Abstract provided by Publisher
This article presents the possibilities of orthotic management of tibial diaphyseal fractures. Functional braces, prefabricated or custom-made allow early guarded weightbearing, mobilization of intact joints and shortening of treatment. Understanding of the philosophy, indications, clinical practise and possible complications of orthotic use is essential for appropriate decision making and good results in treatment.
