Simultaneous, isolated traumatic bilateral patella fractures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Introduction: Isolated traumatic fractures of both Patellae, occurring at the same time, in an otherwise healthy person, are very rare. The Patella, as a subcutaneous and a cancellous bone, is vulnerable to injury. However, simultaneous injury to both Patellae without the involvement of any other bony injuries occurs infrequently, and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. Case Presentation: We report a rare case of isolated, traumatic bilateral Patella fracture with unusual fracture patterns and briefly review the literature. Conclusions: In simultaneous bilateral Patella fractures, good functional outcome can be expected following a stable surgical fixation and a structured rehabilitation regime. However, personality of the fracture determines salvage versus sacrifice of the Patella.
