OBJECTIVE: Medial tibial condyle bone marrow edema (BME), associated with soft tissue edema (STe) surrounding the medial collateral ligament, was incidentally observed in MRI examinations of young and athletic individuals. The aim of the present study was to 1. Prospectively investigate the association between these findings and coexistence of localized pain, and 2. Explore the possible contribution of the tibial morphology to its pathogenesis. METHODS: The medial tibial condyle crest was evaluated in 632 knee MRI examinations...

In 21 animals, chronic swelling on the lateral aspect of the stifle also known as «perigonitis», «stable-syndrome» or «bursitis bicipitalis femoris» were evaluated. Ultrasonography showed increased fluid in the distal subtendinous bursa of the biceps femoris muscle and structural changes in the tendons, muscles, subcutis and fasciae. Soft tissue swelling and an irregular contour of the lateral tibial condyle were typical signs on radiographs. Macroscopic changes were found at the insertion of the biceps femoris muscle, the distal subtendinous bursa of the biceps femoris muscle, the lateral collateral ligament of the stifle, the origin of muscles on the lateral femoral condyle and the lateral tibial condyle...

The purpose of this article is to describe a sonographically guided technique to perform therapeutic injection into the medial collateral ligament bursa. Scans are performed using a high-frequency linear transducer with the scan plane corresponding to the anatomic coronal plane. The transducer is positioned along the medial aspect of the knee; a 25-gauge needle is placed along the inferior border of the bursa; and a standardized therapeutic mixture (anesthetic and long-active corticosteroid) is injected. Distention of the bursa is the determining factor for a successful injection...

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is made up of different components and spans the medial aspect of the knee. With injuries the superficial or deep and posterior components may be involved. A variety of conditions including MCL bursitis, medial osteoarthritis, medial cellulitis, medial bursitis, medial meniscal cyst, meniscocapsular separation, and retinacular tear may present with high signal surrounding the MCL fibers and simulate an MCL tear.

Cystic lesions around the knee are a diverse group of entities, frequently encountered during routine MRI of the knee. These lesions range from benign cysts to complications of underlying diseases such as infection, arthritis, and malignancy. MRI is the technique of choice in characterizing lesions around the knee: to confirm the cystic nature of the lesion, to evaluate the anatomical relationship to the joint and surrounding tissues, and to identify associated intra-articular disorders. We will discuss the etiology, clinical presentation, MRI findings, and differential diagnosis of various cystic lesions around the knee including meniscal and popliteal (Baker's) cysts, intra-articular and extra-articular ganglia, intra-osseous cysts at the insertion of the cruciate ligaments and meniscotibial attachments, proximal tibiofibular joint cysts, degenerative cystic lesions (subchondral cyst), cystic lesions arising from the bursae (pes anserine, prepatellar, superficial and deep infrapatellar, iliotibial, tibial collateral ligament, and suprapatellar), and lesions that may mimic cysts around the knee including normal anatomical recesses...

This review presents a comprehensive illustrated overview of the wide variety of cystic lesions around the knee. The aetiology, clinical presentation, MRI appearances and differential diagnosis are discussed. Bursae include those related to the patella as well as pes anserine, tibial collateral ligament, semimembranosus-tibial collateral ligament, iliotibial and fibular collateral ligament-biceps femoris. The anatomical extension, imaging features and clinical significance of meniscal cysts are illustrated...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the prevalence of periarticular lesions in older persons with or without knee pain, and to assess the association of these lesions with knee pain. METHODS: Subjects ages 45 years and older, with or without knee pain, were recruited from Veterans Affairs medical centers and from the community. Weight-bearing posteroanterior, skyline, and lateral radiographs were obtained in all subjects. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: those with radiographic OA (ROA) and knee pain (n = 376), those with ROA and no knee pain (n = 51), and those with neither ROA nor knee pain (n = 24)...

The uncommon causes of anterior knee pain should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of a painful knee when treatment of common origins become ineffective. A case is presented in which the revised diagnosis of infrapatellar contracture syndrome was made after noting delayed progress in the rehabilitation of an active female patient with a presumed anterior horn medial meniscus tear and a contracted patellar tendon. The patient improved after the treatment program was augmented with closed manipulation under arthroscopy and infrapatellar injection of both corticosteroids and a local anesthetic...

Sports medicine is the science of caring for the medical and surgical needs of athletes and their injuries. Injuries of the upper extremity were dealt with in Part I in a previous article. Part II deals with injuries of the lower extremity. Trochanteric bursitis and hamstring strains are treated with rest, rehabilitation, and correction of training errors. Patellofemoral pain syndromes require accurate diagnosis and usually a rehabilitative program. Injuries to the medial collateral ligament are very common, but can be associated with tears of the meniscus and cruciate ligaments...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to describe the MR imaging characteristics of semimembranosus-tibial collateral ligament (SMTCL) bursitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients (37-68 years old) with medial joint pain and presumed internal derangements of the knee underwent MR imaging. Fluid collections around the SMTCL were found prospectively in five patients. Our retrospective evaluation of recent MR imaging cases that had been previously diagnosed as pes anserinus bursitis revealed 10 additional cases with similar findings...

Data from these studies have resulted in a modified implant technique which has taken into consideration the salient points from this and previous studies. Ongoing animal studies will provide a better understanding of the long-term performance of the material in the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament positions. Additional studies will be implemented as new techniques and applications evolve. The key conclusions of this study are as follows: 1. This prosthetic ligament system is not intended to match the mechanical properties of the normal anterior cruciate ligament in dogs...

The anserina bursa is located on the medial surface of the tibia deep to the tendons of the sartorius, gracilis, and semimembranosus muscles and superficial to the insertion of the tibial collateral ligament. Knee pain, a palpable swelling of the bursa, and tenderness over the medial anterior aspect of the tibia just below the knee are the hallmarks of anserina bursitis. In a three-year period, 24 patients with anserina bursitis were seen in a rheumatology clinic. All but one were women, 18 were obese, and only four were under 50 years old...

Computed tomography (CT) resulted in a diagnostic accuracy of 89.2% and 96.1% for medial and lateral meniscal lesions, respectively, in 109 patients who underwent surgery after a direct CT study of the knee joint for a clinically suspected meniscal lesion. The meniscal lesions were the only pathologic condition found in 59 patients, while in 35 patients they were associated with various lesions of the cruciate ligaments (31 cases) and collateral ligaments (15 cases) and with cystic bursitis (6 cases). In the remaining 15 patients, the menisci were normal, but in eight of these cases, lesions of other knee joint structures were present...

In 91 patients evaluated between 1982 and 1985, tibial collateral ligament bursitis was diagnosed. This entity has not been described since the work of Brantigan and Voshell in 1943. The diagnosis was based on the findings of tenderness over the tibial collateral ligament at the joint line, without a history of mechanical symptoms. With a nonsurgical program, 62% of the patients improved and subsequently required no further treatment. Fifteen percent did not improve; of this group, one-third had a negative arthrogram or arthroscopy...

The bursa of the tibial collateral ligament (TCL) may be visualized at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging when it becomes distended with fluid. In the authors' experience, this finding signifies a pathologic condition either in the medial capsuloligamentous complex or in the bursa itself. Such a finding may indicate TCL bursitis. TCL bursitis can be suspected in the setting of isolated pain in the medial joint line in the absence of mechanical symptoms. Prolonged relief of symptoms after injection of steroid into the bursa is supportive of the diagnosis...
