Nicole, a 14-year-old girl, was skiing when she fell and broke her left leg. As she fell, her left leg
caught under the body of another skier who ran into her. An X-ray revealed that the fracture was a
compound tibial fracture just below the knee, as well as a torn meniscus. She remained in the hospital for
2 weeks due to an infection in the area of the skin breakage. After being in a cast for 3 months it was
removed and she was allowed to start bearing weight on the leg. The bones eventually healed however i
it was revealed that the meniscus was still torn 6 months after her injury.
Will she be more or less likely to break the tibia in the same place again and why?
