Abstract

The management of chronic posterior cruciate ligament and posterolateral instability is challenging from anatomic, diagnostic, and therapeutic points of view. This article describes an anatomic approach to the surgical reconstruction of the posterolateral aspect of the knee. It reviews the surgical options and techniques for repair and reconstruction of the two most critical posterolateral structures, the popliteus and lateral collateral ligament.
