Tibial plateau fracture

Posted by shehata88 @shehata88, Apr 17, 2018

I had lat. Tibial plateau fracture 7months ago. Three months post operative I developed infection, my doctor told me that is from the plate and advice me to adapt to this situation till complete 6 months to get rid of plate and screws. Now I have complete 7 months post operative and another doctor suggested only depridment without removal of plate….

@shehata88, welcome to Connect. First, those are some intense screws! I have screws in my left ankle from an ankle fusion, but they are not quite as big as those. If you don't mind sharing a bit more, now that you are seven months post-op, how is your infection doing? Did your provider discuss that a debridement would help with the infection?


Infection formed a sinus that discharge pus continously
My doctor told me that depridment will comfort me some what, but not will eradicate infection
