Limb salvage is a key goal of tumor management around the knee, with surgical, medical, and radiologic treatment options. Primary bone and soft tissue sarcomas are optimally treated in specialist tertiary centers; however, metastatic disease is encountered in all aspects of radiologic practice, with overlap in the management strategies. Both specialist and generalist radiologists therefore need to be familiar with the expected normal appearances following these therapies and be able to recognize potential complications...

Postoperative infections of the knee are uncommon but may occur with joint arthroplasties, fracture fixation, or after arthroscopic procedures. The ultimate diagnosis is made by joint aspiration or tissue sampling. Joint aspiration and tissue sampling can be performed under imaging guidance or intraoperatively. Imaging is an important adjunct to clinical and laboratory findings and should start with radiographs. Cross-sectional imaging including magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, computed tomography (CT), nuclear studies, and ultrasound (US) are frequently used if the diagnosis is in doubt and to evaluate the extent of disease...

REVIEW
Hatice Tuba Sanal, Christian Krestan, Mark Schurz
Related to fractures of and around the knee, inappropriate technical factors related to the surgery, severe comminution of the fracture, early overly arduous rehabilitation of the patient, and patient-related noncompliances may have the potential for the risk of inadequate fixation and other complications. Loss of fixation, malunion/nonunion, infection, arthritis, arthrofibrosis, and symptomatic hardware are among postsurgical complications that may necessitate further reconstructive techniques. In this review, complications that may be encountered in the postsurgical period of fractures involving the patella, supracondylar femur, and tibial plateau are described...

REVIEW
Iman Khodarahmi, Elliot K Fishman, Jan Fritz
Advances in surgical techniques, orthopaedic implant design, and higher demands for improved functionality of the aging population have resulted in a high prevalence of patients with metallic implants about the knee. Total knee arthroplasty, knee-replacing tumor prostheses, and osteosynthesis implants create various imaging artifacts and pose special challenges for the imaging evaluation with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). CT artifacts can be effectively mitigated with metal artifact reduction reconstruction algorithms, dual-energy data acquisition with virtual monoenergetic extrapolation, and three-dimensional postprocessing techniques, such as volume and cinematic rendering...

#18
REVIEW
Jeremiah R Long, David A Rubin
The extensor mechanism of the knee plays an important role in many movements of the lower extremity. Although its main function is to extend the knee, it also stabilizes the patellofemoral joint and resists passive flexion of the knee when landing from jumping. Pathologic conditions of the extensor mechanism can be acute or chronic, and they can negatively affect daily activities. Fortunately, many surgical treatments are available aimed at restoring function to the injured extensor mechanism. Understanding the surgical techniques and common complications of these procedures enables the radiologist to recognize expected and unexpected postoperative imaging appearances...

Ali Naraghi, Dawn H Pearce, Daniel B Whelan, Jaskarndip Chahal
Posterolateral corner (PLC) injuries of the knee are often sustained in combination with anterior or posterior cruciate ligament injuries. A variety of surgical techniques including acute repair, nonanatomical reconstructions, and anatomical reconstructions have been used to treat grade III PLC injuries. Scant literature is available on postoperative imaging of the PLC. This article reviews the more commonly used surgical techniques and the postoperative imaging assessment of the PLC of the knee.

REVIEW
Andrew C Cordle, Don D Williams, Carol L Andrews
Meniscal surgery is commonplace. Patients who have had prior surgery may return for additional imaging for continued or new pain, limited range of motion, or interval injury. Accurate interpretation of postoperative imaging requires a clear understanding of the normal meniscal anatomy and biomechanics. Surgical goals and current surgical techniques impact the imaging appearance. These techniques are reviewed in the context of the various meniscal tear patterns. Multiple imaging modalities may be used in patient assessment with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging providing key information regarding the integrity of the meniscal repair...
