Can assist: Certain fracture patterns of the femoral condyle can be assisted by using arthroscopy. It can judge whether out not the fracture is significantly displaced or if there is an associate cartilage damage. Some fractures can be percutaneusly resuced and screws place tohold the fragments in place and not require an open procedure.
