    I guess what we really need to know is if there is a complication (change in the fracture setting) or if it just isn't healing and therefore needs an ORIF. That could be the difference -58 and -78. I didn't see anything in the post about a complication or that the alignment has changed.

    True, I guess I have just been in ortho too long and pretty much assume (which I know I should not) that if they were seen a month ago and treated with fracture care and they come back and have an x-ray and the decision is made for an ORIF, chances are that there is some sort of complication involving a non-union, mal-union or re-displacement of the fracture.
