BACKGROUND In traumatology, the search for better surgical access points has led to the increased use of the minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) technique. There are few studies on the treatment of distal fibular fractures with MIPO. Locking compression plates (LCP) for distal fibular fractures is generally applied after open reduction, but may… CONTINUE READING
