Abstract

Case:

A 36-year-old woman sustained a medial tibial plateau fracture involving a tibial tunnel that had been used 4 years prior for an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with a bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) allograft in the same knee. At 26 months following open reduction and internal fixation of the tibial plateau fracture (6 years following the index ACL reconstruction), the patient returned to full activity.

Conclusion:

To our knowledge, this is the first report of a tibial plateau fracture following ACL reconstruction with a BPTB allograft, which adds to the paucity of literature discussing tibial plateau fractures following ACL reconstruction and discusses the potential predisposing factors to fracture such as ACL graft selection and surgical technique.
