This prospective interventional study was conducted in the Department of Orthopaedics ,Jalalabad Ragib Rabeya Medical college Hospital and other Private Hospital in Sylhet during Janurary 2019 to December 2020 with a view to evaluate the outcome of Minimally invasive osteosynthesis of Distal Tibial fractures using anterolateral locking plate of distal tibial fracture. For this purpose 21 patients with fracture distal third of tibia were selected. The mean age of the patients was 43.9(SD8.8) years, 12 (57.1%) male and 9 ( 42.9% ) female with a ratio of 4:3.Total operation time was71.1(SD6.1) minutes and time of union was 15.5(SD2.81) . weeks. Functional outcome was excellent ( 66.7% ), good (14.3% ), fair(9.5%) and poor( 9.5% ).The final outcome was satisfactory in 80.9% and unsatisfactory in 19.1% of patients. so, Minimally invasive osteosynthesis of distal tibial fractures using anterolateral locking plate is an effective surgical option for achieving satisfactory and functional outcome.
