Abstract: ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to compare midterm functional and radiographic results of minimal invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) with intramedullary nailing (IMN) of simple intra-articular distal tibial fractures (AO-OTA type 43 C1-C2).MethodsSeventy-three simple intra-articular distal tibial fracture patients were evaluated retrospectively. All were treated between 2009 and 2014. The average age of the patients was 40.3 years. Thirty-seven patients were treated with IMN and 36 patients were treated w… Show more

“…The second important moment in the distal tibia fracture treatment also refers to soft tissue protection. All techniques that spare the soft tissue above the fracture, such as external fixation, intramedullary fixation[ 11 ], minimally invasive approach, should be preferred to the open surgical approach for treating distal tibia fracture due to the specificities of the rigid soft-tissue envelope of distal tibia [ 3 , 12 , 13 ].…”

“…The application of the minimally invasive approach in cases of postponed definitive intervention and pre-shaped anatomical locking plate application with internal fixation, theoretically and practically leads to drastic improvement of the quality of life and reduction of the disability of patients with intra-articular distal tibia fracture [ 1 , 3 , 9 - 11 ].…”

“…This needs to be taken into consideration when making a choice of treatment method, and the patients need to be well informed about these complications. In an attempt to elucidate this concern, the same author reported his comparative findings in another paper 35 where they used MIPO in one group of patients and intramedullary nailing in another but similar group of patients. They conceded that MIPO is the first preference according to the literature.…”

“…Only few studies have investigated the treatment of simple tibial pilon fractures with IMN [63][64][65] . Marcus et al [63] reported low complication rates but emphasized in the need for high level of experience to produce great results.…”
