    In 2000–2012, the Center of Traumatology of the Republican Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Tatarstan treated 145 patients with different types of intra-articular fractures of the knee joint. All patients underwent transosseous osteosynthesis (TOOS) with external fixation devices. They studied the results of treatment among 136 patients out of 145. The observation period was from 1 to 12 years. The results were evaluated on the basis of clinical X-ray examination data of patients. Thus, the analysis of the long-term results after the treatment of 136 patients with different kinds and types of intra-articular fractures of the knee region showed good reposition capabilities of TOOS by external fixation devices. In all cases, reposition was achieved on the operating table. Excellent and good results were noted in 118 of 136 fractures, which made 86.8%. Positive results obtained in most cases allow to consider this method of treatment as the method of choice for intra-articular fractures of knee joint area. TOOS by external fixation devices provides an accurate reposition and a stable fixation of fractures, and it is the gentlest method of surgical treatment. TOOS by external fixation devices can be used for various types of knee joint fractures.
