Patella Fracture

Patella fractures represent approximately 1% of all fractures. They present with a variety of fracture patterns, which can make osteosynthesis challenging. The amount of comminution, degree of osteoporosis and the natural forces across the patella create obstacles to reduction and adequate stabilization. The Patella Fracture Set was designed to facilitate fixation of these frequently challenging injuries.

Included in the set are 4.0 mm Blunt Tip Cannulated Lag Screws. Once in place, FiberTape® suture on a specially designed 5" needle can easily be passed through the screws, allowing for tension-band fixation. The smooth tips of the screws were specifically designed to avoid cutting the FiberTape. This construct has been shown to be stronger than traditional K-wire with cerclage wire constructs.*
