Abstract

Seventeen patients (16 children, I adolescent) were reviewed 31 months to 71 months after sustaining the common childhood fracture of the eminentia intercondylaris of the tibia. The aim was to assess long-term results and prognosis by clinical and radiological examination and to discover whether conservative treatment was adequate for type I and type II fractures according to Meyers and McKeever.
