Hypertrophic nonunions of the distal, dia-/metaphyseal tibial shaft are still considered to be a problematic challenge. The use of a locking plate system (LCP) as an alternative treatment option was evaluated in these nonunions. This retrospective, nonrandomized study included four male patients (mean age 52.5 years) with hypertrophic nonunions of the distal dia-/metaphyseal tibial shaft treated with a locking compression plate (LCP) by percutaneous technique. The following parameters were… CONTINUE READING
