Open tibial pilon fracture with an extensive osteochondral defect: Staged reconstruction
Keywords:Trauma, Allograft, Tibial fractures
The surgical treatment of large post-traumatic osteochondral defects related to open tibial pilon fractures is challenging. Staged treatment with soft tissue damage control and bone reconstruction in the second half is often the best therapeutic option. We present a technical tip using osteochondral allograft to reconstruct an area with extensive bone loss in the distal tibial epiphysis after a gunshot wound, describing the treatment stages and good clinical results. Level of Evidence V; Therapeutic Studies; Expert Opinion.
