Concomitant Tibia Shaft and Distal Triplane Fractures



Concomitant tibia shaft fracture and triplane fracture of the distal tibia are very rare in the pediatric orthopaedic traumatology. The very limited number of cases in the world literature has all been documented in adolescent patients. Appropriate diagnostic evaluation and treatment is required to minimize the incidence of delayed or missed diagnosis of the ankle injury, prevent complications and optimize outcomes of both fractures. A new case as well as an extensive review of the literature is presented in this editorial.
