High-Grade Impaction Fractures with ACL Tears Have Increased Preoperative Pivot Shift


High-Grade Posterolateral Tibial Plateau Impaction Fractures in the Setting of a Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear Are Correlated With an Increased Preoperative Pivot Shift and Inferior Postoperative Outcomes After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

High-Grade Impaction Fractures with ACL Tears Have Increased Preoperative Pivot Shift

Incidence of Displaced Posterolateral Tibial Plateau and Lateral Femoral Condyle Impaction Fractures in the Setting of Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear


Abstract

Bone bruising of the posterolateral tibial plateau and the lateral femoral condyle sulcus terminalis has a well-established association with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Impaction fractures of the femur and tibia may occur in these locations; however, there is a paucity of literature describing these fractures.

Morphologic Variants of Posterolateral Tibial Plateau Impaction Fractures in the Setting of Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear


Abstract

Impaction fractures of the posterolateral tibial plateau commonly occur in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, with considerable variability found in fracture size and morphologic features.  The primary objective was to characterize different morphologic variants of posterolateral tibial plateau impaction fractures. The secondary objective was to investigate the association between these impaction […]
