a while ago my dad had a serious motorbike accident in which he nearly died. in fact he definitly would have done if it wasnt for a passer by quickly appling a tornakay to his leg. 
when they re-constructed the leg it was left much shorter then the other. The Ilizarov Technique was used over a period of a year to legenthen the leg. every day he would go up by 1mm untill at the end of the year he leg had increased by 10cm.
i recently found the photographs that were taken at the time.
