From 1991 to 1996, four free vascularized fibular grafts (FVFG) and four callus distraction (CD) techniques were performed for post-traumatic tibial defects at the authors' institute. They attempted to discern any differences of results between FVFGs and CDs for post-traumatic tibial defects. The mean defect length of the FVFG and CD groups were 7.3 cm and 4.6 cm, respectively (p < 0.05). They selected as contributing factors: external fixation time, complication rate, hospital charge, union… CONTINUE READING
