Summary of "Tibial spine avulsion fracture."

The patient was a 32-year-old male who sustained a noncontact left knee injury during a quick pivot on a planted left foot, while playing flag football. Radiographs of the left knee revealed findings consistent with a tibial spine avulsion fracture, while magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a medial tibial spine avulsion fracture. Bone marrow edema was noted in a pivot shift injury pattern involving the lateral femoral condyle and the lateral tibial plateau, and there was also a fracture of the posterior lateral tibial cortex at the site of the bone marrow edema. To determine the best course of treatment, a computed tomography scan was ordered to better visualize the extent of the avulsion fracture. The computed tomography scan demonstrated a comminuted fracture through the tibial spine.J Orthop Sports Phys Ther 2010;40(9):594. doi:10.2519/jospt.2010.0414.

Fixation failure in an isolated tibial eminence ACL traction avulsion fracture in a paratrooper: is there an association with vitamin D deficiency?

Tibial eminence avulsion fracture at the ACL footprint may be caused by high-energy forces such as a fall, in which the ACL ligament proves stronger than the forces that hold the bone together. For re...

Arthroscopic absorbable suture fixation for tibial spine fractures.

The purpose of this technical note and accompanying video is to describe a modified arthroscopic suture fixation technique to treat tibial spine avulsion fractures. Twenty-one patients underwent arthr...

Comparison of conservative against surgical treatment of anterior-superior iliac spine avulsion fractures in children and adolescents.

Avulsion fracture of the anterior-superior iliac spine is an uncommon injury. It is mostly seen in adolescent sprinters, distance runners and soccer players. Most cases are unilateral. We present a co...

Tibial baseplate fracture associated with polyethylene wear and osteolysis after total knee arthroplasty.

Fracture of the tibial baseplate following total knee arthroplasty is very rare given the developments in modern prosthesis design. Tibial baseplate fracture secondary to polyethylene wear, osteolysis...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)

Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.

The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
