Tibial plateau fractures are routinely treated with open reduction internal fixation (ORIF); however, the long-term results of ORIF are unclear. The purpose of the current study is to evaluate outcomes in these patients, including: the rate of conversion of ORIF to total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the relationship between elevated inflammatory markers after the initial ORIF and subsequent infection in TKA, and the rationale behind performing the conversion to TKA in one step versus two steps.

Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
