The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".

Sonographic evaluation of the posterior cruciate ligament in amputated specimens and normal subjects. (2/145)

The purpose of this study was to define the sonographic appearance and echogenicity of the normal posterior cruciate ligament. We examined the posterior cruciate ligament of five amputated specimens and five normal subjects using a 10 MHz linear array transducer. One K-wire was inserted into the substance of the posterior cruciate ligament of the amputated knee specimens to verify the location of the ligament on the sonogram. Various angles of insonation were used to examine the echogenicity of the posterior cruciate ligament. The results showed that the in situ posterior cruciate ligament appeared as a hypoechoic band relative to the surrounding tissue on sonograms, but it appeared hyperechoic when it was isolated and immersed in a water bath. The specific spatial orientation of the posterior cruciate ligament and anisotropy phenomenon contributed to the hypoechogenicity of the posterior cruciate ligament in situ on sonogram.  (+info)

Eccentric and concentric isokinetic moment characteristics in the quadriceps and hamstrings of the chronic isolated posterior cruciate ligament injured knee. (3/145)

OBJECTIVE: Functional strength deficits associated with chronic isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) insufficiency have received limited attention in the literature. The purpose of this study was to determine the eccentric and concentric isokinetic moment characteristics of the quadriceps and hamstrings in a sample of patients with isolated PCL injury. METHODS: Eccentric and concentric mean average and average peak moments were measured for 17 patients with a history of conservatively treated isolated PCL injury using an isokinetic dynamometer. Quadriceps and hamstring isokinetic moments were recorded from 10 degree to 90 degree of knee flexion. Strength ratios were calculated and compared with those reported in the literature for healthy subjects. RESULTS: The hamstrings of the involved side (eccentric/concentric (E/C) ratio = 1.06) were significantly weaker (p<0.05) eccentrically than those of the contralateral side (E/C ratio = 1.29). All hamstrings/quadriceps (H/Q) ratios were less than the universally accepted value of 0.60 and the eccentric H/Q ratio for the injured extremity was significantly lower than the non-injured (p<0.05). In a bilateral comparison, the injured/non-injured (I/N) ratio was less than 1.00 for concentric quadriceps, eccentric quadriceps, and hamstring isokinetic moments. Calculation of the E/C ratio showed that, for the quadriceps, it was 1.08 on the injured side and 1.07 on the non-injured extremity. CONCLUSIONS: Eccentric strengthening should be an integral part of functionally rehabilitating the quadriceps and hamstrings of athletes who suffer from the complications associated with chronic isolated PCL insufficiency.  (+info)

Primary repair of the cruciate and collateral ligaments after traumatic dislocation of the knee. (4/145)

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)

The intercruciate band of the human knee. An anatomical and histological study. (5/145)

Thirty cruciate ligaments were retrieved from either cadavers or limbs which had been amputated. Each specimen was sectioned and stained to demonstrate the presence of collagen, nerves and vessels. All 30 specimens contained an interconnecting band of collagen fibres between the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments. Vascular structures were present in all specimens and nerve fibres were identified in 26 (86%). We have called this structure the 'intercruciate band'. The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments should no longer be thought of in isolation, but together as a 'cruciate complex'.  (+info)

Technical evolution of arthoscopic knee surgery. (6/145)

The widespread growth of arthroscopic techniques and their use has dramatically changed the practice of orthopaedic surgery. A high degree of clinical accuracy and minimally invasive procedure with a low surgical morbidity have encouraged the use of arthroscopy to assist in diagnosis, to determine prognosis and to provide treatment. In particular, the knee is the proper joint in which arthroscopy has its diagnostic and intraarticular surgical application. The rapid advancement of arthroscopic techniques has demonstrated a variety of surgical techniques in procedures such as meniscectomy, meniscal repair and cruciate ligament reconstruction during the last decade. This article reviews the past history of arthroscopy and technical evolution of arthroscopy in knee surgery in our department.  (+info)

Posterior cruciate ligament function following total knee arthroplasty: the effect of joint line elevation. (7/145)

