  • Eight weeks after transposition of the tibial tubercle for recurrent subluxation of the patella, the patient sustained a tibial fracture during rope jumping. In spite of consolidation of the osteotomy in the frontal plane, there remained a small gap in the anterior cortex in the transverse plane through which the tibia failed during bending stress.
