Abstract
Marginal fractures of the tibial plateau are associated with a high inciden ce of soft tissue injuries to the stabilising structures of the knee joint. Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament are associated with the Segond fracture and impingement fractures of the posteromedial tibial plateau. Rec ognition of these fractures aids diagnosis of these injuries. Marginal frac tures of the tibial plateau associated with posterior cruciate ligament inj uries are less common, though recently a "reverse" Segond fracture has been recognised. We describe a fracture of the anteromedial tibial plateau asso ciated with complete disruption of the posterior cruciate ligament and post erolateral complex.
