Table 3 Summary of studies on the correlation between the morphology of lateral plateau in TPFs and lateral meniscus injury

From: Correlation between CT images of lateral plateau and lateral meniscus injuries in patients with Schatzker II tibial plateau fractures:a retrospective study

Authors Number of patients Schatzker type The rate of lateral meniscus injury in TPFS Conclusions
Durakbasa et al. [7] 20 II 60.0% X-ray: collapse ≥14 mm, widening ≥10 mm, the positive rate of lateral meniscus injury was 100%.
Gardner et al. [8] 62 II 73.0% X-ray: collapse > 6 mm, widening > 5 mm, the positive rate of lateral meniscus injury was 83.0%.
Ringus et al. [9] 85 I-VI 28.6% Coronal CT: collapse > 10 mm, an 8-fold increase in the risk of lateral meniscus tear.
Chang et al. [10] 102 I-VI 63.6% Coronal CT: collapse > 6.3 mm, the positive rate of lateral meniscus injury was 75.5%.
Kolb et al. [11] 55 I-III 34.5% Coronal CT: per 1 mm widening, the positive rate of lateral meniscus injury increased by 40%.
Tang et al. [13] 132 I-VI 56.0% Coronal CT: collapse > 11 mm, the positive rate of lateral meniscus injury was 70.3%.
