Rehabilitation of Isolated Patella Fracture: A Case Report

Mohd Asif, Zuheb Ahmed Siddiqui


Abstract: Fracture of the patella is a common injury among adults having higher prevalence among males population. The mechanism of injury involves direct and indirect mechanisms. The most common fracture pattern occurring is the transverse fracture followed by comminuted and vertical fractures. Treatment of patellar fractures depends on fracture type, integrity of extensor mechanism and size of fragment. Conservative management includes splinting and rest. Surgical techniques involve anterior tension band wiring and partial/total patellectomy. In our case a 27 year old underwent anterior tension band wiring after suffering a fracture of the left patella. Physiotherapy management included early weight bearing followed by gradual mobilization and strengthening of extensor compartment of the knee joint.
