Hardware and Osteotomy Considerations

  • Dror PaleyEmail author


This chapter was originally published in my book Principles of Deformity Correction in 2002. I was asked to publish this chapter for this new book of my colleagues from Istanbul University. Because of the limited page numbers and images, this time I had to extract some of the topics which are originally mentioned in this chapter. However, you will be able to find more information about extracted topics on related chapters all along the book, and you can also look for Principles of Deformity Correction in Chap.  11 (Paley D: Principles of Deformity Correction. Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 2002).
