The article offers information on the knee associated medial structures and medial collateral ligament injuries. It mentions that the largest knee medial structure was the tibial collateral ligament consisting of two tibial attachments and one femoral attachment. It adds that in obtaining the medical structures and diagnosis injury, the knee physical examination was the most suitable. It says that if the intra-articular adhesions treatment are not develop the motion of the knee can be achieved.

    To perform an open-wedge high-tibial osteotomy (HTO), the medial proximal tibia is frequently exposed by partial distal release of the overlying insertion of the medial collateral ligament (MCL). Biomechanically, any release of the MCL can increase knee laxity when valgus stress is applied....

    Background: The femoral peel to expose a difficult knee was first described by Windsor and Insall in the mid-1980s. This surgical exposure consists of a complete soft tissue subperiosteal peel of the femur. It includes the detachment of the origin of the medial and lateral collateral ligaments....
