Patients who had tibial plateau fractures with a tibial eminence component experienced worse knee range of motion up to 1 year following surgical treatment, as well as less rapid improvements in functional outcomes, compared with patients who did not have this component.
. Konda, MD, and colleagues categorized 293 patients who presented with a tibial plateau fracture into cohorts with a tibial eminence component and those without a tibial eminence component. Researchers evaluated and compared short musculoskeletal functional assessment (SMFA), VAS pain and knee range of motion (ROM) at 3 months, 6 months and 12 months postoperatively.
