Primary repair of the cruciate and collateral ligaments after traumatic dislocation of the knee. (1/66)

The management of traumatic dislocation of the knee in 40 patients (41 knees) with a mean age of 26.3 years is described. They were treated by primary repair and reconstruction with autologous grafting of the anterior (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligaments (PCL) and repair injuries to the collateral ligament and soft-tissue. The ACL and PCL were reconstructed using the patellar tendon and the gracilis and semitendinosus tendons, respectively. Early mobilisation using a continuous-passive-movement machine and active exercises was started on the second day after operation. At a mean follow-up of 39 months no patient reported 'giving way' and all except one had good range of movement. Of the 41 knees, 21 were rated as excellent, 15 good, four fair and one poor. Early reconstruction of the cruciate ligaments and primary repair of the collateral ligaments followed by an aggressive rehabilitation programme are recommended for these young, active patients.  (+info)

Variations in the normal anatomy of the collateral ligaments of the human elbow joint. (2/66)

The variations which occur in the medial and lateral ligament complexes of the elbow were investigated. These occurred frequently with the standard appearances occurring in no more than half the specimens on the medial side and one quarter of those on the lateral side. Surgeons who regularly perform elbow arthroplasty must be aware of these considerations, especially with the introduction of unconstrained prostheses which rely upon the ligament complex for their postoperative stability.  (+info)

Repair of collateral ligament instability in 2 foals by using suture anchors. (3/66)

Instability of the collateral ligaments of the carpal or metacarpophalangeal joint occurred in 2 foals. The instability was repaired using commercial suture anchors. In foals, commercial suture anchors combined with external coaptation can be used successfully to repair collateral ligament instability of the carpus or the metacarpophalangeal joint.  (+info)

Reconstruction of chronic collateral ligament injuries to fingers by use of suture anchors. (4/66)

AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of suture anchors in the reconstruction of chronic collateral ligaments of fingers. METHODS: We treated 8 patients, 6 with chronic instability of the collateral ligament of the thumb and 2 with the instability of the fifth finger, using the Statak suture anchor. A stable joint was achieved in each case, with no recurrent instability or pain within a mean of 14 months of the follow up. RESULTS: Postoperatively, each patient returned to his or her original job, their daily activities, and sports. There was no significant difference on manual stress testing measurements between operated and uninjured fingers. Mean pinch strength and range of motion were 90% (range, 78-104%) and 94% (range, 70-100%), respectively, compared to uninjured fingers. CONCLUSION: Suture anchor technique can be recommended as a simple and effective method of repairing the collateral ligament of fingers.  (+info)

Induction of osteoarthritis in the rat by surgical tear of the meniscus: Inhibition of joint damage by a matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor. (6/66)

OBJECTIVE: Characterize a model of osteoarthritis (OA) induced by a surgically transecting the medial collateral ligament and meniscus. Evaluate the effectiveness of a matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) inhibitor in this model. METHODS: The medial collateral ligament of the right knee of rats was transected and a single full thickness cut was made through meniscus. Rats were sacrificed at various times after the surgery to assess the severity of gross cartilage damage using an image analyser and microscopically by histology. The effect of an MMP inhibitor in this model was assessed by administering compound twice daily for the 21 days and evaluating gross and histological joint damage at day 21. The in vitro potency of the MMP inhibitor (MMPI) against a panel of human recombinant MMPs was assessed kinetically using a quenched fluorescent substrate. RESULTS: Surgical transection of the medial collateral ligament and meniscus resulted in a time dependent increase in the severity of the cartilage lesion (depth) as measured histologically but only a slight increase in the area of the lesion as assessed grossly by image analysis. Administration of a MMPI orally twice daily (b.i.d.) at 25mg/kg to rats in the meniscal tear model resulted in significant inhibition of cartilage degradation and osteophyte formation (total joint score) of 39+/-7% (mean+/-S.E.M., from four separate experiments). CONCLUSION: These results demonstrate that MMP inhibition is effective in reducing the joint damage that occurs in the meniscal tear model of OA and support a potential therapeutic role for MMP inhibition in the treatment of human OA.  (+info)

The lateral collateral ligament complex and related muscles act as a dynamic stabilizer as well as a static supporting structure at the elbow joint: an anatomical and experimental study. (7/66)

