Coronal fractures of the lateral femoral condyle

Download PDF


We reviewed seven patients with coronal fractures of the lateral femoral condyle and studied the mechanism of injury and the radiological features. The influence of soft tissue attachments on the displacement and the blood supply were investigated by clinical and cadaveric studies.

Internal fixation gave good results at review, and is recommended to avoid the risk of malunion and possible secondary osteoarthritis.
