Özet

Treatment of tibial osteomyelitis with infected, necrotic, unstable bone segments (Cierny-Mader Type IV local osteomyelitis) includes debridement and segmental resection, which results in long bone defects. Reconstruction may be with distraction osteogenesis. Segmental bone transport and acute compression and distraction techniques are two main distraction osteogenesis techniques used in the treatment of Type IV local tibial osteomyelitis.
