Abstract

Summary:

Tibial pilon fractures are complex injuries of soft tissue and bone that challenge patients and surgeons. Outcomes following this injury are guarded, and complications are frequently reported. Soft-tissue compromise at the time of injury is potentially amplified with surgical trauma, necessitating thorough evaluation, preoperative planning, and expertise to minimize complications and maximize outcomes. Understanding angiosome anatomy and typical fracture patterns (and their variations) allows for design of surgical tactics that accomplish these goals.
