A prospective study on usefulness of ankle spanning uniaxial external fixator in inta articular fractures of distal tibia

Nagarajan, G., Kanthimathi, B., Santhoshkumar, R and Manikandarajan, A

Intra articular fractures of distal tibia often benefit from uniaxial ankle spanning external fixation, both as a permanent measure and temporary measure prior to definitive fixation. Uniplanar ankle spanning external fixator placement is a safe and reliable technique for achieving fracture reduction and stability while awaiting definitive fixation. It is an versatile tool in achieving fracture union as permanent procedure.
