Proximal Tibia Fracture
Description Background: Modern locking plating systems, providing increased angular stability, low implant profile, improved design matching the periarticular bone surface, as well as compatible with the minimal invasive techniques. Thus we performed this prospective study to evaluate the functional and radiological outcome of management of tibial plateau fractures using locking compression plate.
Material & Methods: 30 patients of tibial plateau fractures were surgically managed using locking compression plate and were evaluated by Rasmussen criteria, clinically and radiological for union.
Results: Average age was 46.13 years and average fracture union time was 13.62 weeks. All patients had excellent (53.3%) to good (46.7%) results with none of the patients having poor or fair results. Average Rasmussen Clinical Score was 27.56. Three and one patients had articular depression and increased condylar width respectively, but both the depression and increase in width was less than 5 mm.
Conclusion: Locking plate in treatment of tibial plateau fractures ensures stable fixation with maintained reduction, thereby providing early rehabilitation and good functional outcome however, injury severity continues to represent the decisive predictor for outcome.
