Over the past twenty years, there were a variety of interesting advancements within the surgical box of articular cartilage fix. Magnetic resonance imaging performs a serious position in pre-operative surgical making plans, via its skill to spot the level and severity of cartilage lesions. It additionally performs a massive position in post-operative administration, via permitting surgeons to noninvasively video display the morphological prestige of repaired cartilage tissue. This e-book covers contemporary advances in extremely excessive box MRI and biochemical MRI thoughts equivalent to T2 mapping, not on time gadolinium more suitable MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC), gagCEST and sodium MRI. it's written by means of a multidisciplinary staff together with simple scientists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons and biomedical engineers. the amount is a perfect reference consultant for musculoskeletal radiologists, easy examine scientists, orthopedic surgeons and biomedical engineers and so on. Readership: uncomplicated scientists from cartilage biology, imaging and tissue engineering musculoskeletal radiologists orthopaedic surgeons biomedical engineers rheumatologists.

Beyond 90◦ of flexion, most of the force is transmitted to the posterior horns of the menisci. Of the two menisci, the lateral meniscus has been shown to provide more biomechanical support to the joint than does the medial meniscus. In order to understand the treatment of meniscal tears, one must understand the vascularity of the menisci, as the two go hand-in-hand. Arnoczky and Warren studied the adult blood supply to the meniscus and found that only the outer 10–25% of the lateral meniscus and 10–30% February 21, 2014 14:7 9in x 6in 26 Advanced Quantitative Imaging of Knee Joint Repair b1722-ch01 W.

Plain radiographs should first be obtained to rule out any bony pathology or any pre-existing joint space narrowing secondary to degenerative arthritis. A standard series should include a 45◦ posteroanterior (PA) weight bearing view of both knees, a true lateral, and a Merchant or sky-line view. Once radiographs are obtained, more advanced imaging can be performed. With an MRI, the physician has the ability to assess the knee in multiple planes. This test does not involve exposing the patient to any ionizing radiation, and it has the capacity to evaluate other structures within the joint.

Tunnels are drilled at the sites of the anatomic attachments on the femur and proximal fibula. Tensioning is done with the knee in 30◦ of flexion and neutral rotation while a valgus force is applied to decrease any varus opening (Figure 12). Outcome Potential complications with PLC surgery include wound breakdown and infection. This is particularly worrisome in open knee dislocations and acute injury. Peroneal nerve injuries can be avoided with meticulous surgical technique. Posterolateral knee injuries involves between 15% and 29% incidence of peroneal nerve injury.
