Limb Lengthening and Deformity Correction using Salamehfix Small external arc fixation System Salamehfix ;

A New Hinge of External Distraction  fixation System in the treatment of limb lengthening and correction of axial

devlations and Deformities  (SALAMEHFIX)  ,  (SLDF System).

This is a New Hinged Three Dimention external fixation system which modified by Prof. Dr. Ghassan Salameh MD. Ph. D.

/Salamehfix 1 /=It,s a hinged Three Dimention  External Fixation System provides simultaneus smooth lengthening and correction of axial deviations with keeping perfect alignment during lengthening  .  It is an arc system rather than a circular system and consists of three small arcs. The arcs are not the same diameter so the system can take the shape of leg. The entrance of screws and wires are in minimally painful regions and direct to bone so no muscle irritation so that it,s more tolerable, provides more stable fixation and allows early full weight bearing. provides simultsneus proximal and distal tibia and fibula fixation ,The small size of the system allows clothing to be worn over it with full mobility of nearby joints.
This new hinges had WIPO registration.

New Modification of salamehfix 1 more smaler size and more comfortible especially for Cosmetic limb Lengthening;

This New hinges are already published and presented in many international Conferences and had a perfect discussion and impression; you can see details on the page of about us and activities.

Indications of the External Hinges (SLDF System):

  • limb lengthening
  • correction of axial deviations
  • Treatment of congenital and acquired deformities
  • treatment of fractures
  • Treatment of pseudarthrosis
  • Osteomylites management

Advantages of SLDF System
1- The system is more suitable in size and shape because of deferent sizes of the arcs
2- Easy to correct angle deviations by use of special hinged devices


Lengthening and restoring of alignment


Small size fixation, good alignment on X-rays , possibility to wake after operation and easy wearing clothes


Possibility to minimize the hinges after good callus formation

23 years achondroplastic patient with severe varus deformity of both legsHeavy patent ,his weight is 110 kg

Lengthening 16cm and correction of severe varus( Bowing ) deformity with full weight bearing

Lengthening 16 cm with correction of of sever bowing varus deformity and full weight bearing .



 Comfortable sitting few days after surgery here is just 3ed day, a girl after cosmetic Limb Lengthening , its a Nice dream In Frankfurt , Germany.

New technology with lengthening we started to use two days ago in Frankfurt , Germany we used Internal Precise Stryde Nail for femur lengthening using Magnet Power to lengthen the femur , using External Remote Controller ERC for bone Distraction .Patient was so happy two days in the hospital then go home walking was first on walker , but he went home using crutches as only one femur was done. so that for femur lengthening Nail more easy but on Tibia i still prefer t use my System Salamehfix as it small size comfortable and allows full wight bearing , better for walking .


 Far of lengthening . Hear is the sun set on my home land Tartous , the place  where my previous international  lengthening patients at the opposit Sea Hotel they where living on this view , but now here is with my family and  my Niece came from USA to share me this view.

 This is a Recent View of my City Tartous on Medeatern Sea, My family with my brother"s daughters from US.
