tibial plateau fracture

Yu Zhang, Lijun Song, Xiang Li, Jiahu Fang
PURPOSE: The authors have identified a subset of unicondylar tibial plateau depression fracture patterns caused by a flexion-valgus force. The purpose of this study was to describe this fracture pattern and suggest a modified lateral approach that may allow for improved reduction and stabilization. METHODS: The preoperative radiographs and CT scans of 102 patients who sustained unicondylar tibial plateau fractures (OTA 41B) were reviewed. Twenty-six fracture patients had posterolateral (PL) tibial plateau depression fractures...

OBJECTIVES:  The purpose of this study is to compare the load at failure and mode of failure between (1) tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO) and combined TPLO and tibial tuberosity transposition (TPLO-TTT) (Phase I) and (2) TPLO-TTT and tibial tuberosity transposition (TTT) (Phase II). METHODS:  Seven pairs of cadaveric tibiae were tested in each of the Phase I (TPLO vs. TPLO-TTT) and Phase II (TPLO-TTT vs. TTT) experiments.

INTRODUCTION: The use of a postoperative brace may be beneficial after open reduction and internal fixation of tibial plateau fractures. However, bracing has potential drawbacks related to cost, fitting, wound complications, and compliance. We hypothesized that no difference will be found between patients with and without bracing after open reduction and internal fixation of tibial plateau fractures. METHODS: In this prospective, comparative trial, patients were randomized to 6 weeks of bracing or no bracing after open reduction and internal fixation of tibial plateau fractures...

Osteochondral defects (OCD) are rare conditions that usually present in young adolescents. The causes include trauma, inflammation, ischaemia, genetics and changes at secondary ossification centres. The case report presents a 27-year-old man with chronic intermittent left knee pain for about 3 years. He typically develops the symptom after prolonged standing or when rising from a prolonged seated position. An initial MRI scan in 2014 did not identify and report an OCD that was present in his left lateral tibial plateau...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to describe the prevalence and associated factors of anterolateral ligament (ALL) injury in knee dislocation (KD). METHODS: A retrospective review of charts and radiological images was done for patients who underwent multiligamentous knee reconstruction surgery for KD in the authors' institution from May 2008 to December 2016. The inclusion criteria were both genders, skeletally mature, and first dislocation. Previous anterior cruciate ligament injury or surgery were the exclusion criteria...

RATIONALE: It is challenging to visualize and reduce a posterolateral tibial plateau fracture through an anterolateral approach as the tibial plateau fragments are often covered by the fibular head and ligamentous structures. PATIENT CONCERNS: In this case report, we describe a patient with a depression fracture of the posterolateral quadrant combined with a split fracture of the posteromedial quadrant and an avulsion fracture of the tibial intercondylar eminence...

BACKGROUND: The goal of this study was to compare the inter- and intra-observer reliabilities of computed tomography (CT) scans of bicondylar tibial plateau fractures (Bi-TPFs) with or without distraction with a bridging external fixation (EF) as interpreted by inexperienced surgeons. METHODS: Patients that underwent CT after distraction with a bridging EF were allocated to group 1 (n = 18), and patients that underwent CT before distraction with a bridging EF were allocated to group 2 (n = 18)...

High-energy tibial plateau fractures associated with severe soft tissue injury are difficult to manage. The risk of wound complications following open reduction and internal fixation is notably high owing to extensive soft tissue dissection. Alternatively, application of Ilizarov ring fixator minimizes soft tissue dissection and provides adequate fracture stabilization to allow early range of motion and correction of any mal-alignment. With this technique, soft tissue complications particularly surgical site infections are expected to be significantly reduced...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the risk factor of infection for complex tibial plateau fractures after operation. METHODS: Totally clinical data of 293 patients with complex tibial plateau fractures underwent open reduction and internal fixation were retrospectively analyzed from September 2010 to March 2015, including 199 males and 94 females, ranging in age from 17 to 80 years old with an average of 47.3 years old. The possible risk factors such as gender, age, smoking, diabetes, type of fracture(open/closed), classification of open fracture(Gustilo-Anderson classification), classification of soft tissue injury in closed fracture (Tscherne-Gotzen classification), fracture classification(Schatzker V/VI), osteofascial compartment syndrome, ASA score, anesthesia, timing of surgery, operative time(<=150 min/>150 min), surgical approach, combined approach or not, internal fixation site were studied...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze and compare the efficacy of surgical approaches and fixations of anterolateral approach, lateral approach and posterolateral approach in treating posterolateral tibial plateau fracture. METHODS: A retrospective study of 44 cases from May 2010 to July 2014 were enrolled, of which there were 21 males and 23 females, and the mean age was 42.5 years old (ranged, 26 to 61 years).

Schatzker introduced one of the most used classification systems for tibial plateau fractures, based on plain radiographs. Computed tomography brought to attention the importance of coronal plane-oriented fractures. The goal of our study was to determine if the addition of computed tomography would affect the decision making of surgeons who usually use the Schatzker classification to assess tibial plateau fractures. Image studies of 70 patients who sustained tibial plateau fractures were uploaded to a dedicated homepage...

INTRODUCTION: Classification systems such as the Schatzker and AO/OTA have been proposed for standardised assessment of tibial plateau fractures and to guide clinical decision making. However, there has been no comprehensive literature review of all classification systems for tibial plateau fractures, including assessment of their reliability. The aim of this systematic review was to identify and appraise previously established classification systems for tibial plateau fractures and determine their reliability for fracture classification...
