Resumen

LUMBRERAS VIRGOS, Ruth et al. Percutaneous osteosynthesis of intraarticular distal tibia fracture by locking compression plate (LCP). Rev Cubana Ortop Traumatol [online]. 2007, vol.21, n.2. ISSN 0864-215X.

The case of a 34-year-old patient with fractures of both tibial pilons after a car accident was presented. An emergency stabilization as percutaneous as possible was performed by locking compression plate (LCP) for tibial pilon and medial LCP for distal tibia with excellent results. The distal tibia fractures suppose a great challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon. The production mechanism is usually of high energy, so the bone injury is accompanied with great affectation of the soft tissues. The new implants allow to apply the angular stability principle, and it also gives the possibility of minimally invasive percutaneous fixation, preserving bone vascularization. The orientation of the orifices in medial LCP and the adaptability of LCP for tibial pilon made of these plates an excellent tool.

Palabras clave : Distal tibia; tibial pilon; percutaneous osteosynthesis.
