The general aim of early fracture management is to control hemorrhage, provide pain relief, prevent ischemia-reperfusion injury and remove potential sources of contamination (foreign body and nonviable tissues). Once these are accomplished, the fracture should be reduced and the reduction should be maintained, which will optimize the conditions for fracture union and minimize potential complications.

The goal in managing fractures is to ensure that the involved limb segment when healed, has returned to its best possible function. In this surgery type of implants to bused depends on the complexity of the fractures.
