Abstract

The incidence of proximal tibia fractures occur only in 5%-11% of all tibia shaft fractures and often result
from high impetus trauma commonly seen in motor vehicle accidents.Repairing a bone defect, healing of
a nonunion, or surgery for the malunited fracture often requires bone grafting. There is a notable interest
among orthopaedic surgeons to learn whether the bone callus can be used as an autograft material.

Keywords: Proximal tibia, Malunion, Varus, Rotational deformity, Raft plate, Callus, Autograft.
