Abstract:

Periprosthetic fractures after total knee arthroplasty are difficult to treat for orthopedic surgeon.
Peri-articular locking compression plates have become popular for fixation of the periprosthetic
fracture. However, secure fixation can be difficult to achieve, owing to far distally extended fracture
line, osteoporosis, chronic infection, and interference of the prosthesis. Author reports two cases
that could get reliable fixation with double locking plating in situation could not get secure stability
by a unilateral lateral locking plating.
