Abstract

Studies continue to demonstrate the importance of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) as a secondary restraint in rotational stability of the knee. No clinical exam exists to reliably test the ALL. Advanced imaging allows the surgeon to reliably identify the ALL as an independent structure of the lateral knee. This technique paper provides a reproducible method for identification of the ALL on 3T magnetic resonance imaging based on previously conducted cadaveric dissections of the ligament.
