Posteromedial meniscocapsular injury associated with rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament: a previously unrecognised association.

While injury to the posterolateral corner is accepted as a relatively common occurrence associated with rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament, posteromedial meniscocapsular injury has not previously been recognised as such. In a prospective assessment of 183 consecutive reconstructions of the anterior cruciate ligament this injury was observed in 17 cases, giving it an incidence of 9.3%. Clinically, it was associated with a mild anteromedial rotatory subluxation and it is important not to confuse this with posterolateral rotatory subluxation. In no case was this injury identified by MRI. The possible long-term clinical relevance is discussed.
