Case Study
The article presents case studies of two patients who undergone bone-grafting for a segmental bone loss. The first case involved a 20-year-old woman who was struck by an automobile and was presented with an open diaphyseal fracture of the left tibia. The second case involved a patient who sustained an open tibial pilon fracture and dislocation of the right ankle. A literature review indicates that bone-grafting is applicable to patients with bone loss of epiphyseal or metaphyseal origin.

    The most common fracture of the proximal fifth metatarsal is the tuberosity avulsion fracture. Most of the time, the fracture is relatively undisplaced and it can be treated conservatively with a hard-soled shoe or walking cast. For painful intra-articular nonunion, internal fixation with or...
