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) […]

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 […]