One of the most commonly cited reasons for retaining the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) during total knee arthroplasty is to preserve femoral rollback and theoretically improve extensor mechanism efficiency (lengthening the moment arm). This study was undertaken to assess PCL function in this regard and to delineate the effects of joint line elevation that can be manipulated intraoperatively by the surgeon. The anterior movement of tibiofemoral contact following PCL resection at flexion angles 60 degrees demonstrated the beneficial effect of the PCL on extensor function. This anterior translation and the concomitant increases in quadriceps tendon load and patellofemoral contact pressures were consistently observed. This study demonstrated that small changes of the joint line position significantly influenced PCL strain and knee kinematics. In order to preserve the desired functions that would be lost with an overly lax PCL and to avoid the potential adverse effects of an overly tight PCL (posterior edge loading and increased tibiofemoral contact), the surgeon should make every effort to restore the preoperative joint line. If this is not possible, consideration should be given to posterior cruciate recession or use of a posterior cruciate substituting design.  (+info)

Retain or sacrifice the posterior cruciate ligament in total knee arthroplasty? A histopathological study of the cruciate ligament in osteoarthritic and rheumatoid disease. (8/145)

BACKGROUND: The decision whether to retain or resect the posterior cruciate ligament in total knee arthroplasty is at present determined clinically by preoperative radiological variables focusing upon the amount of joint destruction, and subsequent soft tissue contractures. However, these variables give only indirect information on the histological integrity and proprioceptive properties of the posterior cruciate ligament. METHODS: Twenty posterior cruciate ligaments, obtained during total knee arthroplasty, were evaluated histologically to study the relation between the degree of preoperative radiological joint destruction, structural integrity of the posterior cruciate ligament and the neurological integrity of the targeted tissue. Eleven patients had osteoarthritis and nine patients rheumatoid arthritis. Haematoxylin and eosin, Alcian blue (mucoid degeneration), elastica von Gieson, Gomori (elastic fibres and collagen), and immunohistochemical staining for neural structures were used. RESULTS: In all but one of the posterior cruciate ligaments, morphologically intact neural tissue was present in the peritendineum of the ligaments. Structural integrity of the collagen framework was present in only seven posterior cruciate ligaments. These cases all had grade three or four radiological joint destruction. In 13 of the specimens a certain degree of mucoid degeneration of collagen was present. All patients with grade five radiological knee joint destruction displayed mucoid degeneration and irregularity of the posterior cruciate ligament fibres. CONCLUSION: Because of the extensive architectural and probably functional damage of the posterior cruciate ligament in patients who have grade five radiological knee joint destruction, retention of the posterior cruciate ligament in knee prosthesis should not be advocated.  (+info)

Functional integrity of the posterior cruciate ligament is essential for cruciate retaining knee prostheses. Furthermore, these prostheses could benefit from the proprioceptive properties of the intact posterior cruciate ligament. However, posterior cruciate ligaments with a normal appearance were present in only three knee joints with grade three or four radiological knee joint destruction. Most of the posterior cruciate ligaments had extensive mucoid degeneration and irregular collagen fibre orientation. These extensive changes in the structural properties of the posterior cruciate ligament were present in radiological knee joint destruction grade five as well. However, intact neurological properties were present in all but one posterior cruciate ligament (grade five radiological destruction).. Morphological studies concerning the posterior cruciate ligament of the knee have been performed with non-specific neural staining techniques,15-18 thus overestimating or underestimating neural tissue ...
The function of the PCL is to prevent the femur from sliding off the anterior edge of the tibia and to prevent the tibia from displacing posterior to the femur. Common causes of PCL injuries are direct blows to the flexed knee, such as the knee hitting the dashboard in a car accident or falling hard on the knee, both instances displacing the tibia posterior to the femur. The posterior drawer test is one of the tests used by doctors and physiotherapists to detect injury to the PCL. Surgery to repair the posterior cruciate ligament is controversial due to its placement and technical difficulty. An additional test of posterior cruciate ligament injury is the posterior sag test, where, in contrast to the drawer test, no active force is applied. Rather, the person lies supine with the leg held by another person so that the hip is flexed to 90 degrees and the knee 90 degrees. The main parameter in this test is step-off, which is the shortest distance from the femur to a hypothetical line that tangents ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Acute insufficiency of the posterior cruciate ligament in children. Two case reports. AU - Sanders, W. E.. AU - Wilkins, K. E.. AU - Neidre, A.. PY - 1980/1/1. Y1 - 1980/1/1. N2 - Injury to the ligaments of the knee in young children is relatively rare due to the resiliency of the ligaments and the relative weakness of the physis. Epiphyseal injury therefore is more apt to occur. The most common injury that occurs when the cruciate ligaments in children are stressed is avulsion of the anterior tibial spine, and this isolated injury usually does not result in significant laxity of the ligaments after healing. Acute insufficiency of the posterior cruciate ligament has been recognized in adults and has recently been reported in a child. We saw two young children with an avulsion of the posterior cruciate ligament that apparently occurred after hyperextension of the knee. In our experience, when hyperextension injury produces insufficiency of the posterior cruciate ligament, the ...

