Author(s): Dr. Naitik Panchal and Dr. Neil Rohra
Abstract: Aims and Objectives: To Study the outcome of distal tibia fracture fixation with locking plate and compare it with other methods of fixation and assess time taken for radiological union and functional outcome.
Methods: 25 patients admitted between June 2016 to August 2018, aged between 27 to 66 years with distal tibia fractures including both extraarticular and intraarticular type were studied prospectively.
Results: Of the total 25 patients, 21(84%) patients had excellent to good recovery of plantar flexion and dorsi flexion movements, 3(12%) patients had fair recovery of movents and 1(4%) patient had poor recovery of movements.
Conclusions: With good articular reduction along with correction of length and rotation with Stable fixation and good postoperative rehabilitation, Good to Excellent results can be achieved.
