The elbow: review of anatomy and common collateral ligament complex pathology using MRI.

Insights Imaging 2019 Apr 3;10(1):43. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Radiology Department, Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal, Carretera de Colmenar Viejo Km. 9,100, 28034, Madrid, Spain.

The elbow is a complex joint whose stability is imparted by osseous and soft-tissue constraints. Anatomical and biomechanical knowledge of the supporting structures that provide stability to the medial and lateral elbow is essential to correctly interpret the pathological findings. Conventional MRI and MR arthrography are the imaging modalities of choice in the evaluation of elbow ligament injuries. Read More

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

Ann Biomed Eng 2019 Mar 17;47(3):790-801. 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).

Avulsion fracture of the medial collateral ligament association with Segond fracture.

Clin Imaging 2019 Jan - Feb;53:32-34. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, 601 N. Caroline Street, JHOC 3142, Baltimore, MD 21287, USA. Electronic address:

The Segond fracture is a tibial avulsion injury of the insertion of the middle third of the lateral capsular ligament that is typically associated with anterior cruciate ligament and meniscal tears. The classically assigned mechanism of injury is a combination of internal rotation and varus stress. We report two cases of Segond fractures that presented with a variant pattern including osseous avulsion injuries of the medial collateral ligament at the femoral origin, anterior cruciate ligament tear, and pivot shift-type osseous contusion pattern, suggesting an alternative mechanism of injury that includes dominant valgus stress and external rotation components.

[Injuries of the medial collateral ligament and spring ligament complexes].

Unfallchirurg 2018 Sep;121(9):704-714

Radiologie, Hessingpark-Clinic, Augsburg, Deutschland.

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) complex is characterized by a complex anatomical arrangement of the individual ligamentous structures including three joints and the spring ligament complex. Biomechanically it serves as the main stabilizing structure in the ankle region against rotational and pronating forces. Lesions in the region of the MCL complex are more frequent than previously thought and like lesions of the spring ligament complex can lead to pain and instability. Read More

Correlation between translational and rotational kinematic abnormalities and osteoarthritis-like damage in two in vivo sheep injury models.

J Biomech 2018 06 16;75:67-76. Epub 2018 May 16.

McCaig Institute for Bone & Joint Health, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada; Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada; Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada. Electronic address:

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

Evaluation and Significance of Mortise Instability in Supination External Rotation Fibula Fractures: A Review Article.

Foot Ankle Int 2018 07 13;39(7):865-873. Epub 2018 Apr 13.

3 Brigham & Women's/Faulkner Hospital, Jamaica Plain, MA, USA.

Evaluation and management of ankle fractures has progressed in parallel to an evolving understanding of ankle stability. While stability of the mortise had historically been attributed to the lateral malleolus, Lauge-Hansen's contributions followed by multiple other investigations increased the emphasis on the significance of medial-sided injury in destabilizing the mortise. As the importance of the deltoid ligament has been elucidated, the means of assessing ligamentous incompetence and the prognostic significance of an unstable mortise continue to be defined.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2018 Apr;100(7):564-571

Clinic for Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, BG Trauma Center Ludwigshafen at the University of Heidelberg, Ludwigshafen on the Rhine, Germany.

Background: The objective of our study was to analyze, under fluoroscopy, joint angulation of uninjured elbows and elbows with distinct induced collateral ligament injury.

Methods: Twelve elbow specimens were tested for varus and valgus joint angulation using 4 different examination methods (application of both varus and valgus stress by each of 2 examiners [Examiner 1 and Examiner 2] and application of 1 and 2 Nm of torque using a calibrated electric force scale) in 4 elbow positions (in full extension with 90° of supination and 90° of pronation, and in 30° of flexion with 90° of supination and 90° of pronation). Six elbow specimens were examined under varus stress at each of 5 sequential stages: (1) intact, (2) transection of the lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL), (3) complete transection of the lateral collateral ligament complex (LCLC), (4) transection of the anterior aspect of the capsule (AC), and (5) transection of the medial collateral ligament (MCL).

Surgical Management of the Multiple-Ligament Knee Injury.

Arthrosc Tech 2018 Feb 1;7(2):e147-e164. Epub 2018 Feb 1.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S.A.

The management of multiligament knee injury is a complex process starting with the adequate identification of the injury. A detailed physical and radiographic examination with a thorough understanding of knee anatomy is crucial to assess all damaged structures: anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, posteromedial corner including the medial collateral ligament, and posterolateral corner including the lateral collateral ligament. Several surgical techniques have been developed throughout the years to adequately address these ligament insufficiencies. Read More
