Abstract :

 The proximal tibial fractures are associated with high energy trauma and present with difficulty in treatment due to subcutaneous bone, frequent open fractures. In our study, we have operated 20 patients with hyid external fixator for definitive treatment of these fractures. This technique gives good reduction, adequate stability, early mobilization and less complications. Prospective analysis of 20 patients was done with proximal tibial fractures classified according to AO  classification in our institute who were treated by application of hyid external fixator. In our study, Functional and radiological outcome was assessed using Knee society score at final followup. 12 patients had an excellent  outcome and 5 patients had good outcome. Hyid external fixator is a simple way to treat proximal tibial fractures with a low complication rate and good clinical outcomes.