Among 71 osteoligamentous elbow joint specimens from Japanese subjects, 66% of the lateral ulnar collateral ligaments (LUCLs) were in an incomplete form, such as a fibrous intermuscular septum lying between the anconeus, supinator and extensors, and terminated on the annular ligament. The 'typical' complete ligament, extending from the lateral epicondyle and over the radial collateral ligament (RCL) to the crista spinatoris, appeared in only 20% of the elbows examined. This observation suggests that, in Japanese subjects, the LUCL is not usually a simple ligamentous static stabilizer, but acts as a dynamic stabilizer, together with its related muscles. In addition, when the elbow was flexed by more than 90 degrees, the distance between the lateral epicondyle and the radial head became almost 1.5 mm larger than the distance from the epicondyle to the annular ligament. We therefore consider that, in the overflexed position, the radial head moves slightly distal while the length of the RCL remains almost constant. This morphometrical observation suggests that the annular ligament needs to be supported by the LUCL-muscle complex from the distal side, as well as by the RCL from the proximal side. This extended definition of the lateral collateral ligament complex and its associated muscular function is discussed.  (+info)

Hyperextension trauma to the elbow: radiological and ultrasonographic evaluation in handball goalkeepers. (8/66)

OBJECTIVE: To detect elbow lesions produced by hyperextension in 30 elite handball goalkeepers. METHODS: Conventional radiographs, stress radiographs, and ultrasound examination of both elbows were used. As a control group, 30 male volunteers from the general population within the same age group with no history of elbow injury were used. RESULTS: Radiographic findings in the goalkeepers were osteophyte formation in 67%, loose bodies in 5.5%, and periarticular calcification in 5.5%. Significantly greater differences in medial joint space opening between stressed and unstressed elbows were measured in both elbows than in the control group. Ultrasonographic findings showed thickening of the medial collateral ligament in 50%, thickening of the tricipital tendon in 11%, and signs of ulnar neuritis in 22%. An intra-articular effusion was found in 66% and small loose bodies in 33%. No significant differences were found between the dominant and non-dominant elbows at radiological and ultrasound examination. The findings in the control group were normal. CONCLUSIONS: The findings support the theory that repetitive hyperextension trauma to the elbow in handball goalkeepers results in pathological changes.  (+info)

PURPOSE. Our hypothesis in this study is that the radial and ulnar collateral ligaments of the wrist exist and are true ligaments which can be visualized by high-resolution ultrasonography (US).. METHODS. High-resolution US examination of the radial and ulnar collateral ligaments of the wrist was performed on 56 fresh cadaveric wrists. The visibility of these ligaments was assessed by four observers who classified the ligaments in consensus as well seen, adequately seen, or not seen. Surgical dissections of 12 radial collateral ligaments and 12 ulnar collateral ligaments were then performed and the ligaments were classified as present or absent. The US and dissection results were then compared. To confirm that the dissected structures represent true ligaments a histologic examination of the ligaments was performed.. RESULTS. All examined radial and ulnar collateral ligaments were seen on the US examination. The radial collateral ligament was seen between the radial styloid and radial aspect of ...

Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, also known as Tommy John surgery (TJS), is a surgical graft procedure where the ulnar collateral ligament in the medial elbow is replaced with either a tendon from elsewhere in the patients body, or tendon from donated tissue of a cadaver. The procedure is common among collegiate and professional athletes in several sports, most notably baseball. The procedure was first performed in 1974 by orthopedic surgeon Frank Jobe, a Los Angeles Dodgers team physician who served as a special advisor to the team until his death in 2014. It is named after the first baseball player to undergo the surgery, major league pitcher Tommy John, whose record of 288 career victories ranks seventh among left-handed pitchers. The initial operation, Johns successful post-surgery career, and the relationship between the two men is the subject of a 2013 ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. At the time of Tommy Johns operation, Dr. Jobe put the chances for success of the operation at 1 in ...

Authors. Alexander W. Aleem, MD, and Charles L. Getz, MD. Disclosures. The authors have no disclosures relevant to this article.. Introduction. Originally described by Hotchkiss, [1] a "terrible triad" injury of the elbow refers to a constellation of injuries in the elbow that include fractures of both the radial head and coronoid with resultant posterolateral dislocation of the elbow joint. [2,3]. Most patients suffer this injury by falling on an outstretched, supinated arm with a valgus stress through the elbow. The "terrible" designation of these injuries is due to the fact that the elbow has lost all ligamentous and bony stability, leading to a high rate of recurrent instability if left untreated.. Terrible triad injuries account for approximately 30% of all elbow dislocations. [3] They more commonly occur in adult men, with a peak incidence during the 4th decade of life. Concurrent ipsilateral injuries to the wrist, interosseous membrane of the forearm, and shoulder have been ...

What is a lateral collateral ligament injury? A lateral collateral ligament injury is an injury to one of the ligaments in your knee. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that connect one bone to another to form the joints. The lateral collateral ligament is on the outer side of your knee and attaches your thighbone to the outside bone in your lower leg. The ligaments in your knee keep your knee and leg bones in place when you walk or run. When a ligament is injured, it can be stretched, partially torn, or completely torn. Complete tears make the knee joint very loose and unstable. A ligament injury is also called a sprain.. What is the cause?. Lateral collateral ligament injuries can happen if you are hit on the inner side of your knee. A twisting of the leg and knee can also cause this injury.. What are the symptoms? Symptoms may include:. ...
There are two primary ligaments at the ankle, a lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and a medial collateral ligament (MCL) on each side of the ankle, they are stretched between the tibia / fibula top and the talus / calcaneus below.

