Intraosseous Osteosynthesis with Pin Distractor in Closed Diaphyseal Fractures of the Tibia

Abstract


The model of pin distractor (pat. 75299 RF) that enables to perform intraoperative 3D correc-tion of fragments' displacement has been proposed. Twenty patients with closed fractures of the shin bones have been operated using this device and treatment results have been analyzed. In 4 patients slight (up to 3°) angular displacements have been noted. In 1 patient 0.5 cm shortening of the shin has been present as a result of the previous fracture. Treatment results have been considered as good in all cases.
