  • Does Knee Flexion Influence the Relationship between the Femoral Tunnel and the Lateral Anatomic Structures During ACL Reconstruction? [Journal Article]
  • COClin Orthop Relat Res 2019 May 30
  • Chung K, Kim SJ, … Jung M
  • CONCLUSIONS: As knee flexion increased, the femoral tunnel's outlet tended to move more anteriorly and distally. Consequently, the safe distance to the lateral head of the gastrocnemius increased and the distances to the lateral epicondyle, lateral collateral ligament, and popliteus tendon decreased with increased knee flexion. To avoid possible damage to the lateral anatomic structures and obtain stable fixation in ACL reconstruction using the transportal technique, we recommend creating a femoral tunnel within 121° and 131° of knee flexion.
  • Assessing "PCL Plus Popliteus" injuries. [Journal Article]
  • JOJ Orthop 2019 May-Jun; 16(3):245-248
  • O'Neil S, Nord A, … Jabara M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Isolated grade III PCL injury may not frequently exist, rather undiagnosed & untreated concurrent popliteus injury can have less successful outcomes after isolated PCL reconstruction.
