Managing delayed union and non union of tibial fractures treated with Ilizarov fixators

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Delayed union is the result of lack of compliance in therapy, poor reduction of the fracture, tobacco and drug abuse, physiologic factors, and necrotic bone and infection at the fracture site. Treatment consists of compliance with therapy, improvement of fracture stability, cessation of smoking and drug use, bone grafting, and delayed exploration of necrotic fragments at the fracture site.
