Tibial Shaft Implants

The tibia, also known as shinbone, is the most common type of fractured long bone in your body. This long bone includes the fibula, tibia, humerus and femur. A tibial shaft fracture generally occurs above the ankle, below the knee and along the length of the bone. Your doctor may recommend you for surgery if the fracture is:

• Not healing with the use of nonsurgical methods
• An open fracture with injuries that require continuous monitoring
• Very unstable due to large degrees of displacement and many bone fragments
