  1. Proximal tibia # malunion: most common
    • ValgusĀ 
    • Procarvatum: apex anterior
  2. Proximal tibia # deforming forces
    • Patellar tendon: Procarvatum
    • Hamstring: Distal fragment into flexion
    • Pes Anserinum: Proximal fragment into Varus
  3. Indications for conservative mgmt proximal tibia # 5
    • < 5 degrees varus valgus
    • <10 degrees sagital angulation
    • >50% cortical apposition
    • <1 cm shortening
    • <10 degrees rotation
  4. Approach ideal for proximal tibia nail
    Semiextended position:suprapatellar
  5. Starting point tibia IMN
    • Proximal to anterior margin of articular surface
    • Medial to lateral tibial spine
  6. IMN fracture reduction techniques
    Poller screws: Posterior > prevents procarvatum. Lateral concave side > prevent valgus

    Unicortical plating

    Femoral distractor

    Nail in semiextended position
