Abstract|ملخص البحث

Objectives: The Objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of Ilizarov frame fixation on functional outcome in aseptic tibial non-union cases. Methods: In this clinical study, 12 cases of posttraumatic aseptic tibial non-union were selected. After blood analysis and clinical assessment, the aseptic nonunion cases underwent ilizarov fixation for their problem. The pre and post-surgery functional outcome was measured by modified functional evaluation system by Karlstrom-Olerud. Results: Out of the 12 patients, 3 females and 9 males, 5 had non-union of type A and were treated by compression technique. the other 7 had non-union of type B and were treated using bone-transport. Tibial union was achieved in all the cases. The functional outcome has shown 4 good, 2 satisfactory, 4 moderate and 2 poor. Conclusion: The Ilizarov technique is an effective method in treating the aseptic tibial non-union.
