Background To determine the clinical outcome of patients who had been treated with bone allografts during open reduction
and internal fixation (ORIF) of tibial head fractures.
Methods Patients who suffered a medial, lateral, or bicondylar fracture of the tibial plateau and underwent surgical treatment
by open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) using human femoral head bone allografts were included. Patients were
invited to provide information for the following: Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC),
EuroQol Five Dimension score (EQ-5D), Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS) and Parker Mobility Score. Bone mineral
density (BMD) of the allograft area and the healthy human bone tissue were measured by quantitative computed tomography.
