Abstract: Distal tibia fractures even without articular involvement can be difficult to treat. The aim of our study was to compare the clinical and functional outcomes in patients with distal tibia fractures treated with either plating or intramedullary nailing (IMN). We evaluated the clinical and radiological results with at least 1 year follow up. Our results showed that the distal tibia fractures can be successfully treated with both interlocking as well as plating although our study showed improved outcomes in intramedullary nailing group. We believe that a larger prospective study is required to establish the findings conclusively.
