This study evaluated the outcomes of distal tibia metaphyseal fractures (DTMFs) managed surgically and compared the outcomes of patients with and without associated fibula fracture fixation. Thirty-two consecutive patients (14 males; mean age at the time of injury: 7.8 years) with closed displaced DTMFs, with (22 patients; group A) or without associated fibula fractures fixation (10 patients; group B), were included.
