A prospective study of surgical management of proximal tibia and distal tibia fracture treated with locking compression plate

Author(s): Siddarth Mahesh and Prabhakar Venkataramana
Abstract: Background: This new system has been regarded as technically mature. It offers numerous fixation possibilities and has proven its worth in complex fracture situations and in revision operations after the failure of other implants.
Methods: The present study includes a total of 25 cases of which 20 are of proximal tibia and 5 of distal tibia fracture treated using Locking compression plate & evaluated using Rasmussen S Functional Grading System.
Results: The present study consited total of 25 cases of which 20 are of proximal tibia and 5 of distal tibia fracture. 15 of them were treated by MIPPO technique and 10 by open reduction and internal fixation using Locking compression plate. The study period was from June 2014 to June 2016.
Conclusion: Proper understanding of the biomechanics of the LCP and the general principles guiding its application is essential before actually venturing into its clinical use. The change in the thinking is needed to accept the principles of biologic fixation
