Description: Forty-five patients with fractures of the tibial spine were reviewed 3 to 10 years after injury in order to determine the degree of residual laxity of the cruciate or collateral ligaments. After fractures which had been partially or completely displaced, some anterior cruciate laxity was evident, even if patients were asymptomatic. It was also found that an anatomical reduction did not prevent either laxity or some loss of full extension of the knee.
