Abstract

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY:

We present a retrospective multicentric series of carefully selected patients presenting "isolated" laxity of the posterior cruciate ligament.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

The series included 103 patients who were reviewed clinically (with a dedicated review chart) and radiographically with measurement of posterior laxity (Telos 15 kg).

RESULTS:

In these patients with an isolated injury of the PCL (without associated injury of the peripheral ligament)

DISCUSSION:

The short follow-up of this series (four years) does not enable an assessment of the risk or benefit of PCL ligamentoplasty for arthrosic knees.
