Abstract

The tibial intercondylar eminence fracture classification was proposed by Meyers and Mckeeverin 1959, according to the intercondylar eminence fracture displacement (Fig. 17.1): Type I, the tibial intercondylar eminence fracture is no obvious shift, the front of fracture bone is just arise; Type II, the 1/3 or 1/2 before the tibial intercondylar eminence fracture bone is arise, looks like a “beak” in the lateral X ray film. Type IIIA, the whole tibial intercondylar eminence fracture bone is arise from the base and no contact with the tibia; Type IIIB, the whole tibial intercondylar eminence fracture bone is arise from the base and with rotating shift.
