Part 17 - 4 October 2016

Written by Dr Matija Krkovic

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.

Pt is still walking with crutches, shorter distances unaided. No further changes in lower leg alignment. At the moment there is 10-14 deg of valgus. Borderline deformity but we will accept it for now.

Pin sites still clean, no sign of instability.

X-rays show further progress towards union in the proximal fracture when regenerate is well matured.

X-rays also show that fibula has been left in place and did not travel together with the distal tibia. I don't know why I did not spot it earlier. Surprisingly there is no instability of the ankle joint neither any pain coming from the ankle joint.

Plan:

  1. CT scan requested
  2. Follow up in six weeks
