HIRSCH S, Michael; FLORES A, Fabiola; ARDILES C, Oscar  and  RIOS Q, Daniel. Understanding triplane distal tibia fractures. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.3, pp.114-120. ISSN 0717-9308.

Abstract. Triplane fractures (TF) are a special type of fracture that typically occur in the distal tibia, in a specific age group, and require specific treatment. It should be diagnosed early to avoid complications and irreparable consequences. Imaging techniques play a fundamental role. A review of TF is performed, and cases are presented in order to understand how they occur, and thus diagnose them properly.
