- Surgical management of grade 3 medial knee injuries combined with cruciate ligament injuries. Koga, Hideyuki; Muneta, Takeshi; Yagishita, Kazuyoshi; Ju, Young-Jin; Sekiya, Ichiro // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Jan2012, Vol. 20 Issue 1, p88
Purpose: Although various surgical procedures have attempted to restore valgus stability in medial knee injuries, so far none has achieved satisfactory results. The purpose of this study was to assess clinical outcome for patients with grade 3 valgus instability who were treated according to our...
- In vivo length patterns of the medial collateral ligament during the stance phase of gait. Fang Liu; Gadikota, Hemanth R.; Kozánek, Michal; Hossein, Ali; Bing Yue; Gill, Thomas J.; Rubash, Harry E.; Guoan Li // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;May2011, Vol. 19 Issue 5, p719
Purpose: The function of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) during gait has not been investigated. Our objective was to measure the kinematics of the medial collateral ligament during the stance phase of gait on a treadmill using a combined dual fluoroscopic imaging system (DFIS) and MRI...
- Medial Collateral Ligament "Tibial" Injuries: Indication for Acute Repair. Wilson, Timothy C.; Satterfield, William H.; Johnson, Darren L. // Orthopedics;Apr2004, Vol. 27 Issue 4, p389
Emphasizes that complete avulsions of the superficial and deep medial collateral ligament from the tibia with disruption of the meniscal coronary ligament should be managed with acute surgical repair for maximum benefit. Mechanism of injury of the medial collateral ligament (MCL); Treatment for...
- Biomechanical consequences of a posterior root tear of the lateral meniscus: stabilizing effect of the meniscofemoral ligament. Forkel, Philipp; Herbort, Mirco; Schulze, Martin; Rosenbaum, Dieter; Kirstein, Lars; Raschke, Michael; Petersen, Wolf // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;May2013, Vol. 133 Issue 5, p621
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of different types of lateral meniscus root tears in terms of tibiofemoral contact stress. Methods: Ten porcine knees each underwent five different testing conditions with the menisci intact, a simulated lateral posterior root tear...
- Medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty with Miller-Galante II prosthesis: mid-term clinical and radiographic results. Koskinen, Esa; Paavolainen, Pekka; Eskelinen, Antti; Harilainen, Arsi; Sandelin, Jerker; Ylinen, Pekka; Tallroth, Kaj; Remes, Ville // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;May2009, Vol. 129 Issue 5, p617
The purpose of our study was to evaluate retrospectively the mid-term results of the Miller-Galante II (Zimmer, Warsaw, USA) unicondylar knee arthoplasty (UKA). The study included 46 patients with medial UKAs. Mean follow-up time was 7.0 years (range 2.7â€“13.1 years). Survival rate of the...
- The Anatomy of the Medial Part of the Knee. Laprade, Robert F.; Hauge Engebretsen, Anders; Ly, Thuan V.; Johansen, Steinar; Wentorf, Fred A.; Engebretsen, Lars // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Sep2007, Vol. 89-A Issue 9, p2000
Background: While the anatomy of the medial part of the knee has been described qualitatively, quantitative descriptions of the attachment sites of the main medial knee structures have not been reported. The purpose of the present study was to verify the qualitative anatomy of medial knee...
