Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Skeletal deformity correction is a procedure of high aesthetic and functional demand. Therefore, meticulous surgical planning has always been mandatory. However, it is known that during the surgery things may often get slippery, leaving the surgeon no chance but improvisation. Because of this shortcoming it is not a rare occasion to find unhappy patients that have undergone deformity correction surgery.
