Background. The metal element of an external stabilizer cause changes in the electrical potential of tissue. During limb lengthening, large differences in potential are generated between the apparatus and the limb. According to some authorities this phenomenon may have a negative impact on the rebuilding of bone.
Material and methods. In 10 children undergoing limb lengthening by Ilizarov distractor, we applied an original device to eliminate undesirable electrical potentials produced by the introduction of metal distractor implants to tissues.
Results and Conclusions. It was found that the prototype “eliminator” effectively maintains the level of electrical charge within physiological limits.
