Avulsion fractures of cruciate ligament are relatively uncommon as most of them are intrasubstance tears. Primary surgical fixation of avulsion fractures is necessary to avoid residual laxity and preserve the native ligaments. Combined anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) avulsion fractures are even rare with very few articles being published in literature. We report a case of simultaneous traumatic avulsion of ACL and PCL from tibial eminence, which was managed by staged surgical fixation with good functional outcome.
