The article presents the case of an adolescent patient with posterior and posterolateral instability of the knee for whom nonoperative treatment had failed. The patient was successfully treated with use of a physeal sparing intra-articular reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament and an extra-articular reconstruction of the posterolateral structures. Information about the reconstruction of the posterolateral structures is discussed.

    This is the first case report of a deep soft-tissue leiomyoma with intraarticular localization within the knee joint. A 14-year-old girl presented with a painless mass in the dorsal aspect of her knee which she had noticed some 9 months earlier. While on plain radiographs no bony lesions were...

    The aim of this study was to compare the results of two different methods of posterolateral corner reconstruction (fibular head tunnel versus tibial tunnel), performed at the same time as a posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Between January 1999 and October 2003, 47 patients underwent...

    When highly conforming polyethylene inlays were introduced into total knee arthroplasty (TKA), they were characterized as adding anteroposterior stability to the reconstructed knee. The aim of this study was to examine the patellofemoral pressure with the designs of a highly conforming and a...

    Complete dislocation of the knee is a rare injury, and is frequently associated with injuries to other structures in the popliteal fossa. Prompt recognition of associated popliteal artery disruption and early revascularization is paramount for successful and functional results. The necessity for...
