Various methods of percutaneous fixation of tibial plateau fractures are available. The optimal method of fixation is dictated by soft tissue injury, fracture characteristics, and functional demands of the patient. Unicondylar fractures are amenable to percutaneous stabilization with screws or plates although some fractures are best approached with open techniques. Hybrid and ring external fixators are most appropriate for patients with bicondylar injuries who have severe soft tissue trauma… CONTINUE READING
