Cruciate ligaments (also cruciform ligaments) are pairs of ligaments arranged like a letter X. They occur in several joints of the body, such as the knee joint and the atlanto-axial a fashion similar to the cords in a toy Jacob's ladder, the crossed ligaments stabilize the joint . The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) of the knee has been the subject of many debates. The role of the PCL has become a topic of interest across the subspecialties of trauma, sports medicine,  and knee , if any, treatment is required for a PCL-deficient knee is still a widely debated topic.
Pain behind the knee is sometimes referred to as posterior knee pain. Your knee joint is made up of ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscles, and bones. According to Dr. Matthew Hoffman on WebMD, the knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. The knee is a modified hinge joint, a type of synovial joint, which is composed of three functional compartments: the patellofemoral articulation, consisting of the patella, or "kneecap", and the patellar groove on the front of the femur through which it slides; and the medial and lateral tibiofemoral articulations linking the femur, or thigh bone, with the tibia, the main bone of the lower leg.

We're just going to look at the boney bits and ligaments of the knee joint. And menisci. And mention articular cartilage. And movements. And injuries. But that's probably it. .

The Ligaments of the Knee Joint - Pathophysiology. 16 mm LT: Medicine & Health Science Books @ Although the joint surfaces and capsular ligament systems function optimally together during terminal rotation, the dissected specimen shows that this phase can be maintained with light axial compression without any ligament support, even after division of the cruciate by: 1.
The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) is one of the four major ligaments of the knee joint that functions to stabilize the tibia on the femur. It originates from the anterolateral aspect of the medial femoral condyle in the area of the intercondylar notch and inserts onto the posterior aspect of the tibial : Marc A.

Injury to a ligament results in a drastic change in its structure and physiology and may resolve by the formation of scar tissue, which is biologically and biomechanically inferior to the ligament. What is the pathophysiology of total knee replacement surgery?.
Here I will give you a brief idea, that makes you understand the process clearly. So keep reading this article. It will be highly informative. People after a certain age suffering from severe arthritis, or osteoarthritis, gout or knee joint.
There are four knee ligaments (thick bands of tough tissue) that serve to maintain the stability of the knee joint.
Knee ligament impose limitations on the movement of the knee allowing it to concentrate forces of the muscles on extension and flexion. Anatomy. On the sides of the knee are the medial collateral ligament (MCL) and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL).
These two prevent sideways. Ligaments in the Knee. The four main ligaments in the knee connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shin bone), and include the following: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) - The ligament, located in the center of the knee, that controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia (shin bone).
Ligaments join the knee bones and provide stability to the knee: The anterior cruciate ligament prevents the femur from sliding backward on the tibia (or the tibia sliding forward on the femur). The patellofemoral joint is a cellar/saddle, complex, uniaxial synovial joint which slides superiorly (up) when the knee extends and inferiorly (down) when the knee flexes.
There is also a slight amount of medial and lateral deviation, as well as tilting which takes place during normal movement. These ligaments play an essential part in controlling the movements of lateral meniscus during the extension of the knee joint.
The lateral meniscus is connected to the medial part of the tendon of popliteus and therefore the freedom of its posterior horn is restrained by the popliteus and 2 meniscofemoral ligaments. The knee joint is a synovial joint that connects three bones; the femur, tibia and is a complex hinge joint composed of two articulations; the tibiofemoral joint and patellofemoral tibiofemoral joint is an articulation between the tibia and the femur, while the patellofemoral joint is an articulation between the patella and the al significance: Fractures, O'Donaghue's triad, bursitis, osteoarthritis.
posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which is located in the center of the knee and prevents excessive backward shifting of the knee. Two groups of muscles support the knee.
They are: Hamstrings – muscles on the back of the thigh, which run from the hip to just below the knee and work to bend the knee. knee anatomy, mechanisms and classiﬁcations of in-jury, evaluation, treatment, postoperative rehabilita-tion, and our experience with treating the dislocated knee.
ANATOMY The stability of the knee is attributable to several anatomic structures. The articulation of the femo-rotibial joint is maintained in part by the bony anat.
Basic concepts of total joint arthroplasty. Hip and Knee Replacement pre-op planning, post-op protocols, and discussion of implants and complications. The knee ligaments are one of the vital components of knee stability and control. Ligaments are thick fibrous bands, like ropes, and their job is to provide stability and control movement.
The knee ligaments connect the thigh and shin bones (femur & tibia) and work together to control how the knee moves to keep it stable and prevent injury. In the elderly there is an increase in joint capsule and ligaments laxity, which may be one of the reasons for the increase in incidents of osteoarthritis (Rudolph et al.
Pathology. Pathological changes in ligaments may occur due to structural and functional failure. Any strain to a ligament may cause a long-term joint instability. Introduction.
Dynamic knee stability is affected by both passive (ligamentous) and active (neuromuscular) joint restraints.
Among the contributors to knee joint stability, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has long been considered the primary passive restraint to anterior translation of the tibia with respect to the femur.
1,2 Moreover, the ACL contributes to knee rotational stability in. anterior cruciate ligament posterior cruciate ligament tear of cruciate ligaments ligamentum cruciatum anterior ligamentum cruciatum posterior robeknya ligamen cruciatum Cruciate ligaments. What are knee ligaments.
There are 4 major ligaments in the knee. Ligaments are elastic bands of tissue that connect bones to each other and provide stability and strength to the joint.
The four main ligaments in the knee connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shin bone), and include the following: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Joint pain is a symptom of an underlying condition or disease.
Any individual may suffer from joint pain be it men, women, or children. Joint pain also called as arthralgia is caused due to injury to the ligaments, bursa, or tendons that surround the joint or any injury to the ligaments, cartilage, or bones within the joint and in case of inflammation of the joint such as arthritis.Normal Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Knee Fred Flandry, MD, FACS*w and Gabriel Hommel, MD* Abstract: Functionally, the knee comprises 2 articulations—the patellofemoral and tibiofemoral.
Stability of the joint is governed by a combination of static ligaments, dynamic muscular forces, meniscocapsular aponeurosis, bony topography, and joint load. Ligamentous Laxity or ligament laxity is nothing, but loose ligaments which lead to chronic body pains. Ligamentous Laxity is also known as loose joints, double-jointedness, hypermobility syndrome, and joint laxity.
