Abstract


Introduction : Tibia plateau fractures are complex intra-articular fractures which needs anatomical reduction and
absolutely stable fixation to achieve good results which is a challenge for Orthopeadic Surgeon.
Materials & method: A total of 28 patients with tibial plateau fractures (Schatzker type I-VI) were enrolled in the study
which done between november 2017 to october 2019.
Results : In our study about tibia plateau fractures in 28 patients which was managed with arthroscopic assisted internal
fixation with plating and with or without bone grafting . Intra operative findings showed lateral meniscal tear in 6 patients
medial meniscal tear in 1 patient . Clinical and radiological Rasmussen score was excellent in 75% of the patients.
Complications like infection in 3 patients , malunion in 2 patients, wound dehisence in 2 patients.
Conclusion: Arthroscopic assisted tibial plateau fixation is a preferred treatment for tibial plateau fracture because
arthroscopy gives a precise visualization of pathology in the knee joint which can be meticulously addressed which
gives early mobility and excellent range of movements.
