Morphology of the Tibial Insertion of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament
- Topography of the Femoral Attachment of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament. Forsythe, Brian; Harner, Christopher; Martins, Cesar A. Q.; Wei Shen; Lopes, Jr., Osmar V.; Fu, Freddie H. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Mar2009 Supplement, Vol. 91-A, p89
BACKGROUND: The success of posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has varied. The objective of this study was to determine quantitatively and qualitatively the topography and osseous landmarks of the femoral footprints of the anterolateral and posteromedial bundles of the posterior cruciate...
- Double Compared with Single-Bundle Open Inlay Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in a Cadaver Model. Whiddon, David R.; Zehms, Chad T.; Miller, Mark D.; Quinby, J. Scott; Montgomery, Scott L.; Sekiya, Jon K. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Sep2008, Vol. 90-A Issue 9, p1820
Background: There is considerable controversy regarding whether a double-bundle reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament is superior to single-bundle techniques. The purpose of this study was to compare posterior tibial translation and external rotation following double and...
- Single-bundle posterior tibial inlay PCL repairs prove easier, more anatomic. Rapp, Susan M. // Orthopedics Today;Mar2010, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p26
The article offers information on the single-bundle posterior tibial inlay surgical technique for posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) repair.
- A Clinically Relevant Assessment of Posterior Cruciate Ligament and Posterolateral Corner Injuries. Sekiya, Jon K.; Whiddon, David R.; Zehms, Chad T.; Miller, Mark D. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Aug2008, Vol. 90-A Issue 8, p1621
Background: The treatment of symptomatic posterior cruciate ligament injuries of the knee is controversial. Identification of concomitant injuries of the posterolateral corner is important to optimize surgical and clinical outcomes, although this diagnosis is sometimes difficult. The purpose of...
- PERSPECTIVE. Dodds, Julie A. // Orthopedics Today;Apr2011, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p44
The author comments on the approach used by Christopher D. Harner of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Center for Sports Medicine to manage posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries by considering the anatomy and biomechanics of PCL.
- The isometry of two different paths for remnant-preserving posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Jung, Ho-Joong; Kim, Jin; Lee, Han; Koo, Seungbum; Chang, Seung-Hwan; Jung, Young; Lee, Sang // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;May2013, Vol. 21 Issue 5, p1029
Purpose: It is reported that the length of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) fibres increases as the knee flexes, and the magnitude of the length change reaches up to 9.8 mm throughout the range of motion, which exceeds the range of failure strain. Therefore, we postulated that a...
- Simulated Pivot-Shift Testing with Single and Double-Bundle Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstructions. Markolf, Keith L.; Park, Samuel; Jackson, Steven R.; McAllister, David R. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Aug2008, Vol. 90-A Issue 8, p1681
Background: One of the principal rationales for performing a double-bundle reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament is the suggestion that it may be superior to a single-bundle reconstruction in restoring a normal pivot-shift sign. The purpose of this study was to measure the abilities...
- An isolated rupture of the posterior cruciate ligament results in reduced preoperative knee function in comparison with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Årøen, Asbjørn; Sivertsen, Einar; Owesen, Christian; Engebretsen, Lars; Granan, Lars // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;May2013, Vol. 21 Issue 5, p1017
Purpose: To investigate differences in preoperative knee function (Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score, KOOS), the time period from injury to surgery, and associated injuries when comparing primary isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)...
- Failed PCL surgery syndrome leads to an increasing number of revisions. Rapp, Susan M. // Orthopaedics Today Europe;Jul/Aug2010, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p17
The article reports on a study which suggests that failed posterior cruciate ligament surgery syndrome has caused the increasing number of primary posterior cruciate ligament reconstructions in a Taiwanese hospital.
