Abstract:

Historically described as the “dark side of the knee,” the posterolateral corner of the knee has been a significant focus of anatomic, biomechanical, and clinical outcomes research due to poor treatment outcomes for these injuries before improvements over the […]

Posterolateral corner of the knee: an expert consensus statement on diagnosis, classification, treatment, and rehabilitation

2018 Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy

The posterolateral corner (PLC) was once considered the “dark side” of the knee, and it was not until recent times that consistent anatomic and biomechanical descriptions aided in improved outcomes. Several factors may have contributed to previous […]

The Influence of Graft Tensioning Sequence on Tibiofemoral Orientation During Bicruciate and Posterolateral Corner Knee Ligament Reconstruction

2018 AJSM

Background: During multiple knee ligament reconstructions, the graft tensioning order may influence the final tibiofemoral orientation and corresponding knee kinematics. Nonanatomic tibiofemoral orientation may result in residual knee instability, altered joint loading, and an increased propensity for graft failure.

Purpose: To biomechanically evaluate the effect of different graft […]

The Influence of Graft Tensioning Sequence on Tibiofemoral Orientation During Bicruciate and Posterolateral Corner Knee Ligament Reconstruction

Anatomic Posterolateral Corner Reconstruction

Arthroscopy Techniques 2016

Posterolateral corner injuries represent a complex injury pattern, with damage to important coronal and rotatory stabilizers of the knee. These lesions commonly occur in association with other ligament injuries, making decisions regarding treatment challenging. Grade III posterolateral corner injuries result in significant instability and have poor outcomes […]

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 anatomy, diagnosis, clinical relevant biomechanics, natural history, and surgical treatment.

Avoiding Tunnel Collisions Between Fibular Collateral Ligament and ACL Posterolateral Bundle Reconstruction

KSSTA 2011

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the risk of tunnel collisions of the fibular collateral ligament (FCL) and posterolateral bundle anterior cruciate ligament(PLB-ACL) tunnels during a combined FCL and doubledundle (DB) ACL reconstruction.

Methods: Thirty-six 4th-generation synthetic femurs (Sawbones, Pacific Research Laboratories, Vashon, WA) were utilized, and two different femur sizes were […]

Outcomes of Treatment of Acute Grade-III Isolated and Combined Posterolateral Knee Injuries

JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY 2011

Few studies have reported the outcomes of surgical treatment of an acute grade-III posterolateral knee injury. Our purpose was to report the objective stability and subjective outcomes for a prospective series of patients with an acute grade-III posterolateral knee injury treated with anatomic repair and/or reconstruction of all injured […]

Analysis of the Static Function of the Popliteus Tendon and Evaluation of an Anatomic Reconstruction

AJSM 2010

The popliteus tendon has important dynamic and static stabilizing functions at the knee. Evaluation of its static role as the ‘‘fifth ligament’’ of the knee and a subsequent analysis of a popliteus tendon reconstruction has not been performed.

The popliteus tendon has important primary stabilization roles at the knee. The authors also […]
