Background:Bicondylar tibia plateau fractures are difficult to manage due to complexities of comminuation of articular surfaces, extensive soft tissue injuries, infection and risk of compartment syndrome associated with it. Various modalities including cast, traction or open reduction and internal fixation using single to dual plate fixation technique are now days used. We report our results of single lateral locked plate in management of these complex Schatzker V and VI tibial plateau fracture…

To study outcomes in patients with schatzker type V and VI tibial plateau fracture treated with single 4.5mm lateral locking compression plate

Surgical treatment of bicondylar tibial plateau fractures with the single lateral locking compression plate that was evaluated in this study can lead to a good functional and radiological outcome and is considered an effective system for providing fracture stabilization provided that the correct surgical technique is used.

Evaluation of results of surgical management of lateral tibial condyle fractures using locking compression plate

Locking plates are good option for lateral tibial condyle fractures with minimum complications and Anatomical reduction can be easily maintained with locking plates, which also helps in early mobilization and hence obtaining good functional outcome in tibia condylar fractures.

Treatment of Complex Proximal Tibial Fractures (Types V & VI of Schautzker Classification) by Double Plate Fixation with Single Anterior Incision

The double plate fixation with single anterior incision is the best, effective and simple procedure in treatment of complex proximal tibial fractures (Types V and VI of Schautzker classification).

Operative results of closed tibial plateau fractures

Anatomic reduction and rigid internal fixation followed by early knee motion and partial weight bearing during bone healing are the cornerstones in the treatment of tibial plateau fractures.

Treatment of bicondylar tibia plateau fractures using locked plating versus external fixation.

Comparing the outcomes of open reduction and locked plating vs fine-wire external fixation of 58 consecutive bicondylar tibial plateau fractures at a level I trauma center found Locked plating was associated with a decreased time to union and decreased incidence of articular malunion.

Less Invasive Stabilization of Complex Tibial Plateau Fractures: A Biomechanical Evaluation of a Unilateral Locked Screw Plate and Double Plating

Both fixation techniques have a high resistance to vertical subsidence even with loads exceeding the average body weight and no statistically significant difference was seen between the two methods of fixation.

[Treatment of complicated proximal segmental tibia fractures with the less invasive stabilization locking plate system].

Tibia-LISS is a suitable implant for the treatment of proximal segmental tibia fractures with an acceptable rate of complications, and no patient suffered from secondary loss of reduction but 11 patients suffered from a complicated healing process.

Results of polyaxial locked-plate fixation of periarticular fractures of the knee. Surgical technique.

The variable-axis locking plates performed well, with a high rate of fracture union and no evidence of varus collapse due to failure of the polyaxial screw fixation, in a series of complex fractures about the knee.

Treatment of Complex Proximal Tibia Fractures With the Less Invasive Skeletal Stabilization System

The LISS internal fixator system can be used successfully to treat complex proximal tibia fractures without the need for additional medial stabilization and surgeons attempting to use fixed angle internal fixation plating systems should familiarize themselves with the significant technical differences between these and traditional plating Systems to assure satisfactory results.
