Abstract

The knee is a frequently injured joint and, thus, a common focus of operative intervention. As operative techniques and imaging modalities evolve, radiologists must be aware of the expected postoperative appearance after knee surgeries that are performed commonly and also must be comfortable recognizing complications encountered commonly in the immediate and delayed postoperative period. Drawing on the large amount of attention this subject has received of late in the radiologic and orthopedic literature, this article reviews the knee surgeries performed most commonly and the expected normal and most frequently encountered abnormal postoperative imaging findings with an emphasis on MR imaging.
