Tibial pilon fractures usually result from high energy trauma and present as a challenge to the orthopedic surgeon. Accurate reduction of the joint with meticulous care for the surrounding soft tissues is mandatory. We present a case report in which an anterior cruciate ligament targeting device is used with a minimally invasive technique under arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance for Orthopaedic Trauma Association 43-B2.3 type pilon fracture treatment.
