Part 10 - 5 January 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.

CT scan was done and showed very promising signs of healing. Not healed yet, but did not expect it anyway. I am very pleased with the results.

Otherwise pin sites still OK, no signs of infection. Walking slightly better but not as I would like it to be. Created an additional prescription for TSF to translate the distal tibia medially, but keep slight external rotation of the foot.

Below you can see sagittal and coronal reconstruction CT images, where good calus formation can be seen. Also you can see how we really managed to "shove" the proximal fragment into the mid fragment's medullary canal. It really worked. You can also see some cement left in the lateral condyle which we were aware of from the beginning.

Plan:

  1. Complete the TSF prescription
  2. Continue mobilising
  3. Wait for consolidation of the regenerate and for the fracture to heal
