About this book


Comprised exclusively of nearly two dozen clinical cases covering fractures of the tibia, this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic surgeons with the best real-world strategies to properly manage injuries to the tibial shaft, plateau and pilon, as well as deformities, nonunions and bone loss. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls. Cases included illustrate different management strategies for Schatzker (I-VI) tibial plateau fractures, plates and screws for proximal tibia fracture, intramedullary nailing for midshaft and distal tibial fracture, and the use of Ex-Fix with open tibia and distal pilon fracture, in addition to Masquelet bone grafting and modified clamshell osteotomy for acute shaft fracture. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Fracture of the Tibia: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons confronted with various injuries to the shin.
