General considerations

41-C2

Complete articular fractures, articular simple and metaphyseal multifragmentary. Angular stable fixation is of considerable help in the treatment of these fractures because of their metaphyseal and diaphyseal extension.
Intraarticular fractures should not be immobilized except as a temporizing measure prior to definite surgical treatment.
