Background: complex proximal tibial fractures Types V & VI of Schautzker classification are the major problems in orthopedic surgery and associated with high complication rates. There are many alternatives in treatment of these fractures. Aim: to evaluate the results of double plating with single anterior incision in complex proximal tibial fractures Types V& VI of Schautzker classification.Methods and Materials: 22 patients 16 males and 6 females with Types V and VI of Schautzker classification of proximal tibial fractures 14 cases were Type V and 8 cases were Type VI were treated by double plating with single anterior incision method between May 2006 and May 2011. The bony and functional outcome was evaluated according to Knee Society Score. Results: According to Knee Society Score, the results were as follows: excellent in 19 patients 86.4%, good in 2 patients 9.1%, fair in 1 patient 4-5%, and poor in no patient 0%.Conclusion: the double plate fixation with single anterior incision is the best, effective and simple procedure in treatment of complex proximal tibial fractures Types V and VI of Schautzker classification.
