Magnetic resonance imaging study of alteration of tibiofemoral joint articulation after posterior cruciate ligament injury

Chandrasekaran, Sivashankar; Scarvell, Jennie; Buirski, Graham; Woods, Kevin; Smith, Paul

Description

Cadaveric studies have shown that the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is an important constraint to posterior translation of the tibia. Arthroscopic studies have shown that chronic PCL injuries predispose to articular cartilage lesions in the medial compartment and the patellofemoral joint. The aim of the present study was to investigate sagittal plane articulation of the tibiofemoral joint of subjects with an isolated PCL injury.Magnetic resonance was used to generate sagittal images of 10...[Show more]
