Introduction: Tibial spine avulsion fracture is rare injury. Various methods have been described to treat these injuries. We are demonstrating the results of arthroscopic fixation of these fractures using strangulation technique.

Materials and Methods: 10 Patients with displaced tibial spine avulsion fractures without other associated ligament injuries were included in the study. Patients underwent arthroscopic fixation using strangulation technique. The postoperative results were analyzed using clinical tests, radiological evaluation and Lysholm score.

Observations and Results: We evaluated all 10 patients at final follow up. Radiographs showed that all fracture healed anatomically and all patients reported no symptoms of instability, such as giving – way episodes, clinical signs of anterior cruciate ligament deficiency were negative. Functional outcome assessed with help of Lhysolm score on each follow up. One patient had restricted range of motion in post op period.

Conclusion: Arthroscopic fixation of tibial spine avulsion fractures using strangulation technique is reliable technique, which gives excellent functional outcomes.
