Figure 4: (a) Type A infected nonunion (Rosen classification) following Type 3 Gustillo–Anderson open-communicated segmental fracture femur treated with debridement and IMIL nail (associated ipsilateral- communited tibia fracture treated with IMIL nail healed uneventfully). Debridement, removal of implant, and Ilizarov frame application followed by corticotomy at proximal metaphysis after subsidence of local infection was done. (b) Regenerate forming after lengthening was started. (c) Adequate regenerate formed (5 cm) and union at distal corticotomy site seen. (d) Final X-ray after frame removal at 9 months postoperative. (e) Postframe removal satisfactory function regained
