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. […]

Decreased Posterior Tibial Slope Does Not Affect Postoperative Posterior Knee Laxity After Double-Bundle Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Background

Recent clinical studies identified sagittal plane posterior tibial slope as a risk factor for increased postoperative lax- ity after single-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (PCLR).

Purpose/Hypothesis

To retrospectively compare the degree of posterior tibial slope and its effect on posterior tibial translation (PTT) after double-bundle (DB) PCLR. Our null hypothesis was […]

Posterior Tibial Slope and Risk of Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

Background

Recent biomechanical studies have identified sagittal plane posterior tibial slope as a potential risk factor for pos- terior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury because of its effects on the kinematics of the native and surgically treated knee. However, the literature lacks clinical correlation between primary PCL injuries and decreased posterior […]
