External locking fixation device for extra-articular fractures

A locking fixation device for treating extra-articular fractures includes a connector assembly connected to two end plates. Rotation of the connector assembly about an axis extending therethrough converts rotational motion to linear motion, and advances the end plates in a linear direction away from (lengthening) or toward (compression) each other.
