Abstract

A technique of arthroscopic reduction and fixation of type III tibial-eminence fractures is described. After reduction of the fracture, polyglactin (Vicryl) suture was passed into the knee with the use of the arthroscope to fix the fracture. Early mobilization of the patients was begun after 2 weeks. Two patients (aged 10 and 13 years old), with 2 years follow-up after treatment of their fracture with this technique, had full range of motion of the knee with no sign of instability. Arthroscopic reduction and fixation of type III tibial-eminence fractures is a technique that can reduce hospital stay, rehabilitation, and the morbidity associated with the use of an arthrotomy for treatment.
