Our study 2018 Periprosthetic tibial fractures in total knee arthroplasty –an outcome analysis of a challenging and underreported surgical issue 9 Soft tissue management, correct alignment and minimal invasive procedures are important for the outcome of old and osteoporotic patients associated with a high complication rate
Kim et al 2016 Successful outcome with minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis for periprosthetic tibial fracture after total knee arthroplasty. 16 Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis with locking plates can achieve satisfactory results regarding union, alignment, range of motion and functional outcome
Seeger et al 2013 Treatment of periprosthetic tibial plateau fractures in unicompartimental knee arthroplasty: plates versus cannulated screws. 12 Biomechanical analysis of matched fresh frozen tibiae demonstrating that angle stable plates show significantly higher fracture loads than fixation with cannulated screws and should be preferred
Tabutin et al 2007 Tibial diaphysis fractures below a total knee prosthesis 6 Successful results with intramedullary nailing in osteoporotic bone stock regarding bone healing and knee function
Thompson et al 2001 Periprosthetic tibial fractures after cementless low contact stress total knee arthroplasty. 7 Correct alignment and possible cement fixation regarding tibial component insertion is important in primary TKA as malalignment and osteopenia are risk factors for periprosthetic fractures
