ABSTRACT

PurposeIn treating distal third tibial fractures, restoration of the axial alignment and therefore accurate reduction of the distal fragment minimise the risk of tibiotalar joint malalignment. The aim of this study is to investigate whether there was a difference in accuracy of reduction and axial alignment, when nailing distal third tibial fractures using either the suprapatellar or the infrapatellar tibial nailing entry technique.MethodsThis retrospective cohort study compared alignment of intramedullary nails performed for distal third tibial fractures between 2015 and 2018 through the suprapatellar and infrapatellar approach at a UK Level 1 trauma centre. It compared a consecutive series of 74 suprapatellar nails and 51 infrapatellar nails, with radiographic assessment of tibial alignment in the antero-posterior and sagittal planes. It included inter- and intra-observer analyses of radiographic measurements.ResultsIn the coronal plane, mean malalignment in the suprapatellar technique group was 2.8 ± 0.7° and 4.7 ± 0.9° in the infrapatellar technique group (P < 0.01). In the sagittal plane, mean malalignment in the suprapatellar technique group was 4.0 ± 0.8° and 3.5 ± 0.9° in the infrapatellar technique group (P = 0.42). Intra- and inter-observer analysis showed strongly positive correlations between observers.ConclusionsWe suggest that the suprapatellar technique may improve coronal plane alignment when intramedullary nailing distal tibial fractures. There was no significant difference in alignment in the sagittal plane. We conclude that the suprapatellar technique may be superior in preventing malalignment when treating distal third tibial fractures, potentially improving clinical outcome. More... »
