Abstract

Because the distal tibia is the third most common physeal injury, being able to assess and treat such a fracture accurately is a skill worth enhancing. Many factors contribute to the outcome of physeal injuries, but the physician's general knowledge of the physis, ability to order the right diagnostic tests, and classify the fracture can be the determining factors of quality care.
