The most common high-energy mechanism of injury is a road traffic accident (RTA), and the most common low-energy mechanism is a fall. Depending on the mechanism of injury, radiographic evaluation of distal femur fractures may include orthogonal plain radiographs of the entire length of the femur to avoid missing ipsilateral femoral neck or shaft fractures. True knee radiographs are required to screen for intra-articular extension of fracture lines. If intra-articular extension is suspected – particularly coronal plane fractures which can be difficult to see on plain X-rays – a CT scan may be helpful in planning treatment.

Muscle attachments when a fracture occurs produce deforming forces. • Treatment options include conservative, open reduction and internal fixation and hemiarthroplasty. 22 Orthopaedics CASE 8: A BOY WITH A PAINFUL ELBOW History A 7-year-old boy fell from his bicycle and described landing on his outstretched right arm in abduction with the elbow in extension. He complained immediately of severe pain around the right elbow, but no other parts of his body were painful. He has presented to the emergency department.

An arthrogram assesses the size of the cartilaginous fragment and the degree of articular displacement which can help in decision-making in difficult cases. Fragment stabilization is most frequently performed using two percutaneously placed smooth Kirschner wires (k-wires). If the fracture is grossly unstable, open reduction and stabilization with wires may be necessary. Care must be taken during the exposure to avoid denuding the blood supply to the lateral condyle from the posterior soft-tissue structure.
