OBJECTIVE We determined the most common patterns of triplane fractures and assessed the risk of epiphyseal separation in each pattern. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-one children with tibial triplane fractures underwent CT, and the resultant scans underwent multiplanar reconstruction. We categorized epiphyseal and physeal involvement, the number of fragments, the appearance of the Salter-Harris fracture in each plane, and the degree of separation of the epiphyseal fragments. RESULTS The… CONTINUE READING
