INTRODUCTION: Exchange nailing is most acceptable for treating hypertrophic non-union of the long bones, requiring the removal of previously fixed implant. However, its main effect of mechanical stabilization is controversial in non-isthmal area. We hypothesized that minimally invasive plate augmentation over the non-union site may have a better option, without the need of bone grafting or removing pre-existing implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventeen patients with hypertrophic non-union of the long bones between 2010 and 2014 on radiography who previously underwent intramedullary (IM) nailing or plate osteosynthesis for long-bone fractures were included...

INTRODUCTION: In the treatment of Gustilo Type 3B open tibial fractures, it is important to perform soft tissue reconstruction and bone reconstruction simultaneously. Gastrocnemius muscle and soleus muscle flaps are generally used as rotational flaps for the tibia. The distal third of the tibia can often not be covered with the gastrocnemius muscle and soleus muscle flaps. Treatment distal to the distal third of the tibia is difficult because fewer flap options are available. In the present report, we describe our experience with a Gustilo Type 3B open tibial fracture treated by gastrocnemius muscle and soleus muscle flaps, along with an additional proximally based flexor hallucis longus flap, which is a rare procedure...

INTRODUCTION: Segmental tibial fractures are complex injuries with a prolonged recovery time. Current definitive treatment options include intramedullary fixation or a circular external fixator. However, there is uncertainty as to which surgical option is preferable and there are no sufficiently rigorous multi-centre trials that have answered this question. The objective of this study was to determine whether patient and surgeon opinion was permissive for a randomised controlled trial (RCT) comparing intramedullary nailing to the application of a circular external fixator...

BACKGROUND: The optimal fixation strategy for unstable pediatric tibia fractures is unclear with some favoring elastic intramedullary nails (EIN) and others favoring plate and screws [open reduction internal fixation (ORIF)]. The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes and complications of skeletally immature patients undergoing surgical stabilization of the tibia with either EIN or ORIF. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on all patients undergoing EIN or ORIF of a diaphyseal fracture at a single pediatric level I trauma center between 2010 and 2016...

OBJECTIVES: We hypothesize that the anatomic center of the distal tibia is just lateral and anterior to the center of the distal tibia articular surface in the coronal and sagittal planes respectively, and that placement of the nail along this axis results in improved rates of malalignment when treating distal tibia fractures. DESIGN: Retrospective study SETTING:: One level I and one level II trauma center PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS:: 203 distal tibia fractures treated with IMN (primary cohort) whose main fracture line extended within 5 cm of the plafond to evaluate the rate of malalignment with distal nail placement...

BACKGROUND: There has been a trend towards flexible intramedullary nailing for unstable tibial shaft fractures in the pediatric population, traditionally, utilizing a 2-incision technique with passage of one nail medially and one nail laterally. Our study aims to compare a single incision approach for flexible nailing of unstable tibial shaft fractures in pediatric patients to the traditional 2-incision approach. METHODS: Patients were selected for operative fixation if they had a length unstable tibial shaft fracture confirmed by fluoroscopy...

BACKGROUND: Flexible elastic nails, submuscular plating, and rigid locked intramedullary nails are common methods of fixation for pediatric femur fractures (PFF) in which the fracture table is used to aid reduction. Little is known about complications associated with fracture table application in PFF. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and risk factors associated with adverse outcomes related to fracture table application for the treatment of PFF. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all children (younger than 18 y) treated for a femur fracture with the use of the fracture table between 2004 and 2015 at a single tertiary pediatric hospital was performed...

The suprapatellar approach for intramedullary tibial nailing has become widely accepted over the past decade. A round sleeve is passed beneath the patella to protect the surface of the patellofemoral joint (PFJ). However, the round sleeve cannot be easily stabilized in the PFJ because it does not conform to the shape of the patellar apex. Consequently, we produced a heart-shaped sleeve to simplify the insertion of the entry sleeve during the suprapatellar approach. Using the new sleeve, the following procedure is used: (1) make a longitudinal 4 cm skin incision proximal to the patella to reach the PFJ, (2) insert the guide pin manually to the ventral edge of the tibial plateau, (3) insert the cannulated trocar along the guide pin, (4) insert the heart-shaped sleeve along the cannulated trocar, (5) remove the cannulated trocar, (6) ream the entry point through the heart-shaped sleeve...

