In reading the article, "Urinary Incontinence in Frail Older Adults" by Sandra Engberg and Honhjin Li in the May-June 2017 Urologic Nursing, I was disappointed not to see percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) discussed as a treatment option.
The tibia is the most frequent location for stress fractures, while bilateral tibial fractures are extremely rare.
Fractures of distal tibia are critical because the tibial bone in lower end is subcutaneous with minimal muscle cover and with precarious blood supply, which makes fracture in this part of tibia prone for many complications like wound dehiscence, infections, delayed union, malunion and ankle stiffness following surgery or conservative management.
Background: The incidence of tibial fractures is increasing.
The evidence-based discussion is ample--for example, her discussion of "tibial torsion," which includes percentage of turnout that may be attributed to tibial torsion, and problems with excessive external tibial torsion, asymmetrical external tibial torsion, and internal tibial torsion.
The tibial bone is subcutaneous on its anteromedial surface, extending from the tibial tuberosity to the convergence of the tibialis anterior (TA) tendon and the extensor tendons.
