With regard to the consequences of congenital deformities in the adult such as club foot, equine foot, or congenital cavo-varus foot. Is morphological and functional reintegration possible?

The Ilizarov apparatus, made up of 25 components, poses various assembly options, like a child’s erector set.

Assembly of the apparatus for a case of club foot in the adult is fashioned in such a way that the combined action of distraction and compression forces that are appropriately directed to the diseased part, will correct the deformities of each individual bone in order to achieve normal morphology over time.
