Bicondylar tibial plateau fractures can be difficult to treat due to the extent of articular cartilage, metaphyseal bone, and soft tissue injury. The purpose of this study was to compare 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. All bicondylar tibial plateau fractures were classified as Schatzker V/VI or AO/OTA type 41C. Twenty-eight patients in one group were treated using a… CONTINUE READING
