Ten posterior cruciate ligament sparing total knee arthroplasties were studied in 9 patients who underwent arthroscopic posterior cruciate ligament release to improve intractable postoperative knee stiffness and pain. Mean patient age was 64 years. Before posterior cruciate ligament release, the mean knee extension was 4 degrees (0 degrees - 10 degrees); mean knee flexion was 73.9 degrees (40 degrees - 110 degrees). The mean interval to posterior cruciate ligament release after primary total… CONTINUE READING
