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)

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 ...
Mike. Hi Mike -. Thank you so much for your question. I am so sorry to hear about your collateral ligament injury. Ive had two serious collateral ligament injuries on my left index finger (where I had to take off time from climbing) and one minor one on my right index finger (where I didnt take any time off, I buddy taped for a couple weeks and it healed). They can definitely be a frustrating injury and depending on the severity, can take some time to heal. My first injury was a result of crimping really hard while training on my wall in my garage. Im especially crushed if I injure myself in the gym, as there are no good stories to tag onto the injury. Luckily, my most recent collateral injury was back when I was working on Cosmic Debris (5.13b) in Yosemite, so I felt a little more rad with that injury.. Crack climbing can be especially damaging to collateral ligaments, torquing the joint sideways and putting an unusual amount of stress on the short, thick piece of connective tissue. Cosmic ...

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:. ...
among millennials, refers to injury of the unlar collateral ligament (UCL) of the thumbs metacarpal phalangeal (MP) joint. This occurs when the abnormal pulling of the thumb, such as that from a fall or harsh pull while affixed to the ski pole/hoop, causes a forced abduction or hyperextension of the proximal phalanx of the thumb. If unaddressed, this injury is further exacerbated by the repetitive use of the injured thumb in texting.. Friction Blisters. While the most common concerns during baseball season include pitch count and the stress that excessive pitching and throwing has on a players elbow and shoulder over the course of a baseball season, these generally occur mid to late season following many practices and games.. A lesser known injury often occurs as the season gets started and impacts pitchers in particular - friction blisters. The repeated trauma created between the baseball seams and the fingers of the pitching hand, predominately at the tips of the index and long fingers, can ...

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.. ...
Definition of medial collateral ligament injury in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is medial collateral ligament injury? Meaning of medial collateral ligament injury as a legal term. What does medial collateral ligament injury mean in law?
The lateral collateral ligament (LCL) is one of the four knee ligaments. It spans the distance from the end of the femur (thigh bone) to the top of the fibula (thin, outer, lower leg bone) and is on the outside of the knee.. The lateral collateral ligament resists widening of the outside of the joint. A lateral collateral ligament injury happens from a direct force from the side of the knee, causing moderate to severe knee pain and ligament injury which often leads to knee surgery.. It is a much less frequent ligament injury than the medial collateral ligament (MCL) but commonly occurs with other ligament injury to the knee.. The MCL spans the distance from the end of the femur (thigh bone) to the top of the tibia (shin bone) and is on the inside of the knee joint. The medial collateral ligament resists widening of the inside of the joint, or prevents opening-up of the knee.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of cyclic stretching on the tensile properties of patellar tendon and medial collateral ligament in rat. AU - Su, Wei Ren. AU - Chen, Hsiang Ho. AU - Luo, Zong Ping. PY - 2008/8. Y1 - 2008/8. N2 - Background: Although dynamic stretching is often prescribed before exercise is undertaken, research has rarely been conducted to determine what effects dynamic stretching has on tendon and ligament injury prevention. The hypothesis is that the mechanical properties of tendon and ligament will increase in an ultimate tensile loading test after sinusoid cyclic stretching. Methods: Ten paired rat medial collateral ligaments and patellar tendons were used with and without 150 sinusoid cyclic stretching in either side to determine the influence of cyclic stretching on the mechanical behavior of the tendons and ligaments. Findings: The increase in ultimate stress and elastic modulus was significant after sinusoid cycling in both the medial collateral ligaments and the patellar tendons. ...

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is injured by a valgus or rotational stress. A valgus stress is a force that pushes the knee in and the lower leg
TY - JOUR. T1 - Valgus stability of the elbow. A definition of primary and secondary constraints. AU - Morrey, B. F.. AU - Tanaka, S.. AU - An, K. N.. PY - 1991/12/1. Y1 - 1991/12/1. N2 - The stabilizing structures of the elbow that resist valgus stress were studied with a tracking device in a model simulating active motion and muscle activity. By varying the order of serial release of the medial collateral ligament complex and removal of the radial head, each structures contribution to valgus stability against the effect of gravity was determined. In the otherwise intact elbow, absence of the radial head does not significantly alter the three-dimensional characteristics of motion in the elbow joint. Isolated medial collateral release, on the other hand, causes increases in abduction rotation of about 6°-8° in magnitude. Releasing both structures results in gross abduction laxity and elbow subluxation. This study defines the medial collateral ligament (MCL) as the primary constraint of the ...
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.. ...
HealthTap: Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Dearborn on medial collateral ligament tear treatment: Laxity is an orthopaedic term for looseness. Normally, ligaments dont really stretch much. If a ligament gets partially torn, it can be functionally lengthened which can make a joint unstable. Some people have more lax ligaments than others. If there are no symptoms of instability, no worries!
If you are an avid runner, you may be well acquainted with annoying aches and pains. However, pain in the medial collateral ligament -- the thick band that...