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.. McCarthy, 31, will now need Tommy John surgery and be sidelined for the rest of the season and likely the start of the 2016 season.. The loss of McCarthy further weakens an already fragile Dodgers rotation.. In four games this season McCarthy was 3-0 with a 5.87 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He allowed six runs in his last outing on Saturday against the San Diego Padres.. The 2014 season marked the first time that McCarthy had made 30 or more starts. He has been incredibly injury prone throughout his career.. ...

The decision was reached today after Crawford met with the Red Sox medical staff to discuss his condition. Crawford has been playing with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. According to a source close to Crawford, the left fielder didnt want to give the appearance that he was bailing on the Red Sox by opting for surgery, but he also believes the procedure is necessary in order for him to play without pain.. The Red Sox have released the following statement:. "Carl Crawford has a chronic left elbow ulnar collateral ligament tear. While he has been following a conservative treatment protocol and playing with this injury, his symptoms are getting worse. After consultation with the Boston Red Sox medical staff and with Dr. James Andrews, the decision has been made to proceed with a left elbow ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction (Tommy John surgery). The surgery will be performed by Dr. Andrews on Thursday, August 23. We expect Carl to make a full recovery.". Full coverage in ...

Signs of the injury showed up Aug. 21 in the fifth inning of his last outing on a 1-1 pitch to the Philadelphia Phillies Domonic Brown. The Nats ended up winning that game 8-1. Strasburgs first season record ended at 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 12 starts. Tommy John surgery replaces the ulnar collateral ligament with a tendon harvested from another part of the patients body. This happens to a lot of pitchers in baseball. The procedure was developed by Dr. Frank Jobe, but named for the first pitcher whose career it saved. Like Strasburg, Nats pitcher Jordan Zimmermann was off to a blazing start last year, but he needed Tommy John surgery by August. Last Thursday against St. Louis, Zimmermann made his first start since July 18 of last year. He went four innings giving ...
ATLANTA - Braves general manager Frank Wren said Saturday left-hander Eric OFlaherty has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. The loss of OFlaherty, who faces possible season-ending surgery, leaves the Braves in a sudden bullpen crisis.On Thursday, left-hander Jonny Venters had season-ending surgery to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. It is his second Tommy John surgery.
Major league pitchers are remarkable athletes who have the ability to throw a baseball at high velocity, often spinning it so it bends in its flight, with such accuracy that they could drive a nail with the pitch from a distance of 606. In doing this, they are able to earn huge salaries for mutlitple…
Tommy John injury is most commonly found in overhead throwing athletes where throwing motions may stress the UCL at rates in excess of its ultimate strength

The purpose of this study was to investigate how age-related factors may influence the capacity of the muscles to protect the ulnar collateral ligament during baseball pitching. Three-dimensional marker position data from 30 pitchers (across three age groups) were incorporated into a musculoskeletal modeling framework, using OpenSim software. The effect of pitcher size, strength, and mechanics were represented by independent implementations of scaling factors, isometric muscle force values, and joint angles, resulting in 27 model combinations. For each combination, the maximum isometric varus/valgus moments that could be produced by all of the muscles were calculated and evaluated. While we found minimal age-related changes in joint angles, varus/valgus moments were highly sensitive to muscular strength and pitcher size.
3 of 7) The lateral (fibular) collateral ligament arises from the lateral condyle of the femur and pierces the tendon of the biceps femoris muscle as it passes to attach to the head of the fibula. The lateral collateral ligament is separated from the joint capsule by the tendon of the popliteus muscle. This tendon passes through the joint cavity to attach to the lateral condyle of the femur. The medial (tibial) collateral ligament arises from the medial condyle of the femur and inserts onto the medial surface of the tibia below the medial condyle.. Links and References: ...

We had faith in Jorge and thought that this surgery would work out," said Bill Geivett, the Rockies vice president of major-league operations. "We looked at him as a front of the rotation type of starter before he got hurt. Knowing the history of success with the surgery, we thought Jorge probably would come back strong.". The success rate for major-league pitchers returning from Tommy John surgery is about 85 percent, according to Dr. James Andrews, the renowned Birmingham, Ala., orthopedic surgeon. Still, the recovery time varies for each pitcher and the road back can be as taxing as a four-wheel drive trail.. Patience put to test Tommy John surgery - more properly known as ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction - has become common in baseball. It has saved the careers of many star pitchers, including the Cardinals Adam Wainwright and the Washington Nationals Stephen Strasburg. The estimated recovery time is 12 to 18 months before a pitcher begins to resemble his old self.. De La Rosa ...
Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction has advanced over the years and is now one of the most common procedures performed in baseball pitchers.

