Mahammadarif Khatri


Abstract: The management of distal Tibia fractures has been a great challenge to orthopaedic surgeons due to soft tissue damage, extensive comminution, intra-articular extension and lack of vascularity. Fifty adult patients treated by anterolateral 3.5mm distal Tibial LCP by MIPPO technique between December 2014 and July 2017 were included in the study.
