  • Concomitant Posterolateral Corner Injuries in Skeletally Immature Patients With Acute Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr Orthop. 2020 Jul; 40(6):271-276.Kinsella SD, Rider SM, … Kocher MS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Missed PLC injuries are a significant source of morbidity and poor clinical outcomes in the management of concomitant ACL injuries in adults. This study demonstrates the prevalence of PLC injuries in the setting of concomitant ACL injuries in the unique skeletally immature patient population. Incomplete PLC injuries are relatively common. Complete PLC injuries are relatively uncommon. PLC injury was more common in older patients. No other concomitant injury predicted the likelihood of PLC injury. Further research is needed regarding the risk of ACL reconstruction failure from associated PLC injury and the indications for PLC reconstruction in skeletally immature patients.
  • Physeal-sparing posteromedial portal approach reduced distance between guide pin and neurovascular structures. [Journal Article]
    Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc. 2020 May 13 [Online ahead of print]Lissy M, Osborne J, … Lemos S
  • CONCLUSIONS: The posteromedial portal technique offers an appropriate method for anatomic ACL reconstruction while protecting the distal femoral physis from injury. Care needs to be taken with this technique as it comes in closer proximity to some of the important neurovascular structures. This study indicates that posteromedial portal technique is a less technically challenging approach for physeal-sparing ACL repair with special attention required for the protection of neurovascular bundle from potential injury.
  • The Menisco-Tibio-Popliteus-Fibular Complex: Anatomic Description of the Structures That Could Avoid Lateral Meniscal Extrusion. [Journal Article]
    Arthroscopy. 2020 Mar 19 [Online ahead of print]Masferrer-Pino A, Saenz-Navarro I, … Monllau JC
  • CONCLUSIONS: A consistent anatomic pattern has been identified between the lateral meniscal body and the LMTL, PFL, and PML, forming an interconnected complex that would seem appropriate to denominate the MTPFC. A precise study of this region and appropriate nomenclature for it could contribute to a better understanding of the mechanism of lateral meniscal injuries at this level, as well as the development of surgical techniques to treat these lesions and prevent extrusion.This study contributes to the understanding of the lateral meniscal body attachments and the functions they serve. This will lead to improvements in the treatment of lesions in this region, including the development of surgical techniques.
  • [Myofascial trigger point: an indicator of acupoint sensitization]. [Journal Article]
    Zhen Ci Yan Jiu. 2020 Jan 25; 45(1):57-61.Qin QG, Fu Y, … Zhu B
  • CONCLUSIONS: The primary pain areas or spots of the knee injury mainly distribute around the joint, whereas those of each muscle group lesion are often located in their respective skeletal muscle. Most of the referred pain areas often occur in the distal end of skeletal muscle and around the knee joint. Primary myofascial trigger points may be considered to be an indicator of acupoint sensitization.
  • Chronic Lower Leg Pain in Athletes: Overview of Presentation and Management. [Review]
    HSS J. 2020 Feb; 16(1):86-100.Mohile N, Perez J, … Jose J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Multiple conditions may result in lower leg pain in athletes. A focused clinical history and physical examination supplemented with appropriate imaging studies can guide clinicians in diagnosis and management. We provide a table to aid in the differential diagnosis of chronic leg pain in the athlete.
  • Muscular architecture of the popliteus muscle and the basic science implications. [Journal Article]
    Knee. 2020 Mar; 27(2):308-314.Wood A, Boren M, … Patterson RM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Further consideration should be given to include the popliteus muscle as a dynamic entity in the knee given its mechanical properties, trajectory, and prior biomechanical evidence showing when and how it is activated. The present study provides data that may shape future directions of research and treatment with regard to posterolateral corner injuries and ligamentous balancing of the knee.
  • Anatomic Posterolateral Corner Reconstruction With Autogenous Peroneus Longus Y Graft Construct. [Journal Article]
    Arthrosc Tech. 2019 Dec; 8(12):e1501-e1509.Tapasvi SR, Shekhar A, Patil SS
  • The posterolateral corner of the knee is composed of the fibular collateral ligament, popliteus tendon, and popliteofibular ligament, which provide varus and rotational stability to the knee. An anatomic technique reconstructs these structures through 2 femoral sockets and 1 tibial and 1 fibular tunnel. This reconstruction can be performed using a peroneus longus autograft that is prepared as a Y…
  • An All-Arthroscopic Technique for Complex Posterolateral Corner Reconstruction. [Journal Article]
    Arthrosc Tech. 2019 Sep; 8(9):e999-e1006.Kolb JP, Frings J, … Frosch KH
  • Injuries to the posterolateral corner (PLC) often result in lateral, rotational, and dorsal instability, which need appropriate and differentiated treatment. Besides posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction for posterior instability, the technique according to LaPrade et al. efficiently stabilizes posterolateral rotational and lateral instability as described in Fanelli type B or C injuries. Th…
  • Clinics in diagnostic imaging (200). Intra-articular chronic tophaceous gout of the knee. [Journal Article]
    Singapore Med J. 2019 10; 60(10):502-507.Lee YWM, Kok SXS, … Wong BSS
  • A 39-year-old man presented with acute left knee pain and swelling. There was limitation of movement of the knee joint. His past medical history was significant for gout. Computed radiography showed bony erosions that were not typical of chronic tophaceous gout. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed focal deposits within the knee joint, which demonstrated isointense signal to muscle on T1-weight…
