What is Tibial Plateau Fractures?

A tibial plateau fracture is a break of the tibia (shin bone) just below the knee joint. The tibial plateau is located at the top of the shin bone, and is a wide articular surface critical for weight bearing. A fracture of the tibial plateau is relatively common and typically occurs following significant injury such as fall from a height, a sports related injury or from a motor vehicle accident. However they can also be caused by repetitive microtrauma or as a result of a bone weakening disorder (eg. osteoporosis and bone cancer).

Symptoms of tibial plateau fractures include pain made worse by weight bearing, swelling around the knee, an inability to straighten the knee, a pale and/or cold foot as well as possible numbness, or pins and needles into the foot.
