Partial articular, simple medial sagittal fracture

Definition

Simple transtrochlear fractures may run through the trochlear groove (13B2.1) or the medial trochlear ridge (13B2.2).

Further characteristics

Most medial condyle fractures in adults feature complex articular comminution. Computed tomography—particularly 3-D CT—can help define the fracture anatomy and facilitate the planning of the surgery.
