Abstract

The metaphyseal defects in 40 patients with displaced tibial plateau fractures necessitating surgical repair were filled with either cancellous autograft or interporous hydroxyapatite. Roentgenographic and clinical assessments at follow-up periods averaging 15.4 months (autograft) and 34.5 months (hydroxyapatite) demonstrated no significant differences in the two groups. Interporous hydroxyapatite is a safe, effective alternative to autogenous cancellous bone for the filling of metaphyseal defects associated with tibial plateau fractures.
