PERCUTANEOUS REDUCTION WITH K-WIRES OF A BIMALLEOLAR SALTER HARRIS III: A CASE REPORT

0

A Salt Harris Fracture is a fracture involving the epiphyseal plate or growth plate of a bone. It is a common injury found in children; occurring in 15% of childhood long bone fractures. Injuries of the ankle joint are common. In our case report, we describe the case of a thirteen-year-old patient under our treatment at the Orthopaedic emergency depart-ment of Val D’Elsa Hospital (in Campostaggia Poggibonsi, Siena), who presented with a bimalleolar Salter Harris III fracture after a sport trauma. We reduced the bimalleolar Salter Harris III with percutaneous K-wires instead of an open access and two screws (one on the top and another on the bottom of the epiphyseal plate of distal tibia). We per-formed it according to a revision of scientific literature. The result was a satisfactory re-duction of the bimalleolar Salter Harris III.
