Surgical management is often complicated by the initial soft tissue damage, malalignment, remaining instability, or infection. In this prospective cohort study, we describe the diagnostic procedures vital for preoperative planning. These include plain radiographs and CT scans in case of articular fracture… CONTINUE READING
