In this review, we examine the current understanding of posterolateral corner (PLC) injuries and treatment methods. We discuss the anatomy of the major structures of the PLC and the biomechanics of how these structures function together as a unit. The diagnosis using physical examination, radiographs, and magnetic resonance imaging is discussed. The development of an anatomic reconstruction technique is then described, along with the surgical technique and rehabilitation protocols. Anatomic-based reconstruction methods and a regimented rehabilitation protocol better restore the native biomechanics of the knee, and improve subjective and objective outcomes at follow-up.