Ultrasound has been proposed to advance the procedures involved in break healing and therefore increase its rate. Sun et al. , ( 2001 ) investigated the effects of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound on bone cells in vitro, and found a important addition in osteoblast cell counts and a important lessening in osteoclast cell count after stimulation, proposing a positive consequence on the bone-healing procedure. Nolte et al. , ( 2001 ) besides studied the in vitro effects of low strength ultrasound. The latter used fetal mouse metatarsal basicss and found an addition in length of the calcified shaft, which was significantly greater in the ultrasound treated groups compared to the untreated groups, after 7 yearss. Therefore they concluded that low-intensity ultrasound straight affects bone-forming cells and ossifying gristle, with eventful more active ossification.. Cyclooxygenase-2 regulates the production of Prostaglandin E2 by bone-forming cells, both of which are thought to be an indispensable ...

Two ligaments, one on either side of the knee, prevent the knee from moving from side to side too much: Medial collateral ligament, which is on the inside of the leg Lateral collateral ligament, which is on the outside of the leg Two ligaments inside the joint (cruciate ligaments) prevent the knee from moving forward or backward too much: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) The ACL crosses in front of the PCL, forming an X. The menisci are pads of cartilage that act as cushions between the thighbone (femur) and larger lower leg bone (tibia), which form part of the knee joint.. ...
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. You would be off your foot for months on crutches and scooters, and this would be bad for the ...

How do you apply ice? Crushed ice in a plastic bag is usually best. However, blocks of ice, commercial cold packs and bags of frozen peas will all do fine. Even cold water from a tap is better than nothing at all.. When using ice, be careful not to apply it directly to the skin. This can cause ice burns and further skin damage. Wrapping the ice in a damp towel generally provides the best protection for the skin.. How long, how often? This is the point where few people agree. Let me give you some figures to use, as a rough guide, and then I will give you some advice from personal experience. The most common recommendation is to apply ice for 20 minutes every 2 hours for the first 48 to 72 hours.. These figures are a good starting point, but remember they are only a guide. You must take into account that some people are more sensitive to cold than others are. Also, be aware that children and elderly people have a lower tolerance to ice and cold. Finally, people with circulatory problems are also ...
Medial collateral ligament Injury of the knee (MCL Tear) are the most common ligament injuries of the knee and are frequently associated with ACL tears. They are cause by either a direct blow (more severe tear) or a non-contact injury (less severe). Treatment is usually bracing unless there is gross varus instability in which case repair or reconstruction is performed.
A medial collateral ligament injury can range from a mild sprain to a complete MCL tear. The hallmark symptom of an MCL injury is medial knee pain.
The aim of this prospective randomized controlled trial was to compare the effectiveness of surgical and conservative treatment in acute lateral ligament injury of ankle. The more detailed aims were to assess the function, physical activity level, re-injuries, objective stability and radiographic changes seen by magnetic resonance imaging in patients randomized to surgery or to functional treatment after a mean of 14 years follow-up ...
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 ...
ICD-9 code 717.82 for Old disruption of medial collateral ligament is a medical classification as listed by WHO under the range - ARTHROPATHIES AND RE
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 want to share My Story and Chronological History in diagnosing lateral knee pain. 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.
Partial lateral knee replacement is a surgery to replace only the lateral part of your damaged knee. It is also called unicompartmental knee replacement. The knee is one of the largest and complex joints in your body. The joint is connected to your thigh bones and bones of the lower leg by various ligaments. The knee joint is made of three compartments. The lateral, the medial and the patellofemoral compartment. The outside part of the knee is the lateral compartment. It consists of a Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL). ...
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 ...

My son is in 10th grade. He started his workout program in Dec 09, with weights and cardio. In the begining of Jan 10 he started his pitching, with his pitching coach. As always, he starts out slow and picks it up each week. At the end of Jan, he started to hit with his hitting coach. Everything was going great. During one of his lessons in late Feb 10, the last pitch, he felt a pop. The pitching coach told him to take a week off. My son came back next week and could not throw. I got my son right into a sports doctor. He told him he had tendinitis. Rest and etc. A week went by and he had pain. I took him to another doctor and he order a MRI. The results came back as a tear of the anterior aspect of the medial or ulnar collateral ligament.

The blood pressure in blood vessels is traditionally expressed in millimetres of mercury (1 mmHg = 133 Pa). In the arterial system, this is usually around 120 mmHg systolic (high pressure wave due to contraction of the heart) and 80 mmHg diastolic (low pressure wave). In contrast, pressures in the venous system are constant and rarely exceed 10 mmHg. Vascular resistance occurs where the vessels away from the heart oppose the flow of blood. Resistance is an accumulation of three different factors: blood viscosity, blood vessel length, and vessel radius.[2] Blood viscosity is the thickness of the blood and its resistance to flow as a result of the different components of the blood. Blood is 92% water by weight and the rest of blood is composed of protein, nutrients, electrolytes, wastes, and dissolved gases. Depending on the health of an individual, the blood viscosity can vary (i.e. anemia causing relatively lower concentrations of protein, high blood pressure an increase in dissolved salts or ...
