Las fracturas de la tibia son las más frecuentes dentro de los huesos largos y corresponden con el 24% de las fracturas abiertas, siendo los accidentes de tránsito responsables de 50%. Los defectos óseos son el resultado de lesiones en los miembros por trauma agudo severo con pérdida ósea. El uso del injerto vascularizado de peroné para defectos óseos severos en tibia y fémur tiene una tasa de éxito de 61% a 91%. Caso Clínico: Se trata de paciente masculino de 21 años de edad con antecedentes fractura de tibia y peroné derecho en 1/3 medio que presentó pseudoartrosis atrófica con defecto óseo de 1/3 medio de tibia; Se realizó cirugía reconstructiva con osteotomí...