Seventeen randomised controlled trials (with 1810 patients and 2206 knees) were found, described in 18 articles. Ten of these were new studies compared to the previous Cochrane Review. One study from the original Cochrane review was excluded. Most new studies compared a posterior cruciate ligament retaining design with a posterior stabilised design, in which the posterior cruciate ligament is sacrificed (a posterior stabilised design has an insert with a central post which can engage on a femoral cam during flexion).. The quality of evidence (graded with the GRADE approach) and the risk of bias were highly variable, ranging from moderate to low quality evidence and with unclear or low risk of bias for most domains, respectively.. The performance outcome range of motion was 2.4 ° higher in favour of posterior cruciate ligament sacrifice (118.3 ° versus 115.9 °; 95% confidence interval (CI) of the difference 0.13 to 4.67; P = 0.04), however the results were heterogeneous.

BACKGROUND: The purpose of our study was to identify factors affecting posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tightness during cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty. METHODS: A total of 225 varus osteoarthritic knees that underwent cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty were included in this study. When the flexion gap was tighter than the extension gap after all bone resection and the lift-off sign was positive during surgery, the PCL was released. The association between PCL release and potential risk factors, such as age, gender, body mass index, preoperative range of motion, anterior cruciate ligament status, preoperative hip-knee-ankle angle (HKA), decrease in posterior condylar offset, and also change in tibial posterior slope angle (TPSA) from preoperative to postoperative measurement, was evaluated by univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses ...

The posterior cruciate ligament (or PCL) is one of the four major ligaments of the knee. It connects the posterior intercondylar area of the tibia to the medial condyle of the femur. This configuration allows the PCL to resist forces pushing the tibia posteriorly relative to the femur. The PCL is an intracapsular ligament along with the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) because it lies deep within the knee joint. They are both isolated from the fluid-filled synovial cavity, with the synovial membrane wrapped around them. The PCL gets its name by attaching to the posterior portion of the tibia. The PCL is located within the knee joint where it stabilizes the articulating bones, particularly the femur and the tibia, during movement. It originates from the lateral edge of the medial femoral condyle and the roof of the intercondyle notch then stretches, at a posterior and lateral angle, toward the posterior of the tibia just below its articular surface. Although each PCL is a unified unit, they are ...

Harvard Medical School. Abstract: Total knee arthroplasty has evolved into a very successful procedure to relieve pain and restore function in the arthritic knee with advanced structural damage. Optimal results are dependent on the restoration of alignment and ligament stability. Operative techniques involve either preservation of the posterior cruciate ligament or substitution of its function through increased prosthetic constraint. The vast majority of knees do not require cruciate substitution to establish appropriate stability and function.

