Abstract: Tibial plateau fractures are intra-articular fractures of major weight bearing joint [1]. These fractures represent a wide spectrum of severity which ranges from simple injuries with predictably excellent outcome after nonperative treatment to complex fracture patterns that challenge even most experienced surgeons [2]. Among wide spectrum of operative management Dual plating via two incision is preferred technique as it has its own advantages when compared to other modalities of treatment such as Lateral locking plate, Hybrid external fixator, Ilizarov, LISS, External fixator with limited internal fixation. Hence this study is done to emphasise the importance of double plating in management of Scahtzker type V & VI fractures based on Honkonen Jarvinen criteria (1992) and reported the results.
