Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis of distal tibial fractures: a comparison of medial and lateral plating

Both medial and lateral minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) produced good clinical and radiological results for distal tibial fractures. Lateral MIPO may be an effective option when soft tissue condition on the medial side of the distal tibia is poor or when the fracture line is close to the ankle joint.
