Guest Editors: John A Scolaro, Derek J. Donegan and Hassan R. Mir Literature has evaluated the advantages and disadvantages of not only ORIF for distal tibia fractures, but also fixation with intramedullary nails and thin wire ring fixators. Studies have shown that fracture malalignment and nonunion, as well as soft tissue complications, are not uncommon and can occur regardless of the fixation modality chosen. Advancements in both orthopaedic implants, as well as surgical techniques has improved and broadened our means of treating these injuries. Issue reviews current evidence on the management of distal tibia fractures plus information on techniques relevant to the management of these injuries.
