Amputation vs reconstruction in case of catastrophic lower limb
Decision-making becomes more difficult when the patient is within the definition of a polytraumatized one and therefore in a context in which the general situation can influence on local injuries and vice versa by the overload that a limb in such conditions may mean on the instability of the patient and therefore with the interference in the resuscitation manoeuvres.
Le fratture complesse del piatto tibiale: tecniche di fissazione esterna
It is believed that hybrid external fixators are the most appropriate kind of external fixation for type V and VI Schatzker fractures, because they allow for good manoeuvrability during fracture reduction, any subsequent changes of the fixator configuration, early loading and faster functional recovery.
S3-Leitlinie Polytrauma/Schwerverletzten-Behandlung
The S3 guideline on polytrauma does not claim to be complete, but important subjects such as the medical care of children have not yet been integrated into the guideline, but it is planned to include them in the next revision.

The results of immediate soft tissue coverage following open tibia fractures are encouraging, however this method is not yet adequately proven to be safe by randomised controlled trials, and hence cannot be encouraged routinely.
Locally developed external fixators as definitive treatment of open tibia diaphyseal fractures: a clinical prospective study conducted in Ivory Coast
LDEF improved significantly the OTDF management, as it provided better stability and superior fracture healing rates than what is observed with the standard of care in the same environment.
Managing bone loss in open fractures
This article will answer relevant questions and discuss common obstacles and challenges encountered with segmental bone loss, and review the many treatment options available or in development to address this problem.
Patterns of open tibia fractures and outcomes of intramedullary fixation using surgical implant generation network nail at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital
The infection rate following SIGN nail fixation was low and the union rate was high, and the SIGN nail is safe and effective for use in grade I to grade IIIA open tibial fractures at MTRH.
An orthoplastic approach to bone infection after trauma
Avoiding the development of deep bone infection following open long bone fractures remains the aim when managing such injuries. Standards of care have been developed in the UK, and adopted by others,
