Abstract: Fifty patients with isolated open tibial shaft fractures were reviewed to determine the incidence and type of knee ligament injuries sustained. Eighteen patients (36 per cent) had at least one ligament injury in the ipsilateral knee; eight had multiple ligament injuries. Only four patients (22 per cent) were diagnosed as having a ligament injury at the time of initial management and the remaining 14 patients were diagnosed at the time of review for this study. There is a high incidence of ipsilateral knee ligament injuries in open tibial shaft fractures; the knee should be thoroughly examined at the time of initial fracture management.
