Introduction The traditional methods in displaced tibial plateau fractures use metallic instrumentation. âBalloon-tibioplastyâ is a novel minimally invasive technique. Purpose Use of the balloon-tibioplasty show an improvement of the reduction compared to traditional methods. Patients and methods We enrolled 28 patients who presented with a depression fracture of external tibial plateau divided into two treatment groups: balloon-tibioplasty (group I) and âtraditionalâ reduction technique (group II). Results Balloon-tibioplasty is a minimally invasive treatment for tibial plateau fracture. Discussion Balloon-tibioplasty appears to have several advantages over traditional reduction techniques. Conclusion Balloon-tibioplasty represents an improved and accurate modality for restoration of articular congruence.
