Relatively few studies have addressed surgical strategy for complex proximal tibial fractures by now. The purpose of this study was to assess the results of a single lateral locking plate using minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) for proximal tibia fractures (AO/OTA type 41-C) with diaphyseal involvement. From Jun 2009 to Jun 2014, 20 patients (fifteen women and five men, mean age 35.8 years) were managed for proximal tibial fractures which extend into the diaphyseal region of the… CONTINUE READING
