Morphologic Variants of Posterolateral Tibial Plateau Impaction Fractures in the Setting of Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear


Abstract

Impaction fractures of the posterolateral tibial plateau commonly occur in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, with considerable variability found in fracture size and morphologic features.  The primary objective was to characterize different morphologic variants of posterolateral tibial plateau impaction fractures. The secondary objective was to investigate the association between these impaction […]
