In this paper, doctors want to draw attention to the possibilities of treatment of complicated fractures of limbs and pelvis. They present their own experiences with the treatment of these fractures by using various types of internal and external fixation. In this paper, engineers report about the new design, testing and numerical modelling of external and internal fixators invented at the VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava and at the Trauma Centre of The University Hospital in Ostrava and at the Pardubice Regional Hospital together with MEDIN a.s. company. These fixators are intended for the treatment of open, unstable, extraarticular or intraarticular and other types of complicated fractures in traumatology and orthopaedics for humans or animals limbs. The new design of external fixators is based on the development of Ilizarov and other techniques (i.e. shape and weight optimization based on composite materials, application of smart materials, nanotechnology, low x-ray absorption, antibacterial protection, patient's comfort, reduction in the duration of the surgical treatment, and cost). Similarly, the new intramedullary nail C-NAIL (i.e. an example of internal fixator) is intended for minimal-invasive fixation of intraarticular calcaneal fractures.
