soft

Flexible and changeable, as in "software," which can be reprogrammed for different results. The computer's soft nature is its greatest virtue; however, the reason it takes so long to get new systems developed in an enterprise has little to do with the concept. It is based on which software tools are used to create the systems and the skill level of the technical staff, compounded by the organization's bureaucracy.

Regarding optimizing the timing of definitive treatment, in the authors' opinion, a staged approach utilizing knee-spanning external fixators with ligamentotaxis to restore alignment and offer the environment for soft-tissue recovery, followed by definitive osteosynthesis with positive wrinkle sign, is strongly recommended for high energy-induced complicated tibial plateau fractures with compromised soft tissues, which has been proven safer and more reliable.[4] For low energy-induced lateral column fractures (Schatzker I-III), the decision should be made based on the status of the soft-tissue envelope, the patient's expectations, the surgeon's experience, availability of equipment and implants, etc.
