4. Objective Evaluation of Patients with Ligamentous Instability of the Knee. In this chapter we will cover the objective examination of the patient with anterior knee pain. The objective exam serves as a tool to help strengthen the initial hypotheses that was established in regards to the patient’s complaint. Introduction. Injuries to the posteromedial corner (PMC) of the knee are often overlooked, yet the major anatomic structures found in the PMC are readily visible on modern high-field-strength magnetic resonance (MR) imaging proper understanding of these anatomic structures, their normal appearance at MR imaging, and their static and dynamic roles in supporting the knee, injuries Cited by:
The knee is a hinge joint that is responsible for weight-bearing and movement. It consists of bones, meniscus, ligaments, and tendons. The knee is designed to fulfill a number of functions. Presented from start to finish, John N. Insall, MD demonstrates a flexion instability in total knee arthroplasty. This video is excerpted from Surgical Techniques in Orthopaedics: Ligament Balancing for Total Knee Arthroplasty video program.
Instability in the knee often becomes a problem after an injury. Patients with instability often describe giving way in the knee or feel that they aren’t able to trust their knee. Instability is often related to: Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears; Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Tears; Patella (Knee . other knee. Ligament tests are graded as Negative (firm endpoint), 1+, 2+, 3+ Valgus Stress Test Reference # 4,9 Specific Testing/Maneuvers of the Knee Structure/sign being tested: Integrity of the posterior collateral ligament (PCL) Position of Patient: Lying supine, the hip is passively flexed to 45°, and the knee is passively flexed to 90°File Size: 24KB.

Video Produced at the Academic Medical Centre, University of Amsterdam, Orthopaedic Department: Medicine & Health Science Books. Foreword. Knee complaints are very common presentations to Accident and Emergency, general practice, and orthopaedic clinics.
Some hospitals will also have special knee clinics. Common presenting complaints are pain in the knee, the knee locking, or the knee giving way. Common conditions that cause these symptoms include arthritis, ligament, and/or cartilage injuries. The clinical examination of a knee is addressed to evaluate three aspects: 1) patello-femoral joint/extensor mechanism; 2) articular (meniscal and chondral) lesions; and 3) knee instability.

Anatomy and Biomechanics. The anatomy of the medial side of the knee has been extensively described by LaPrade et al structures of the medial side of the knee include: 1) bony landmarks (medial epicondyle, adductor tubercle, gastrocnemius tubercle on the femur, medial tibial plateau, and the medial aspect of the patella), 2) ligaments (superficial medial collateral ligament, deep medial Cited by: When it comes to knee injuries, orthopedic surgeons depend on the patient’s history and physical exam to find out what’s wrong.
Specific tests of structure and function are performed to look for joint instability. In this review article, tests for assessing tibiofemoral and patellofemoral instability are described and explained in detail.
PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) strain or tear: PCL tears can cause pain, swelling, and knee instability. These injuries are less common than ACL tears, and physical therapy (rather than surgery. What are knee ligaments. There are 4 major ligaments in the knee. Ligaments are elastic bands of tissue that connect bones to each other and provide stability and strength to the joint.
The four main ligaments in the knee connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shin bone), and include the following: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
