    Title Reconstruction of Distal Tibia Fractures Using a Posterolateral Approach and a Blade Plate.
    Date October 2006
    Journal Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article is to report a technique for the management of distal tibia fractures with significant anteromedial soft-tissue injury. The patients were initially treated with a spanning external fixator, open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of the fibula at the discretion of the surgeon, and soft-tissue management or flap coverage. ORIF of the tibia was performed on a staged basis, using a 90-degree cannulated blade plate and autogenous iliac crest bone graft through a posterolateral approach. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of a consecutive series of patients. SETTING: Two academic level-1 trauma centers. PATIENTS: Fifteen patients with 15 distal tibia fractures (13 open fractures), Orthopedic Trauma Association (OTA) type 43A3 and 43C1, were definitively treated and followed to union between July 2000 and July 2004. Five patients were referred from outside sources after initial stabilization. INTERVENTION: Initial stabilization in an external fixator and management of the open fracture and soft tissue. Staged ORIF of the tibia with bone graft was performed through a posterolateral approach when the soft tissues allowed. OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS: Radiographic union, American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) ankle-hindfoot score, and complications. RESULTS: All 15 fractures were followed to union. Average time to union was 20 (12 to 47) weeks from the time of fixation with blade plate and bone grafting. (AOFAS) ankle-hindfoot score was used to measure outcome. The average score was 81 (60 to 97) out of a possible 100. There were no deep infections. There was one nonunion; the fracture united after revision with a locked plate and bone graft. The average length of follow-up was 14 months (4 to 37). CONCLUSIONS: The staged treatment of high-energy distal tibia fractures with soft-tissue injury can lead to good outcomes and consistent bone union. Our results were obtained by the combination of the posterolateral approach, careful soft-tissue management, and stable internal fixation.