The tibia is the most commonly fractured long bone. Tibia fractures are simple, and most are amenable to immediate closed reduction. Reported cases of irreducibility resulting from entrapment of soft-tissue structures are rare. We report the case of a 23-year-old man who, in a high-speed motor vehicle crash, sustained a closed lower leg fracture that was later found to have a unique pattern in which the fibula was entrapped in the medullary cavity of the tibia. Limited open reduction was performed, and the entrapped distal fibula was removed with use of a bone hook...

PURPOSE: To measure the intracompartmental pressures surrounding tibial fractures not exhibiting any clinical evidence of compartment syndrome. Our hypothesis was that pressures often exceed the recommended threshold of fasciotomy despite the absence of compartment syndrome, and hence diagnosis based on pressure measurements alone is unreliable. METHODS: Thirteen consecutive patients with closed tibial shaft fractures without clinical suspicion of compartment syndrome, and who were planned for intramedullary nailing, were prospectively enrolled...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate damage control plating (DCP) as an alternative to external fixation (EF) in the provisional stabilization of open tibial shaft fractures. Through retrospective analysis, the study found 445 patients who underwent operative fixation for tibial shaft fractures from 2008 to 2012. Twenty patients received DCP or EF before intramedullary nailing with a minimum follow-up of 3 months. Charts and radiographs were reviewed for postoperative complications. Hospital charges were reviewed for implant costs...

BACKGROUND: This randomized, parallel-group, non-blinded study was designed to determine the role of fibular fixation in the treatment outcomes of combined distal tibia and fibula fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty patients with distal tibial and fibular fractures were randomly divided in two groups of case and controls. In the case group, fibula was fixed prior to the fixation of tibia. In the control group, tibia was fixed without fibular fixation. Primary outcomes were varus-valgus angulation, anterior-posterior angulation, union and side effects...

BACKGROUND: Anterior knee pain is the most common complaint after intramedullary nail of the tibia. The incidence of anterior knee pain ranges from 10-86% and the exact ethology is unclear. Transpatellar tendon approach is commonly used for tibial intramedullary interlocking nailing but it can also be done through medial parapatellar tendon approach. The objective of the study was to compare post-operative anterior knee pain after intramedullary nailing technique by transpatellar approach compared to medial parapatellar approach...

Removal of orthopedic implants may sometimes be difficult because of ongrowth of new bone. Titanium screws can become encased or stripped during the process of initial open reduction and internal fixation or at the time of hardware removal. Difficulty in removing screws from a locking plate is particularly well-known. Two patients with tibial and femoral diaphyseal fractures were treated using a locking plate or an intramedullary nail. However, after fracture healing, it was difficult to remove the locking screw or reconstruction screws because of damage to the heads...

INTRODUCTION: The anatomy of the distal tibia accounts for reduced biomechanical stability and higher complication rates when treating distal tibiofibular fractures with an intramedullary tibia nail (IMTN). The goal of this study was to identify variables that affect the stability of IMTN. We assessed the value of additional fibular fixation, angular stable interlocking screws (ASLS) and multiplanar screw configuration in IMTN. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed including 184 distal tibial fractures and associated fibula fracture treated with IMTN...

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a surgical procedure which is widely used in the treatment of gonarthrosis secondary to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The incidence of stress fractures in tibia in the patients with RA is higher compared to normal patients. In this study, we report two cases of TKA and intramedullary nailing in RA patients with severe knee arthritis and tibial nonunion. Both patients had a satisfactory clinical outcome with radiological healing of the tibial fracture.
