We have analysed the initial displacement and the retention of position after reduction of 192 spiral fractures of the tibial shaft. In fractures with an initial lateral displacement of one half the width of the shaft or more, successful retention of position after the primary closed reduction was achieved in only 18%. The direction of displacement between the tibial fragments showed little variation; the proximal fragment was always medial and anterior to the distal. This resulted in an… CONTINUE READING
