External fixation at the Vreden Russian research institute of traumatology and orthopedics

Research output

Abstract

The Vreden Russian Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics, formerly known as the Leningrad Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics, (LITO), has a long history in the development of external fixation methods. The Russian Ilizarov Scientific Center “Restorative Traumatology and Orthopedics” (RISC “RTO”) was a branch of the LITO until 1971. In 1972, thematic courses in external fixation training were organized by the RISC “RTO” on the basis of those previously held by the LITO. Thus, the Institute pioneered the development of external fixation in the former USSR.
