Treatment of complication of partial knee replacement

  • This lady had a bilateral partial knee replacement, outside. She complained of pain on walking after 1 week of surgery. X ray was done, which apparently did not reveal any abnormality. Subsequently, the pain increased and further and x-ray evaluation now revealed that there was fracture of medial condyle of tibia on both sides. One side, where the fracture was not much displaced, was fixed with a plate and screws. The other side fracture was badly displaced, and needed conversion to a knee replacement.
