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 […]

Use of Platelet-Rich Plasma Immediately After an Injury Did Not Improve Ligament Healing, and Increasing Platelet Concentrations Was Detrimental in an In Vivo Animal Model

Background: Limited information in basic science and clinical trials exists to determine if ligament healing may be accelerated with the use of biological adjuvants, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). However, there has been widespread acceptance of PRP for use in clinical practice, despite an inadequate understanding of its biological […]
