Arthroscopic Reduction and Internal Fixation of Bony Avulsion of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament

Abstract

Bony avulsion fractures of the posterior cruciate ligament of the tibia have commonly been treated by open reduction and intemal fixation through posterior approach. However this approach using prone position make it difficult to investigate and treat other combined injuries of the knee joint. We report a case of the posterior cruciate ligament avulsion of the tibia that was arthroscopically reduced and firmly fixed with two cannulated screws and also, detection of concomitant injury was possible The posterior sag was absent after operation and the result was excellent.
