Abstract

Circular external fixation for the treatment of any tibio-fibular fracture should be taken into consideration as a versatile, minimally invasive technique. Patients should be given this option (when indicated) as one of their fixation alternatives. The healing times we reported are comparable to IM nailing healing times in the mentioned article. Further studies with outcome scores, complications, and long-term outcomes are necessary for circular external fixation in the treatment of tibial fractures.
