Trauma of the Distal Femur, Knee, Tibia, and Fibula
Isolated extra-articular fractures at or below the diaphyseal-metaphyseal junction of the distal femur are common. The management is challenging, and the results depend on the surgeon’s experience and available resources. Rigid internal fixation of extra-articular fractures is the only way to allow early mobilization of both the knee joint and the patient, with all the known benefits of each.
