October 2020; Foot & Ankle Orthopaedics 5(4):2473011420S0014; DOI: 10.1177/2473011420S00141 Axial CT image through the tibial shows a fracture through the lateral tibial plateau with slight diastasis between the fragments. Tibial Plafond Fracture is an uncommon fracture occurring in the distal region of the tibia. The tibial plafond, lateral malleolus, and medial malleolus form a mortise, a socket in which the talus sits (Figure 2). Tibial plafond Background Posterior pilon, which has drawn attention over re-cent years, is considered as a variant of posterior mal-leolar fracture [1–15]. Three of In together with the two signs, posterior pilon fracture is in highly suspicion. She sustained the isolated, closed injury shown in Figures A and B. These are considered to represent 1-10% of all lower limb fractures 6. An x-ray can show if there is an injury to your bones or if the joints in your ankle are out of place. Ankle - 'Pilon' fracture - AP. The cause of Tibial Plafond Fracture is axial or rotational forces occurring from motor vehicle accidents or falling from a height. The cross angle (α) was the angle between the bimalleolar axis and the major fracture line of the PMF on the image at the level of the tibial plafond. Fig. Introduction: Osteochondral lesions of the tibial plafond account for approximately 2.6% of osteochondral lesions in the ankle. The ankle is actually less susceptible to arthritis than the hip or knee. 1-5 Most studies that report outcomes after these fractures have assessed patients at a single point in time and report an average length of follow up. 1. Tested Concept, ORIF with standard plating of the tibia and fibula, ORIF with locked plating of the tibia and fibula, ORIF with standard plating of the tibia and fibula and immediate bone grafting of tibia defect, External fixation of the tibia, ORIF of the fibula with standard plating, and immediate bone grafting of tibia defect, (OBQ04.73) 15.1 Fibular ossicle in a 15-year-old boy. Open DICOM files . In a pilon fracture, the Chaput fragment typically maintains soft tissue attachment via which of the following structures? Guide wire tip should rest just above the tibial plafond, with bent area turned posteriorly. Very interesting case of a typical Osteochondritis Dissecans in the posterior tibial plafond. Preoperative radiographs of case 3. a-b The Arrow Head showing the “double contour” sign on AP view indicates the existence of PM fragment. 2. Emulating the technique used by Cole to configure tibial plafond fractures, we utilized the axial slice 0.3–0.5 mm below the medial articular surface . ... Another disadvantage might be the use of a fairly large medial distal tibial osteotomy that has to extend into the tibial plafond in order to be able to excise the entire defect. Tested Concept, Brake travel time is significantly increased until 6 weeks after patient begins weight bearing, Return of normal brake travel time takes longer after long bone fracture compared to articular fractures, Normal brake travel time correlates with improved short musculoskeletal functional assessment scores, Brake travel time is significantly reduced until 8 weeks after patient begins weight bearing, Brake travel time returns to normal when weight bearing begins, (OBQ08.182) He is initially treated with a spanning external fixator followed by definitive open reduction internal fixation of the tibia and fibula. CT image through the tibial plateau shows a fracture of the posterior aspect of the lateral tibial plateau, which is the source of the lipohemarthrosis. What is the most appropriate next step in management? A focal superiorly oriented notch at the medial aspect of the distal tibial physis… All patients had a CT scan prior to definitive fixation. Plafond fractures are infrequent injuries, accounting for 7-10% of all tibial fractures. tibial plafond is less stiff than the talar dome, placing them at risk for osteochondritis disse-cans of the tibial plafond. Postoperative radiographs demonstrated what appeared to be an anatomic reduction of the fibula and syndesmosis, but with distal translation of the talus with respect to the tibial plafond and an increase in the tibiotalar clear space (Figs. Computerized tomography (CT) scans. C. CT three-dimensional reconstruction. Coronal and sagittal CT scan images are shown in Figures D and E. What is the MOST appropriate next step in management in addition to operative irrigation and debridement? A 'pilon' fracture is any fracture of the distal tibia which involves the articular surface of the tibia - also known as the 'tibial plafond' Page author: Members receive the 'Picture of the week', new operative techniques and can submit their problem cases for an expert opinion. An x-ray can show if there is an injury to your bones or if the joints in your ankle are out of place. A 33-year-old male sustains the injury shown in Figure A. Introduction. An angle of less than 84 degrees is regarded as talipes varus, and an angle of more than 94 degrees is regarded as talipes valgus. The bent tip is turned posteriorly and advanced to the tibial plafond (Figure 8). Fractures of the distal tibial plafond are also termed pilon fractures to describe the high energy axial compression force of the tibia as it acts as a pestle, driving vertically into the talus. 