          Fractures of the tibial plateau account for 8% of all fractures in older adults [1–4], where the most prevalent mechanism of injury is a low-energy fall from standing height [2]. However, the overall distribution of these fractures among the population is bimodal, with a younger cohort sustaining these fractures resulting from high-energy injuries [1]. In older adults, osteoporosis is a significant and dominant risk factor in sustaining these fractures from low-energy mechanisms. This is often further complicated by other factors including pre-existing comorbidities, pre-existing degenerative joint disease and a patient's premorbid functional status [5].
