Abstract

Summary:

To evaluate the biomechanical and clinical results of modified separate vertical wiring technique (SVW) for inferior pole patellar fracture repair we conducted a finite element biomechanical study using 2 fixation methods and evaluated a clinical series of eleven patients. The modified SVW technique was an effective, safe and simple method that can provide stable fixation for early exercise with excellent functional results in fixing inferior pole patella fractures.
