What is iskd
What is ISKD?

  • Intramedullary Skeletal Kinetic Distractor

  • A rod inserted into the bone to gradually lengthen the bone.

  • It is designed to lengthen a predetermined distance.

  • Can lengthen as far as 8 cm.


Lengthening process
Lengthening Process

  • The lengthening is triggered by movement of the limb.

  • Rotation of 3-9 degrees and minor weight bearing causes expansion.

  • The distal end of the rod telescopes outward.

  • A internal threaded rod spins causing the extension.


Benefits
Benefits

  • Completely internal and non-visible.

    • No risk on infection

    • Minimal scaring

    • No social stress

  • Much less painful then tradition lengthening methods.

  • Hand-held monitor allows patient to follow lengthening process daily.


Progress monitoring
Progress Monitoring

  • A hand-held console is given to the patient.

  • A magnetic sensor allows the patient track there progress.

  • Can be attached to a printer to print the data or sent to a PC with the ISKD program.
