Aim: This present study focus on advantages and complications associated with fixation technique for the management of patellar fracture. Material and Methods: 50 patients with patellar fractures treated by cannulated cancellous screw with tension band wiring. Result: The most common age group in our study was 41-50 years. Among 50 patients 37 were male and 13 were female. Fracture due to indirect injury was 64% and direct trauma was 36%. Outcome of our study was 90% as excellent, 8% as good and 2% poor. Conclusion: According to our study management and early mobilization of displaced transverse patellar fracture by cannulated cancellous screw and tension band wiring showed better result.
