A randomised prospective and retrospective study of biological plating for tibial fractures
A series of 30 patients of proximal and distal tibial fractures treated with minimally invasive techniques have been reviewed after surgery to study the results of fractures of proximal and distal tibia with biological plating. We have scored proximal tibial fractures according to Rasmussen scale and distal tibial fractures by Tenny and Wiss scale. Out of 30 patients, 4 had excellent, 15 had good, 7 patient had fair, and 3 had poor results. Two patients had superficial wound infection and two patients had deep infections. This minimally invasive technique for treatment of distal tibial fractures proves to be a feasible and worthwhile method of stabilization while avoiding the severe complications associated with the more standard methods of internal or external fixation of these fractures.
