PURPOSE To assess results of small wire external fixation using a ligamentotaxis technique for high-energy tibial plateau fractures. METHODS Between April 2002 and May 2004, 38 consecutive patients aged 21 to 60 (mean, 32) years underwent small wire external fixation for high-energy tibial plateau fractures. 15 involved the right and 23 the left knee. 34 were closed and 4 were open injuries. Fractures were classified according to Schatzker's staging system. After a minimal of 2 years' follow… CONTINUE READING
