Surgical repair of malunions

A malunion occurs when a fracture heals in the incorrect anatomical alignment or position. This can occur from the bone being shortened by the injury, a twist or rotation of the fracture after it is set, or by bending the injury in a way that shifts the fracture. This complication is possible in all types of fractures, and is repaired by surgery. Typical surgical techniques would include the insertion of plates or screws to ensure that the fracture maintains its position once it is set.
