Combined Posterior Cruciate Ligament and Superficial Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Reconstruction: Avoiding Tunnel Convergence


Abstract

Combined posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries represent a complex
pathology that requires a thorough clinical and radiographic examination to diagnose and identify all injured structures.
Anatomic reconstruction of the injured ligaments is recommended, including double-bundle PCL reconstruction and
superficial MCL augmentation. In the setting of this complex reconstruction, several technical aspects require […]

Paraskiing Crash and Knee Dislocation With Multiligament Reconstruction and Iliotibial Band Repair


The American Journal of Orthopedics 2017

We describe the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and complications of a 27-year-old male paraskiier who sustained a closed high-velocity knee dislocation after colliding with a tree at a speed of 45 mph and falling 40 feet to the ground. Extensive surgery to repair and recon- struct the knee included open […]

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 […]
