Event Description
Device report from synthes reports an event in (b)(6) as follows: this report is being filed after the review of the following journal article: jung, g. -h. Et al (2010), management of fractures of distal tibia by minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis through an anterior approach, journal of the korean society of orthopedic surgery, vol. 45 (6), pages 473-481 (korea, south). The aim of this retrospective study is to report the usability of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis through an anterior approach for distal tibial fractures, including pilon fractures by analyzing the outcomes and complications of the procedure after performing. Between march 2007 to december 2008, a total of 13 patients (10 male and 3 female) with a mean age of 45 years (range, 16-66 years) were treated with minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis through an anterior approach. Surgery was performed using two options for distal tibia fracture that include single locking compression plate (aldtp¿, synthes, switzerland) fixation and aldtp with medial lcp (mp¿, dmt¿, synthes, usa). For patients with accompanying injuries, other devices were also applied. The mean follow-up was 16. 2 months (range: 12 to 30 months). The following complications were reported: a (b)(6)-year-old male patient had fibular shortening. A (b)(6)-year-old male patient had a superficial infection and was cured only by wound treatment. A (b)(6)-year-old male patient had a metal failure (plate rupture), tibialis anterior tendon adhesion, and nonunion. The plate rupture occurred about 6 weeks after surgery due to pre-weight bearing. In this case, additional surgical treatment was required, but the patient refused treatment and is wearing a brace. A (b)(6)-year-old male patient had tibialis anterior tendon adhesion. A (b)(6)-year-old male patient had a superficial infection and was cured only by wound treatment. In 1 patient, partial skin defects occurred, but skin grafting was not required. This report is for an unknown synthes 3. 5 lcp anterolateral distal tibia plate, unknown synthes lcp metaphyseal plate, unknown lcp medial distal tibial plate, and unknown synthes locking screws. This report is for (1) unk: plates: lcp medial distal tibial plate. This report is 6 of 12 for (b)(4). Related product complaint: (b)(4).
