In brief: Tibial Fracture
If the joint surface is exactly restored it is unlikely that arthritis will develop.

In brief: Osteoarthritis
Since these fractures involve a weight baering joint, there is a risk of developing arthritis over long term .
Sometimes these injuries are associated with intra-articular meniscal or cruciate or chondral tears.