This video demonstrates our technique for arthroscopic repair of a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) avulsion in a 12-year-old child. No consensus exists with regard to the treatment of children with a PCL avulsion. Patients who undergo nonsurgical treatment for a PCL avulsion are at risk for persistent PCL insufficiency because of secondary displacement or nonunion of the fragment, which may lead to secondary meniscal injury and early articular degeneration. Surgical management of PCL avulsions is associated with the inherent risks of surgery and may result in iatrogenic physeal injury, especially in children younger than 10 years, in whom surgical management of PCL avulsions is relatively contraindicated. Growth arrest is a minor concern in children older than 12 years because no implants are necessary and a unique, small-diameter tibial tunnel is used for passage of the traction sutures for final fixation. We prefer a transseptal approach, posteromedial and posterolateral portals, and the use of an

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) research and surgical technique development has exponentially evolved during the last years, due to the better understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics and improved surgical tools. Early studies reported good outcomes following nonoperative treatment of PCL injuries [1,2]. However, as research and understanding on these injuries have progressed, nonoperative management results have trended towards poor patient outcomes and early osteoarthritis following severe isolated or combined PCL injuries [3-5]. The PCL is an extrasynovial, extra-articular structure that provides resistance to posterior tibial translation. The PCL also acts as a secondary restraint to internal rotation between 90 and 120 degrees of flexion [6]. The PCL is made up of two bundles that act synergistically: the anterolateral bundle (ALB) and the posteromedial bundle (PMB). However, recent biomechanical and anatomic studies have shown that both bundles act in conjunction in the anteroposterior ...

Because injuries to the PCL and posterolateral structures occur with less frequency than other structures in the knee joint (such as the anterior cruciate ligament and menisci), fewer studies are available to assist the surgeon and patient with appropriate decision-making regarding conservative versus surgical treatment. The majority of patients who sustain injury to these structures are treated conservatively. Unfortunately, several investigations describe noteworthy symptoms and functional limitations following conservative management, and a high percentage of patients develop knee osteoarthritis that can be disabling for both recreational and daily activities. The investigators of this study have nearly three decades of experience and have extensively studied the effects of this injury in both the laboratory and clinic settings. It is our opinion that surgical reconstruction provides significant benefit when appropriately indicated, as has been demonstrated in our previous studies. Especially ...

Did you know that one out of three adults aged 65 and older fall each year? Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Our ability to balance when walking or moving can change for a number of reasons. As we age, there is a natural loss of balance due to slowing down of reflexes, muscle weakness and tissue changes. In addition, arthritis in the ankles, knee or hips can affect balance. Furthermore, any neurological changes such as Parkinsons Disease, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries, back problems and much more can play a role in diminished balance.. Our ability to balance relies mainly on 3 factors. Our ability to perceive movement comes from the nerve sensors in our joints and muscles, our vision and the position of our head in space through the vestibular system in the inner ear. When any one of these factors is not optimum, our ability to balance is affected and our risk for falling greatly increases.. People are often not aware of their change in ...

Did you know that one out of three adults aged 65 and older fall each year? Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Our ability to balance when walking or moving can change for a number of reasons. As we age, there is a natural loss of balance due to slowing down of reflexes, muscle weakness and tissue changes. In addition, arthritis in the ankles, knee or hips can affect balance. Furthermore, any neurological changes such as Parkinsons Disease, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries, back problems and much more can play a role in diminished balance.. Our ability to balance relies mainly on 3 factors.

With females having smaller bones, ligaments, and muscles, which implies less surface area for attachment and support (integrity); and a more-narrow groove between the femoral epicondyles (bony structures at the lower end of the femurs) through which two major knee ligaments pass (anterior cruciate ligament - ACL and posterior cruciate ligament - PCL), this creates additional injury risks as these ligaments undergo more shearing during movement, especially during rotational-type movement between the femur and tibia. Consider as well, gender-specific hormones (e.g., relaxin) and concentration levels which create greater joint laxity; and the slight gender difference in bone shape at the knee (upper part of tibia - tibial plateau is shorter and more rounded), and what you have is a greater potential for knee injuries in females, especially within the ACL (5). In fact, college-aged females suffer 2 - 6x the number of knee injuries playing the same sports as men, and approximately 70% of these ACL ...

