Figure 7: (a) Shortening and external rotation deformity of the left lower limb - 16 weeks old injury. (b) X-ray showing communited subtrochantric fracture with overriding and maluniting fracture. (c) Ilizarov frame applied - distal corticotomy done to carry out derotation and lengthening. (d) Frame removed after 7 months; X-ray shows solid regenerate and 5 cm length gain. (e) Clinical correction of deformity achieved
