Tibial tubercle avulsion fractures in adolescent basketball players.

Orthopedics 2012 August 2
Tibial tubercle avulsion fractures most commonly occur in adolescent boys and usually result from pushing off or landing while jumping. These fractures are relatively uncommon but can have a significant functional effect. The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term outcome with return to play in 8 adolescent basketball players with at least 4 years of postoperative reconditioning.
