LRS Pediatric Fixation SystemThe Rail Fixation system consists of an assembly of clamps (usually two or three), which can slide on a rigid rail and can be connected by compression distraction units.The Rail Fixation System may be used for the fracture fixation, for correctingdiaphyseal deformities, metaphyseal deformities with or without shortening,correction of bony or soft tissue deformities, limb lengthening, for treating nonunionand malunion and bone transport application. In comminuted fractures with bone loss and in situation of non-union or malunion, with or without some degree of osteoporosis, the Rail Fixation System may be used to obtain maximum stability, since the construction of the device enable the positions of the clamps for the bone screw to be varied over the whole length of the bone, depending upon the length of rail used.
Multilevel SurgeryThe Rail Fixation System is designed primarily for segmental (multilevel) surgery.Here, the three main indications for its use are: bone loss, with or withoutshortening; shortening with deformity, and extreme shortening. The system providesfor correction in these situations through the techniques of bone transport,compression-distraction and bifocal lengthening.