The extensor digitorum is a superficial muscle lying in the posterior-lateral compartment of the forearm. It arises from the posterior side of the lateral epicondyle, the radial collateral ligament, the annular ligament and the antebrachial fascia. At the middle third of the forearm, it splits into three bundles: the lateral separates into two tendons, while the others 4 Wrist continue with one tendon each. The fourth extensor compartment also contains a part of the myotendinous junctions of these tendons. 1 First Compartment The first compartment contains the abductor pollicis longus (radial) and extensor pollicis brevis (ulnar) tendons (Fig. 11). The position of tendons contained in the first compartment can be easily detected by 51 visual inspection, as they form the radial edge of the anatomical snuff box (Fig. 12a). The wrist must be kept in an intermediate position between pronation and supination and the probe must be placed on the lateral side of radial styloid (Fig. 12b). The ...
The knee joint, which appears like a simple hinge-joint, is one of the most complex joints in the body. The knee joint is made up of the femur (thigh bone), tibia (lower leg bone) and patella (the kneecap). All these bones are lined with articular cartilage (surface cartilage). This articular cartilage acts like a shock absorber and allows a smooth, low friction surface for the knee to move on. Between the tibia and femur lie two floating cartilages called menisci. The medial (inner) meniscus and the lateral (outer) meniscus rest on the tibial surface cartilage and are mobile. The menisci also act as shock absorbers and stabilizers. The knee is stabilized by ligaments that are both inside and outside the joint. The medial and lateral collateral ligaments support the knee from excessive side to side movement. The (internal) anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments support the knee from buckling and giving way. The knee joint is surrounded by a capsule (envelope) that produces a small amount of ...

A better analogy is recovery from an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear of the knee, the dreaded "reconstructive knee surgery" you hear about so often in football. In this case, a small bundle of collagen fibers woven together sort of like a guy wire cable, runs from the back of your thigh bone (femur) to the front of your shin bone (tibia). It is small, but has a very important job- when you straighten out your leg, it prevents the quadriceps muscle (the big "one"- actually four- on top of your thigh) from pulling the shin bone forward and locking the joint as the kneecap serves as the lever fulcrum for the contraction. The hinge joints for the knee are on the side- the medial and lateral collateral ligaments. For a variety of reasons, they can get injured, but they heal very nicely by themselves simply left alone for about six weeks. The ACL is the Big One; God simply didnt make it to deal with some of the stresses applied by modern athletics ...
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Furman tight end Larry Heddens football career is over after suffering a dislocated knee in Saturdays football game against Georgia Southern, according to Furman head athletic trainer Phil Hedrick. The dislocation resulted in tears in all three ligaments in his right knee, including the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, and lateral collateral ligaments. Hedden, a 6-foot-5 junior from Birmingham, Ala., underwent three hours of surgery on Sunday at Greenvilles St. Francis Hospital, where he remains Monday afternoon. "This has been a really tough season for Larry on many fronts, and what he is going through now is felt by everyone associated with Furman football," said Paladin head coach Bobby Lamb on Moday.