1c) were measured using the axial images. He has a 2 cm laceration over the medial ankle with exposed bone and a normal neurovascular exam. Our e-learning platform contains high resolution images and a certified CME of the Internal fixation of distal tibial Pilon fracture using Stryker AxSOS 3Ti plate surgical procedure. B. Radiology Masterclass, Department of Radiology, When Tibial Plateau Fractures Are A Pain The tibial plateau is an important weight -bearing part of the body that connects the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone via ligaments. Tested Concept, Short leg splint placement and transition to short leg cast at 2 weeks, Closed reduction and spanning external fixation of the ankle, Open reduction and internal fixation of the fibula and tibia, Open reduction and internal fixation of the fibula with Blair arthrodesis of the ankle, Open reduction and internal fixation of the tibia and articulating external fixation of the ankle, (OBQ12.161) (b) Sagittal T1-weighted MR image (450/14) of the ankle in 14-year-old girl shows a more undulating distal tibial physis and zone of provisional calcification (arrow), typical for older children. CT cross-sectional image. Excision of the diseased osteochondral defect. A 52-year-old carpenter falls off of a balcony while at work and sustains the injury shown in Figure A. The tibial plafond, lateral malleolus, and medial malleolus form a mortise, a socket in which the talus sits (Figure 2). All courses are CME/CPD accredited in accordance with the CPD scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists - London - UK. The axial CT images were reviewed. B. I suggest you review the next query regarding Tibial Plafond fractures. The optimal approach side can be determined according to: Size of the anterolateral fragment: when it is large, and its medial fracture plane is at or near the medial malleolus, an anteromedial approach is recommended. A 55-year-old female presents to the emergency room after falling off her balcony. The syndesmosis is the fibrous connection between the fibula and tibia formed by the anterior and posterior tibiofibular ligaments - located at the level of the tibial plafond (French for ceiling) - and the interosseus ligament, which is the thickened lower portion of the interosseus membrane. 3A and 3B). The treatment of tibial plafond fractures is challenging to foot and ankle surgeons. Therefore, arthritis developing in the ankle is usually promoted by specific causes, typically accidents. This is a Schatzker II injury. Copyright © 2020 Lineage Medical, Inc. All rights reserved. Fig. CT cross-sectional image. 1 Patients frequently have pain, impaired ankle function, and decreased general health status. ©Radiology Masterclass 2007 - now=new Date [1] in 2000, and later reported by Weber [2], which is described as posterior malleolar fractures extend- Rüedi and Allgöwer (1979)—The system of Rüedi and Allgöwer is perhaps the most widely used classification of tibial plafond fractures reported in the literature. If the articular anatomy of the tibial plafond is in reasonable condition, then the focus of the reconstruction can be on addressing only the metaphyseal nonunion. Only 5% - 10% of all cases of arthritis of the ankle occur as primary arthritis of the ankle, i.e. Approach to Osteochondral Lesions of the Tibial Plafond Fig. A pilon fracture (also called a tibial plafond fracture) is a comminuted fracture of the distal tibia involving the ankle joint. A 45-year-old male laborer falls off a 15 foot retaining wall 6 hours ago and sustains an open fracture shown in Figures A through C. He has a normal neurovascular exam. Plafond fractures are also known as \"pilon\" fracture, or \"explosion fracture.\" I suggest you review the next query regarding Tibial Plafond fractures. She is otherwise healthy, but routinely smokes 30 cigarettes per day. View Tools Recall Comm. Tested Concept, (OBQ06.8) Get an accredited certificate of achievement by completing one of our online course completion assessments. A 35-year-old male laborer falls off a ladder and sustains the injury shown in Figures A and B. There are also associated fractures of the talar dome and tip of the lateral malleolus. Go to the full DICOM version. When Tibial Plateau Fractures Are A Pain The tibial plateau is an important weight -bearing part of the body that connects the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone via ligaments. Although the ligaments are needed to give the ankle its full stability, the bony congruity of the mortise and the talus is a necessary component as well forming the … In past anatomic reports of the tibial plafond attachment of the PITFL, the length, the width, and the size of the attachment of PITFL were varied. B. CT coronal reconstruction. The patient's BMI is 52 and he smokes 2 packs of cigarettes per day; a clinical photograph of the limb is shown in Figure B. Introduction: Osteochondral lesions of the tibial plafond account for approximately 2.6% of osteochondral lesions in the ankle. Login or register to get started. Rüedi and Allgöwer (1979)—The system of Rüedi and Allgöwer is perhaps the most widely used classification of tibial plafond fractures reported in the literature. The necrotic fragment usually becomes revascularised and reattaches to the surrounding bone. Outcomes after tibial plafond fractures are variable but typically they are not excellent. Hover on/off image to show/hide findings. 