Immediate weight-bearing following osteosynthesis of proximal tibial fractures is traditionally not allowed due to fear of articular fracture collapse. Anatomically shaped locking plates with sub-articular screws could improve stability and allow greater loading forces. The purpose of this study was to investigate if immediate weight-bearing can be allowed following locking plate osteosynthesis of proximal tibial fractures.
