Arthroscopic Repair of Tibial Spine Fractures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2430441/

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....

Arthroscopic Suture Fixation of Tibial Eminence Fractures

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rID=17539

Arthroscopic reduction and suture fixation can be used safely and effectively in both skeletally immature and mature patients to treat tibial eminence fractures.
Tibial eminence fractures are relatively rare events, occurring much less commonly than their counterpart, midsubstance anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. These injuries occur more commonly...

Arthroscopic Treatment of Type III Tibial Spine Fractures Using Absorbable Fixation

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rID=2016

Over 2 years, five patients (average age 15 years) were diagnosed with a type III tibial spine fracture. All five fractures were treated with arthroscopic reduction and internal stabilization using absorbable fixation. At average 8.5-year follow-up, patients were interviewed and examined. Results were documented regarding function, KT-1000 testing, range of...

Classification of proximal tibial fractures in children

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2686808/

At our institution, 135 pediatric proximal tibia fractures were treated from 1997 to 2005. Fractures were classified into four groups according to the direction of force of injury: valgus, varus, extension, and flexion–avulsion. Each group was subdivided into metaphyseal and physeal type by fracture location and Salter–Harris classification. Also included...

Fracture of the tibial spine in adults and children

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/74-B/6/848.pdf

We reviewed 19 adults and 12 children who had been treated for avulsion fractures of the tibial spine. Adult injuries have not previously been reported at length; most were caused by road-traffic accidents, and 68% were associated with other injuries, of which 58% were around the knee. The higher incidence of associated injuries...

Fractures of the tibial spine in children

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/70-B/2/228.pdf

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....

Intercondylar Eminence Fractures eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic155.htm

Fractures of the tibial intercondylar eminence are observed mostly in children and adolescents, often after minimal trauma; good results are expected with treatment by anatomic reduction. Although adults also can sustain this type of injury, they will often have additional concurrent knee trauma and, despite anatomic reduction, frequently do poorly.

Tibial Spine Fracture Orthoteers

Location: http://www.orthoteers.com/(S(w4kudb3tyuwzkgql4ehcxaio))/mainpage.aspx?article=468

Common in 8-14 years
Anterior tibial spine is the distal attachment of ACL
Tibial spine is cartilaginous in children
Offers less resistance than the ligament
Tensile stress leads to failure through the cancellous bone under the tibial spine
Posterior tibial spine injuries are rare and occurs in skeletally mature
