Abstract: Twenty-eight patients with fracture proximal tibia at S.M.S. medical college were assigned to assess the functional outcome results between lateral plate fixation versus dual plate fixation for bicondylar tibial plateau fractures treated with either single lateral locking plate or dual locking plate and compare pre-operative characteristics, complications during operative procedure and post operative period. Follow-up for minimum 6 months duration to asses clinical outcome and radiological union. When medial tibial condyle is relative intact, a lateral locking plate can provide the same stability as dual plates with shorter operation time and shorter hospital stay and less soft tissue complications, which can facilitate fracture healing but when medial tibial condyle is displaced, dual plate fixation group had better outcome result than lateral plate group to prevent malalignment/ medial collapse.
