DE LA TORRE ROJAS, Miguel Ángel; LOFORTE BABASTRO, Alfredo; GREY GALAN, Jorge  y  RODRIGUEZ REYES, Enrique. Intercondylar Eminence Fracture. ccm [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.4, pp.792-797. ISSN 1560-4381.

The intercondylar eminence or tibia spine is between the inner and outer of the upper surface of the proximal end of the tibia. Fractures at this level appear more frequently in children aged 8-13 years, and usually they are not detected under seven years old. These fractures are essentially avulsions of the crossed ligaments with joint bone fragment. A 13- year-old patient was presented, who suffered a traffic accident, and   as a result of this she got a left knee trauma. A fracture of the intercondylar eminence was diagnosed. The patient underwent reduction and internal fixation with AO micro screw through an anteromedial access. The evolution was satisfactory, achieving adequate fracture fixation, as well as full functional recovery. This is a type of fracture that requires an accurate diagnosis and can be treated conservatively, but with surgery excellent results can be achieved.

Palabras clave : fracture; intercondylar eminence; surgical treatment; AO system.
