Alternative Approach to the Proximal Tibia

This video discusses the lateral parapatellar approach for tibial plateau fracture. Skin incision is made away from the crest and anteriorly to patella. Deep dissection is made upto the joint area and arthrotomy is performed. Meniscus is retracted and suture passed through it horizontally that aids in repair to approach the lateral tibial plateau and prophylactic fasciotomy is done for plate placement.
