Abstract

The lateral collateral ligament is the primary stabilizer against varus stress and is also an important contributor in maintaining posterolateral knee stability. Quadriceps tendon-patellar bone autograft has been used for anterior or posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. We introduce a reconstructive procedure to restore the lateral collateral ligament using a quadriceps tendon-patellar bone autograft. The procedure is designed for unstable knees with concomitant cruciate ligament tear and posterolateral complex injury. This is a reasonable choice especially when allograft tissue is not available or in patients who are not suited for the use of bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft.
