Background: Arthroscopic treatment of tibial eminence fracture requires tiny wire, induces less epiphyseal plate damage during operations, obtains strong fixations, allows early movement postoperatively, obviously attenuate the injuries, facilitate wound healing, and reduce complications. Objective: To investigate the biocompatibility of arthroscopic reduction and wire fixation in treatment of fresh and old tibial eminence fractures. Methods: Twenty-five patients with fresh and old tibial eminence fractures were treated with arthroscopic reduction and wire fixation from January 2010 to April 2012 in the Second People’s Hospital of Yichang City. The postoperative fracture healing time and knee function improvement in the two groups were observed. Results and Conclusion: Compared with the fresh fracture patients, the fracture healing time was longer, Lachman test positive rate was higher in the old fracture patients than (P < 0.05), knee flexion and extension activity and Lysholm score were lower (P < 0.05). Experimental findings indicate that, arthroscopic reduction and wire fixation is a feasible clinical treatment of fresh and old tibial intercondylar eminence fractures. © 2015, Journal of Clinical Rehabilitative Tissue Engineering Research.
