In addition, the donor sites are always a source of discomfort and morbidity for the patients. Intercalary defects resulting from trauma, infection or tumour can be treated with transport of a segment of bone within the limb using the Ilizarov technique. We report on three cases of local bone transportation for intercalary tibial defects by the Ilizarov method.....
