Abstract

In managing complex proximal tibia fractures, several options are available to the treating surgeon. Closed management with or without external fixation, formal open reduction and internal fixation, and intramedullary nail fixation have been described in the literature. There is a lack of consensus regarding the optimal treatment method for complex bicondylar patterns or proximal metadiaphyseal fractures with or without involvement of the articular surface. It is helpful to review the standard and alternative surgical approaches to bicondylar tibial plateau fractures and to be aware of the intramedullary nail as an alternative approach for complex proximal metadiaphyseal patterns.
