Abstract: Objective: This study focuses on short term outcome of bicondylar proximal tibia plating as a treatment of High energy tibia plateau fracture using Modified Rassmusen’s score.
Introduction: High energy tibial plateau fractures remain a challenge to the most experienced orthopaedic surgeons, with the bicondylar type (schatzker type V)and the comminuted type(schatzker type VI)fractures being the most difficult to treat. The goals of treatment include satisfactory restoration of mechanical alignment, anatomical reduction of articular surface and stable fixation that allows early range of motion of knee.
Methodology: A cohort of 30 patients with high energy tibia plateau fractures, treated with bicondylar proximal tibia plating between Jan 2016 to Dec 2017 were analyzed for minimum of 6 months and final result was analyzed using Modified Rasmussen’s score.
Results: 40% patients had excellent and 40% patients had good results. Assessment done using Modified Rassmusen’s score.
