Broken fibula & tibia in 99. Leg length discrepancy of 1.5" but only tibia is short. Fibula bowing. Problems feet up. Pursue Taylor spatial frame?
Other options?: You're 30 and no longer growing, problem won't get worse. A 3/4" heel lift on your shorter leg may resolve most issues. If not, surgery to lengthen the short tibia with external device is possible but results may not be worth the effort to get there. You really need to discuss with orthopedics your current issues with shorter leg and if they will resolve with surgery. ...Read more

"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally
do u think cast will heel up?
Probably: Fortunately the cuneiforms are pretty rigid with alot of soft tissue/capsular attachment that help form the midfoot. A cast should help to allow things to heal and ossify. This may predispose you to some midfoot pain/arthritis as you get older. A good arch support may help longterm. I'd let your orthopod determine if cast or boot or postop shoe is appropriate w/o seeing films. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It can only separate more, & a simple reduction & fixation will do what U want it 2 do, reunite the fragment 2 the tibia. The image is a tear & requires a major reconstruction if not fixed. U risk the fragment becoming a nonunion. ...Read more

May need more surg: U obviously have mal alignment ; may need some more surg 2 correct or help. Could have had a head start if done @ time of injury. U may need more realignment of soft tissues proximately such as medial tightening. A distal boney realignment is hampered by the tibial stem of the component. It could still b done ; both injuries can heal @ the same time. ...Read more
