Insufficiency fractures are seen when physiological stress given to pathological bone and needs to be differentiated from fatigue fracture. Management of these stress fractures depends on etiology, location and radiographic findings. Surgeon should address both biology and stability for satisfactory outcome.
A 54-year-old postmenopausal woman, presented with knee pain diagnosed with tibial meta-diaphyseal insufficiency fracture, treated conservatively with cast, but lost to follow up, subsequently she developed malalignment for which she underwent open reduction deformity correction and fixation elsewhere with an anterolateral plate. Later she presented to us with deformity, broken plate and non-union. Dual plating with bone grafting was done to achieve desired outcome.
Conclusion: An osteoporotic Insufficiency fracture if not appropriately evaluated and treated may end up in problems. So addressing both biology and stability is key.
