Fifty-eight adult patients with extra-articular proximal tibial fractures were randomized to receive fixation with either an intramedullary nail (IMN) or proximal tibial plate (PTP) technique in order to compare the clinical efficacy of the two techniques. Intramedullary nailing resulted in shorter hospital stay and time until union when compared to the use of a proximal tibial plate. No significa...
