Abstract

Reconstruction of the posterolateral corner of the knee using two-tailed techniques involved grafts originating from the femur and inserting on the proximal tibia and fibular head. This method reconstructs the fibular collateral ligament, popliteofibular ligament, and popliteus tendon using anatomically placed grafts. This article describes the history, anatomy, indications, and authors' preferred technique for a two-tailed posterolateral corner reconstruction. In addition, biomechanical and clinical outcomes of this technique will be compared.
