25 patients were randomized to receive either minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) or intramedullary nailing (IMN) for an extra-articular distal tibial fracture. The purpose of the study was to compare the two treatment methods and assess whether one was superior to the other in treating extra-articular distal tibial fractures. The results of this study showed similarity in functional an...
