Objective: To investigate effect of miniature plate internal fixation in the treatment of patella fracture. Methods: From January 2019 to January 2020, 11 patients with patella fracture were treated with miniature plate fixation and clinical databases were retrospectively reviewed. The perioperative and postoperative outcomes were included. Results: The average operation and hospital stay time was 45 min and 7 days respectively. Range of Motion (ROM), Knee Society Scores (KSS) and Lysholm scores was related to a greater increase. No patients have nonunion, infection and revision. The results showed that miniature plate internal fixation was related to greater decreases in incidence of complications and increases in postoperative Range of Motion (ROM), and Knee Society Score (KSS) function and Lysholm scores. Conclusion: In this study, miniature plate internal fixation technology for the treatment of patella fracture has the advantages of simple operation, rapid recovery, and better perioperative and postoperative outcomes.
