Brazil Reconstruction and Bone Grafting ASAMI BRBG


There is at least three decades a worldwide trend in the formation of a subspecialty orthopedic doctor. However, it is important that it acquires basic concepts of various specialties so that your conduct be as safe as possible regarding the diagnosis and prompt treatment.

External fixation had its beginning in the year 1843 by the 1st publication by Malgaine in France.

The US Park Hill in 1892, and Belgian brothers Lambotte, in 1902, publishes its monoplanar fastener with greater indication in open fractures.

It was during the 2nd World War the external fixator had a big boost with the introduction in 1938 by R. Hoffmann, his monoplanar fixer, later perfected by Vidal, giving opportunity for many members were saved.

Since then, external fixation was becoming important tool in the treatment of fractures and some authors such as Anderson (1934), Charnley (1938) and Wagner (1972), they have broadened their statements, developing fasteners for bone lengthening, arthrodesis, etc.

In Brazil, we can not forget José Soares Hungary Filhe and John DMB Alvarenga Rossi, who in the 70's and 80 developed external fixation in our country, mainly in the treatment of bone infections and trauma.

While the western world from the late 60s, the group AO studied and introduced the rigid system: internal and synthesis, mainly through the compression plates with anatomical reductions and large surgeries, Eastern Europe more precisely in the Soviet Union, a Russian named Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov developed and introduced the opposite, with minimally invasive surgery, preserving the biological factor (soft tissue, periosteum and endosteum).

Ilizarov maintains stable mechanical factor by a circular external fixation more elastic attachment to the bone using Kirschner s wires of 1.5 mm diameter and 1.8 mm, showing that bone and tissue regenerate well on distraction. In the Western world, from 1981, the Ilizarov method was published by Italian ASAMI, with the reference center the city of Lecco, Roberto Cattaneo service.

Finally in 1987 we have in São Paulo, at the Hospital of the USP, the 1st course on the method taught by Bianchi and Angelo Maiocchi Villa.

On that occasion, it founded the Brazilian ASAMI. Brazilians kept getting better with internships in Italy and Russia, forming in our services several specific centers of teaching and training in the sector.

The Ilizarov method (lengthening, bone transport, deformity corrections, etc.) was being understood, developed and applied in other fixings such as uniplanar, used by De Bastiani, Orthofix system, the AO group, as well as worldwide especially Italy, the United States and Brazil where it developed a hybrid fixation, with greater effectiveness in the treatment of diseases and greater comfort for the patient.

In 1994, due to the importance of the method in Brazil and in the world, founded the ASAMI SBOT Committee - Reconstruction and Bone Grafting, reaching 486 members in 2001.

In these 20 years, Brazil was well represented nationally and internationally, for our colleagues and teachers in all activities of the sector, showing new techniques and concepts.
