These lesions commonly occur in association with other ligament injuries, making de- cisions regarding treatment challenging. Grade III posterolateral corner injuries [...]

Improving Outcomes for Posterolateral Knee Injuries

JOURNAL OF ORTHOPAEDIC RESEARCH MONTH 2014 The posterolateral corner of the knee was noted for both its complex anatomy and diagnostic challenges. This study breaks down the understanidng of the posterolateral knee into five primary areas: surgical approach and relevant [...]

Outcomes of an Anatomic Posterolateral Knee Reconstruction

JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY 2010 Chronic posterolateral knee injuries often result in substantial patient morbidity and functional instability.  The clinical stability and functional outcomes following anatomic reconstructions in patients with a chronic posterolateral knee injury have not been [...]

Assessment of a Goat Model of Posterolateral Knee Instability

JOURNAL OF ORTHOPAEDIC RESEARCH 2008 The development of an in vivo animal model of posterolateral knee instability is desired for devising effective interventions for this injury. Sequential sectioning of the popliteus tendon, lateral collateral ligament, and lateral capsule was done [...]

The Anatomy of the Posterior Aspect of the Knee

JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY 2007 The orthopaedic literature contains relatively little quantitative information regarding the anatomy of the posterior aspect of the knee. The purpose of the present study was to provide a detailed description of, and to [...]

Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Lateral Side of the Knee

SPORTS MEDICINE ARTHROSCOPIC REVIEW 2006 The posterolateral corner (PLC) of the knee is a critical element for a functional lower extremity. It consists of an array of complex ligamentous and musculotendinous structures. The primary function of the PLC is to [...]
