Medial Patellar Instability: A Systematic Review of the Literature of Outcomes After Surgical Treatment

2017 Arthroscopy

Medial patellar instability is a disabling condition that is often misdiagnosed. In 1988, Hughston and Deese described medial patellar instability as a complication of a lateral retinacular release procedure and reported that patients had increased pain and instability after a lateral retinacular release. Several studies have since reported […]

Medial Patellar Instability: Treatment and Outcomes

Historically, a lateral retinacular release was a popular mode of treatment for a variety of knee conditions, including lateral patellar instability, anterior knee pain, and patellar chondromalacia. This procedure was often preferred because of the reported low complication rates. In 1988, Hughston and Deese described medial patellar instability as […]

Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Medial Side of the Knee and Their Surgical Implications

SPORTS MEDICINE ARTHROSCOPIC REVIEW 2015

In order to reconstruct the medial knee to restore the original biomechanical function of its ligamentous structures, a thorough understanding of its anatomic placement and relationship with surrounding structures is required. To restore the knee to normal kinematics, the diagnosis and surgical approach have to be aligned, to successfully reconstruct the […]

Repair and Reconstruction of Medialand Lateral-sided Knee Injuries

AAOS INSTRUCTIONAL COURSE LECTURES 2015

Surgical treatment of medial and lateral knee injuries using repair and/or reconstruction techniques is often necessary to restore knee ligament stability and optimize function. Successful execution ofthese repairs and reconstructions requires a sound understanding ofbasic anatomy and biomechanics. Against this backdrop, numerous repair and reconstruction techniques have been developed. Although me- […]

Intramedullary Tibial Nailing Reduces the Attachment Area and Ultimate Load of the Anterior Medial Meniscal Root

AJSM 2015

Intramedullary (IM) nailing is the treatment of choice among orthopaedic surgeons for tibial shaft fractures. However, because of the close proximity of the nail’s insertion site to the anterior medial (AM) meniscal root on the tibial plateau, there is increased risk of iatrogenic injury to the meniscal root during nailing. The purpose of this […]

sMCL – Anatomic Augmented Repair vs Anatomic Reconsturction

AJSM 2013

When surgical intervention is required for a grade 3 superficial medial collateral ligament (sMCL) tear, there is no consensus on the optimal surgical treatment. Anatomic augmented repairs and anatomic reconstructions for treatment of grade 3 sMCL tears have not been biomechanically validated or compared. This study hypothesized that anatomic sMCL augmented repairs and anatomic […]

Management of Injuries to the Medial Side of the Knee

JOURNAL OF PORTHOPAEDIC AND SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPY 2012

This study went into detail about the current concepts of the treatment of medial knee injuries.  Comprehensive anatomy, clinically relevant biomechanics, and treatment of both acute and chronic medial-sided knee injuries were reviewed.  A very detailed non-operative and post-operative rehabilitation protocol for medial knee injuries was also provided based on […]

Development of an Anatomic Medial Knee Reconstruction

KSSTA 2012

The main static stabilizers of the medial knee are the superficial medial collateral and posterior oblique ligaments. A number of reconstructive techniques have been advocated including one we describe here. However, whether these reconstructions restore function and stability is unclear.

Structural Properties of the Primary Medial Knee Ligaments

AJSM 2010

The structural properties of the i 1 ndividual components of the superficial medial collateral ligament, deep medial collateral ligament, and posterior oblique ligament have not been studied in isolation. To define the necessary strength requirements for an anatomic medial knee reconstruction, knowledge of these structural properties is necessary.

Medial Knee Injury Part 1, Static Function of the Individual Components of the Main Medial Knee Structures

AJSM 2009

There is a lack of knowledge on the primary and secondary static stabilizing functions of the posterior oblique ligament (POL), the proximal and distal divisions of the superficial medial collateral ligament (sMCL), and the meniscofemoral and meniscotibial portions of the deep medial collateral ligament (MCL).
