Correlation between macroscopic changes of arthrosis and the posterior cruciate ligament histology in the osteoarthritic knee
Background: There is ongoing debate about the role of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in total knee arthroplasty. Advocates of PCL retention cite better soft tissue balance and improved proprioception, whereas opponents report late flexion instability. The results of knee replacement are similar whether the PCL is retained or sacrificed. The aim of the present study was to examine the PCL for histological changes that would infer its competence and correlate these with changes easily...[Show more]
