., .

Abstract


The authors describe a technique of intramedullary osteosynthesis with a wire distractor based on the Ilizarov fixator for treatment of proximal tibial fractures in 53 patients. The original osteosynthesis technique is presented, as well as its high effectiveness is demonstrated in treatment of high tibial fractures.