Throwing injuries can produce pain, numbness, tingling and reduction in the throwing velocity. When you present with symptoms of a throwing injury, Dr. Patel will review your medical history, discuss your athletic activities and perform a thorough physical examination to examine the strength, range of motion, and stability of your elbow. Imaging tests (X-ray, MRI and CT scans) may be ordered to confirm the diagnosis.. Dr. Patel may suggest a conservative approach to treatment such as rest, ice application, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and a modification of activity and throwing technique. If symptoms remain uncontrolled surgery may be performed to repair the injured tissues either through an open surgery or a less invasive technique (arthroscopy) where a camera and instruments are inserted through a narrow tube. Surgery may be performed to reconstruct the ulnar collateral ligament. Surgery is always a last resort and given the epidemic of increased surgery in young baseball ...
MONDAY: Honeywell could be ready to pick up a ball again in January of 2020, Topkin tweets. His replacement ulnar collateral ligament is just fine, which represents a silver lining to the unfortunate situation.. SATURDAY: Top Rays prospect Brent Honeywell, on the mend from an April 2018 Tommy John Surgery, fractured a bone in his right elbow during a scheduled bullpen in Port Charlotte, Florida, and is out for the season, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. A surgery is scheduled for Monday.. Honeywell, a consensus top-30 prospect in every major outlet even after the Tommy John, had already experienced a major setback in his rehabilitation process this April when he was temporarily shelved with forearm soreness, an injury often precursor to major elbow damage. The 24-year-olds vaunted screwball, perhaps the only pure version of the pitch used with regularity among professional hurlers today, was felt in some circles to be the tears root, though Honeywell only features it sporadically ...
SEATTLE -- The amount of pitchers requiring Tommy John surgery has become almost an epidemic, one that continues to rattle the brains of doctors, coaches and front office members throughout the industry. According to Yahoo! Sports Jeff Passan, 44 professional pitchers have or will undergo the invasive procedure so far this year, with Angels reliever Sean Burnett among the latest.. Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher has two theories on why ulnar collateral ligaments are tearing so much more often these days.. Hes one of many who believes its bad for kids to play only baseball year-round, which often results in them putting too much stress on arms that have not yet matured. And just as importantly, Butcher says too many professional pitchers are throwing from the opposite side of the rubber (meaning, a right-hander throwing from the first-base side and a left-hander throwing from the third-base side).. Butcher has found that more than 30 of the pitchers who have undergone Tommy John surgery ...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - All-Star Giants closer Brian Wilson will undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery Thursday in Pensacola, Fla.. Renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery after doing a similar procedure on Wilson when the right-hander was in college at LSU in 2003. San Francisco team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki was set to travel to Florida on Wednesday night to assist with the operation.. Andrews examined Wilson on Wednesday and confirmed the Giants diagnosis of a torn ulnar collateral ligament that will sideline him all season. While the timeframe can be longer than the standard 12-18 months following Tommy John surgery, the Giants hope Wilson is a quick healer and will be able to pitch in 2013.. "Were all set to have the surgery done and get that over with," manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday before the series finale with the Philadelphia Phillies. "On the rehab side of it, theyre doing a better job of getting these guys back on the mound, throwing a little ...
TORONTO -- Blue Jays left-handed reliever Juan Perez has opted not to undergo Tommy John surgery and will instead attempt to rehab his left elbow injury. The veteran reliever suffered a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament during an outing against Oakland on Aug. 9. The belief was that he would require surgery, but hes opted for rest and will see how the ligament responds in approximately eight weeks.
The four most dreaded letters in baseball - ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction- have knocked out San Diego product and pitching sensation Stephen Strasburg just 68 innings into a magical rookie season that had captivated the nation.
Comments: Until a sprained ulnar collateral ligament sidelined him for his senior season, it appeared Giolito had a legitimate shot at becoming the first high school right-hander in Draft history to go No. 1 overall.Getting comps to Roy Halladay, in terms of his size, Giolito has been projected to have three above-average to plus offerings at his disposal at the next level. While his fastball sits comfortably in the 93-mph range, he was able to reach back and crank it up to 96 mph when needed. Its a heavy fastball that has some very good late movement, and his downhill plane makes it even tougher. Giolito throws a power curve with a sharp break as it reaches the plate. He also has an excellent changeup that dips like a split-fingered pitch. Hes got above-average command of all three, keeping his pitches down in the strike zone to go along with above-average mound presence and competitiveness.The SoCal right-hander wasnt viewed as having any real weaknesses, and, unlike many prep pitchers, it ...

Biomechanical studies of ACL injury risk factors frequently analyze only a fraction of the relevant data, and typically not in accordance with the injury mechanism. Extracting a peak value within a time series of relevance to ACL injuries is challenging due to differences in the relative timing and size of the peak value of interest. The aim was to cluster analyze the knee valgus moment time series curve shape in the early stance phase. We hypothesized that 1a) There would be few discrete curve shapes, 1b) there would be a shape reflecting an early peak of the knee valgus moment, 2a) youth athletes of both sexes would show similar frequencies of early peaks, 2b) adolescent girls would have greater early peak frequencies. N = 213 (39% boys) youth soccer and team handball athletes (phase 1) and N = 35 (45% boys) with 5 year follow-up data (phase 2) were recorded performing a change of direction task with 3D motion analysis and a force plate. The time series of the first 30% of stance phase were cluster

