Resumen

NGCELWANE, Mthunzi. Expanding the orthopaedic training programme to improve the management of lower extremity trauma. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.4, pp. 14-15. ISSN 2309-8309.

Open fractures of the tibia continue to be a challenging problem in orthopaedics. This is particularly so in our country because of the high incidence of motor vehicle accidents. The results of the management of these injuries are not universally good, with non-unions and infections being the major complications. At the recent South African Orthopaedic Association Congress (2015), we learned that in some centres in our country the infection rate is as high as 40%.
