There is no approach associated with the therapy you selected. However, the list below shows all available approaches.
Safe zones for pin insertion
Inserting percutaneous instrumentation through safe zones reduces the risk of damage to neurovascular structures.
The anterolateral approach, through an incision slightly lateral to the tibial crest, reflects the anterior compartment muscles from the lateral tibial surface.
The anteromedial approach to the tibial shaft is through an incision placed just lateral to the anterior tibial crest.
Medial approach, MIO
Minimally invasive fixation of tibial fractures is preferably done through the medial approach, especially for distal fractures.
Lateral approach, MIO
The lateral approach is used for minimally invasive osteosynthesis if the medial soft tissues are injured.
The posterolateral approach can be used for open plate fixation of the tibia on its posterior surface. This may be necessary when the anterior soft tissues are compromised.
The posteromedial approach can be used for open plate fixation of the tibia on its posterior surface. Typically, this approach would be chosen, when direct exposure for ORIF is desired, but only the posteromedial soft tissues are safe to incise.
