    Of all long bone fractures in adults, only 10% involve the proximal tibia. Despite of the advanced implants and surgical technique, proximal tibia fractures involving articular surface, especially AO/OTA C-types, still remain a great challenge for the surgeon. The purpose of the study was to...
