PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the reliability of the dial test by assessing the correlation between the severity of posterolateral corner injuries and the amount of external rotation of the tibia. METHODS Fourteen paired cadaveric legs were fixed into a custom-made isotonic rotation machine with the knee flexed at 30 degrees . For group I (7 right knees), the lateral collateral ligament, popliteofibular ligament, popliteus tendon, and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) were… CONTINUE READING
