ARCUATE FRACTURE KNEE X-RAY , SEGOND FRACTURE, LATERAL FIBULAR FRACTURE

Today’s Tuesday Tip is on 3 fractures ( Segond Fracture, Arcuate Fracture and Lateral Fibular Fracture ) that can be seen on the lateral aspect of the knee x-ray which are indicative of underlying tendon or ligament involvement.

The Fibula Fractures which can be an Arcuate Fracture  and / or a Lateral Fibular Fracture indicates the need for further assessment with MRI of Postero Lateral Corner Injuries or MRI of the LCL and Biceps Femoris for Tears and avulsion / rupture.

The Lateral Tibial plateau fracture indicates the need for further assessment with MRI for a Segond Fracture, tear of the Antero Lateral Ligament and ACL tear.

Thank you to Dr Anil Kookana from Adelaide, Australia for the x-ray.
