The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) can be anatomically divided into three bundles: anterolateral, posteromedial, and posterior oblique. The changes in distance between the femoral and tibial attachment sites of these three bundles were measured in 10 human knee specimens with intact ligamental structures. The femoral to tibial distance (and thus the… (More)
On September 19, 1991, at an altitude of 3,200 m (10,498 feet), the remains of a well-preserved, freeze-dried mummified body of a 3,000 BC, Late Stone Age man, was found on the Austrian-Italian border. Studies conducted at the University of Innsbruck have revealed that these are the remains of a 45-46-year-old male, 45 kg (99 lbs) (living weight) and 160 cm… (More)
The morphological foundations of CT-imaging of the cruciate ligaments in 4 different positions of examination are presented comparing roughly identical anatomical sections with CT-scans. Several parts of the cruciate ligaments, such as origin, course and insertion can be viewed in different CT-planes.
