Pin Leverage Technique: A Simple Percutaneous Technique for Elevation of Posterolateral Tibial Plateau Fractures.

Indian J Orthop 2021 Jul 11;55(Suppl 2):473-480. Epub 2021 Apr 11.

Division of Orthopaedics, Trauma and Spine Surgery, Ganga Hospital, 313 Mettupalayam Road, Coimbatore, 641043 India.

Depressed lateral tibial plateau fractures with a large central or posterior fragment can be seen in isolation or association with complex proximal tibia fractures. Conventionally elevation of the large depressed fragment is done by bone tamp through a medial metaphyseal window in isolated fractures, or the fractured window in associated complex fracture scenarios. Though various instruments have been devised for this purpose, reaching the posterior aspect of lateral condyle through the medial metaphyseal window is not always easy, considering the difficulty in aiming and trajectory.

Posterolateral Plating of Distal Tibia Fractures: Extending the Use of a Familiar Approach.

Indian J Orthop 2021 Jul 16;55(Suppl 2):426-435. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, 1 Jurong East Street 21, Singapore, 609606 Singapore.

Background: Distal tibia fractures present challenges in surgical management and when nailing is not an option, plate osteosynthesis is performed. This is usually done with a minimally invasive approach to reduce the risk of wound complications in an already fragile soft-tissue envelope. We propose that a posterolateral open approach can lead to stable fixation construct and comes with advantages of approaching fibula fractures via same approach and has a thicker soft tissue envelope over the fixation.

The use of 'blocking' screws for the 'closed' reduction of difficult proximal and distal femoral fractures.

EFORT Open Rev 2021 Jun 28;6(6):451-458. Epub 2021 Jun 28.

Orthopaedic and Trauma Department, 'Evangelismos' General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Most meta-diaphyseal femoral fractures that are treated with intramedullary nailing can be reduced satisfactorily by skeletal traction without 'opening' the fracture site and therefore, complications such as nonunion, infection and wound healing problems are reduced.In cases where adequate fracture reduction cannot be achieved by skeletal traction, 'reduction aids' have been used during the operative procedure in order to avoid the exposure of the fracture site.The 'blocking' screw, as a reduction tool, was proposed initially for the 'difficult' metaphyseal fractures of the tibia.
