The Ilizarow’s stabilizer is characterized by large functionality which enables performance of lengthening, compression, rotational and angular correction and also stabilization of joints. Between the years 1989 and 1998 at Orthopedic Department of Warsaw Medical University Ilizarow’s device was used in the treatment of 410 patients during which 484 surgical procedures were performed. The most common among operations were elongations of limbs and treatment of pseudoarthroses. Authors present their own remarks and experience from over ten years using Ilizarow’s method.
