Abstract

Fractures of the proximal tibial epiphysis and apophysis are rare. Data of ten patients seen in the last 17 yr with an epiphyseal (6) or apophyseal (4) fracture of the proximal tibia were reviewed. Three patients with an epiphyseal fracture were treated by open reduction and fixation, the other three by closed reduction. All apophyseal fractures were treated by open reduction and internal fixation. No major complications occurred. The final results were good.
