Distal Tibial Fracture

Distal tibial fracture (fracture in the distal articular surface of the proximal tibia within 5cm) incidence is relatively low, only a small portion of all lower limb fractures. When the fracture involves the articular surface of the tibia, also known as time-distance Pilon fracture, or tibial dome (plafond) fractures. About 75% of Pilon fracture combined with fibula fracture. It is often caused by a high-energy injure or multiple injuries, which is hard to deal with, often combined with soft tissue necrosis, infection, nonunion, and traumatic arthritis and other complications.
