BACKGROUND: There is no consensus regarding the use of filling agent in the re-elevation of depressed tibial plateau fracture (TPF). Although autograft is considered as the gold standard approach of such reconstructions, its limitation has led to a recent attraction toward allograft substitution. In this study, we compare the complications and outcome of autograft and allograft in TPF reconstruction, in order to address the existing controversy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 81 patients with acute TPF were included in this study...

: There is a lively debate about the existence, origins and discoverer of the anterolateral ligament of the knee. The complex anatomy of the lateral aspect of the knee has made it difficult to differentiate between various structures such as the iliotibial band, capsulo-osseous layer, Kaplan's fibres and the anterolateral capsule. The "discovery" of a new anterolateral structure in 2013 was the culmination of many historical studies. In 1879, Paul Ferdinand Segond described a tibial plateau fracture in which he noted a pearly band reinforcing the joint capsule...

Tibial plateau fractures are a heterogeneous group of lesions with multiple fracture patterns. They are often associated with soft tissue injuries, the lateral meniscus and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) being the most common structures affected. The purpose of this article is to present a case series of an often missed unusual injury pattern that consists on the association of a large anteromedial tibial plateau fracture with a posterolateral (PL) knee corner injury without involvement of the cruciate ligaments...

Partial or total resection of the infrapatellar fat pad (IPFP) helps surgeon improve access to lateral tibial plateau for better placement of the knee prosthesis. We aimed to investigate the effect of IPFP excision on clinical and radiologic outcomes including patellar tendon length (PTL), range of motion, and functional scores after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) at 5-year follow-up. We retrospectively evaluated postoperative first X-rays (day 0) and postoperative final 5-year control views of 228 knees in patients with primary osteoarthritis who underwent TKA between September 2006 and December 2009 in our hospital...

High-energy fractures of the proximal tibia with extensive fragmentation of the posterior rim of the tibial plateau are challenging. This technique aims to describe a method on how to embrace the posterior rim of the tibial plateau by placing a horizontal precontoured one-third tubular plate wrapped around its corners. This method, which we named "hoop plating," is mainly indicated for cases of crushed juxta-articular rim fractures, aiming to restore cortical containment of the tibial plateau. Through a lateral approach with a fibular head osteotomy (Lobenhoffer approach), both anterolateral and posterolateral fragments are directly reduced and supported by a one-third tubular plate of adequate length...

The aim of this study is to describe the morphology of the posteromedial fragment in the setting of bicondylar tibial plateau fractures and to use it as a base for selection of the method of fixation. Twenty two -patients with bicondylar tibial plateau fractures -involving the posteromedial fragment were included in this study. Plain X- ray and computed tomogram (CT) were performed in all patients. Thirteen patients were treated by dual plating while nine were treated by single lateral plate. The mean posteromedial fragment height was 39 mm...

OBJECTIVE: To re-evaluate the Segond fragment emphasizing those structures that attach to the fragment in patients with reported acute/subacute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, and to clarify the nomenclature used to describe these structures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A search of databases of knee MR examinations over 4.5 years with reported ACL tears yielded 19,726 studies. Using strict exclusion criteria, a total of 146 MR studies with acute/subacute ACL tears were re-assessed with respect to the Segond fragment's size, shape, orientation, location, displacement, attaching soft tissue structures, and associated osseous and/or soft tissue injuries...

BACKGROUND: Tibial plateau fractures can be successfully fixed utilizing 3.5 mm locking plates. However, there are some disadvantages to using these plates. OBJECTIVES: In the current prospective study, we investigated the outcome of treating different types of tibial plateau fractures with 3.5 mm simple plates which, to our knowledge, has not been evaluated in previous studies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2011 and 2013, 32 patients aged 40 ± 0...

BACKGROUND: Currently existing classifications of tibial plateau fractures do not help to guide surgical strategy. Recently, a segment-based mapping of the tibial plateau has been introduced in order to address fractures with a fracture-specific surgical approach. The goal of the present study was to analyze incidence and fracture specifics according to a new 10-segment classification of the tibial plateau. METHODS: A total of 242 patients with 246 affected knees were included (124 females, 118 males, mean age 51...

BACKGROUND: Post-traumatic stiffness after open reduction and internal fixation of fractures about the knee can have dramatic effects on function. Traditionally, open quadricepsplasty has been the treatment of choice, but is associated with significant morbidity. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to examine the immediate and sustainable range of motion (ROM) changes after surgical arthroscopic lysis of knee adhesions (SALKA) for post-traumatic knee stiffness after open reduction internal fixation (ORIF)...

BACKGROUND: Tibial plateau fractures are of great challenge to treat with open reduction and internal fixation, because fractures vary from simple to complex, with little or extensive articular involvement. Hence, recognition and comprehension of the fracture features will help orthopedic surgeons understand the injury mechanism better and manage these fractures by planning optimal surgical procedures. This study aimed to evaluate the morphological characteristics of tibial plateau fractures based on the Schatzker classification...

Tibial plateau fractures are common in the elderly population following a low-energy mechanism. Initial evaluation includes an assessment of the soft tissues and surrounding ligaments. Most fractures involve articular depression leading to joint incongruity. Treatment of these fractures may be complicated by osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and medical comorbidities. Optimal reconstruction should restore the mechanical axis, provide a stable construct for mobilization, and reestablish articular congruity. This is accomplished through a variety of internal or external fixation techniques or with acute arthroplasty...
