Distal femoral fractures after knee arthroplasty

Published in International Orthopaedics. 1999, vol. 23, no. 4, p. 236-9
Abstract In seven patients who sustained eight distal femoral fractures following knee arthroplasty all fractures were treated operatively. Seven with open reduction internal fixation and one with external fixation. Seven of eight fractures had an unsatisfactory result. This was due not only to bone quality and fracture comminution, but also to technical problems and choice of implant. Revision surgery is often required.
