Knee Arthroscopy and Tibial Plateau Fractures

- Pp. 65-76 (12)

Alessandro Aprato, Matheus Azi, Matteo Giachino and Alessandro Massè


Arthroscopic-assisted fluoroscopic treatment of tibial plateau fractures has gained popularity in the last decade and is now indicated as one of the treatments of choice in Schatzker types 1, 2 and 3 fractures; it ensures optimal reduction and a stable fixation with plate or cannulated screws may be performed after reduction. In selected type 4 fractures arthroscopy may allow an evaluation of articular fracture reduction, thereby obviating the need for extensive arthrotomy. This chapter aims to review the technical points that are useful to the successful video-assisted management of tibial plateau fractures.
