Özet

Objective: One of the most common complications following intramedullary nailing of a tibial shaft fracture is anterior knee pain. The etiology of pain remains unclear. Patellar tendon entry point is the most suspected reason for anterior knee pain. This study, sonographically examined the patellar tendons of patients treated via intramedullary nailing.
