Abstract: The number of hospitalized patients of peri articular fractures knee joint have been reported to be 32-35% of total trauma patients. The armamentaria of internal fixation devices available for these type of fractures are supracondylar nail dynamic condylar screw, T-butress plates, Dyanamic compression plates, Fixed angle blade plate, Zicker nail, Enders nail, Locking compression plate (LCP). The purpose of this study was to determine whether fixation by LCP is an effective method in the management of periarticular fractures around the knee joint. The average age in the present study was 40.96 years (ranging from 21 to 80 years). 22 cases were male and 3 cases were female. The average time to union was 20.32 weeks (range from 14 to 32 weeks). Based on functional criteria we recorded excellent results in 15 cases (60%), good in eight cases (32%), fair result in two cases (8%) with no poor result Based on anatomical criteria we recorded excellent results in nine cases (36%), good in 16 cases (64%) with no fair and poor result. The chief complications are infection, varus collapse, knee stiffness, articular N and secondary osteoarthrosis
