abstract

  • One can comprehensively approach tibial nonunions with the TSF. This is particularly useful in the setting of stiff hypertrophic nonunion, infection, bone loss, LLD, and poor soft-tissue envelope. Infected nonunions have a higher risk of failure than noninfected cases. Treatment after fewer failed surgeries will lead to a better outcome. Internal fixation can be used to salvage initial failures.
