      Tissue regeneration obtained by using a limb lengthening apparatus has been used by the authors in five cases for the repair of traumatic loss of bone and soft tissue from the lower limbs.
      The principles of “regenerated tissue” introduced by llizarov for the lengthening of limbs were modified and applied to traumatological needs. Very encouraging results have been obtained.
