The purpose of this study was to determine how well laterally placed modern tibia locking plates used in the treatment of Schatzker V tibial plateau fractures would uphold the medial plateau during axial loading. Fifteen third generation Sawbone tibias were obtained and an osteotomy was cut beneath the medial plateau to recreate Schatzker V type plateau fractures. Three groups were created (n=5 per group). Each group was plated with either a Synthes 4.5-mm LCP proximal tibial plate, a Zimmer… CONTINUE READING
