This hero is built with a flex layout, aligned and justified so that the content will always be centered horizontally and vertically. To change this section’s background, select the “Hero Overlay” then scroll to the background section of the Style panel and replace the image. You can also adjust the opacity of the overlay’s black background for better contrast.

It looks that we have completed the last prescription. The patient followed the prescription until noticed that the foot position is what he wanted and than stopped. This is exactly the level of involvement I expect from the patients.

​No problems with pin sites apart from occasionally appearing discharge in the mid fragment (described above) which in my opinion represents low grade infection, which we will keep an eye on. Does not look related to any pin site.

Patient can walk unaided for shorter distances but limited ankle dorsiflexion is still causing problems and forcing him to walk with more externally rotated right foot than he would like to.

Ap and lateral view of the tibia. Distal tibia joint line is now in perfect alignment against the tibial shaft. Much better than before and this has been confirmed clinically. Really impressive how theory works in practice.

Plan:

  1. Continue with physio and exercises
  2. Walking and weight bearing as tolerated
  3. Further follow up in 6 weeks
