"Bicondylar tibial plateau fractures are serious injuries to a major weight-bearing joint. These injuries are often associated with severe soft tissue injuries that complicate surgical management". "....fine-wire circular external fixation, combined with limited open reduction and cannulated screw fixation, consistently produces good functional results without serious complications."

The "anterior tibial condyle fracture" is "often missed on routine antero-posterior and lateral knee X-rays due to an overlap between the fracture and the normal bone"...

"The mean follow-up period was 2 ½ years. The mean postoperative knee flexion was 128°. All patients could walk, jump, and climb steps. 90% could squat, though only 50% could duck walk properly"

"Investigators have commented on numerous shortcomings of the Schatzker system. Because it was designed for classification based on AP radiographs, the system does not include injury patterns with major fracture lines in the coronal plane or those simply not visible on plain radiographs"

"patients with comminuted tibial plateau fractures requiring either two buttress plates or a single plate with additional interfragmentary lag screws would probably be better managed by either non-operative treatment or limited internal fixation."
