A study of the recent literature on the primary plating of fractures of the tibia induced us to make a retrospective survey of the cases treated in this way at the Toscano Orthopaedic Institute of Florence. We reviewed 240 cases treated by the AO compression plating technique. The results were entirely satisfactory.
