Author(s): Dr. Mahesh Kumar NB and Dr. Ullas Mahesh
Abstract: Introduction: Incidence of tibial diaphyseal fractures (26 per 100,000 persons per year in an average population) is the highest among long bone fractures. The present study has been taken to review the results of diaphyseal fractures of tibia, both closed & open, treated with IMLIN. Result: Tibial fractures were more commonly seen in males, 30-55 years constituted majority of thr fractures, dominant side was commonly involved. Conclusion: Closed Tibial fractures have better union rates & lesser the complications when compared to open tibial fractures which are treated with intramedullary interlocking technique.
