Abstract : In complex fractures of the proximal tibial metaphysis and epiphysis, possible adverse outcomes after internal fixation include not only joint surface incongruity, but also lower limb malalignment requiring revision surgery. Navigation has been proven effective for the intraoperative control of lower limb alignment during osteotomy and knee arthroplasty. In complex traumatic fractures, temporary fixation by a locking screw plate allows sensor positioning followed by navigation maneuvers to adjust lower limb alignment. If malalignment is found, the construct can be modified economically by altering the diaphyseal fixation without modifying the metaphyseal screws. The objective of this study was to describe the use of navigation in three patients who required internal fixation of tibial-plateau fractures.
