Results perhaps would have been improved by more frequent open reduction, bone grafting, and internal fixation of fractures with severely depressed articular fragments. However, the use of circular external fixation obtained results comparable with other series, and we believe it is appropriate for treatment of these complex tibial fractures, especially those with a poor soft-tissue envelope.
