The purpose of this study was to provide a quantitative description of the anatomical relationship between the proximal tibia and posterior neurovascular structures to delineate a safe zone for tibial surgery. We measured the distance between the tibial cortex and neurovascular structures, and the width of the medial/lateral part of the tibia without neurovascular structures, using magnetic resonance imaging data of 50 knees. The average distance was <10 mm. Neurovascular structures passed just… CONTINUE READING
