Abstract
Assessment of patient with fractures of the distal tibia should be carried out in a systematic fashion to assure full evaluation and so other injuries are not over looked. Particular attention must be paid to the contralateral lower extremity and the lumbar and thoracic spines, particularly when these injuries occur as a result of a fall or motor vehicle accident. Fractures of the lower third tibia resulted from low energy trauma or high energy trauma with good skin condition. In this method can access anatomical reduction but may result in extensive soft tissue dissection, disruption of blood supply, nonunion, delayed union and wound complication and infection. So, minimal invasive plate fixation (MIPO) is recommended to limit this complication and given more stability. The basic principles of this technique include in direct closed reduction, extra periosteal dissection, anatomic alignment. Plate length and screw density are key factors for the stability of fixation
