The purpose of this article is to provide a review of coronal fractures of the femoral condyles, known as Hoffa fractures, and to describe a unique fixation modality entailing the use of lag screws in combination with a posterior buttress plate. This case report of a lateral Hoffa fracture focuses on the evaluation, general approach, and surgical management of this subset of distal femoral fractures using this novel technique.
