PCL Injuries

PCL Injuries When intact the Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) plays a large role in knee stability as it acts primarily to restrict posterior translation of the tibia at all angles greater than 30 degrees.  After 90 degrees it provides 95% resistance to posterior tibial translation.  As the knee moves from flexion to extension, the tensile...

Patella Fractures

Patella Fractures   The Patella is the largest Sesamoid bone in the body.  The quadricep attaches to the superior portion of the patella, and at the inferior pole the patella tendon attached to the tibia at the tibial tuberosity.  Some would suggest that the patella is embedded into the quadricep tendon.  The patella transmits tensile...
