Distal tibial fractures generally require post-operative weight-bearing restrictions. Especially geriatric patients are unable to follow these recommendations. To increase post-operative implant stability and enable early weight-bearing, augmentation of the primary osteosynthesis by cerclage is desirable. The purpose of this study was to identify the stabilizing effects of a supplemental cable cerclage following plate fixation of distal tibial spiral fractures compared to solitary plate osteosynthesis.
