Abstract

Minimally invasive surgery techniques such as indirect arthroscopic assisted reduction of Periarticular fractures have gained popularity over the recent years and produced good results. The ultimate goal of the intra-articular fracture treatment should be the precise restoration of the joint surface and rigid fixation to allow immediate postoperative non–weight-bearing exercises. The treatment of tibial plateau fractures with arthroscopic assisted osteosynthesis is a novel method that is associated with lower morbidity, less extensive surgical dissection. Arthroscopic assisted reduction and fixation is reliable, safe, attractive and excellent option in the treatment of properly selected tibial plateau fractures.
