Fractured Patella Knee Brace
Read More >
A tibial plateau fracture is a high-energy injury of the knee. Tibial plateau fracture treatment sometimes requires surgery but can be managed conservatively without surgery if the fracture is undisplaced and stable. In both cases, a knee brace will be used to protect and support the knee throughout the time it takes to heal.
The tibial plateau can fracture in different ways and there is a classification system of 6 types of fracture, as seen in the image below. Treatment depends on the type of fracture, and the individual’s health and fitness. In some instances, it will be best for the knee to be placed in a plaster cast in a fixed position for a number of weeks. When this is removed it is common practice for a hinged brace to be used.
