ACL and Posterolateral Corner Injuries


Abstract

The importance of the posterolateral corner (PLC) with respect to knee stability, particularly in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency, has become more apparent in recent years. The purposes of this article are to review the current concepts of PLC injuries and to address their role in the ACL-deficient and […]

Single-Stage Multiple-Ligament Knee Reconstructions for Sports-Related Injuries: Outcomes in 194 Patients


Background:

Outcomes after sports-related multiple-ligament knee reconstructions are limited.

Purpose:

To evaluate outcomes after single-stage surgical treatment of sports-related multiple-ligament knee injuries and to compare outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)–based and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)–based multiple-ligament knee reconstructions.

Study Design:

Case series; Level of evidence, 4.

Methods:

Skeletally mature patients with at least 2 major knee ligaments torn during a […]

A Physeal‐Sparing Fibular Collateral Ligament and Proximal Tibiofibular Joint Reconstruction in a Skeletally Immature Athlete


2016 KSSTA

The purpose of this report was to describe the surgical technique for and outcomes after a modified physeal-sparing posterolateral corner reconstruction in a 12-year-old skeletally immature male with a mid-substance fibular collateral ligament tear, a proximal posterior tibiofibular ligament tear, and an anterior cruciate ligament avulsion fracture of the medial tibial eminence. A […]

An In Vitro Robotic Assessment of the Anterolateral Ligament, Part 2

2016 AJSM

Recent biomechanical studies have demonstrated that an extra-articular lateral knee structure, most recently referred to as the anterolateral ligament (ALL), contributes to overall rotational stability of the knee. However, the effect of anatomic ALL reconstruction (ALLR) in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) has not been biomechanically investigated or validated.

The […]
