There is no approach associated with the therapy you selected. However, the list below shows all available approaches.
Make sure to avoid the neurovascular structures around the knee (common peroneal nerve, deep peroneal nerve, and popliteal artery).
Make a straight incision lateral to the patella. Then, open the deep fascia anterior to the ilio-tibial tract.
The arthroscopic approach is only recommended in minimally, or nondisplaced, fractures in young patients. Advanced experience in arthroscopic surgery is essential.
Identify Gerdy’s tubercle. Make a straight incision about 5cm in length starting posteriorly to Gerdy’s tubercle and running distally and anteriorly.
With the knee in slight flexion make a straight or slightly curved incision running from the medial epicondyle towards the posteromedial edge of the tibia.
The posteromedial side can be approached without exposing and dissecting the neurovascular structures.
