An Abnormal Tibial Position Is Associated With Alterations in the Meniscal Matrix: A 3-Year Longitudinal Study After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.

Orthop J Sports Med 2019 Jan 10;7(1):2325967118820057. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

Background: An altered tibial position is still present despite anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. It has been demonstrated that an abnormal tibial position after an ACL injury may play a role in subsequent injuries to the meniscus, which can lead to early cartilage degeneration.

Purpose: To determine changes in both the tibial position and the meniscal matrix present before and after ACL reconstruction as well as to evaluate the association between these 2 variables in ACL-injured knees 3 years after reconstruction. Read More

Posterior Tibial Slope and Risk of Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury.

Am J Sports Med 2019 Feb 14;47(2):312-317. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

The Steadman Clinic, Vail, Colorado, USA.

Background:: Recent biomechanical studies have identified sagittal plane posterior tibial slope as a potential risk factor for posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury because of its effects on the kinematics of the native and surgically treated knee. However, the literature lacks clinical correlation between primary PCL injuries and decreased posterior tibial slope.

Purpose/hypothesis:: The purpose of this study was to retrospectively compare the amount of posterior tibial slope between patients with PCL injuries and age/sex-matched controls with intact PCLs. Read More

Arthroscopic Primary Posterior Cruciate Ligament Repair With Suture Augmentation.

Arthrosc Tech 2017 Oct 25;6(5):e1685-e1690. Epub 2017 Sep 25.

Orthopaedic Trauma Service, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hospital for Special Surgery, Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York, NY, U.S.A.

Isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries are relatively rare and PCL injuries most commonly occur in the setting of multiligamentous knee injuries. PCL injuries can be treated with primary repair, which has the advantages of preserving the native tissue, maintaining proprioception, and minimal invasive surgery when compared with reconstruction surgery. Historically, primary repair of PCL injuries was performed in all tear types using an open approach, and, although the subjective outcomes were relatively good, patients often had residual laxity.

Imaging of Ligamentous Structures within the Knee Includes Much More Than the ACL.

J Knee Surg 2018 Feb 10;31(2):130-140. Epub 2018 Jan 10.

Department of Radiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

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. Read More

Posterior Tibial Translation Measurements on Magnetic Resonance Imaging Improve Diagnostic Sensitivity for Chronic Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries and Graft Tears.

Am J Sports Med 2018 02 13;46(2):341-347. Epub 2017 Oct 13.

The Steadman Clinic, Vail, Colorado, USA.

Background: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee is a highly sensitive and specific method for diagnosing acute posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears, with a reported accuracy of 96% to 100%. In chronic and revision settings, these injuries may be missed on MRI because of the apparent continuity of nonfunctional PCL fibers. Posterior tibial translation (PTT) of the medial compartment has been identified as a potential secondary finding of PCL tear on routine MRI. Read More
