Intramedullary nailing of the tibia was performed on 145 tibiae (137 patients) for fracture or nonunion from 1985 to 1992. There were 133 cases available for radiographic analysis of postoperative tibial alignment. Of the 133 nailings, 16 (12%) were malaligned (12 acute fractures and 4 nonunion-malunions). Malalignment was defined as 5 degrees angulatory deformity in any plane. Malalignment was seen in 58% of proximal third fractures, 7% of middle third fractures, and 8% of distal third… CONTINUE READING
