Clinical observation on the treatment of ankle fracture with buttress plate and traditional internal fixation and its effect on GQOLI-74 score and Baird-Jackson score
Objective: To explore the curative effect of buttress plate and traditional internal fixation in the treatment of ankle fracture, so as to provide potential reference for the clinical treatment of this disease.
Methods: This is a clinical comparative study. The subjects of this study were one hundred patients with ankle fracture treated in Mindong Hospital Affiliated to Fujian Medical University from January 2019 to December 2021. Enrolled patients were randomly divided into the control group and the experimental group. Patients in the control group were treated with traditional internal fixation, and those in the experimental group were provided with buttress plate. Patients were compared in several aspects such as the comprehensive quality of life assessment questionnaire (GQOLI-74), Baird-Jackson score and postoperative complications.
Results: The experimental group showed improved Baird-Jackson score after treatment, significantly higher fracture healing rate than that of the control group three months after treatment. Besides, there was no significant difference in the complications between the two groups, with good prognosis after timely treatment.
Conclusion: Internal fixation with buttress plate has obvious advantages in the treatment of ankle fractures, which can effectively improve the quality of life and promote the rapid healing of fractures. It is worthy of clinical promotion and application.
