Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the imaging characteristics of exercise-induced tibial plateau fracture by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and its correlation with meniscus tear. 102 patients with tibial plateau fracture were selected to analyze the difference of the incidence of meniscus tear in different types of tibial plateau fracture, and to compare the difference of clinical data and MRI parameters between patients with and without meniscus tear. The incidence of meniscus tear in Schatzker type Ⅱ tibial plateau fracture was significantly higher than that in type Ⅳ (P<0.05). The proportion of tibial plateau fracture collapse in the anterolateral part and the relative area in patients with meniscus tear were significantly higher than those without meniscus tear (P<0.05), and the area under the ROC curve for predicting meniscus tear was 0.630 and 0.765, respectively (P<0.05). Different Schatzker types of tibial plateau fractures have different meniscus tears, MRI has a certain application value in predicting meniscus tears.

Key words: magnetic resonance imaging, tibial plateau fracture, tear of meniscus, Schatzker typing
