Abstract

Implantable intramedullary nail lengthening devices (e.g., PRECICE 2 system) have been proposed as alternative method to external fixation for lower limb lengthening surgery. The aim of this study was to analyse our outcomes and complications using the PRECICE 2 (P2) nail system and review them in light of the existing literature. A retrospective multicentre study was conducted on patients
