Abstract

Atypical fractures are challenging for surgeons, as standard procedures are not applicable [1,2]. An interesting alternative for avulsion fractures of the tibial tubercle is the Bamberg Plate, a selfadjusted calcaneus titanium plate [3,4]. This simple and inexpensive implant was originally developed for displaced fractures of the greater humerus-tuberosity, but has already proved its advantage in various other locations, such as the tibial head or the posterior collum of the acetabulum [3,4].
