Abstract

The authors present a review of 37 patients (mean age 15 years), treated in our Institute from 1974 to 1984 for an apophysis detachment. The lesions were mainly due to indirect trauma. The results verify that a complete functional activity may be achieved also by an incomplete reduction of bone fragments and that conservative treatment is sufficient for almost all patients.
