Repair and augmentation of the lateral collateral ligament complex using internal bracing in dislocations and fracture dislocations of the elbow restores stability and allows early rehabilitation.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Sporthopaedicum, Straubing and Regensburg, Bahnhofplatz, 27, 94315, Straubing, Germany.

Purpose: Most elbow dislocations can be treated conservatively, with surgery indicated in special circumstances. Surgical options, apart from fracture fixation, range from repair or reconstruction of the damaged ligaments to static external fixation, usually entailing either a long period of immobilization followed by carefully monitored initiation of movement or dynamic external fixation. In general, no consensus regarding surgical treatment has been reached. Read More

Alterations in Joint Angular Velocity Following Traumatic Knee Injury in Ovine Models.

Ann Biomed Eng 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

McCaig Institute for Bone & Joint Health, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada.

Little effort has been directed towards the consequence of an injury on joint angular velocity. We hypothesized that the magnitude of knee joint angular velocity would be decreased after injury. Four injury groups were investigated in an ovine model: (1) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) transection (ACL/MCL Tx) (n = 5), (2) lateral meniscectomy (Mx) (n = 5), (3) partial ACL transection (p-ACL Tx) (n = 5), and (4) partial-ACL and MCL transection (p-ACL/MCL Tx) (n = 5).

Prediction of Meniscal and Ligamentous Injuries in Lateral Tibial Plateau Fractures Based on Measurements of Lateral Plateau Widening on Multidetector Computed Tomography Scans.

Biomed Res Int 2018 29;2018:5353820. Epub 2018 Jul 29.

Department of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, Children's Hospital, Hamburg-Altona, Germany.

Background: The influence of increasing lateral plateau widening on the frequency of meniscal and ligamentous lesions in lateral tibial plateau fractures has been examined in very few studies using plain radiographs. Because the amount of this parameter cannot be measured accurately on plain radiographs, the purpose of this survey was to look for a possible correlation between the extent of lateral plateau widening, as measured on multidetector CT (MDCT) scans, and different soft-tissue injuries determined from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Materials And Methods: 55 patients with a lateral tibial plateau fracture were included in this retrospective case series. Read More

Editorial Commentary: Is the Anterolateral Ligament Always Injured in Knee Dislocations? Does It Matter?

Arthroscopy 2018 Jun;34(6):1898-1899

Vail, Colorado.

Anterolateral ligament injuries with knee dislocations appear to be very common. In particular, those that occur with fibular (lateral) collateral ligament injuries are very frequent. Although the majority of injuries in this magnetic resonance imaging study appear to be at the proximal attachment of the anterolateral ligament, caution is advised because there is still no clear agreement as to the anatomic attachment site of the anterolateral ligament on the femur.

The relations between kinematic abnormalities and post traumatic osteoarthritis have not yet been clearly elucidated. This study was conducted to determine the finite helical axes parameters and the tibiofemoral translation vector in the knee joints of two surgically induced injury sheep models: anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament transection (ACL/MCL Tx) (n = 5) and lateral meniscectomy (n = 5). We hypothesized that morphological damage in the experimental joints would be correlated to alterations in these kinematic variables. Read More

Fibular Collateral Ligament: Varus Stress Radiographic Analysis Using 3 Different Clinical Techniques.

Orthop J Sports Med 2018 May 2;6(5):2325967118770170. Epub 2018 May 2.

The Steadman Clinic, Vail, Colorado, USA.

Background: Fibular collateral ligament (FCL) tears are challenging to diagnose. Left untreated, FCL tears lead to residual ligament instability and increased joint loading on the medial compartment of the knee. Additionally, when a concomitant anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is performed, increased forces on reconstruction grafts occur, which may lead to premature graft failure. Read More

Lateral Collateral Ligament Injury About the Knee: Anatomy, Evaluation, and Management.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2018 Mar;26(6):e120-e127

From the Department of Orthopaedics, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH.

The lateral collateral ligament is the primary varus stabilizer of the tibiofemoral joint. Diagnosing an injury to this ligament can be challenging in the setting of multiligamentous trauma; however, failure to recognize these injuries can result in instability of the knee and unsatisfactory outcomes after cruciate ligament reconstruction. Recent literature exploring the anatomy and biomechanics of the lateral collateral ligament has enhanced our understanding and improved diagnosis and management of these injuries. Read More

Concomitant injuries may not reduce the likelihood of achieving symmetrical muscle function one year after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a prospective observational study based on 263 patients.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2018 Oct 5;26(10):2966-2977. Epub 2018 Feb 5.

Department of Orthopaedics, Institute of Clinical Sciences, The Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Purpose: A better understanding of patient characteristics and the way common concomitant injuries affect the recovery of muscle function after surgery should help providers to treat patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. The aim of this study was to determine whether patient characteristics, concomitant injuries and graft choice at ACL reconstruction were associated with symmetrical knee muscle function at one year. The hypothesis was that the presence of concomitant injuries would negatively influence the opportunity to achieve symmetrical knee function at the one-year follow-up. Read More
