The mechanical role of supplemental fibula fixation in both bone lower leg fractures is not well defined. The benefit of fibula plate fixation in this context is controversial. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the mechanical contributions of the fibula under three conditions (intact, fractured, or plated fibula) following standard tibia locked plating.

A mechanical characterisation of lag screw fixation plus locking plate - although clinically widely used as either "mixed fixation concept" or absolutely stable fixation - is so far missing. This stud...
Congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia and fibula are rare conditions that share common treatment strategies. The purpose of this review is to provide an overview of the recent developments in treatm...
Intramedullary nailing (IMN) is generally accepted as the standard treatment for femoral shaft fractures. However, segmental femoral fractures are considered to be a special injury type associated wit...
Limited biomechanical data exist for dual small plate fixation of midshaft clavicle fractures, and no prior study has concurrently compared dual small plating to larger superior or anteroinferior sing...
Fractures of the distal femur remain challenging to treat, and numerous fixation methods are designed to promote stability and fracture healing. Locking plate constructs have recently become the mains...
The primary objective of this study will be to evaluate the functional outcome of patients who present with a distal fibula fracture who were treated with either intermedullary nail (IMN) ...
The best treatment for the open tibia fractures remains controversial. It is unknown whether minimally invasive locking plate or reamed intramedullary nail fixation will result in lower co...
This study evaluates fracture healing, anatomic reduction and return to functioning in patients with unstable Weber C type fractures of the ankle. Best outcomes are obtained when a good al...
The incidence of olecranon fractures is 12 per 100.000. Traditionally, isolated olecranon fractures have been treated with tension band wiring (TBW). There is a trend towards increased use...
The aim of the study to evaluate the effect of customized V pattern plate fixation versus a conventional superior-inferior mini plates fixation of mandibular angle fracture on patient sati...
The second largest of the TARSAL BONES. It articulates with the TIBIA and FIBULA to form the ANKLE JOINT.
The bone of the lower leg lateral to and smaller than the tibia. In proportion to its length, it is the most slender of the long bones.
The second longest bone of the skeleton. It is located on the medial side of the lower leg, articulating with the FIBULA laterally, the TALUS distally, and the FEMUR proximally.
Either of two extremities of four-footed non-primate land animals. It usually consists of a FEMUR; TIBIA; and FIBULA; tarsals; METATARSALS; and TOES. (From Storer et al., General Zoology, 6th ed, p73)
The bones of the free part of the lower extremity in humans and of any of the four extremities in animals. It includes the FEMUR; PATELLA; TIBIA; and FIBULA.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
