BACKGROUND Recent anatomic investigations of the lateral structures of the knee have identified a new ligament, called the anterolateral ligament (ALL). To date, the anterolateral ligament has not been biomechanically tested to determine its function. HYPOTHESIS The ALL of the knee will resist internal rotation at high angles of flexion but will not resist anterior drawer forces. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Eleven cadaveric knees were subjected to 134 N of anterior… CONTINUE READING
