Utilization of Transtibial Centralization Suture Best Minimizes Extrusion and Restores Tibiofemoral Contact Mechanics for Anatomic Medial Meniscal Root Repairs in a Cadaveric Model


Background

Although posterior medial meniscal root (PMMR) repairs are often successful, postoperative meniscal extrusion after a root repair has been identified as a potential clinical problem.

Purpose/Hypothesis

The purpose was to quantitatively evaluate the tibiofemoral contact mechanics and extent of meniscal extrusion after a PMMR repair. It was hypothesized that the addition of a centralization suture (into […]

Biomechanical Evaluation of the Medial Stabilizers of the Patella

2018 AJSM

Lateral patellar dislocations are the second leading cause of traumatic knee hemarthroses, and recurrent patellar dislocations often require surgery. The medial knee structures responsible for stabilization of the patellofemoral joint are the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), the medial patellotibial ligament (MPTL), and the medial patellomeniscal ligament (MPML). Although […]

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 […]

Biomechanical Results of Lateral Extra-articular Tenodesis Procedures of the Knee: A Systematic Review

2016 ARTHROSCOPY

Purpose: To systematically review and compare biomechanical results of lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET) procedures.

Methods: A systematic review was performed using the PubMed, Medline, Embase, and Cochrane databases. The search terms included the following: extraarticular, anterolateral, iliotibial, tenodesis, plasty, augmentation, procedure, recon- struction, technique, biomechanics, kinematic, robot, cadaver, knee, […]
