This book details the protocol of staged external fixation developed by the authors: primary temporary unilateral tubular stabilization followed by definitive circular Ilizarov (hybrid) fixation. Coverage explains and fully illustrates the rationale and advantages of a logical progression of surgical steps. The book draws from an archive of clinical photographs and X-ray documentation that cover all steps in a large variety of complex cases.

"...In this book, the authors make an eloquent plea for extensive use of external fixator technology to avoid secondary injury to extremities when fractures include significant soft tissue injury. While the damage control specialist will treasure this book for the quality of illustrations alone, the orthopedist treating war or terrorism injuries may benefit from the perspectives presented here." (D.J. Dries, University of Minnesota Medical School, Doody's)
