Pseudo-arthrosis repair of a posterior cruciate ligament avulsion fracture.

Hoogervorst P, Gardeniers JW, Moret-Wever S, van Kampen A - Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc (2010)

Bottom Line: A pseudo-arthrosis repair of a 4-year-old bony avulsion fracture of the PCL using a minimally invasive technique, screw fixation, and bone grafting is reported.The case presented seems to be rather unique due to the fragment size and the approach for pseudo-arthrosis repair.Therefore, refixation and pseudo-arthrosis repair should be considered as a viable treatment.

ABSTRACT
A pseudo-arthrosis repair of a 4-year-old bony avulsion fracture of the PCL using a minimally invasive technique, screw fixation, and bone grafting is reported. The case presented seems to be rather unique due to the fragment size and the approach for pseudo-arthrosis repair. There was a good functional result following minimally invasive pseudo-arthrosis repair of a posterior cruciate ligament avulsion fracture. There are no previous reports of similar pseudo-arthrosis repairs, and other authors report good results of delayed refixation of PCL avulsion fractures. Therefore, refixation and pseudo-arthrosis repair should be considered as a viable treatment.

Fig1: Standard radiographs showing an evident pseudo-arthrosis of the posterior tibial eminence

Mentions: Standard lateral and posterior-anterior radiographs revealed an evident pseudo-arthrosis with a radiolucent and sclerotic line under the posterior tibial eminence. The avulsed fragment measured 32 mm × 24 mm × 12 mm (Fig. 1).Fig. 1
