Worse functional, clinical outcomes found in patients with tibial plateau fractures with tibial eminence

Worse functional, clinical outcomes found in patients with tibial plateau fractures with tibial eminence
July 28, 2017

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.

San jit R . 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.
