Tibial Shaft Fractures – A fracture along the tibial shaft means that the shinbone broke along its larger, front bone, somewhere between the knee and ankle joints. Diagnosing Knee Fractures Physicians will diagnose various knee fractures through a combination of physical examinations and various diagnostic imaging techniques such as Xrays, CT. Tibial shaft fractures are mostly due to falls during recreational activities. They can be treated conservatively by cast immobilization with excellent outcomes, including four to six weeks of long leg cast followed by a short leg cast or a removable fracture boot. However, there are cases where operative interventions are essential.
Treatment of a Tibial Shaft Fracture. The treatment of a fracture of the tibial shaft is essential because, if not treated correctly, serious complications could develop. The tibia is the lower bone of the leg. A tibial shaft fracture takes place in the long part of the bone. The shaft of the tibia is only one of several parts of the tibia.

the tibial shaft. However, diabetes, HIV status, and smoking, in particu-lar, have been associated with de-layed union as well as a higher rate and increased severity of infections. Aderinto and Keating13 reported deep infection in two of four open tibial shaft fractures in . Fractures of the tibial shaft are one of the most common long bone fractures in the body (1). The incidence of tibial shaft fractures ranges from per , patient years. The most common mechanisms for tibial shaft fractures include falls, sporting accidents and high-energy mechanisms, such as soccer and motorcycle collisions (2).

(OBQ) A year-old male sustains a Type IIIB open, comminuted tibial shaft fracture distal to a well-fixed total knee arthroplasty that is definitively treated with a free flap and external fixation.
Nine months after fixator removal, he presents with a painful oligotrophic nonunion/5. A tibial shaft fracture occurs along the length of the bone, below the knee and above the ankle.
It typically takes a major force to cause this type of broken leg. Motor vehicle collisions, for example, are a common cause of tibial shaft fractures. In many tibia fractures, the smaller bone in the lower leg (fibula) is broken as well.
Anatomy. Tibial shaft fractures are defined as fractures that occur 5 cm distal to the tibial plateau and 5 cm proximal to the tibial plafond. Tibial shaft fractures are the most common type of long bone fracture. The incidence is about 26 tibial diaphyseal fractures perpeople per year. III.
Objective: Detection of tibial fractures in which a concomitant ankle injury may exist. Design: Prospective study. Setting: Department of Trauma Surgery, University Hospital. Patients: 43 (%) of patients with a tibial fracture were found to have an associated injury of the ankle joint. Intervention: Analysis of all patients with tibial fractures regarding typical mechanisms of injuries.
Tibial shaft fractures can cause further injury and complications, including the following: The ends of broken bones are often sharp and can cut or tear surrounding muscles, nerves, or blood vessels. Acute compartment syndrome may develop.
This is a painful condition that occurs when pressure within the muscles builds to dangerous levels. Recovery time depends on the extent and type of fracture. Some shaft fractures of the tibia take as little as four months to heal, with more extreme cases taking a Author: Neel Duggal.
Tibial fractures are the most common type of long bone are usually caused by direct trauma and may occur proximally (tibial plateau fracture), at the shaft, or fracture may solely involve the tibia or the fibula, or it may involve only a small amount of tissue covers the bone structures, there is a higher risk of open fracture, neurovascular injury.
Despite their common occurrence, the evidence base to direct the care of tibial shaft fractures is relatively poor. Moreover, there is little evidence to support the commonly recommended parameters of acceptable fracture alignment (less than 5–7 degrees of varus/valgus, less than 10 degrees of flexion/extension, less than cm of shortening.
Healing time following a tibial shaft fracture can be highly dependent on the type of fracture, the severity of the injury and the treatment method chosen. In general, tibial shaft fractures will take a minimum of 3 months for healing, and it is not unusual for fractures.
A tibial shaft fracture is a break of the larger lower leg bone below the knee joint. This occurs along the long portion of the bone between the knee and ankle joints. These fractures usually result from high energy injuries such as car accidents in younger patients and most often from falls in the elderly patient.
Tibial Shaft Fractures. This type of fracture takes place in the middle, or shaft (diaphysis), of the tibia. There are three types of tibial shaft fractures: Nondisplaced: A fracture where the broken bones remain aligned.
This type of fracture is usually seen in children under four. It can be caused by a mildly traumatic event or a twisting injury. Tibial shaft fractures are one of my favorite surgeries.
Are you ready for your audition rotations well, look no more, Student2Stud has your back. We are working tirelessly to get you the. management of open tibial shaft fractures. However, circular fixation more commonly has been used for reconstruction of open tibial shaft fractures associated with bone loss or infection.6 Despite acceptable union rates, high rates of complications have plagued most.
A spiral fracture, also known as torsion fracture, is a type of complete fracture. It occurs due to a rotational, or twisting, force. Complete fractures are categorized based on the way the bone.
Some tibial shaft fractures heal within 4 months, yet many may take 6 months or longer to heal. This is particularly true with open fractures and fractures in patients who are less healthy. Early motion. Many doctors encourage leg motion early in the recovery period.
For example, if soft tissue injury is present with a fracture, the knee, ankle. Introduction. Pediatric tibial fractures are the third most common pediatric long bone fracture after the femur and forearm, representing 15% of all pediatric fractures.
1 Of these, approximately 39% occur in the middle third, and 30% are associated with fibula fracture. 2,3 The average age of occurrence is 8 years, with males affected twice as often as females.

Tibial shaft fractures are often caused by high-energy trauma with severe concomitant soft-tissue injuries. Solid bone union without hypertrophy, fast mobilization and full range of motion without further soft-tissue damages are the aims of the therapy.
Non-displaced tibial shaft fractures in patients with good compliance can be treated. Previous stress fractures have been identified as a risk factor. Along with history of stress fractures, a narrow tibial shaft, high degree of hip external rotation, osteopenia, osteoporosis, and pes cavus are common predisposing factors for stress fractures.
Common causes in sport that result in stress fractures include. Over training.Fractures of the tibial shaft are the most common long bone. fracture, 3. with % being open injuries in one large study.
4. Estimates of the average annual incidence range from 17 to For tibial shaft fractures that are treated non-operatively, the patient should remain non-weight bearing for 6 weeks while in a long leg case.
Patients treated in an external fixation, especially for length unstable fractures should remain non-weight bearing for 6 weeks for extra-articular fractures and up to 12 weeks for intraarticular fractures.
