  Background & Aim: Tibial plateau fractures are among the most important fractures which involve knee, as one of the most important weight-bearing articulates, whose injuries may lead to major functional disorders.

  Patients and Method : This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed on 54 patients with tibial plateau fractures who were referred to Hazrat Rasool-e-Akram Hospital between 2001 and 2006.It was performed to evaluate the outcome of tibial plateau fractures treatment and compare the results obtained by visual analogue scale & Lysholm knee score. Hospital documents of patients were used for data collection. To analyze the data, K.S test ,Kruskal-Wallis, and Chi-square tests were used.

  Results: The mean Lysholm score was 79.7 (± 12.3) . The minimum score was 48 in three patients and the maximum score was 94 in nine patients (16.7%). According to scores gained by patients, the result of treatment was excellent in 8 cases(14.8%), good in 19 (35.1%), fair in 17 (31.4%) and poor in 10 (18.6%). The mean VAS score was 2.77 (± 1.14).

Conclusion: According to the findings of the recent study and previous studies, it seems that the treatment of tibial plateau fractures is challenging. Proper and accurate pre-operative evaluations with proper anatomic reconstruction of the articular surfaces with stable fixation may lead to better functional outcomes.
