A new reduction technique for a patellar fracture.

Abstract

We report 4 cases of patellar fracture with skin injury over the patella which were treated operatively immediately after onset with a new reduction technique using Ilizarov pins. This technique made it possible to perform early operative treatment even in the cases with skin injury over the patella which prevents conventional surgical approach.
