The Use of Dual Reconstruction Plates for Failed Fixation of Patellar Fracture after Total Knee Replacement: A Case Report
Patellar fracture after total knee replacement (TKR) is one of the challenging problems in periprosthetic fracture. Open reduction with internal fixation (ORIF), as tension band wiring (TBW), usually required in cases with extensor mechanism disruption. However, many studies reported a high failure rate after using this technique. In this report, we presented an interesting case of periprosthetic patellar fracture after TKR with TBW failure that was successfully treated with double non-locking reconstruction platesfixation and TBW augmentation.
