Those without fibular fracture require special considerations, primarily because of the higher incidence of varus angular deformities in this group (Fig. 17). This is a complication likely to be seen with closed treatment regardless of whether or not a brace is used. According to one of our recent studies based on 96 tibial fractures without associated fibular fractures, they healed with an average varus angulation of 4° (1 °_12°). 9° of varus. The buttressing provided by the intact fibula 40 a Fractures of the Tibia b d c Fig.

It is doubtful whether one can justify a surgical intervention with its associated risks and increased costs for the sole purpose of correcting deviations that will not adversely affect the patient. The early recognition of unacceptable deformities or shortening during the initial management of tibial fractures obviously requires different approaches, such as remanipulation and nonfunctional casting, external fixation, or intramedullary nailing. As indicated earlier, the acceptability of shortening and angular deformities must be individualized according' to patient age, sex, occupation, social status etc.

A In the second stage of plaster application, two rolls of plaster are applied with the ankle held at 90° so that they overlap the first stage of plaster application and continue proximally to the level of the tibial tubercle. Plaster is applied snugly with firm compression throughout the soft tissue mass in the calf. Compression is applied firmly in the medial posterior aspects of the proximal half of the soft tissues, but firm compression is avoided in the lateral and anterior portions of the proximal calf to avoid pressure along the tibial crest and about the fibular head and neck.
