Treatment of ununited tibial diaphyseal fractures with pulsing electromagnetic fields.


One hundred and twenty-five patients with one hundred and twenty-seven ununited fractures of the tibial diaphysis were treated exclusively with pulsing electromagnetic fields. The over-all success rate in healing of the fracture with this surgically non-invasive out-patient method was 87 per cent. The success rate was not materially affected by the age or sex of the patient, the length of prior disability, the number of previous failed operations, or the presence of infection or metal fixation.
