  • deformity
  • Once the fixator is attached to the bone, the deformity is characterised by studying the postoperative x-rays, or CT scans. (wikipedia.org)
  • For simpler fractures where no deformity is present the struts may still be adjusted post-surgery to achieve better bone alignment, but the correction takes less time. (wikipedia.org)
