Abstract

Osteochondral fractures of the lateral femoral condyle are uncommon injuries. These fractures often are misdiagnosed, and the majority of the cases reported have been managed with surgical excision. We present 2 cases of osteochondral fractures of the lateral femoral condyle. Both patients were treated with open reduction internal fixation of their fractures. A lateral approach to the posterolateral aspect of the distal femur is described.
