Transverse patella fracture in a ten year old boy: case report
AbstractPatella fractures are rare in children. Transverse fractures in particular are an uncommon pattern. We report a case of a transverse patella fracture in a ten year old boy. He presented with inability to actively extend his left knee, two months after a fall. On evaluation he was found to have a transverse fracture of his left patella. This was treated by tension band wiring.
