Fractured Tibial Plateau

If you're like us, and we know you are, you probably found yourself wondering, "just what is a fractured tibial plateau?" Well, wonder no more. This is an X-ray of a Type II (out of six according to Wheeless' Textbook of Orthopaedics) fractured tibial plateau.

Yao's is likely a Type I, it being a non-displaced fracture, so it shouldn't look quite as excruciating... we think. Or choose to believe.
