Abstract
Objective: To determine the functional and radiological outcome of condylar buttress plate in patients with intra-articular distal femoral fracture at tertiary care hospital of Karachi, Pakistan.
Methodology: Consecutive patients presenting with intra-articular distal femoral fracture underwent surgical management with condylar buttress plate implant. Functional outcome at 12th week postoperatively was categorized as per the Schatzker and Lambert criteria. Acceptable outcome was defined as good to excellent functional outcomes along with evidence of union on radiological examination.
Results: There were 66 (73.3%) male patients in total of 90 recruited patients with mean age of 37.68.7 years and mean weight was 62.16.5 kg. Functional outcome after 12 weeks were excellent in 49(54.4%) and good in 30(33.3%) patients. Radiological evidence of union was observed in 86(95.6%) and was acceptable in 79(87.8%) patients.
Conclusion: The functional and radiological outcome of condylar buttress plate was found satisfactory in patients with intra-articular distal femoral fracture.

Key words: Distal femoral fractures, condylar buttress plate, functional outcome.
