Abstract

Background:

Distal tibia fracture accounts for around 6-11% of tibia fractures. A distal tibia fracture is also known as a Pilon fracture. A distal tibia fracture is not easy to handle. The prime motive of this research is to examine the result of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis for distal tibia fractures.

Materials and Methods: 

This is retrospective research and was carried out in Pt JLN govt medical college, Chamba. 107 patients were included in this research. All the detailed history of the patients was recorded. Complete lesion detersion is first done. Advance soft tissue covering is performed if needed. Plates are arranged on the lateral side of the tibia. If it is required, extra cortical screw utilizing minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis.

Results:

70 patients were male and 37 patients were female. The majority of the patients were in the age range of 30-40 years. 13 patients were in the age range of 20-30 years. 45 patients were in the age range of 30-40 years. 40 patients were in the age group of 40-50 years. 9 patients were in the age range of 50-60 years.

Conclusion:

According to the present study minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis method does not affect blood circulation and therefore leads to low intervention with the hematoma and trauma recovery. The unification of the bone is also quick in minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis. The time required for the minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis method is very little and no special instruments are needed for this procedure.

Recommendation:

Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis is a safe and useful method for the treatment of distal tibia fracture. It has great results with the early union of bone and mobility of the leg. The procedure is also less complicated and provides sufficient blood supply to the periosteum.
