PURPOSE To determine ultrasonography's sensitivity for identifying the anterolateral ligament (ALL). METHODS A descriptive study of 18 cadaveric knees was performed. Ultrasonography was used to locate any anterolateral structures at the knee that could correspond to the ALL. The structure's length and relation with other notable anatomic landmarks(More)
BACKGROUND A corollary of the current population ageing in France is an increase in proximal femoral fractures (PFFs), particularly among centenarians. The outcomes of PFFs in centenarians in France are unknown. We therefore conducted a retrospective study of centenarians with PFFs both to assess: (1) assess clinical outcomes according to geriatric and(More)
PURPOSE To measure the biomechanical properties (maximum load, stiffness, and elongation) of the anterolateral ligament (ALL), gracilis, and iliotibial band (ITB) within the same subject. METHODS Thirteen unpaired knees were used (7 women, 6 men). The donors had a mean age at death of 54 years (range: 37 to 70 years). The mechanical properties of two(More)
BACKGROUND In plain pelvic X-ray, magnification makes measurement unreliable. The EOS™ (EOS Imaging, Paris France) imaging system is reputed to reproduce patient anatomy exactly, with a lower radiation dose. This, however, has not been assessed according to patient weight, although both magnification and irradiation are known to vary with weight. We(More)
To describe the pathological appearance of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) on US and MRI in knees with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear. This prospective study included 30 patients who had a suspected acute ACL tear. Their injured and contralateral knees were evaluated with radiography, US and MRI. Two radiologists evaluated the ALL on the MRI and(More)
PURPOSE (1) To compare the diagnostic ability of ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect anterolateral ligament (ALL) injuries in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-deficient patients, and (2) to evaluate the correlation between ALL injury status (as determined by US and MRI) and the knee's rotational stability. METHODS Thirty(More)
There is a lively debate about the existence, origins and discoverer of the anterolateral ligament of the knee. The complex anatomy of the lateral aspect of the knee has made it difficult to differentiate between various structures such as the iliotibial band, capsulo-osseous layer, Kaplan’s fibres and the anterolateral capsule. The “discovery” of a new(More)
