Proximal tibia fractures are associated with concurrent collateral ligament injuries. Failure to recognize these injuries may lead to chronic knee instability. The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors for concurrent collateral ligament injuries with proximal tibia fractures and their association with inpatient outcomes. A total of 32,441 patients with proximal tibia fractures were identified in the 2011-2012 National Trauma Data Bank. A total of 1445 (4.5%) had collateral ligament injuries, 794 (2...

BACKGROUND: In a typical osteoarthritic knee with varus deformity, distal femoral resection based off the worn medial femoral condyle may result in an elevated joint line. In a setting of fixed flexion contracture, the surgeon may choose to resect additional distal femur to obtain extension, thus purposefully raising the joint line. However, the biomechanical effect of raising the joint line is not well recognized. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What is the effect of the level of the medial joint line (restored versus raised) on coronal plane stability of a TKA? (2) Does coronal alignment technique (mechanical axis versus kinematic technique) affect coronal plane stability of the knee? (3) Can the effect of medial joint-line elevation on coronal plane laxity be predicted by an analytical model? METHODS: A TKA prosthesis was implanted in 10 fresh frozen nonarthritic cadaveric knees with restoration of the medial joint line at its original level (TKA0)...

BACKGROUND: Following anterior cruciate ligament injury and subsequent reconstruction transverse plane tibiofemoral rotation becomes underconstrained and overconstrained, respectively. Conflicting reports exist on how rotations influence loading at the knee. This investigation aimed to determine the mechanical effects of internal and external tibial rotation offsets on knee kinematics and ligament strains during in vitro simulations of in vivo recorded kinematics. METHOD: A 6-degree-of-freedom robotic manipulator arm was used to articulate 11 cadaveric tibiofemoral joint specimens through simulations of four athletic tasks produced from in vivo recorded kinematics...

Approaches to management of combined anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and high-grade medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries remain controversial. Some studies suggest that with grade III MCL injuries, patients may benefit from concurrent MCL reconstruction to restore stability and prevent increased stress on the ACL graft. We present a technique for simultaneous ACL/MCL reconstructions using a single Achilles tendon allograft.

BACKGROUND: The human elbow maintains its stability mainly through its bony structure. Stability is enhanced by ligamentous structures. To allow the ligamento-muscular reflex, which protects against strain and stress, mechanoreceptors are embedded in the ligament. This report describes the existence and the distribution of the elbow medial collateral ligaments (MCLs) mechanoreceptors. HYPOTHESIS: 1) the bony attachment site has the highest density of mechanoreceptors, and 2) the anterior part has the highest density of mechanoreceptors...

INTRODUCTION: Dislocation of the elbow associated with radial head and coronoid fracture, the so-called "terrible triad" of the elbow, is challenging to treat and has a history of complicated outcomes. This study is to compare the clinical outcome of a single lateral approach-the extensile splitting extensor digitorum communis (EDC) approach and combined lateral and medial (CML) approaches for the treatment of terrible traid of the elbow (TTE). MATERIAL AND METHODS: After appropriate exclusion, 60 TTE patients (28 patients in the EDC group, 32 patients in the CML group) from 2009 January to 2015 August were reviewed in this study...

Knowledge and command of anatomy is paramount to effectively treating disorders of the lesser metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints. The osseous structures consist of the proximal phalanx of the toe and the metatarsal head. The soft tissues on the dorsum of the MTP joint include the joint capsule and the tendons of extensor digitorum longus and extensor digitorum brevis. The proper and accessory collateral ligaments form the medial and lateral walls and contribute to stability in the coronal and sagittal planes...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the popularity of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) has increased. However, the effect of femoral component positioning in UKA continues to invite a considerable debate. The purpose of this study involved assessing the biomechanical effect of mal-alignment in femoral components in UKA under dynamic loading conditions using a computational simulation. METHODS: A validated finite element model was used to evaluate contact stresses in polyethylene (PE) inserts and lateral compartment and force on collateral ligament in the femoral component ranging from 9° of varus to 9° of valgus...

BACKGROUND: Surgical reconstruction of ligaments and tendons is frequently required in clinical practice. The commonly used autografts, allografts, or synthetic transplants present limitations in terms of availability, biocompatibility, cost, and mechanical properties that tissue bioengineering aims to overcome. It classically combines an exogenous extracellular matrix with cells, but this approach remains complex and expensive. Using a rat model, we tested a new bioengineering strategy for the in vivo and de novo generation of autologous grafts without the addition of extracellular matrix or cells, and analyzed their biomechanical and structural properties...

The medial collateral ligament is the most commonly injured knee ligament. Valgus stress radiographs are reported to be an effective way to quantify the medial compartment opening. However, most of the techniques require the presence of a physician in the radiograph room to apply a manual valgus stress force, and can only be performed in 1 knee at a time. These techniques, although extremely effective, increase radiation exposure to physicians, are time consuming, and require additional radiographs to compare the side-to-side difference...

Ligamentous structures of the knee are numerous and complex, including the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments, medial and lateral collateral ligaments, ligaments of the posteromedial and posterolateral corners, and the anterolateral ligament. Clinical assessment after a knee injury is paramount and can direct both the clinician's choice of imaging study and the radiologist's interpretation. Imaging is crucial in that it provides additional information for diagnosis, management, and surgical planning...
