Since the 1950s when Dr. Gavriil A. Ilizarov first developed the ILIZAROV External Fixator, it has been used in more than 1 million cases worldwide. Available in the West since 1981, the ILIZAROV External Fixator has proven itself as an unequaled fracture reduction device. The original IILIZAROV can be assembled in more than 600 different ways. With the advent of the ILIZAROV System, that number is even higher.
Today, in addition to the original ILIZAROV, the ILIZAROV System includes:
- The Acute Trauma ILIZAROV II. It provides the same stability and versatility of the original with increased ease of application in the acute trauma setting.
- The HEX-FIX/ILIZAROV Hybrid Frame,which combines the versatility of the original ILIZAROV with the simplicity of the HEX-FIX System.
- The ILIZAROV Small Bone Fixation System, which can be used for small, pediatric and upper extremity applications
