Ligamentar knee

F R K Sanders, M Tenhagen, F W Bloemers
A 48-year-old male presented with a painful right knee after a motorcycle accident. Peripheral pulsations in the lower right leg were absent. X-ray indicated a dislocation of the knee. Additional CT-scan revealed a dissection of the popliteal artery. Surgical exploration revealed extensive vascular, neurological and ligamentar damage.

Unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA) have been created to treat primary unicompartmental knee arthritis. They are indicated in case of lower-limb deformity due to unicompartmental arthritis, but not to treat unicompartmental arthritis due to extra-articular deformity. Early failures are do to ligamentar problems or to surgical technical errors. Late failures as wear or loosening are undoubtely delayed by adequate surgical indication and technique. Indeed the 10 years PUC survival is 90%. Patient age is not a selection criteria because both young (50-60 years old) and old (> 80 years old) patients may benefit of a UKA...

BACKGROUND: Meniscofemoral ligaments (MFLs) are recognized as stabilizing and protective structures for the posterolateral meniscocondylar compartment of the knee, and as secondary restraints to tibial posterior translation. PURPOSE AND PATIENTS: We report the 64-row arthro-MDCT findings of 10 patients (8 males, 2 females; mean age 43.8 years) in which the anterior MFL of Humphrey (aMLF) was atypically well delineated by an unusual circumferential effusion of iodine contrast...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Passive hyperextension is a rare mechanism of injury of knee ligaments in clinical practice. The lesions are often complex and no consensus exists about their sequence. Our purpose was to study the mechanical behavior and the anatomical lesions of the knee following passive hyperextension until rupture. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 12 pairs of fresh human cadaveric knees were tested after resection of soft tissue except for the ligaments and the Popliteus muscle...

Ultrasound examinations and stress radiographs of 61 patients with suspected ligamentar lesion of the ankle and knee joints were compared in order to clear, whether radiography could be replaced by sonography. In our experience, the opening of the joint gap can also be adequately demonstrated even without ionizing radiation and the results achieved by ultrasound were nearly as accurate as by X-rays. Being a rather simple, inexpensive and real time method, producing acceptable visual information and practicable on almost all preexisting equipments, sonography is advised for detecting of ligamentar lesions...
