Osteosynthesis of ankle fractures: Problems and solutions

A topical problem in traumatology is the choice of treatment methods for ankle fractures. The consideration of the anatomical and functional features of the ankle, condition of soft tissues in the area of fractures and the degree of edema in the ankle region is of great importance when choosing a particular treatment method. Therefore, reducing the degree of surgical aggression during surgical treatment of these injuries is an important task.. The aim of this study was to examine the possibilities of improving the results of surgical treatment of patients with ankle fractures with minimally invasive osteosynthesis technologies. This study presents the experience of treating 62 patients with fractures of the ankle joint. Two statistically homogeneous groups of patients with ankle fractures were identified. In one group, osteosynthesis with minimally invasive osteosynthesis techniques was used in 34 patients; in the other, osteosynthesis was performed in a conventional manner in 28 patients. A comparative analysis of the immediate and long-term results of treatment of patients in the study groups was carried out. The advantage of closed technology of osteosynthesis was proved. The preservation of the blood supply to the surrounding soft tissues with closed osteosynthesis provides a greater likelihood of fracture fusion, therefore the only condition in such cases is to eliminate the interposition of soft tissues in the area of lateral and medial ankle fractures.. The analysis of the obtained immediate and remote results of osteosynthesis in the two groups showed the best efficiency when using minimally invasive closed metal implantationtechnologies, especially when there are skin problems in the area of the injured ankle joint. © 2019, Advanced Scientific Research.
