|Table of Content||Chapter 1: Anatomy: will describe the relevant anatomy of the tibial plateau including bony, ligamentous, and muscular anatomy with pictures and descriptions with commonly used surgical approaches for fixation.
Chapter 2: Mechanism, Evaluation, and Temporary Treatments: this chapter will describe the demographic data for these fractures, give detailed information on the evaluation from history taking to physical exam, to radiographic evaluation and how to decide what imaging to obtain. Additionally, initial emergency department management and temporary splinting vs external fixation will be discussed.
Chapter 3: Nonsurgical Treatment: Indications for nonsurgical treatment and detailed evidence based descriptions on how to perform nonsurgical treatment.
Chapter 4: External Fixation: Indications and techniques for both temporary and definitive external fixation of tibial plateau fractures
Chapter 5: Open Reduction and Internal Fixation: Indications and techniques for open treatment of tibial plateau fractures
Chapter 6: Treatment of Associated Soft Tissue Injuries: Indications and techniques for soft tissue repair/reconstruction associated with tibial plateau fractures
Chapter 7: Postoperative Care/Rehabilitation: postoperative care including wound care, weight bearing, exercises, rehabilitation for a wide spectrum of tibial plateau injuries
Chapter 8: Complications: common complications associated with tibial plateau fractures (such as compartment syndrome, wound healing issues, post-traumatic arthritis, etc) and methods of treating these complications
