Anterolateral Knee Extra-articular Stabilizers

Background: Persistent clinical instability after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction may be associated with injury to the anterolateral structures and has led to renewed interest in anterolateral extra-articular procedures. The influence of these procedures on knee kinematics is controversial.

Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose was to investigate the biomechanical properties of anatomic […]

Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction Techniques, Biomechanics, and Clinical Outcomes: A Systematic Review

2017 Arthroscopy

The description of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) and its effect on controlling internal rotation has led to the development of ALL reconstruction techniques in an effort to better restore native knee biomechanics and stability. As a model, anatomic-based and biomechanically validated reconstructions have led to improved […]

Biomechanical Role of Lateral Structures in Controlling Anterolateral Rotatory Laxity: The Anterolateral Ligament

2017 Elsevier – Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics

Recent renewed interest in the anatomy of the anterolateral complex of the knee, combined with concern regarding persistent instability after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, has led to an expansion of the literature on the biomechanics of many structures of the anterolateral complex of […]

Anatomic Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction of the Knee Leads to Overconstraint at Any Fixation Angle


2016 AJSM

Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are one of the most common injuries among athletes. However, the ability to fully restore rotational stability with ACL reconstruction (ACLR) remains a challenge, as evidenced by the persistence of rotational instability in up to 25% of patients after surgery. Advocacy for reconstruction of the anterolateral ligament […]

Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction Technique: An Anatomic-Based Approach

2016 Arthroscopy

Restoration of anteroposterior laxity after an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has been predictable with traditional open and endoscopic techniques. However, anterolateral rotational stability has been difficult to achieve in a subset of patients, even with appropriate anatomic techniques. Therefore, differing techniques have attempted to address this rotational laxity […]

Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction Technique: An Anatomic-Based Approach

An In Vitro Robotic Assessment of the Anterolateral Ligament, Part 2

2016 AJSM

Recent biomechanical studies have demonstrated that an extra-articular lateral knee structure, most recently referred to as the anterolateral ligament (ALL), contributes to overall rotational stability of the knee. However, the effect of anatomic ALL reconstruction (ALLR) in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) has not been biomechanically investigated or validated.

The […]

An In Vitro Robotic Assessment of the Anterolateral Ligament, Part 1

2016 AJSM

Recent investigations have described the structural and functional behavior of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee through pull-apart and isolated sectioning studies. However, the secondary stabilizing role of the ALL in the setting of a complete anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear has not been fully defined for common simulated clinical examinations, such as […]
