Effectiveness of the management of bony articular collapse with bony defects in tibial plateau fractures with the use of genex: An absorbable calcium composite synthetic bone graft

Lowery, K., et al. Journal of Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction 2018, 4(1): 20-25.
Products: genex®
The aim of this 40-patient retrospective study was to assess the effectiveness of genex in maintaining the position of elevated articular segments in tibial plateau fractures treated in a single level 1 major trauma centre.
  • All patients in the study went onto union in a mean time of 188 days, confirmed radiologically and clinically.
  • This study demonstrates that the application of genex is safe, effective, and provides adequate support for periarticular proximal tibia defects after restoration of articular congruity.
  • The authors would suggest that genex as a bone graft substitute is a useful adjunct in the treatment of these complex fractures.
