Resumen

ALBUQUERQUE, Rodrigo Pires e et al. Total knee arthroplasty in a patient with Hoffa fracture pseudarthrosis: case report. Rev. bras. ortop. [online]. 2011, vol.46, n.4, pp.460-463. ISSN 0102-3616.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-36162011000400019.

A rare occurrence of a case of Hoffa fracture pseudarthrosis in an alcoholic patient with genu valgum associated with venous insufficiency who underwent total knee arthroplasty is reported. The literature is reviewed and the main factors for surgical indication of total knee arthroplasty after a fracture of the knee are discussed. Total knee arthroplasty was a viable option in a 60-year-old patient with Hoffa fracture pseudarthrosis and comorbidities.
