Broke tibia horizonally not vertically

My husband, poor guy, fell down the porch steps wet after the rain. Urgent care x-rayed then referred him to a surgeon who willl put pins in it. That is an approx 10in, just guessing, vertical break I'm wondering are pins more difficult to place than had it been a vertical break? Also, please, what do you think is the prognosis? Thanks so much for your reply.
