Figure 5: (a) Hypertrophic nonunion. (b) Shortening of limb. (c) Bifocal osteosynthesis with Ilizarov, accordion maneuver done with distraction first (green arrow) for nonunion and corticotomy done for lengthening (red arrow). (d) Regenerate between corticotomy ends (red arrow) while waiting for consolidation and nonunion site (green arrow) during final compression after two cycles of accordion maneuver. (e) Final x-ray showing union (green arrow) and consolidated regenerate (red arrow)
