Abstract

Correction of equinus contracture of feet offers the chance for ambulation. The case reported here describes a 34-year-old paraplegic woman with scald burn resulted in equinus contractures of both feet associated with extensive scar formation who received the Ilizarov external skeletal fixation for the equinus correction and completed the ambulation training program. This technique offers a new horizon in the correction of joints contractures and deformities in traumatized patient as well as in patient suffering from spinal cord injury.
