Surgical Treatment of Tibial Plafond Fractures.
Intra-articular fractures of the tibial plafond are typically the result of rotational or axial loading forces, and both mechanisms of injuries can result in an associated fibula fracture. Rotational distal tibial plafond fractures are typically of lower energy and are associated with less articular injury and chondral impaction, whereas axial load injuries of the distal tibial plafond are associated with a higher incidence of intra-articular and soft tissue injury. The goal of this article is to review the mechanisms of injury, fracture patterns, and potential complications associated with the most common presentations of tibial plafond fractures.
