Tibial impression deformities for malleolar fractures

Федоров В.Г.


The study deals with the analysis of treatment results in 360 patients with malleolar fractures. Conservative treatment was performed in 81 cases, surgical one – in 279 cases. Bone grafting was not used in the study. Long-term results were studied in 199 cases. In the immediate rehabilitation period the loss of reposition correction caused by impression changes was observed in 36.8% cases of pronation fractures. Valgus deformity of limb axis developed as a result. The results of the study emphasize the necessity of bone grafting use for treatment of such fractures.
