Abstract

Infective nonunion is a common complication of open tibial fractures. High level of morbidity is associated with this condition. However, there are significant variations in the treatment protocols in previous literature. This paper is a literature study and attempts to provide insights into the classification, diagnostic modalities and various treatment options. We have also identified shortcomings of the existing literature and scope for further research in this field.
