tibial

pertaining to the tibia.

tibial crest
a longitudinal prominence on the cranial border of the proximal tibia. Its proximal end (tibial tubercle) has a growth plate separate from the proximal tibia; hyperflexion injuries to the stifle may result in avulsion of this growth plate in dogs, seen in radiographs as a dorsal displacement of the tibial tubercle and patella.
tibial dyschondroplasia
a disease of broiler chickens and turkeys caused by a combination of dietary and genetic factors and characterized by dyschondroplasia in the proximal end of the tibiotarsal bone. In badly affected birds the leg is bowed and pathological fractures occur.
tibial hemimelia
see inherited tibial hemimelia.
tibial nerve block
injection of an anesthetic agent above the tarsus, in the groove between the gastrocnemius tendon and the deep digital flexor tendon, produces anesthesia of the caudal, lateral and medial surfaces of the tarsus and metatarsus.
tibial nerve injury
results in overflexion of the hock (dropped hock).
tibial rotation
see rotated tibia.
tibial tarsal bone
see talus.

Knee stiffness or contractures are a severe and common complication of a tibial plateau fracture.
Though the majority of tibial plateau fracture literature is dedicated to the bony injury itself, the orthopaedic community has become increasingly aware of the various associated soft tissue lesions that can occur.
