REVIEW
Pierce Johnson, Sean M Mitchell, Simon Görtz
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To highlight current and established concepts regarding PCL injury and reconstruction. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent biomechanical and clinical studies have brought attention to improved surgical techniques and clinical outcomes of PCL reconstruction. In contrast to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries occur much less frequently and have traditionally been treated non-operatively. Even when a PCL injury meets operative indications, outcomes of PCL reconstruction historically do not match the success rates of ACL reconstruction procedures...

Krishn Khanna, Abhinav Janghala, Nirav K Pandya
Background: Posterior hamstring harvest has been described in the adult population in a limited fashion, but no study is available describing the use of posterior hamstring harvest in an active pediatric and adolescent cohort. At times, surgeons may be faced with a challenging anterior harvest due to patient anatomic characteristics, particularly the anatomic features and size of the pes tendons. Clinicians need to have multiple harvest approaches at their disposal. Complications with hamstring harvest such as premature graft transection are more problematic in this population due to higher failure rates with allograft tissue...

Nicholas A Trasolini, George F Rick Hatch
Treatment of posterior cruciate ligament injuries remains controversial, particularly in the case of partial or incomplete tears in the context of a multiple ligament-injured knee. Suture augmentation, or internal bracing, has been shown in other ligament and tendon repairs or reconstructions to provide stable biomechanics and facilitate early return to activity. In the knee, suture augmentation has previously been used for the treatment of medial collateral ligament tears and in the support of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions...

Objective: To evaluate the accuracy of radiographs in determining integrity of the posterior femoral cortex following ACL reconstruction. Methods: Fifty adult volunteers undergoing primary arthroscopic transtibial ACL reconstructions were prospectively enrolled into this study. Plain radiographs and fine-cut CT of the operative knee were obtained post-operatively. Three blinded orthopaedic surgeons were asked to measure the distance from the femoral tunnel to the posterior cortex on lateral radiographs...

Intra-articular tibial plateau fractures can present a surgical challenge due to complex injury patterns and compromised soft tissue. The treatment goal is to spare the soft tissue and an anatomical reconstruction of the tibial articular surface. Depending on the course of the fracture, a fracture-specific access strategy is recommended to provide correct positioning of the plate osteosynthesis. While the anterolateral approach is used in the majority of lateral tibial plateau fractures, only one third of the joint surface is visible; however, posterolateral fragments require an individual approach, e...

PURPOSE: To investigate the correlation between posterior tibial slope (PTS) and tibial tunnel widening after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R). METHODS: Twenty-five patients underwent anatomic single-bundle ACL-R using quadriceps tendon autograft. Six months after surgery, each patient underwent high-resolution computed tomography (CT). Tibial tunnel aperture location was evaluated using a grid method. Medial and lateral PTS (°) was measured based on a previously described method...

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) ruptures account for 1% to 44% of all acute ligament injuries of the knee. In this paper we wanted to try out a system for femural fixation. Hamstring tendons are harvested and standard tibial tunnel is prepared using the transtibial PCL guide; by identifying the PCL footprint, the femoral half tunnel 27 to 30 mm with in-out technique is performed. The femoral rod of a curve cross-pin system is inserted into the anterolateral access within the femoral half tunnel. The guide block is placed 2...

OBJECTIVE: To correlate MRI findings of patients with posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury and surgical management. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective search yielded 79 acute PCL injuries (36 ± 16 years old, 21 F, 58 M). Two independent readers graded PCL tear location (proximal, middle, or distal third) and severity (low-grade or high-grade partial/complete) and evaluated injury of other knee structures. When available, operative reports were examined and the performed surgical procedure was compared with injury grade, location, and presence of associated injuries...

Arthrofibrosis can be a devastating complication after ligamentous knee reconstruction. Beyond early range of motion (ROM), manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) and arthroscopic lysis of adhesions (LOAs) are the most frequently employed interventions for the condition. There is a paucity of data regarding predictive factors of arthrofibrosis requiring MUA and LOA, and even less data regarding changes in validated patient-reported outcome measures following the procedure. A retrospective case-control study was performed at an academic, urban Level I trauma center of patients that developed arthrofibrosis requiring MUA and LOA following ligamentous reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Ramp lesions were initially defined as a tear of the peripheral attachment of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus at the meniscocapsular junction. The separate biomechanical roles of the meniscocapsular and meniscotibial attachments of the posterior medial meniscus have not been fully delineated. PURPOSE: To evaluate the biomechanical effects of meniscocapsular and meniscotibial lesions of the posterior medial meniscus in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-deficient and ACL-reconstructed knees and the effect of repair of ramp lesions...

BACKGROUND: Until now, there has been a lack of in vivo analysis of the correlation between bony morphological features and laxity values after an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. METHODS: Forty-two patients who underwent ACL-reconstruction were enrolled. Static laxity was evaluated as: antero-posterior displacement and internal-external rotation at 30° and 90° of flexion (AP30, AP90, IE30, IE90) and varus-valgus rotation at 0° and 30° of flexion (VV0, VV30)...

There is no consensus regarding the treatment method and outcome of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury. We hypothesized that although the outcome of PCL reconstruction was favorable in terms of knee stability, the outcome was unsatisfactory in terms of patient-based assessments. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the treatment outcomes of knees that underwent reconstruction for PCL injury by subjective and objective assessments, and to analyze the correlation between various assessments. Twenty-three patients who underwent PCL reconstruction were studied...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between distal femoral morphology and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, ACL reconstruction (ACLR) failure, and contralateral ACL injury. It was hypothesized that increased posterior femoral condylar depth, quantified as the lateral femoral condyle ratio, would correlate with increased risk of primary ACL injuries, ACLR failures, and contralateral ACL injuries. METHODS: The charts of consecutive patients who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery at an academic medical center from 2012 to 2016 with minimum follow-up of 24 months were retrospectively reviewed...

Introduction: Menisci and cruciate ligaments are intra-articular structures of knee, and injury to these structures is common. Morphometric data gained in the study will help in analyzing the variations among humans and correlating it with the possibility, location, and type of injuries as well as better interpretation of structures during magnetic resonance imaging and arthroscopy which will further help in reconstructive surgeries of knee. Materials and Methods: Width and thickness of the medial menisci (MM), lateral menisci (LM), and maximum length and width of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) were taken on twenty knees...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of osteoarthritis after successful meniscal repair is significantly less than that after failed meniscal repair. PURPOSE: To determine whether the addition of anterolateral ligament reconstruction (ALLR) confers a protective effect on medial meniscal repair performed at the time of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data was performed to include all patients who had undergone primary ACLR with concomitant posterior horn medial meniscal repair through a posteromedial portal between January 2013 and August 2015...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purposes of this review are to (1) describe the anatomic and biomechanical rationale for high tibial osteotomy (HTO) in the setting of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) deficiency, (2) review the indications for concomitant HTO and PCL reconstruction, (3) provide guidance for the clinical assessment of the patient with suspected PCL deficiency, and (4) summarize the key surgical steps necessary to attain the appropriate sagittal and coronal plane corrections. RECENT FINDINGS: The preponderance of available biomechanical data pertaining to the PCL-deficient knee suggests that an increased proximal tibial slope limits posterior tibial translation under axial compressive loads...
