The article presents a research study which identifies the arthroscopic technique in treating tibial plateau and intercondylar eminence avulsion fracture. It mentions that combined arthroscopic and fluoroscopic-assisted fracture reduction procedure was performed to twenty-one patients and demonstrated positive results on the stability of the fixation on the knee. Surgical tips to achieve satisfactory results with the treatment of various fracture patterns are also presented.
