Soft Part Management for Surgical Fractures of the Lower Limb

Brief description of study

The assessment consists in comparing corticoids injection versus placebo in surgery of lower limb fractures The aim of study is to assess (state cutaneous, efficacy, safety) corticoids injection on a prospective, randomized analysis

Detailed Study Description

One of the major problems of below-knee fractures is edema (delaying surgery time and post-operative complications for healing).

The effect corticosteroids (anti-edema and anti-inflammatory) is used in neurosurgery and maxillofacial surgery.

So, it seemed judicious to evaluate the effectiveness of corticosteroids in bolus preoperatively in order to limit the importance of the edema before intervention to prevent adverse effect of the edema on the cicatrization.

This study will aim to confirm this indication or not on the contrary to change current practices.
