The first stage is usually an external fixator to hold the fracture out to length and in better reduction. With improvements in surgical techniques and implants, complication rates have declined and outcomes have improved; however, the overall prognosis for these injuries often remains poor. Pilon fractures in the distal tibia result from axial forces that can range from low to high energy and produce a spectrum of articular and metaphyseal injuries. 2017 Aug;120(8):632-639. doi: 10.1007/s00113-017-0363-9.

A pilon fracture, is a fracture of the distal part of the tibia, involving its articular surface at the ankle joint. Additional research has been focused on alternative methods of managing these complex, and sometimes non-reconstructable, injuries with the use of external fixation, minimally invasive internal fixation, and primary arthrodesis. A pilon fracture is a type of distal tibial fracture involving the tibial plafond. Complications are high with treatment of pilon fractures, and prognosis is worse than most other orthopedic injuries given high rates of infection, joint stiffness, and tibiotalar arthritis.

Ankle joint reconstruction by circular frame external fixator for a severely comminuted and contaminated open tibial pilon fracture (AO 43-C3.3). This topography is designed to maximize the articular surface area with the dome of the talus and minimize the stress on the ankle joint. This injury occurs as the result of a high-energy vertical axial loading (e.g., fall from height, motor vehicle crash) with impaction of the talus onto the tibial plafond, resulting in a long oblique distal metaphyseal tibia fracture, as well as fracture of the tibiotalar articular surface. 2019 Aug;43(8):1939-1950. doi: 10.1007/s00264-019-04344-8.

Posterior pilon fracture is a common type of intraarticular fracture encountered in clinical practice. It is therefore useful to explore the evolution of different treatment strategies in an effort to reconstruct the axial alignment and articular surface, while minimizing additional damage to the surrounding soft tissues. The pilon fracture was first described by Destot (1) in 1911. 1999 Feb;13(2):78-84. doi: 10.1097/00005131-199902000-00002. The tibia and fibula are held together by the interosseous membrane, anterior inferior and posterior inferior tibiofibular ligaments. Type-II fractures are defined as simple displacement without comminution of the articular surface, while type-III fractures are defined by substantial articular comminution often associated with metaphyseal impaction. Approaches to Treating Pilon Fractures. Other fractures involving the roof of the ankle joint may be called "pilon fractures," but have a better prognosis because the compressive force is coupled with torsional forces.

Perspective on optical imaging for functional assessment in musculoskeletal extremity trauma surgery. Isolated fractures of the bones that have minimal to no disruption of the joint surface have an excellent long-term prognosis provided that there is excellent anatomic position of the fractures. In Ruedi and Allgower’s original series, the majority of their patients sustained pilon fractures from skiing injuries. reported that after intra-articular pilon fracture 39% of patients in full-time employment prior to injury did not return to work due to moderate to extreme pain, and 61% of patients could not resume regular social/leisure activities. Pilon fractures are often severe injuries that can permanently affect the ankle joint. The worse the cartilage damage at the time of injury, the worse the long-term prognosis. The Prognosis on Pilon Fracture Treatment and Recovery Immediately stabilize anyone suffering a high-energy pilon fracture. This was accomplished with reduction and stabilization of the fibula, as well as the lateral plafond.
