Abstract

Experimental studies on factors governing fracture stability, including clinical observations, indicate that the initial shortening at the time a fracture is immobilized in functional braces remains essentially unchanged. The position is retained despite the fact that functional weight bearing is permitted prior to development of intrinsic stability. Hydraulic stability is important in the prevention of shortening at the fracture site while interosseous membrane and elastic soft tissues play a significant role in the prevention of shortening, but the combination of all is potentially responsible for the maintenance of stability of a fracture of the tibia.
