Abstract

INTRODUCTION: We present the results of a two-stage reconstruction performed with autologous segmental tibia bone transfer on a distal tibia Gustilo-Anderson type-IIIC open fracture in this paper. Our aim is to discuss the results of this surgery, potential failures and complications in our procedures, and ways to protect against osteolysis.
