  DISTAL TIBIA FRACTURE  Name: Ruzaidi IsmailR/N: 328813 Case Summary: The above is forty years old Malay man, admitted ith a !om lain of ri#ht an$le ain and inability to al$ folloin# a fall from a roof of his house hile ad%ustin# the television antenna& There as no loss of !ons!iousness, heada!he or #iddiness& No ne!$, ba!$ or hi ain&'n e(amination he as alert and !omfortable& )is vital si#ns ere stable& The findin#s !onfined to his ri#ht an$le& )is ri#ht an$le as sollen and deformed and also his ri#ht foot& The an$le as tender and the ran#e of movement as severely limited due to ain& the dorsalis edis and the osterior tibialis ulses ere felt and there as no loss of sensation of the ri#ht foot noted&Radio#ra hi! e(amination reveals that there as a !omminuted fra!ture of the distal tibia involvin# the arti!ular surfa!e and the distal meta hysis re#ion& There as also transverse fibula fra!ture&* dia#nosis of a !omminuted distal tibia fra!ture, Ruedi + *ll#oer ty e II as made&)e as ut on ri#ht !al!aneal tra!tion and his ri#ht le# as elevated ith ohler + raun frame& -old !om ression as also administered& Re#ular !he!$in# of the neurovas!ular status as also done&.olloin# day,  + ray on tra!tion as done& *li#nment of the fra!ture as a!!e table but the arti!ular surfa!e as still dis la!ed& 1  *fter 10 days of tra!tion o en redu!tion and fi(ation as done& The fibula as lated ith 1/3 tubular late and the distal tibia fra#ment as redu!ed ith minimal in!ision and under Ima#e Intensifier the fra#ment as s!reed to the to the main fra#ment& .olloin# that an e(ternal fi(ator as a lied a!ross the an$le and the redu!tion as !he!$ed a#ain under Ima#e Intensifier&osto erative !he!$  + ray shos a #ood redu!tion and ali#nment& )e as dis!har#ed ell three days ost o eratively and as res!ribed ith a non ei#ht  bearin# !rut!h &)e as as$ed to !ome for follo u in 2 ee$s at the !lini!& Discussion: ilon fra!ture is a distal tibia fra!ture, hi!h involved the meta hyseal re#ion and the distal arti!ular surfa!e& This ty e of fra!ture is rare and it involved in about 10 of the tibia fra!tures& To different me!hanisms are believed to be res onsible for the ma%ority of tibial lafond fra!ture& The e(tent of soft tissue in%ury asso!iated ith these fra!tures dire!tly refle!ts the me!hanism of in%ury and the amount of ener#y absorbed at the time of a!!ident&.ra!tures resultin# from rotational for!e ty i!ally have a s iral sha e ith minimal to moderate dis la!ement of the fra!tured fra#ments& This ty e of in%ury usually asso!iated ith minimal soft tissue in%ury, althou#h si#nifi!ant sellin# may o!!ur&*(ial !om ression ty e tibial lafond fra!tures often a result of hi#hener#y trauma and !ommonly o!!urs in a motor vehi!le a!!ident and fall from a hei#ht& This ty e of fra!ture ty i!ally has #reater meta hyseal and arti!ular !omminution, soft tissue in%uries and sellin#& The attern of the fra!tures de ends u on osition of the foot and an$le durin# the trauma& This ty e of in%ury has a hi#her ris$ of develo ment of   osttraumati!
