Abstract:

<strong><em>Background: </em></strong><em>Fractures that involve the proximal tibia affect knee function and stability. The present study was conducted to assess effectiveness of the different surgical modalities of treatment of tibial plateau fractures and their functional outcomes.</em> <strong><em>Materials &amp; Methods: </em></strong><em>84 patients of tibial plateau fractures of both genders were divided into 2 groups of 42 each. Group I patients were treated with cannulated cancellous screws in which two/more transverse cancellous screws were used and group II patients were treated with locking compression plate. </em> <strong><em>Results: </em></strong><em>Group I had 30 males and 12 females and group II had 26 males and 16 females. Outcome found to be excellent in 28 in group I and 20 in group II, good in 10 in group I and 14 in group II and fair in 4 in group I and 8 in group II. The difference was significant (P&lt; 0.05).</em> <strong><em>Conclusion: </em></strong><em>Both cannulated cancellous screws and locking compression plate were found to be equally effective in management of tibial plateau fractures</em>
