The specific fracture pattern of these unusual intra-articular lesions of the distal tibia, which are combinations of Salter- Harris types II, III, and IV, is characterized by fracture lines which extend into three anatomic planes. More specifically the sagittal fracture extends through the epiphysis, whilst the coronal component occurs through the posterior tibial metaphysis, and the transverse fracture imperils the growth plate [2,7]. Given their complexity, the exact fracture pattern of… Expand

Growth plate fractures of the distal tibia: is CT imaging necessary?
TLDR
The CR of distal tibial growth plate fractures showed a low overall accuracy for articular surface dehiscence, articular ridge formation and subluxation as compared to CT thus emphasising the necessity of using CT in selected patients. Expand
Osteosynthesis of a triplane fracture under arthroscopic control in a bilateral case
TLDR
An exceptional bilateral case occurring after a trampoline accident of a displaced articular and an extra-articular fracture is described, allowing surgery to be less invasive in young patients, while decreasing the risk of malunion and poor long-term clinical results. Expand
Pediatric Physeal Ankle Fracture
TLDR
The Salter‐Harris classification is the most widely used system to determine appropriate management and assess long‐term prognosis, with the intent of maintaining optimum function while limiting the risk of physeal damage and joint incongruity. Expand
The role of CT in diagnosis and treatment of distal tibial fractures with intra-articular involvement in children.
TLDR
It is indicated that patients with transitional distal tibial fractures as well as patients with displaced SH III and IV fractures must undergo CT examination in order to make accurate diagnosis and select the appropriate treatment. Expand

TLDR
A 14-year-old boy with a triplane fracture of the distal tibia with 5-mm displacement of the articular surface was treated using a cannulated cancellous screw while viewing the fracture site via an arthroscope, and the patient was able to walk without discomfort. Expand

TLDR
Arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation (ARIF) of two-part triplane fractures provides the advantages of complete evacuation of fracture hemarthrosis, accurate and certain reduction of the articular surface, and secure fixation of fracture fragments. Expand
Triplane fractures of the distal tibia requiring open reduction and internal fixation. Pre-operative planning using computed tomography.
TLDR
Computed tomography of triplane fractures provides useful information not available on conventional radiographs when undertaking pre-operative planning, according to a postal survey of surgeons. Expand
Treatment Outcomes of Triplane and Tillaux Fractures of the Ankle in Adolescence
TLDR
Precisely detecting the fracture configuration by computed tomography and understanding the injury mechanism have greatly improved the outcomes of triplane fractures and Tillaux fractures of the ankle in adolescent patients. Expand
Triplane Fractures of the Distal Tibia in Children
TLDR
Treatment outcome of triplane fractures of the distal tibia in children is good when guidelines are closely adhered to, and all patients had excellent outcome. Expand
Triplane distal tibial epiphyseal fracture.
TLDR
Good results have been obtained by closed methods, but there is more than 2 mm of joint incongruity after reduction, open reduction and internal fixation are indicated, and premature closure of the epiphyseal plate resulted. Expand
