INTRODUCTION Minimal invasive plate osteosynthesis in simple distal meta or diaphyseal tibia fractures can be applied using absolute (lag screw and neutralisation plate; LSN) or relative stability (bridge plate; BP). The primary aim of the study was to compare time to radiological union and time to full weight bearing in the two groups (LSN vs. BP… CONTINUE READING
