Osgood-Schlatter Disease as a Possible Cause of Tibial Tuberosity Avulsion.

Cureus 2021 Feb 10;13(2):e13256. Epub 2021 Feb 10.

Emergency Medicine, Brooke Army Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, USA.

Osgood-Schlatter disease (OSD) proposes that bony microtrauma of the patellar tendon insertion on the tibial tuberosity may be due to inappropriate stress with adolescent activity, and is a common pathology among pediatric patients. Lack of activity restrictions may further contribute to significant bony damage due to continued quadriceps contraction, which in some cases results in a tibial tuberosity avulsion fracture. Evaluation in the ED should include distal neurovascular status, as compartment syndrome has also been documented.

Type IIIB Tibial Tubercle Avulsion Fracture: A Case Report.

J Long Term Eff Med Implants 2020 ;30(2):119-123

First Department of Orthopaedics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine, ATTIKON University Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Tibial tubercle avulsion fractures are uncommon injuries that are seen mostly in adolescent male patients during athletic activities. The mechanism of injury usually involves a strong eccentric contraction of the quadriceps femoris muscle when the proximal tibial physis is closing, leading to failure of the physis at the patellar tendon insertion. The treatment of patients with tibial tubercle avulsion fractures depends on the fracture pattern; it can be conservative with immobilization in a long leg cast in extension for 6 weeks with minimal displacement (< 2 mm) and/or acceptable displacement after closed reduction/cast application.
