PURPOSE To simulate the most isometric insertion points of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) in a weight-bearing 3-dimensional computed tomography (CT) model using previously published anatomic landmarks and to define radiographic landmarks, which make for an easier identification of the optimal insertion points. METHODS The most isometric femoral insertion points were analyzed for 10 individuals, using data of weight-bearing CT scans in increasing knee flexion positions. An automatic string… CONTINUE READING
