Answer

Regardless of whether internal or external fixation techniques are used, appropriate management of soft tissues is vital for successful management of severe injuries of the proximal tibia. Yu et al reviewed treatment with high-strength calcium sulphate [23] , Lasanianos et al followed up patients treated with freeze-dried cancellous allografts. [24] , and Russel et al compared the results of autogenous bone grafts and calcium phosphate cement. [25]