Isolated partial rupture of the knee medial collateral ligament (MCL) is the most common traumatic knee ligament injury. Owing to the good short- and medium-term functional results after conservative treatment, this injury has been regarded as harmless. The outcome after combination injuries, with simultaneous rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), is more uncertain.. The main purpose of this investigation was to improve the diagnosis of MCL injury and of concomitant injuries in acute knee trauma, in order to differentiate between the long-term effects of isolated and combined MCL injuries on knee function, sports participation, knee biomechanics and the development of secondary changes in articular cartilage and subchondral bone.. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used with the aim to replace arthroscopy in the diagnosis of acute knee injuries with hemarthrosis. In patients, knee function and stability were assessed 4 years following conservative treatment of isolated partial MCL ...
The knee joint is responsible for movement and load-bearing. This hinge joint consists of cartilage, tendons, and bones designed to perform different functions. The knee provides support to the body in an upright position, removing pressure from the lower back. Our knees help us in lifting tasks, and act as a shock absorber, limiting the impact from running and jumping. When injuries occur to the ligaments or meniscus, (the cartilage,) the patient may feel symptoms of pain that vary depending on the extent of the damage.. Two of the most common injuries involving ligaments in the knee are sprains or tears of the ACL or MCL. The ACL, (anterior cruciate ligament,) prevents excessive hypertension of the tibia and femur. The MCL, (medial collateral ligament,) prevents extreme side to side motion of the knee joint, providing stability while walking or changing direction.. In this article, we are going to look at eight facts about the MCL, and how you can avoid injuring this ligament.. ...
grade II sprain- Immobilization into extension with long leg brace for 3-6 weeks post injury.. *use of knee bracing with return to sport is a controversial issue. In a 2005 study by Najibi et. al., they compared the risk of MCL re-injury in football players who wore prophylactic knee braces during practice and games vs. players who did not wear a brace. All 987 players had a past history of medial collateral ligament sprain. They concluded that wearing a knee brace offered 20-30% protection to the MCL towards a valgus force in contact sports. Despite this finding many players reported negative effects on performance level, increased leg cramping, increasing energy expenditure, restricting agility and increased fatigue of the LE muscles associated with wearing a brace during activity. Due to the negative effects on performance, compliance with brace use has become a challenge in the athletic population.. ...

The ankle is a "hinged" joint capable of moving the foot in two primary directions: away from the body (plantar flexion) and toward the body (dorsiflexion). It is formed by the meeting of three bones. The end of the shinbone of the leg (tibia) and a small bone in the leg (fibula) meet a large bone in the foot, called the talus, to form the ankle. The end of the shinbone (tibia) forms the inner portion of the ankle, while the end of the fibula forms the outer portion of the ankle. The hard, bony knobs on each side of the ankle are called the malleoli. These provide stability to the ankle joints, which function as weight-bearing joints for the body during standing and walking.. Ligaments on each side of the ankle also provide stability by tightly strapping the outside of the ankle (lateral malleolus) with the lateral collateral ligaments and the inner portion of the ankle (medial malleolus) with the medial collateral ligaments. The ankle joint is surrounded by a fibrous joint capsule. Tendons that ...
The assessment of adequate ulnar collateral supply to the hand is mandatory prior to the harvest of the radial artery as a conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting. However, there is currently no one test which is widely used in all centres. We report a new and objective method of assessing ulnar collateral supply to the hand prior to harvest of the radial artery. This technique involves assessing the presence of a hyperaemic flow response to occlusion of the radial artery using an intraoperative transit time flowmeter. We found this technique to be objective and reliable, and would advocate its use in patients with a positive Allens test ...
Mauro Rosales. e-mail: [email protected] WashingtonPT.com. 10-7-2011. The Sounders return to the home pitch for a game Saturday night against the Philadephia Union. Mauro Rosales is still listed on the Sounders website and the MLS injury report as questionable as of Friday afternoon continuing to nurse a sprained Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) sprain. After 3 weeks it continues to put the Argentine playmaker towards the back end of the original comments by team physicians. This may also lead you to believe that the team is taking the injury more seriously and trying to have Maruo ready for the final play-off run. What is the MCL?. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a strong flat band of fibrous tissue that extends from the medial epicondyle of the femur (thigh bone) to the medial plateau and superior part of the medial surface of the tibia (shin bone). The MCL is a thickening of the fibrous joint capsule and has an attachment to the medial meniscus. The most commont tear is a Grade I sprain. ...

Most patients are able to return home on the same day as surgery or the following day. All patients will need someone to take them home and be with them on the night following surgery.. The anaesthetic will wear off after approximately 6 hours. Simple analgesia (pain killers) usually controls the pain and should be started before the anaesthetic has worn off. Patients need to use crutches for the first 2 weeks following surgery although they can fully weight-bear - the crutches are mainly to prevent falls until good muscle control has been regained to the leg.. Dressings. The large bandage around the knee is normally removed 24-48 hours after surgery and a tubigrip to supply gentle compression to reduce post-operative swelling.. The non-stick sterile dressings on the wounds are replaced with clean waterproof dressings . The larger incision over the site of the hamstring tendon harvest site is closed using dissolving stitches and the paper butterfly sutures overlying this can be peeled away ...
In this study, a novel mechanical testing protocol is used to progressively induce damage in dehydrated rat MCLs by performing tensile tests. This involves stretching the ligaments along their longitudinal axes to consecutive and increasing displacements starting at a 0.4 mm dispalcement and in increments of 0.2 mm until complete failure occurs. The load and change in length that the ligament experiences are measured at each displacement. Three different methods were evaluated to determine subfailure and damage propagation in rat MCLs: changes in tangent stiffness and chord stiffness, and changes in the load value at the 0.4 mm displacement for each load-displacement curve. The findings of this study indicate that the tangent stiffness and load at the 0.4 mm displacement provide information of the early onset of damage propagation. The decrease in chord stiffness of the ligament does not indicate damage progression in the ligament, but rather is the sign of the imminent failure of the MCL.This ...
Dr. Blakes comment: thanks for reaching out. You had quite the injury involving at least 3 structures. If you can send me the images, I can get a better read than the report alone or some random images. My mailing address is Dr. Rich Blake, 900 Hyde Street, San Francisco, California, 94109. There is never a charge for this service, just part of running this blog. What I would recommend if this was me to rest the toe bend this next year. I know that sound alot, and of course you have to evaluate things monthly. You have alot to try to heal, and I think you should give yourself the time to try to heal. You abnormally loaded the big toe joint at some point injuring the medial sesamoid, first metatarsal head, and medial collateral ligament. If surgery was to be done, they would remove the medial sesamoid, perform microfracture surgery on the first met head, and sew up the medial collateral ligament.

