Arthroscopic Transosseous Repair of a Medial Meniscal Posterior-Root Tear.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2021 Oct-Dec;11(4). Epub 2021 Oct 7.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Meniscal root tears are soft-tissue and/or osseous injuries characterized by an avulsion of, or tear within 1 cm of, the native meniscal insertion. These injuries account for 10% to 21% of all meniscal tears, affecting nearly 100,000 patients annually. Medial meniscal posterior-root tears (MMPRTs) expose the tibiofemoral joint to supraphysiologic contact pressure, decreased contact area, and altered knee kinematics similar to a total meniscectomy.

Development of an Ultrasound Technique to Evaluate the Popliteal Complex in the Horse.

Animals (Basel) 2022 Mar 22;12(7). Epub 2022 Mar 22.

Large Animal Teaching Hospital, Department of Medicine and Surgery, University of Copenhagen, 1165 Copenhagen, Denmark.

The popliteal tendon and muscle are major stabilizers of the human and dog knee, more specifically the postero-lateral corner. Injury to this complex causes posterior knee pain, and it is generally associated with other injured structures such as the lateral collateral ligament, lateral meniscus, and/or the cranial cruciate ligament. The popliteal complex is poorly reported in the horse, and its specific function has not been determined. Read More

Anatomy and ultrasound imaging of the tibial collateral ligament: A narrative review.

Clin Anat 2022 Jul 11;35(5):571-579. Epub 2022 Apr 11.

Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey.

Medial knee pain is commonplace in clinical practice and ultrasound assessment of the tibial collateral ligament-medial meniscus complex is increasingly becoming a valuable examination tool in the outpatient setting. In the pertinent literature, basic sonographic protocols have been proposed to evaluate the medial compartment of the knee joint. Using high-frequency ultrasound probes and high-level ultrasound machines; we matched the histo-anatomical features of the tibial collateral ligament-medial meniscus complex and its different sonographic patterns in physiological/pathological conditions to define a standardized (layer-by-layer) sonographic approach.

Lateral Collateral Ligament and Proximal Tibiofibular Joint Reconstruction for Tibiofibular Instability.

Arthrosc Tech 2022 Feb 23;11(2):e251-e256. Epub 2022 Jan 23.

Steadman Clinic, Vail, Colorado, U.S.A.

Instability of the proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ) can be post-traumatic or due to accumulative injuries and may also be underdiagnosed pathology that can present with symptoms of lateral and/or medial knee pain. It can be associated with subtle instability and subluxation or frank dislocation of both the PTFJ and the native knee joint. Previously described techniques have been either nonanatomic, require secondary hardware removal, disrupt native anatomy, or fail to account for the inherent stabilizing effect of the lateral collateral ligament, which is likely additionally injured or lax in these patients.
