The effects of the interosseous membrane and partial fibulectomy on loading of the tibia: a biomechanical study.

Abstract

The biomechanical basis for the treatment of delayed union of tibial fractures by partial fibulectomy has yet to be fully evaluated. To gain further insight into this problem, nine intact cadaveric lower extremities were instrumented with strain gauges on the surfaces of the tibia and fibula. The limbs were then subjected to axial loading with the ankle and… (More)
