We studied the epidemiological features of tibial shaft fractures during two 5-year periods, 1971-75 and 1986-90, in the county of Uppsala, Sweden.
The incidence was higher in men than in women during both periods.
In men aged 10-19 years, the fracture incidence was lower during the second period, with a reduction of fractures sustained in road traffic accidents.
In women above 80 years, the fracture incidence was higher during the second period.
