Contents Introduction and incidence of posterolateral knee injuries -- History of the nomenclature and study of the anatomy of the posterolateral knee -- Comprehensive anatomy of the structures of the posterolateral knee -- Mechanism and presenting history of posterolateral knee injuries -- Clinical examination of posterolateral knee injuries -- Clinicaly relevant biomechanics of posterolateral knee injuries -- Treatment of posterolateral knee injuries -- Rehabilitation of posterolateral corner knee injuries and related surgeries -- Complications associated with posterolateral knee injuries
Summary Posterolateral Knee Injuries: Anatomy, Evaluation, and Treatment covers the complex anatomy of the posterolateral knee, the varied examination techniques, surgical and nonsurgical treatments, and therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises available to manage conditions of the posterolateral knee. You will gain the knowledge you need to use multi-pronged approaches to treat posterolateral ligament tears, posterolateral rotatory instability, combined ligament injuries, injuries causing abnormal knee movement, and much more. Underscoring the importance of accurate and timely diagnosis of posterolateral knee injuries, the author reviews the imaging and diagnostic tests to help you ensure that the presence of an injury is not overlooked or misinterpreted. With the text's discussion of clinically relevant biomechanics and the correlation of pertinent exams needed for diagnosis, you will not only develop a firmer understanding of the relationship between instability abnormalities and posterolateral knee injuries, but you will also improve your ability to examine and recognize these injuries. Highlights: A thorough review of anatomical nomenclature clarifies structures which are often confused ; More than 150 illustrations call attention to key issues and clearly delineate anatomical concepts ; Step-by-step descriptions of treatments of acute injury ; Guidance on examination techniques for patients with concurrent ligament injuries in the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, and/or posterior cruciate ligament, in either acute or chronic situations ; Complete review of workup for chronic injury patients requiring either an osteotomy and/or a reconstruction. Posterolateral Knee Injuries is an indispensable reference for all orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, and fellows in these specialties working with patients with acute and chronic knee injuries and related pathology
