Abstract: Joint fractures are regarded as serious, causing disability, especially when involving a load joint, as the knee. Early treatment is required in order to get stabilization of fragments, preventing the occurrence of secondary complications. The present study was aimed at assessing functional capacity during daily life activities, on individuals who experienced tibial plateau fractures and submitted to surgical treatment between the years 2002 to 2005. Twenty patients were assessed by using the ADLS questionnaire (Activities of Daily Living Scale). We concluded that 85% of the individuals presented close-to-normal functional capacity, according to the scale's scoring system.
