C2 tibial shaft fracture


Compression plating is typically used to obtain absolute stability for transverse or short oblique fracture patterns. In this case secure fixation of the wedge fragment at the proximal fracture line will convert this to a transverse fracture, suitable for axial compression.

Note: Because different fracture configurations can occur at the different fracture levels of a segmental fracture, hybrid techniques are often needed.
