Highly unstable complex C3-type distal femur fracture: can double plating via a modified Olerud extensile approach be a standby solution
Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, 07/05/2012
El–Sayed Khalil A et al. – Use of this modified highly invasive approach facilitated anatomical reconstruction of C3–type complex distal femoral fractures with lower expected complication rate and acceptable clinical outcome, especially offering good reconstruction of the suprapatellar pouch area. It can be considered as a standby solution for managing these difficult injuries.
