It is the purpose of this retrospective study to analyze factors capable of influencing clinical-functional and radiographic results, such as type of fracture, age of the patients, type of trauma, delay in treatment, associated lesions. A total of 33 fractures treated by open reduction and internal stabilization for fractures of the proximal tibia classified according to the AO were re-evaluated. Clinical and radiographic evaluation were obtained by assessing arthrosis, axis, and sinking of the tibial plateau. The clinical and functional results were satisfactory in 72.2\% of cases, and radiographic ones were satisfactory in 63.6\% for gonarthrosis, in 81.6\% for axis, and in 84.8\% for sinking. In conclusion, factors capable of influencing the results, such as type of fracture, age of the patient, and type of trauma, in addition to variables that the surgeon must monitor, such as reconstruction of the joint, alignment, synthesis, treatment of meniscal lesions, were observed.

Abstract

It is the purpose of this retrospective study to analyze factors capable of influencing clinical-functional and radiographic results, such as type of fracture, age of the patients, type of trauma, delay in treatment, associated lesions. A total of 33 fractures treated by open reduction and internal stabilization for fractures of the proximal tibia classified according to the AO were re-evaluated. Clinical and radiographic evaluation were obtained by assessing arthrosis, axis, and sinking of the tibial plateau. The clinical and functional results were satisfactory in 72.2\% of cases, and radiographic ones were satisfactory in 63.6\% for gonarthrosis, in 81.6\% for axis, and in 84.8\% for sinking. In conclusion, factors capable of influencing the results, such as type of fracture, age of the patient, and type of trauma, in addition to variables that the surgeon must monitor, such as reconstruction of the joint, alignment, synthesis, treatment of meniscal lesions, were observed.
