Abstract : Fractures around the joints, particularly in osteoporotic bones, have always been a surgical challenge to the orthopaedic surgeons. The aim of surgical treatment of periarticular fractures is to accomplish bone union, restore and preserve normal function by anatomical restoration, thus preserving a functional pain free range of motion of the adjacent joint. Plate techniques were desired to obtain primary fracture healing without any callus formation. Anatomical reduction required large open approaches and wide dissections with additional damage and oppression of the blood supply to fractured bone fragments. As a consequence of such traumatic operation techniques, delayed healing, pseudoarthrosis and increased infection could be seen. To evaluate the radiological union in periarticular fractures fixed internally using compression plate, functional outcome in patients based on joint findings, complications, assess the factors influencing the results, To uncover unanticipated outcomes. Interventional and Observational prospective study in MIMER Medical College and Hospital Talegaon in sample size of about 60 patients considering 10% of non-responding patients. Patients were followed up after 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 9 months of surgery and X-Rays were taken. The final outcome of study was analyzed after 9 months of follow up. Good outcome is achieved in most periarticular fractures with minimal complications. Locking compression plate is a recommended modality in treatment of fractures around joints.
