Abstract
We retrospectively reviewed 207 patients suffering from traumatic bone defe ct who had been treated at our institution between 1973 and 1993. Three typ es of traumatic bone defects were identified: I, minor; II, major cortical; III, major articular. Each type was further subdivided into: A, open injur y; B, closed injury. The proposed treatment modality of each type was inclu ded within each classification. Types II and III posed the greatest difficu lties in management. However, massive bone allografts can be successfully u sed in these situations, even in the early phases of treatment, but only gi ven specific prerequisites.
