    • Abstract:
      Introduction: Accidents currently rank first among causes of complex lower limb injuries. The most common open long bone fractures are tibial fractures. Estimates indicate that there are 492,000 new fractures every year, with a prevalence of 100,000 cases that do not heal. Clinical case: Young, female patient who underwent emergency surgery for a Gustilo III A open comminuted fracture of the left proximal tibia. Surgical toilette was performed several times until the soft tissues improved. Then internal fi xation of large fragments was performed with a cortical screw and Professor Rodrigo Álvarez Cambras' external fi xator was used to heal the fracture. The combined approach consisting of internal and external fixation is discussed within the setting of these diffi cult fractures. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

      Introducción: Los accidentes son actualmente la primera causa de lesiones complejas en los miembros inferiores. Las fracturas de huesos largos expuestas más comunes son las fracturas tibiales. Se ha estimado que hay 492,000 nuevas fracturas cada año con una prevalencia de 100,000 casos sin consolidar. Caso clínico: Paciente femenina, joven, operada de urgencia por fractura conminutiva expuesta tipo IIIA de la clasifi cación de Gustilo del tercio proximal de la tibia izquierda. Se realiza toalet quirúrgico en varias ocasiones hasta el mejoramiento de las partes blandas, realizando posteriormente fi jación interna de los fragmentos grandes con tornillo cortical y colocación de fi jador externo del profesor Rodrigo Álvarez Cambras para la curación de la fractura. Se discute esta forma combinada de fi jación interna y externa en estas difíciles fracturas [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
