Abstract

Segmental fractures of the leg, though rare, often imply serious complications. We present a concept of management which considers the impaired circulation to fracture fragments. In our opinion plate osteosynthesis and medullary nailing should remain the exception; closed methods have priority. In open fractures external fixation devices are preferred.
