Porous titanium granules are better than autograft bone as a bone void filler in lateral tibial plateau fractures: A randomised trial.

Abstract
A total of 20 patients with a depressed fracture of the lateral tibial plateau (Schatzker II or III) who would undergo open reduction and internal fixation were randomised to have the metaphyseal void in the bone filled with either porous titanium granules or autograft bone. Radiographs were undertaken within one week, after six weeks, three months, six months, and after 12 months. The primary outcome measure was recurrent depression of the joint surface: a secondary outcome was the duration of surgery. The risk of recurrent depression of the joint surface was lower (p < 0.001) and the operating time less (p < 0.002) when titanium granules were used. The indication is that it is therefore beneficial to use porous titanium granules... (More)

The indication is that it is therefore beneficial to use porous titanium granules than autograft bone to fill the void created by reducing a depressed fracture of the lateral tibial plateau. There is no donor site morbidity, the operating time is shorter and the risk of recurrent depression of the articular surface is less. Cite this article: Bone Joint J 2015; 97-B:836-41. (Less)
