The [sz] angle was measured as the angle formed by the Blumensaat line and the long axis of the femur [Figure 6].[26] To measure the medial and lateral tibial plateau slopes, we chose the sagittal slice that clearly showed the intercondylar eminence and the attachment of the posterior cruciate ligament.
Standard radiographs showed hypoplasia of the tibial intercondylar eminence and the femoral intercondylar notch (Figures 1(a) and 1(b)).
The tibial portion of the knee joint consists of the tibial plateau, separated into tibial condyles via the intercondylar eminence composed of a lateral and a medial tubercle.
But avulsion fractures of tibial intercondylar eminence is a rare injury mainly affecting the pediatric population between 8 to 14 and is even rarer in adults with very few cases reported in literature.
The tumefaction invaginated under the transverse intermeniscal ligament to the zone of the front horn of lateral meniscus, being in close contact with the anterior tibial intercondylar eminence. The tumorous mass was associated with a mild HFP edema.
Anatomically, the ACL arises from the medial posterior lateral femoral condyle and passes anteriorly and inferiorly through the intercondylar notch attaching to the intercondylar eminence of the posterior tibial plateau (Standring, 2008).
The nutrient foramen of the tibia was found under the soleal line in a 94,33% at an average distance of 117.8mm from the intercondylar eminence to the nutrient foramen (in the superior third of the bone), in the soleal line of the bone in 3,77% and in the lateral border in 1,88%.
Previously, avulsion of the intercondylar eminence was considered a more common injury among children than cruciate ligament tears; the shift in prevalence may simply reflect better diagnostic capabilities, said Dr.

The standard TKA surgical technique for all patients included an anterior midline skin incision with a medial parapatellar approach, extramedullary guides for the tibia with the center of the tibial intercondylar eminence and the true center of the ankle joint as the proximal and distal landmarks, and intramedullary guides for the femur with 5[degrees] or 6[degrees] valgus correction angles.[sup][9]
