Dr Daniel Chan demonstrates the use of intramedullary nailing (IM) systems for open diaphyseal transverse tibial fracture, and small plating systems for ankle fracture fixation. He performs the IM nail fixation, with guidance for fracture reduction, guide wire insertion and intramedullary canal drilling. For medial malleolus and distal fibula ankle fracture, Dr Chan outlines use of the EVOS™ MINI Plating System, with advice for fragment rotation, before discussing postoperative assessment.
