Principles of Deformity Correction is a comprehensive text on the anal ysis, planning, and treatment of lower limb deformities in an accessib le and instructive format. It teaches the analysis, planning, and meth ods of deformity correction. A foundation of understanding normal alig nment is presented, using new nomenclature that is easy to remember an d can even be derived without memorization. The work offers detailed i nformation on deformities and malalignment, radiographic assessment, m echanical and anatomic axis planning, osteotomies, and hardware consid erations. The book is extensively illustrated to avoid confusion and t o leave little to the imagination. The planning is further facilitated via an exercise workbook and an animated CD-ROM which is available se parately. The methods taught are simple and intuitive and require litt le memorization. This book is of equal interest to pediatric and adult orthopaedic surgeons.The real mechanical accuracy using manual adjustment of the struts for even a full six-axis deformity correction has been measured to within 0.7Ad and 2 mm. To treat a specific deformity with the spatial frame, one must determine the frameanbsp;...