Calcific periarthritis in the distal femur is a rare condition. Forty two year old Asian male visited to the outpatient clinic of orthopedic department with acute excruciating knee pain. The arthroscopic posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction was performed 20 years ago with the bonepatellar tendon-bone (BPTB) autograft combined with Trevira (polyethylene terephthalate) artificial ligament. Severe tenderness was noted incidentally over the medial epicondyle area of the distal femur which the cancellous screw was inserted for PCL reconstruction, without any preceding trauma history or medial joint line tenderness due to degenerative change. The poorly defined calcific deposition was found in plain radiograph. The arthroscopic debridement of the calcification and screw removal from the distal femur was performed due to resist to conservative treatment with analgesics. After operation, the symptoms were resolved completely. The arthroscopic debridement of calcific periarthritis should be ...
Aim: The purpose of the study was to improve the ultrasonographic assessment of the anterior cruciate ligament by an inclusion of a dynamic element. The proposed functional modification aims to restore normal posterior cruciate ligament tension, which is associated with a visible change in the ligament shape. This method reduces the risk of an error resulting from subjectively assessing the shape of the posterior cruciate ligament. It should be also emphasized that the method combined with other ultrasound anterior cruciate ligament assessment techniques helps increase diagnostic accuracy. Methods: Ultrasonography is used as an adjunctive technique in the diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament injury. The paper presents a sonographic technique for the assessment of suspected anterior cruciate ligament insufficiency supplemented by the use of a dynamic examination. This technique can be recommended as an additional procedure in routine ultrasound diagnostics of anterior cruciate ligament ...
We describe the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and complications of a 27-year-old male paraskiier who sustained a closed high-velocity knee dislocation after colliding with a tree at a speed of 45 mph and falling 40 feet to the ground. Extensive surgery to repair and reconstruct the knee included open lateral capsular repair, open anatomical posterolateral corner reconstruction with split Achilles tendon allograft, open iliotibial band reconstruction with Achilles tendon allograft, arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft, and double-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with Achilles tendon allograft for the anterolateral bundle and tibialis anterior tendon allograft for the posteromedial bundle ...
VAN GRAAN, W y VAN DER MERWE, W. The influence of posterior condylar offset on maximum knee flexion: a retrospective analytical study. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.1, pp.65-68. ISSN 2309-8309.. BACKGROUND: Achieving maximum knee flexion following total knee replacement (TKR) remains a major goal for every knee arthroplasty surgeon. Studies to understand the kinematics of the knee therefore remain of utmost importance. Speculation remains regarding what the correct posterior condylar ratio should be after surgery and whether a change in posterior condylar offset will have an impact on the amount of flexion achieved. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the role of the posterior condylar offset on knee flexion and whether a change in posterior condylar offset influenced the amount of flexion achieved. Since multiple causes for a change in knee flexion have been identified before, we have tried to eliminate as many variables as possible to keep our focus on the influence on ...

Spatial change of cruciate ligaments in rat embryo knee joint by three-dimensional reconstruction[3] This study aimed to analyze the spatial developmental changes of rat cruciate ligaments by three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction using episcopic fluorescence image capture (EFIC). Cruciate ligaments of Wister rat embryos between embryonic day (E) 16 and E20 were analyzed. Samples were sectioned and visualized using EFIC. 3D reconstructions were generated using Amira software. The length of the cruciate ligaments, distances between attachment points to femur and tibia, angles of the cruciate ligaments and the cross angle of the cruciate ligaments were measured. The shape of cruciate ligaments was clearly visible at E17. The lengths of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) increased gradually from E17 to E19 and drastically at E20. Distances between attachment points to the femur and tibia gradually increased. The ACL angle and PCL angle gradually decreased. ...

