Description: There is debate within current literature as to the best treatment of displaced tibial spine fractures.1,2 We suggest a simple and effective arthroscopic approach to this injury. The Twinfix Ti Quick-T soft tissue anchor (Smith and Nephew) has a 3.5-mm screw on a pre-tied suture attaching a high strength ‘T’-bar. The system allows a secure, adjustable fixation of uncomminuted tibial spine fractures.
