Objective: To explore the availability and curative effect of the reconstruction through Fibula Transplanta- tion with Vascular (FTV) in the cases of complicated severe comminuted tibia fracture and bone defects. Methods: 48 cases of complicated severe comminuted tibia fracture and bone defects were repaired by homopleural FTV transplanta- tion and contralateral free FTV transplantation. All cases were treated by primary operations. Results: The follow-up ranged from 2 to 3 years. Excellent results were obtained in 35 cases, good in 10, fair in 2, and poor in 1 case. Conclu- sions: To treat complicated severe comminuted tibia fracture and bone defects, the primary FTV should be attached great importance to. There are positive availabilities in the reconstructions of tibia bone defects with primary FTV. But the time of bone union was rather longer.
