  Patella Fracture Reduction and Fixation Using Cannulated Screws and Tens Feat. D. Lowe, L. Jazrawi NYU Langone Orthopedics. Suture Repair of Pole Patella Fracture Extensor Mechanism Internal Brace and Patella Fracture Management Feat. J. Paci FORE Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma. Patella fracture is a common problem, representing approximately 1% of all fractures. 1 Displaced patella fractures or those which disrupt the extensor mechanism are usually managed operatively. The current standard remains a tension band wire (TBW) construct, with the option of additional cerclage wiring or TBW through cannulated screws. 2 Elderly patients and particularly those with. fractures and the clinical outcomes of 9 initial patients surgically treated at our institution. This technique allows direct visualization of the articular reduction, provides multiplanar fixation, effectively stabilizes inferior pole comminution, and reduces the risk of patella vascular disruption. Using this technique, we have achieved excellent functional and radiographic outcomes.

In the s, treatment of patella fractures was controversial. Owing to a lack of adequate fixation techniques, surgical experience, and imaging, treatment most often consisted of extension splinting.

They reported significant symptomatic complaints and functional deficits at an average of years follow up. Patella fractures can include a wide spectrum of injuries. Nondisplaced fractures can frequently be treated non-operatively, while severe injuries disrupt the entire extensor mechanism of the knee and necessitate surgery. The fracture repair itself can be simple with tension band or screw fixation but can also require more complex reconstruction.

A bone scan is a test to look at your fracture and check for infection. You will get a radioactive liquid, called a tracer, through a vein in your arm. The tracer collects in your bones and pictures are taken. How is a patellar fracture treated. A brace, cast, or splint may be needed.

The Patella Fracture System includes everything needed to repair transverse patella fractures. The mm blunt-tipped cannulated screws were designed specifically for patella fractures.

In addition, FiberTape ® suture has been attached to 5 Internal Fixation of Patella Fractures. Super-8 MT book needles designed to pass through the screws, subsequently allowing for its use as a tension band.

Patella Fractures: Open Reduction Internal Fixation Matthew R. Camuso INTRODUCTION The patella is the largest sesamoid bone in the body and is a key component of the extensor mechanism, adding a distinct mechanical advantage for optimal knee function.

Between the massive quadriceps muscle and the sturdy patellar tendon (ligament), the patella transmits three to. [1] [2][3][4] Anatomical open reduction and internal fixation is done for most of the transverse fractures with displacement, articular incongruity of 2 mm or more because patella is subjected a.

Patella fractures usually result from direct blows to the front of the knee. Knee ligament injury, femoral shaft or distal femur fracture, and posterior hip dislocation can be associated with patella fractures.

Evaluation 1. AP and lateral views of the knee as well as bilateral axial views of. Patella fracture classification. Patella fracture may be broadly classified under two subheadings, Un-displaced and Displaced fracture. Un-displaced fracture where there is a crack in the patella without any displacement of fractured pieces.

A displaced fracture is a fracture where fractured segments get displaced from each other. It can comminuted fracture (fracture patella get fragmented. Internal Fixation Of Patella Fractures.

Review of Physical Therapy Treatment Conservative treatment, consisting of immobili- zation in a cast for two to three weeks, followed by physical therapy, is sufficient in 50 to 60 per- cent of all patella fracture.

Open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) is a surgery to fix severely broken bones. It’s only used for serious fractures that can’t be treated with a cast or splint. These injuries are usually. Stress fractures commonly occur in distance runners, military recruits, and patients with cerebral palsy with knee flexion contractures.

1 Exposures to forces applied in a rhythmic, repetitive, and sub-threshold manner can cause this form of overuse injury, but even in these groups stress fracture of the patella is rare.

Such injury is recognised in patients who have undergone bone-patellar. Chapter 82 Fractures of the Patella Frank A. Liporace, Joshua R. Langford, George J. Haidukewych Patellar fractures constitute approximately 1% of all bony injuries, with traffic accidents and falls being the most common causes Fractures have also been associated with excessive extensor mechanism contraction, total knee arthroplasty, post–anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

Fractures that require surgery tend to be displaced fractures, meaning the patella has been broken into many different fragments that have separated from each other.

In addition, surgery is typically scheduled immediately if any of the bone fragments have broken through the skin, called an open fracture.

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous location of the patella and the demand for early knee motion contribute to the difficulty in treating patients with patella reported rates in the literature for hardware removal after patella open reduction and internal fixation range from 0% to 60%.

The wide variability of these reports leaves the true frequency of re-operation and complications. Berg EE () Open reduction internal fixation of displaced transverse patella fractures with figure-eight wiring through parallel cannulated compression screws.

I would tend to include the Drilling of the area left uncovered by the loss of articular cartilage in this.

The recommended fixation for comminuted fractures of patella is modified tension band, which can be combined with a cerclage wire or lag screws5. Patellectomy is only indicated when anatomical reduction of the displaced bone fragments is not possible.

Curtis had shown that the Pyrford method provides better fixation of patellar fracture than the. Introduction. The patella is the sesamoid bone of the knee joint.

Its main biomechanical function is to increase the effective lever arm of the quadriceps ().Patellar fractures constitute approximately 1% of all fractures ().Surgical fixation is employed if the extensor mechanism is disrupted or there is more than 2 mm step off and 3 mm of displacement (1, 2).

and Internal Fixation Open reduction and internal fixation is the preferred treatment for most displaced patellar fractures.

Al-though the techniques and materials used in patellar fixation have changed substantially, the goals of restoration of normal anatomy and extensor function remain con-stant.1,11 Several incisions may be used to ex.

Nondisplaced fractures are usually closed fractures. Displaced Fracture. If the patella breaks into two or more separate pieces that don’t remain in contact with each other, the break is called a displaced fracture. This type of fracture may occur in any part of the patella. Abstract. Patella fractures account for approximately 1% of all orthopaedic fractures.

1 Injuries to the patella occur from either direct or indirect trauma. Direct injury mechanisms include blows, falls, or dashboard impacts, while indirect fractures occur due to longitudinal forces from the violent contraction of the quadriceps.

Open reduction internal fixation of displaced transverse patella fractures with figure-eight wiring through parallel cannulated compression screws. J Orthop Trauma. .Todd M. Oliver, MD, (Columbia, MO) demonstrates patella fracture fixation using mm blunt tipped cannulated screws along with a FiberTape ® tension band.

The cannulated screws compress the fracture and the blunt tips prevent lacerations to the FiberTape.A patellar fracture is a break in the patella, or kneecap, the small bone that sits at the front of your knee.

Because the patella acts as a shield for your knee joint, it is vulnerable to fracture if you fall directly onto your knee or hit it against the dashboard in a vehicle collision.
