AbstractThe most typical long bone fractures are those of the tibia and fibula shaft. More than 45 both bone leg fractures occur annually in the average population for every one lakh people. There is a wide range of injury mechanism and severity associated with tibial fractures. Between the ages of 20 and 40, young males have the highest incidence of adult both bone leg fractures. Nonunion and malunion are more common in tibial fractures than they are in other body fractures. The most common fracture site in the tibia is the tibial diaphysis, and approximately 80% of these injuries are linked to fibular fractures.
