Abstract

Posterolateral corner (PLC) reconstruction has been shown to be an effective treatment for PLC injuries. Acute anatomical repair of the PLC has the same potential to stabilize the knee; however, outcomes are less defined. Surgical repair minimizes graft harvest morbidity and allows for the maintenance of native tissue proprioception. Furthermore, augmentation with a flat-braided suture (SutureTape; Arthrex) portends additional repair strength and protection. The purpose of this Technical Note and video is to provide our preferred method of PLC repair in a patient with an acute knee dislocation and injury to the biceps femoris, lateral collateral ligament, iliotibial band, popliteofibular ligament, and the meniscocapsular attachment of the lateral meniscus.
