Objective: to evaluate the outcomes of various methods of surgical interventions and functional properties of lower extremities in patients with complicated ankle fractures. Material and Methods. Clinical outcomes of 140 surgically managed patients with unstable bimalleolar and trimalleolar fractures were studied. 80 patients were managed with external fixation devices applied by original method (main group) and 60 patients were managed with submersible structures (comparison group). Results. Compared to submersible structures, the use of transosseous metalosteosynthesis has led to 100% ankle fracture unions. In early postsurgery period the index of average anatomic and functional result reached values of 93.4% corresponding to "good" and 6.6% corresponding to "satisfactory". Conclusion. It has been established with rheovasography data that transosseous osteosynthesis contributed to restoration of blood microcir-culation in the damaged segment of lower extremity in 8 weeks period after surgery and submersible structures in 6 months period.

Objective is to detect bone mineral density along the shin according to «Esperanto» levels by Hounsfield's scale. Materials and methods. The analysis of density modification in 25 patients with pseudoarthrosis of tibia with predominant localization in a lower one-third of bone has been carried out. Results. By means of computed tomography it has been revealed that the bone tissue density of the tibia in the process of false joint union when using the compressive variant of combined transosseous osteosynthesis has changed according to the regularity reproducing phase character of the accumulation of mineral substances in the bone. Conclution. The growth of mineral density of the bone tissue during treatment spreads in the directions from proximal and distal metaepiphyses to the zone of pseudoarthrosis knitting
