Minifragmentation plating for comminuted distal patella fractures. A report of three cases



Minifragmentation plating for comminuted distal patella fractures. A report of three cases



Orthopaedic Review Suppl.: 26-31



A new technique using a minifragmentation plate to assist in the open reduction and internal fixation of displaced, comminuted distal-pole patella fractures was used in three patients with good results. This technique adds to the choices of treatment available to the orthopaedic surgeon who manages these difficult fractures.
