Editorial Commentary: Arthroscopic Outcomes Are Equal to Open Popliteus Tendon Reconstructions, but Do Not Forget That the Goal Is a Stable Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction


Abstract:

Arthroscopic popliteus tendon reconstructions were found to be equally as efficacious as open popliteus reconstructions in restoring external rotation stability. However, when the procedure was combined with a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction, the PCL reconstruction still had increases of 4 to 5 mm of posterior tibial translation in side-to-side differences on posterior stress radiographs. […]

Tibial Slope and Its Effect on Graft Force in Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstructions


Background:

A flattened posterior tibial slope may cause excessive unwanted stress on the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction graft and place patients at risk for PCL reconstruction graft failure. To date, there is a paucity of biomechanical studies evaluating the effect of posterior tibial slope on the loading properties of single-bundle (SB) and double-bundle (DB) […]

Posterior Cruciate Ligament: Current Concepts Review

ABJS 2018

The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is the largest and strongest ligament in the human knee, and the primary posterior stabilizer. Recent anatomy and biomechanical studies have provided an improved understanding of PCL function. PCL injuries are typically combined with other ligamentous, meniscal and chondral injuries. Stress radiography […]
