Intramedullary osteosynthesis of A1 type tibial fractures

Cite item


Authors analyzed results of osteosynthesis by locking and not-locking nails in treatment of 64 patients with diaphyseal extra-isthmal A1 type tibial fractures. Patients were divided into two clinical groups. The first group consisted of 20 patients with juxta-isthmal fractures, the second - 44 patients with juxta-metaphyseal fractures. The obtained data show that the use of locking nails and rectangular section nails produced good results at juxta-isthmal fractures. In cases of juxta-metaphyseal fracture the use of rectangular section nails was associated with a greater risk of complications compared to locking nails.
