Lateral tibial rim Segond fractures

Location: http://radiology.rsna.org/content/180/3/731.full.pdf+html

The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging characteristics of lateral tibial rim (Segond) fractures and their associated injuries were reviewed in 12 patients with radiographic evidence of this fracture. Bone marrow adjacent to the fracture emitted a focally abnormal MR signal, which indicated an injury of the lateral capsular junction. The Segond...

Pathogenesis of the Segond Fracture

Location: http://radiology.rsna.org/content/219/2/381.full

The Segond fracture is an avulsion fracture involving the proximal tibia immediately distal to the lateral plateau. It was described by Paul Segond in 1879, in cadaveric experiments, as a cortical avulsion of the tibia at the site of insertion of the middle third of the lateral capsular ligament (LCL)...

Segond fracture and Pellegrini-Stieda MedPix

Location: http://rad.usuhs.edu/medpix/medpix.html?mode=single&recnum=2768

Segond Fracture of the knee is a avulsion fracture at the lateral aspects of the proximal tibia at the insertion of the middle third of the lateral capsular ligament. It was first described by Paul Segond in 1879. Preceeding studies show a high association with anterior cruciate ligament tear(75%-100%). It...

Segond fracture with anterior cruciate ligament tear in an adolescent

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2656983/

The authors report a case of acute knee injury in a 14-year-old teenager. The X-ray showed a so-called Segond’s fracture: a small avulsed bone fragment, elliptical in shape, lying immediately below the external tibial plateau, a few millimeters from the lateral tibial cortex. The fracture site was in the portion...

Segond fractures of the lateral tibial condyle

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/69-B/4/613

Avulsion of a bony fragment from a point behind Gerdy's tubercle was originally described in cadaver experiments before the discovery of x-rays (Segond 1879). Since that time reports of this fracture in clinical practice have been scarce. Most authors have stressed the constant site and appearance of the avulsed tibial fragment (Dietz,...

The Reverse Segond Fracture Association with a Tear of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament and Medial Meniscus

Location: http://www.ajronline.org/cgi/content/full/178/4/979

OBJECTIVE. We describe three patients who presented with radiographic findings of a fragment on the medial side of the tibial plateau of the knee that represented an avulsion of the deep portion of the medial collateral ligament. These findings were all associated with disruption of the posterior cruciate ligament and...
