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 […]

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 […]

Overlap Between Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Anterolateral Meniscal Root Insertions

AJSM 2017

Over the past decade, there has been an increasing emphasis on anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction to best restore knee kinematics after an ACL tear. Although studies have shown that the position, size and shape of the ACL insertion site are variable, anatomic single-and double-bundle ACL reconstructions […]

Biologic Approaches for the Treatment of Partial Tears of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most studied structures of the human musculoskeletal system, being the subject of many anatomic and biomechanical studies. While treatment options for complete ruptures of the ACL are well studied, partial ACL tears remain more nebulous in their postinjury treatment course. Partial ACL tears were first described […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Biomechanical Comparison of Anatomic Single- and Double-Bundle Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstructions

AJSM 2013

Arthroscopic identification of the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL) bundle locations of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has facilitated an improved quantitative description of ACL anatomy. Few studies have directly compared the biomechanical laxity of anatomic single-bundle (SB) versus anatomic double-bundle (DB) ACL reconstruction techniques based on precise anatomic descriptions. This study hypothesized that […]