Continued From Above... From the femoral region, they extend obliquely across the medial side of the knees anterior, between the medial edge of the patella and the medial (tibial) collateral ligament (MCL). At its inferior end, the medial patellar retinaculum inserts into the medial epicondyle of the tibia.. Several other important connections are formed between the medial patellar retinaculum and its surrounding structures. On its anterior edge, some collagen fibers extend to form connections to the patella and merge with the fibers of the patellar ligament. Posteriorly the fibers weave together with the fibers of the medial collateral ligament.. Like all other tendons, the medial patellar retinaculum is made of dense regular connective tissue. Many strong collagen fibers in this tissue are arranged in a regular pattern with their long axis running vertically. The result is an incredibly strong tissue in the vertical axis, although strength is sacrificed in other directions. Between the ...
In spite of the practical importance of having a detailed knowledge of knee joint innervation to understand the pathophysiologic aspects, little information is now available concerning the density and pattern of the nerve fibres which are distributed to it. The present study has been designed to investigate the density and distribution of nerve fibres and receptor corpuscles in the knee joint articular capsule, cruciate and collateral ligaments in the rat, using the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) histochemical in toto staining technique. The investigation was performed on male Wistar rats of 3 months of age, some of which had been treated with capsaicin to deplete their afferent C fibres of their content of neuropeptides. AChE-positive nerve fibres and different types of receptor corpuscle endings were found within articular capsule and ligaments. The highest density of AChE-positive nerve fibres was noticeable in the fibular collateral ligament followed by the tibial collateral ligament, the ...

I am motivated to write as a sincere thank you and to give back to the internet world more information on the Proximal Tibiofibular Joint Instability. This is a real problem that can fall under the diagnostic radar or at least in my case with mainstream medical because it is not something that can always be directly seen on diagnostic tests. Postero-Inferior Fibula Subluxation:Subluxation: The typical physical features of a postero-inferior subluxation of the fibula include pain at the fibula head, lateral collateral ligament pain at the ankle, lateral hamstring complaints, and restricted anterosuperior fibula joint play. This subluxation is often the result of inversion ankle sprain.
Total derangement or dislocation of the stifle joint is a serious injury usually caused by severe direct or indirect trauma to the knee. The type of dislocation observed depends upon the direction and location of the inciting trauma. Luxation of the stifle joint is not a very common injury because of the many soft tissue structures that interact to provide stability for the joint. These structures include the cranial and caudal cruciate ligaments along with the medial and lateral collateral ligaments. In addition, some support may also be derived from the quadriceps muscle and patella tendon cranially and the oblique poplitcal muscle, hamstring muscles, and the gastroenemius muscle, caudally. In many cases, fractures may accompany dislocations. Other structures are also likely to be injured including the menisci, joint capsule, popliteal artery, and peroneal nerve. Vascular integrity and neurologic function must be carefully evaluated as these complications usually are the limiting factor in the ...
Methods Consecutive patients with gout, diagnosed according to the 2015 ACR/EULAR criteria, and disease controls diagnosed according to the corresponding diagnostic/classification criteria were enrolled. All the patients underwent a bilateral US examination (carried out using a Logiq 9 US system working with a linear probe operating at 15 MHz) at the popliteus groove level. The US examination was performed with the patient lying supine on the examination bed. A knee flexion of approximately 45° was necessary to visualize the popliteus groove in the lateral aspect of the femoral condyle just deep to the proximal part of the lateral collateral ligament. The following US abnormalities indicative of MSU crystal depositions were evaluated: isolated shining dots, aggregates (heterogeneous hyperechoic foci that maintain their persistent high degree of reflectivity which occasionally may generate posterior acoustic shadow) and tophi (inhomogeneous hyperechoic/hypoechic material surrounded by a small ...
Repetitive overhead throwing can damage the elbow Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL). The UCL is one of the main stabilizers of the elbow during the throwing motion. It is located on the inside (or medial aspect) of the elbow. Throwing a baseball places a tremendous amount of stress on the ligament. In fact, research has shown that the stress generated by each pitch approaches the maximum load that the ligament can withstand. The reason why it doesnt tear more frequently is that other muscles of the forearm help stabilize the elbow. Additionally, the larger muscles of the body including the legs, core and shoulder help protect against injury.. When the ligament tears, players will get pain on the inside of their elbow. Sometimes, if it is an acute injury, the player will describe hearing or feeling a "pop" on the throw. More commonly, these injuries are chronic or acute-on-chronic in nature. Baseball players may complain of decreased throwing velocity, poor control or the feeling that it takes ...