1,6,7,9,10,19 This study is the first report of the tibial plafond attachment of the PITFL focused on the positional relationship with the articular surface. X-rays of the leg, ankle, and foot are commonly done to evaluate a pilon fracture. Vascular insult is an unlikely cause of os-teochondral injury in the tibial plafond. Using the PACS, the corrected Mikulicz line was drawn by connecting the center of the femoral head and the 62.5% point of the plateau on the whole-leg standing X-ray (green line in Figure 1 ). Full size image. He is now 3 weeks from injury and skin swelling has subsided significantly. If the articular anatomy of the tibial plafond is in reasonable condition, then the focus of the reconstruction can be on addressing only the metaphyseal nonunion. “Pilon,” the French word for pestle, was first used by Etienne Destot in 1911 as an analogy for the mechanical function of the distal tibia on the talus. Tap on/off image to show/hide findings. Radiology Masterclass, Department of Radiology, A 'pilon' fracture is any fracture of the distal tibia which involves the articular surface of the tibia - also known as the 'tibial plafond', The lateral image demonstrates a step in the tibial plafond, Irregularity or depression of the talar dome surface may represent a significant defect of the bone (osteo) and cartilage (chondro), The talar dome surface is an important review area which should be assessed on all ankle X-rays, A distal tibial fracture passes to the growth plate, Note the normal unfused calcaneal apophysis which should not be mistaken for a fracture. Sinding-Larsen-Johannson syndrome is a traction apophysitis involving the inferior pole of the patella, typically affecting individuals age 10–14. Pilon fractures, or fractures of the tibial plafond, range from low- to high-energy axial-loading injuries. adduction, thereby allowing the tibial plateau to become horizontal.16 The slight valgus of the ankle joint makes the distal tibial plafond parallel to the knee joint and therefore, parallel to the ground during single leg stance. The necrotic fragment usually becomes revascularised and reattaches to the surrounding bone.

Tested Concept, (OBQ05.157) A 32-year-old man sustains a pilon fracture which is treated initially with a spanning external fixator, as shown in figure A. Pass the wire across the joint using the bi-plane image control. It is also known as Pilon fracture and explosion fracture. His wounds healed without infection or other complications. What would be the most appropriate sequence of treatment steps for definitive management of this injury? Very interesting case of a typical Osteochondritis Dissecans in the posterior tibial plafond. Most fractures are secondary to high-energy trauma that result in significant bone and soft tissue damage. Marrow edema (green arrow) at the posterolateral tibial plateau on this image represented an osseous contusion related to an acute ACL tear (c blue arrow) (Color figure online) Full size image. Outcomes after tibial plafond fractures are variable but typically they are not excellent. parameters that correlate with a poor clinical outcome and inability to return to work, distal tibia forms an inferior quadrilateral surface and pyramid-shaped medial malleolus, articulates with the talus and fibula laterally via the fibula notch, passes between 2 heads of tibialis posterior and interosseous membrane (IOM), lies anterior to IOM between tibialis anterior and EHL, continues in deep posterior compartment of leg, courses obliquely to pass behind medial malleolus, terminates by dividing into medial and lateral plantar arteries, main branch takes off 2.5 cm distal to popliteal fossa, continues in deep posterior compartment between tibialis posterior and FHL, crosses over popliteus from the popliteal fossa and splits 2 heads of gastrocnemius, passes deep to soleus coursing to the posterior aspect of the medial malleolus, terminates as medial and lateral plantar nerves, muscular branches supply posterior leg (superficial and deep posterior compartments), winds around neck of fibula and runs deep to peroneus longus, divides into superficial and deep peroneal nerves, courses along border between lateral and anterior compartments of leg, supplies muscular branches to peroneus longus and brevis (lateral compartment), terminates as medial dorsal and intermediate dorsal cutaneous nerves, supplies musculature of anterior compartment and sensation to first web space, continuation of femoral nerve of the thigh, becomes subcutaneous on medial aspect of knee between sartorius and gracilis, supplies sensation to medial aspect of leg and foot, formed by cutaneous branches of tibial (medial sural cutaneous) and common peroneal (lateral sural cutaneous) nerves, Each category is further subdivided based on amount and degree of comminution, Simple displacement with incongruous joint, ankle