The article "Prospective study of management of Schatzker’s type V and VI tibial plateau fractures by different types of plate osteosynthesis" is retracted by the Editor-in-Chief, on the request of corresponding author and co-authors, due to violation of the policies and practices of International Journal of Research in Orthopaedics. The corresponding author communicated the above article without knowledge of the principal investigator, Dr. Romit Agrawal and co researchers involved in the study. After the publication of the above article, the principal investigator reported that a large part of the text, clinical photographs, x-ray images and tables are plagiarized from his dissertation work.
