BACKGROUND Little information is known about the forces seen on the main individual structures of the posterolateral knee to applied loads. This information is needed to determine which structures should be reconstructed and also the relative strengths needed for reconstruction grafts. PURPOSE To determine in vitro forces in the fibular collateral ligament, popliteofibular ligament, and popliteus tendon for various posterolateral knee loading conditions. STUDY DESIGN Cadaveric study… CONTINUE READING
