Part 13 - 11 April 2016

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.

No major problems. All pin sites clean, no irritation. Possible sinus at the level of the middle third of the anterior tibia is still quiet. Inflammation markers still inside acceptable limits (CRP 5, ESR 20). At the moment no major concern.
Patient is walking with the crutches but get pain from the knee. I am certainly not surprised about his knee pain. interesting part is that the extensor mechanism is still intact and working, despite broken wire and not augmentation ever performed for the patellar tendon. Lesson to learn?

Fracture is healing nicely with good regenerate. In my opinion the regenerate is still not strong enough to support the leg, when fracture is probably sufficiently healed. Regenerate will be strong enough when there will be no more visible line from the corticotmy (new knowledge?).

Plan:

  1. Continue with the treatment and further follow up in 8 weeks