The elements that give stability to the joints are the ligaments. They are arranged in a certain way in the joint to avoid movements that the joint should not perform.. In the case of the knee are 4 ligaments whose only function is to keep it stable: the collateral ligaments and the cruciate ligaments. Here is an image with the graphic representation of the different structures of the knee joint:. On the collateral ligaments, we will not explain too much because they are not the central theme of the article: these are located one on each side of the knee (i.e. an internal collateral ligament and an external collateral ligament).. On the other hand, we will speak in depth of the cruciate ligaments, within the joint capsule of the knee. The cruciate ligaments are 2 structures that are very deep in the knee joint. The cruciate ligaments are 2: one that is located in the anterior part and one that is located in the back.. The posterior cruciate ligament extends between the posterior intercondylar ...
Ligament sprains range from mild stretches to partial tears. In the majority of cases these. Usually, an ankle sprain itself does not require a trip to the doctor. Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. It is one of the most common complaints during pregnancy and is considered. Plantar fasciitis ( inflammation to the plantar fascia ligament) is most commonly caused by strain injury causing micro tears to the ligament as it attaches to the heel bone or other areas of. This configuration allows the PCL to resist forces pushing the tibia posteriorly relative to the femur. Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that connect bones. The PCL - - similar to the anterior cruciate ligament ( ACL) - - connects. The medial collateral ligament, or MCL, is located on the inner part of the knee joint. Ligament injuries create disruptions in the balance between joint mobility and joint stability, causing abnormal force transmission throughout the joint ...
Lateral ankle ligament injuries (also known as inversion injuries) commonly occur when catching the heel on the edge of a step when descending stairs, twisting the ankle unexpectedly on uneven ground or when playing sports requiring rapid changes of direction such as football, rugby, basketball and netball. The stretching, twisting and/or tearing of the ligament results in a classic ankle sprain.. Ligaments are the strong bands of connective tissue which run through our joints to help provide strength and stability. The most important ligament complex of the ankle, the lateral ligament complex (on the outside of the ankle) provides the secondary support to the joint when the ankle rolls inwards (inverts). ...

A knee dislocation is the displacement of the tibiofemoral articulation (Figure 88-1). It involves the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament, the posterior cruciate ligament, the joint capsule, and/or the collateral ligaments of the knee. Anterior knee dislocations are the most common type of knee dislocation. This injury is defined as anterior displacement of the tibia relative to the femur (Figure 88-1A). It results from an acute hyperextension injury to the knee joint that ruptures the anterior cruciate ligament completely, the posterior cruciate ligament partially, and the posterior joint capsule. The distal femur is driven posterior to the proximal tibia. The collateral ligaments usually remain intact. Tibial spine fractures, osteochondral fractures of the tibia or femur, and meniscal injuries are avulsion-type fractures resulting from the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. Distal femoral epiphyseal separation, rather than complete dislocation, as a result of a hyper-extension ...
Traumatic dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the middle cranial fossa complicated by temporal lobe intracerebral hemorrhage: literature review and our case
Ankle sprains are one of the most common soft-tissue injuries and are especially prevalent at all levels of sport, with lateral sprains accounting for 85% of all such injuries.1 The lateral ankle ligament complex consists of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL), the calcaneofibular ligament (CFL), and the posterior talofibular ligament (PTFL).2 They provide lateral stability to the ankle joint, which is more complex than a simple rolling hinge joint. As the talus rotates internally and externally within the mortice of the ankle as the joint moves, a single ligament on the lateral aspect of the ankle would not be able to provide stability at all the positions of the tibiotalar joint.3. The terms ankle ligament laxity, lateral ankle instability, and chronic ankle instability are often used interchangeably. Laxity is a physical sign that is objectively detected on examination. Lateral ankle instability is a symptom, which identifies the presence of an unstable ankle resulting from lateral ...
