Abstract: In 1950, Ilizarov moved to Kurgan. In Kurgan, Ilizarov continued to explore ways to achieve improved results in bone healing and immobilization of fractures. While he was studying Mechanics he had an insight into the stability that an external ring with crossed wires would bring to a fracture setting. He then asked a local metal worker to fashion these specially designed parts for a new orthopaedic device, and as before did his preliminary testing on a broken broom stick. This time Ilizarov became convinced that his invention would provide secure immobilization. He sent an application for a certificate of invention and was invited to Moscow to demonstrate his external fixator.
