Abstract: 

Introduction: Tibial plateau fractures may occur together with meniscal and ligamentous injuries to the knee. Although certain injury patterns may suggest a predominantly osseous injury to the knee, others may suggest significant soft-tissue injury.

Aims and Objectives: To Study of Tibial Plateau Fracture According to Associated Injury and Its outcome.

Methodology: This is institutional based prospective study which comprises of 50 patients with displaced tibial plateau fracture and were treated between Jan 2012 to Jun 2013 with minimal invasive percutaneous plate osteosynthesis (MIPPO). Statistical analysis done by Chi-square test.

Result: 12 (24%) patients had associated injuries whereas 38 (76%) patients had no other associated injuries. Fracture patella was most commonly associated injury. The association between associated injury and result is statistically non-significant (P>0.05). Only 16.66% of patients having associated injury had excellent results as compare to 55% in patients without associated injuries.

Conclusion: 24% patients had associated injuries and associated injuries seems to be not related with outcome of the injuries as association between associated injury and Outcome is statistically non-significant.
