Fractures of the patella in children and adolescents.
Patellar fractures are rare in children and usually result from high-energy trauma.
Treatment guidelines generally are the same as for patellar fractures in adults.
Between 1942 and 1987, 66 children with patellar fractures were treated.
Exclusion of those with <2-year follow-up, osteochondral fractures, or incomplete records left 24 patients for long-term follow-up.
Overall results were good in 13, fair in eight, and poor in three.
Children with fractures of the ipsilateral femur and/or tibia and those with comminuted, displaced fractures had the poorest results.
