How to perform minimally invasive tibial cortex transverse transport surgery for diabetic foot ulcer management
Refereed conference paper presented and published in conference proceedings


摘要Introduction: Diabetic foot ulcer is a severe complication of diabetes mellitus, which is associated with high mortality and high cost. The tibial cortex transverse transport (TTT) surgery has been reported for the treatment of severe diabetic foot ulcers with satisfactory clinical outcomes. TTT surgery can effectively regenerate the microvascular network in the lower limbs of these patients to promote ulcer healing and increase the chance of limb salvage.
Materials and Methods: In this report, the authors provide a technical guide to perform minimally invasive TTT surgery through the use of a specially designed external fixation frame and tibial corticotomy guide plate.
Results: This minimally invasive technique utilises smaller skin incisions and preserves the local blood supply. Our minimally invasive TTT surgery technique is simple, significantly increased the efficacy and reduced the complications of TTT surgery.
Discussion and Conclusion: In this detailed report the authors proved a step-by-step guide on how to perform minimally invasive transverse tibial transport surgery. The use of specially designed external fixator and corticotomy guide plate is the key for a reproducible and successful TTT surgery.
