Abstract

Avulsion fractures of the knee are often pathognomonic for a specific ligament lesion. For example, avulsion fractures of the lateral head of the tibia (Segond's fragment) are often ACL lesions. Similarly, medial tibial avulsion fractures are sometimes associated with a PCL lesion. We report on two padents with this lesion, describing the instability pattern, the operative reconstruction, and the rehabilitation.
