Arthroscopic Complete Posterior Capsulotomy for Knee Flexion Contracture

2018 Arthroscopy

Knee flexion contracture is a clinically important complication that can be observed after trauma, after knee surgery, or as a result of osteoarthritis. When it is left untreated, knee shearing forces increase not only in the affected joint but also in the contralateral knee, leading to mechanical overload […]

Quantitative radiographic assessment of the anatomic attachment sites of the anterior and posterior complexes of the proximal tibiofibular joint

2018 KSSTA

Purpose Quantitative guidelines for radiographic identification of the anterior and posterior ligaments of the proximal tibiofibular joint have not been well defined. The purpose of this study was to provide reproducible, quantitative descriptions of radiographic landmarks identifying the anterior and posterior […]

Arthroscopic Posteromedial Capsular Release

2016 Arthroscopy

Post-traumatic or postsurgical flexion contractures of the knee can significantly limit function and lead to gait abnormalities. In this setting, interventions to regain full extension may include bracing, physical therapy, and open or arthroscopic surgery. Open surgical approaches to restore full motion often demand extensive recovery and promote […]

The Role of the Oblique Popliteal Ligament and Other Structures in Preventing Knee Hyperextension

AJSM 2010

Ligament restraints to terminal knee extension are poorly understood. This study hypothesized (1) as with other motions of the knee, genu recurvatum is limited primarily by a named, identifiable structure, and (2) as the largest static structure of the posterior knee, the oblique popliteal ligament is uniquely suited to act as a checkrein to knee hyperextension.

The greatest […]

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 propose a standard nomenclature for, the anatomy of the posterior aspect of the knee.
