are more difficult.
