Posterolateral Bone Grafting for Distal Tibial Nonunion

The technique of posterolateral bone grafting with iliac crest bone graft for distal third tibia and fibula atrophic nonunion provides a reliable method for achieving union. If patients with injuries at high risk for nonunion are followed closely and intervention is performed in a timely manner, additional fixation or revision of fixation is not necessary if the addition of appropriate osteoinductive, osteoconductive, and osteogenic material to the nonunion is performed.
