From: Comparing case-control study for treatment of proximal tibia fractures with a complete metaphyseal component in two centers with different distinct strategies: fixation with Ilizarov frame or locking plates

   External fixation (N = 62) Plate fixation (N = 68) P value

Mean BMI   25.56 ± 4.77 25.6 ± 4.27 .447
Gender Male/female 30/32 36/32 .88
ASA score (%) ASA 1 21 (33.8) 16 (23.52)  
  ASA 2 29 (46.77) 38 (55.88) .414
  ASA 3 12 (19.35) 14 (20.58)  
Smoking (%) Smokers 26 (41.9) 14 (20.6) .008
