Abstract

Patella fractures are fixed traditionally in orthopaedics by open reduction and internal fixation as it is an intra-articular fracture. Open operative techniques are associated with high incidence of infections, cosmetic problems, and delayed rehabilitation. Percutaneous, arthroscopic techniques have fewer complications but these are technically demanding procedures to master. Percutaneous wiring of patella being a newer technique, in our study of 25 patients we evaluated its results over other conventional methods of treatment of patella fracture. The patients were followed up for 30 months and its results were studied.
