NC92.13/S82.1 Fracture of upper end of tibia, lateral condyle



Fracture of the upper end of the tibia, lateral condyle, is caused by a direct or indirect force, such as a fall, motor vehicle accident, or a sports-related injury.


The diagnosis is made based on a physical examination and imaging tests, such as X-rays or CT scans.

Differential diagnosis

The differential diagnosis includes other fractures in the area, such as a fracture of the medial condyle, or a fracture of the patella.


Treatment usually involves immobilization of the affected limb and/or surgery to repair the fracture.


With proper treatment and rehabilitation, most patients can expect a full recovery. However, in some cases, the injury may cause permanent damage to the joint, leading to long-term pain or disability.
