Purpose: Open fractures are orthopaedic urgencies that present unique challenges to the treating surgeon. These injuries require timely treatment with antibiotics and debridement. Additionally, they require the evaluation of soft tissue compromise in order to assess the need for complex closure or soft tissue flap coverage. This soft tissue disruption can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. Tibial plateau fractures are associated with soft tissue disruption even in closed fracture patterns. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of open tibial plateau fractures with closed tibial plateau fractures. Methods: This study was an analysis of a consecutive series of tibial plateau fracture patients treated by one of three orthopaedic traumatologists over a 12-year period at a major academic medical center. There were 373 patients with complete follow up at a minimum of 1 year. Patient data was collected prospectively and included demographics, injury information, and functional outcomes as measured by the Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment (SMFA) score. Linear regression and binary logistic regression were completed using IBM SPSS (Armonk, NY), comparing patient outcomes between those with an open tibial plateau fracture to those that were closed. Results: Of the 373 patients with 376 tibial plateau fractures, 3.5% were open fractures. At final follow up, at a mean of 11 months (mode of 12 months), open plateau fracture patients had significantly worse bothersome, mobility, functional, and standardized total SMFA scores than their closed fracture counterparts, after controlling for sex, age at injury, Body Mass Index (BMI), and Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) (p=0.012, p=0.007, p=0.001, p=0.011). Infection was more frequent in the open fracture group with open plateau fractures have 136 times the odds of infection as compared to closed fracture patients (p

Performing well and learning effectively during your clinical rotations in orthopaedic surgery are challenges you face everyday, and that are equally important in caring for patients and earning the grade.

Features case studies with appropriate images in each chapter to illustrate the types of clinical scenarios you may experience. Gives you the necessary details you need to understand all aspects of each procedure. Includes the surgical indications and relative contraindications to specific procedures, giving you the big picture principles for each procedure. Discusses standard post-operative protocols and patient rehabilitation that extends your knowledge outside the OR.

Uses call-out boxes throughout every chapter that emphasize pertinent anatomy and surgical cautions, and reflect common questions that the attending may ask you or that you may want to ask your attending in the OR. Presents a consistent chapter organization, including bulleted lists and treatment algorithms that make reference a snap.
