What is a Tibial Plateau Fracture

What Is a Tibial Plateau Fracture?

A tibial plateau fracture is an injury that happens at the top of the shinbone. It might involve the cartilage surface of your knee joint. Since the tibial plateau is one of the most important load-bearing areas in the body, this condition would lead to many mobility problems. In most cases, this fracture might involve different parts around the knee, including the skin, tendons, muscles, ligaments, meniscus, and bone. Your tibia would crack slightly or be broken into many pieces, depending on the cause or your bone strength. [1]
