: Difficult problems that are faced when reconstructing severe pilon fractures include filling metaphyseal defects and supporting an impacted, multifragmented articular surface. Supplements to plate fixation currently available in a surgeon's armamentarium include cancellous bone autograft, structural bone allograft, demineralized bone matrix, and calcium-based cements. Cancellous autograft possesses limited inherent mechanical stability and is associated with graft site morbidity. Structural allografts incorporate inconsistently and are plagued by late resorption...

OBJECTIVES: In today's climate of cost containment and fiscal responsibility, generic implant alternatives represent an interesting area of untapped resources. As patents have expired on many commonly used trauma implants, generic alternatives have recently become available from a variety of sources. The purpose of this study was to examine the clinical and economic impact of a cost containment program using high quality, generic orthopaedic locking plates. The implants available for study were anatomically precontoured plates for the clavicle, proximal humerus, distal radius, proximal tibia, distal tibia, and distal fibula...

DESIGN:  A concealed, randomized, blinded, sham controlled clinical trial with a parallel group design of 501 patients, enrolled between October 2008 and September 2012, and followed for one year.

PURPOSE: Tibial pilon fractures remain challenging for an orthopaedic surgeon to repair. External fixation (ExFix) and open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) are two widely used methods for repairing tibial pilon fractures. However, conclusions of comparative studies regarding which method is superior are controversial. Our aim is to compare ORIF and ExFix and clarify which method is better in terms of reduction and union results and major complications. METHODS: A computerized research of MEDLINE, EMBASE, Springer, and Cochrane Library (before December 2014) for studies of any design comparing ORIF and ExFix was conducted...

BACKGROUND: The Military Orthopaedic Trauma Registry (MOTR) was designed to replicate the Department of Defense Trauma Registry's (DoDTR's) role as pillar for data-driven management of extremity war wounds. The MOTR continuously undergoes quality assurance checks to optimize the registry data for future quality improvement efforts. We conducted a quality assurance survey of MOTR entrants to determine if a simple MOTR data pull could provide robust orthopedic-specific information toward the question of causes for late amputation...

The role of fibular fixation in patients with distal tibia fractures is controversial. Although the stability of the fibula is critical in patients with syndesmotic instability or highly comminuted pilon fractures, fibular fixation in extraarticular distal tibia fractures or elementary intraarticular distal tibia fractures is more controversial. Biomechanical studies, as performed in sawbones or cadaveric models, denote advantages to fibular fixation with respect to specific uniplanar motion. However, the increased stability is susceptible to the fracture pattern of the tibia, fixation strategy for the tibia, fixation strategy for the fibula, and loading pattern of the entire construct...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether multiple approaches pose an increased risk to fracture healing when compared to a standard single approach in the treatment of pilon (OTA 43C) fractures. DESIGN: Retrospective review of a prospective database. SETTING: Level I academic trauma center and level II community trauma center. METHODS: From January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2011, all records of patients treated for OTA 43C fractures of the distal tibia were reviewed...

: The aim of this study was to review the outcome of the treatment of finger proximal interphalangeal joint dorsal fracture subluxations and pilon fractures with a modified external fixator. We treated 36 patients (36 fingers). We assessed the ranges of motion and patient satisfaction. At final follow-up, 23 patients had no pain; 11 had pain in the cold; and two also had mild pain. None had moderate or severe pain. The mean range of proximal interphalangeal joint motion was 86° (60°-100°)...

BACKGROUND: The results and immediate consequences of intraoperative three-dimensional (3D) imaging in the treatment of AO classification type C fractures of the distal radius, the tibial head and the tibial pilon were analyzed and compared with published results on general intraoperative revision rates following intraoperative 3D-imaging. METHODS: In this retrospective study 279 patients with AO type C fractures of the distal radius (n = 84), tibial head (n = 109) and tibial pilon (n = 86) who underwent intraoperative 3D-imaging were included...

OBJECTIVE: To explore clinical results of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) for posterior Pilon fracture through posterolateral approach. METHODS: Seventeen patients with posterior Pilon fracture were treated through posterolateral approach from February 2010 to April 2013. Among them,including 11 males and 6 females aged from 29 to 59 with an average of 43.4 years old. All fractures were associated with more than 20% of articular surface of distal tibial...

BACKGROUND: Posterior pilon variant fracture is a recently described posterior malleolus fracture characterized by the involvement of both posterolateral and posteromedial malleolar fragment. The associated surgical approach remains controversial. The aim of this study was to present the application of modified posteromedial approach in the treatment for posterior pilon variant fracture. METHODS: Sixteen patients were identified with posterior pilon variant fractures...

BACKGROUND: Temporary external fixators are often used to stabilize fractures when definitive fracture surgery must be delayed. Sometimes, external fixators are left in place during repeat operations, including definitive internal fixation of tibial pilon and tibial plateau fractures. It is unknown how well current surgical preparation sterilizes these devices, which become part of the surgical field. Our hypothesis was that our institution's standard surgical preparation creates a low rate of culture-positive environments on external fixators at the time of surgical skin incision...

This video reviews the indications, surgical approach, and case examples of the anterolateral approach to a distal tibial plafond fracture. If this approach is used in a staged fashion, when the soft envelope is ready, it affords excellent visualization for fracture fixation through thick skin flaps. An associated article reviews a cohort of 44 mainly type C3 pilon injuries treated by 2 orthopaedic traumatologist using the anterolateral approach after staged external fixation. An anatomic or good fracture reduction was obtained in 41 fractures with 13...

Patients with tibial pilon fractures have a higher incidence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis than those with fractures of the tibial plateau. This may indicate that pilon fractures present a greater mechanical insult to the joint than do plateau fractures. We tested the hypothesis that fracture energy and articular fracture edge length, two independent indicators of severity, are higher in pilon than plateau fractures. We also evaluated if clinical fracture classification systems accurately reflect severity...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to examine the screw trajectory of ten commercially available distal tibia plates and compare them to common fracture patterns seen in OTA C type pilon fractures to determine their ability to stabilize the three most common fracture fragments while buttressing anterolateral zones of comminution. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that a single plate for the distal tibia would fail to adequately stabilize all three main fracture fragments and zones of comminution in complex pilon fractures...

The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence of tendon entrapments and tendon dislocations associated with ankle and hindfoot fractures in patients studied by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). Additionally, we describe particular tendon injuries associated with specific fractures. This was a retrospective review of all individuals with a trauma-protocol CT for suspected ankle and/or hindfoot fractures during a consecutive 41-month time period at a single Level I Trauma Center. Each patient's images were evaluated by two radiologists and an orthopedic surgeon for tendon entrapment, tendon dislocation, and bone(s) fractured or dislocated...