Proper soft tissue tension is one of the important factors in mobile-bearing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We evaluated varus/valgus laxities, particularly at flexion, which is a key factor in reducing the risk of subluxation and dislocation of bearings to assess the effect that the flexion angle and the presence or absence of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) have on laxity in patients with low-contact stress (LCS) prostheses of the PCL-retaining (24 patients, 24 knees) and PCL-sacrificing (24 patients, 24 knees) type designs during extension and flexion. Both types of prosthesis had about 4 degrees laxity at extension and 3 degrees at flexion. Read More ...
The ACL provides approximately 85% of total restraining force of anterior translation. It also prevents excessive tibial medial and lateral rotation, as well as varus and valgus stresses. To a lesser degree, the ACL checks extension and hyperextension. Together with the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), the ACL guides the instantaneous center of rotation of the knee, therefore controlling joint kinematics. While the anteromedial bundle is the primary restraint against anterior tibial translation, the posterolateral bundle tends to stabilize the knee near full extension, particularly against rotatory loads.. After ACL injury, regardless of whether surgery will take place or not, physiotherapy management focuses on regaining range of movement, strength, proprioception and stability.. RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) should be used in order to reduce swelling and pain, to attempt full range of motion and to decrease joint effusion.. Exercises should encourage range of movement, ...

If surgery is carried out to repair a torn ACL, your doctor will usually advise that you wait some weeks after your initial injury. The ACL ligament cannot simply be stitched back together. Instead, surgery to reconstruct, or rebuild, the ACL is usually carried out. Usually tendons from within your own body or sometimes, tendons from someone else (a donor) may also be used to repair your ACL. The tendon is fixed in place inside your knee joint, using staples or screws. Once fixed in place, over time, a new ligament should grow over the tendon that has been used. Keyhole surgery is usually used to reconstruct your ACL. There is currently some debate as to the best way to treat PCL injury - with surgery, or without surgery. Surgery is not often needed for MCL injuries.. How long does a knee ligament injury take to heal?. This will depend on which knee ligament you have injured and also how severe your injury is. Also, if you have injured more than one ligament in your knee, recovery may take ...

Andrea Biscarini, Fabio M. Botti, and Vito E. PettorossiWe developed a biomechanical model to determine the joint torques and loadings during squatting with a backward/forward-inclined Smith machine. The Smith squat allows a large variety of body positioning (trunk tilt, foot placement, combinations of joint angles) and easy control of weight distribution between forefoot and heel. These distinctive aspects of the exercise can be managed concurrently with the equipment inclination selected to unload specific joint structures while activating specific muscle groups. A backward (forward) equipment inclination decreases (increases) knee torque, and compressive tibiofemoral and patellofemoral forces, while enhances (depresses) hip and lumbosacral torques. For small knee flexion angles, the strain-force on the posterior cruciate ligament increases (decreases) with a backward (forward) equipment inclination, whereas for large knee flexion angles, this behavior is reversed. In the 0 to 60 degree range of knee
The effect of the interaction between gender and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) prosthesis design on patient-reported outcomes is an understudied area of research. We evaluated 1613 patients, from the Ontario Joint Replacement Registry (2001-2006), who underwent primary total knee replacement. This study investigated the impact of the gender-PCL design interaction on Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) change scores and patient satisfaction, by performing linear regression analysis, using full-adjusted models that also included the gender-PCL prosthesis design interaction variable. PCL prosthesis design did not affect WOMAC change scores or satisfaction (p|0.05). Moreover, Gender did not influence either of the patient-reported outcomes (p|0.05). In addition, the interaction between gender and PCL design did not impact patient-reported outcomes (p|0.05). In conclusion, the surgical preference to retain or sacrifice the PCL should not be influenced by the gender of
Femoral component for a knee prosthesis adapted to cooperate with an insert attached to a tibial plateau anchored at the upper end of a tibia. The femoral component is adapted to be anchored at a lower end of a femur, the femoral component including a first lateral condyle, a second lateral condyle, and an intercondylar space disposed between the first and second condyles for receiving a third removably fixed condyle. The third condyle is removable from the intercondyle space while the femoral component remains moveably engaged with the tibial plateau. The third condyle is adapted to provide posterior stabilization of the prosthesis during flexion between the tibia and the femur when the posterior cruciate ligament is no longer able to substantially perform its function.
That the knee was hit considerably was already clear Thursday morning when departure in stage six wasnt an option. This assessment was confirmed today.