pain, inability to bear weight, deformity, examine for associated musculoskeletal injuries, examine stability and alignment of the ankle joint, stable fracture patterns without articular surface displacement, significant risk of skin problems (diabetes, vascular disease, neuropathy), long leg cast for 6 weeks followed by fracture brace and ROM exercises, intra-articular fragments are unlikely to reduce with manipulation of displaced fractures, inability to monitor soft tissue injuries is a major disadvantage, provides stabilization to allow for soft tissue healing, fractures with significant joint depression or displacement, definitive fixation for majority of pilon fractures, joint-spanning articulated vs. nonspanning hybrid ring, none have been shown to be superior with respect to ankle stiffness, 2 tibial shaft half pins connected to hindfoot half pins or calcaneal transfixation pin, with hybrid fixators, thin wires may be placed within joint capsule or within zone of injury, decreased incidence of wound complications and deep infections, can combine with limited percutaneous fixation using lag screws, anatomic articular reconstruction may not be possible, especially with central depression, useful with fractures impacted in valgus or with an intact fibula, must respect soft tissues (generally >7 cm skin bridge with full thickness skin flaps), reattach articular block to metaphysis and shaft, may be augmented with external fixation (with or without limited ORIF), clinical improvement may occur for up to 2 years, free flap for postoperative wound breakdown, wait for soft tissue edema to subside before ORIF (1-2 weeks), treat with bone grafting and plate fixation, most commonly begins 1-2 years postinjury, arthrodesis is not commonly required until many years later, chondrocyte cell death at fracture margins is a contributing factor, Adult Knee Trauma Radiographic Evaluation, Proximal Humerus Fracture Malunion and Nonunion, Distal Radial Ulnar Joint (DRUJ) Injuries, account for <10% of lower extremity injuries, incidence increasing as survival rates after motor vehicle collisions increase, swelling, abrasions, ecchymosis, fracture blisters, open wounds, full-length tibia/fibula and foot x-rays performed for fracture extension, leave until swelling resolves (generally 10-14 days), limited or definitive ORIF can be performed acutely with low complications in certain situations, brake travel time returns to normal 6 weeks after weight bearing, alternative to ORIF for fractures with simple intra-articular component (AO/OTA 43 C1/C2), maintain soft tissue attachments of fragments, Chaput fragment - anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament, when compared to no instrumentation of the fibula no difference in alignment or reduction but higher rates of fibular hardware removal, can use anterolateral, anterior, anteromedial, medial, or posterior plating techniques for the tibia, location of plates/screws are fracture and soft-tissue dependent, can be with intramedullary screw/wire or plate/screw construct. Each fracture was categorized according to the location of the major fracture line on the computed tomographic image at the level of the tibial plafond. Tested Concept, Immediate definitive fixation of the tibia, and nonoperative treatment of the fibula, Immediate ankle-spanning external fixation device with consideration of immediate fixation of the fibula, followed by delayed reconstruction of the tibia, Placement of a temporary splint, elevation, and definitive fixation 1 week from injury, Immediate definitive fixation of the tibia and fibula, Immediate placement of a spanning Ilizarov fixator with limited internal fixation of the distal tibia and fibula, (OBQ11.103) An angle of less than 84 degrees is regarded as talipes varus, and an angle of more than 94 degrees is regarded as talipes valgus. A pilon fracture is a type of distal tibial fracture involving the tibial plafond. Tested Concept, open reduction internal fixation of the fibula only, open reduction internal fixation of the tibia and fibula, removal of external fixator and conversion to a walking cast, (OBQ04.216) C. CT three-dimensional reconstruction. In past anatomic reports of the tibial plafond attachment of the PITFL, the length, the width, and the size of the attachment of PITFL were varied. The preoperative Mikulicz line was calculated by drawing a line between the center of the femoral head and the center of the tibial plafond. “Pilon,” the French word for pestle, was first used by Etienne Destot in 1911 as an analogy for the mechanical function of the distal tibia on the talus. All medial malleolar osteotomies showed complete union at 3 months postoperatively. B. CT coronal reconstruction. X-rays provide images of dense structures, such as bone. SBCs were first discovered in 1940s, but doctors are still uncertain about the reasons they form. (Read bio). If a defor-mity above the ankle is suspected, it is generally accepted 9.1 Anteroposterior radiograph (a) and MRI (b) demonstrating an osteochondral defect in the tibial plafond (OLTP) with a large overlying periarticular cyst Diagnosis is usually made on a CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [ 2, 6 ].
