Identification of morphological risk factors associated with the knee that threaten ligaments is important for understanding injury mechanisms and prevention.
However, the morphological risk factors for posterior cruciate
ligament (PCL) lesions are not clearly understood.
We investigate whether the medial tibial depth (MTD), medial and lateral posterior tibial slope, asymmetry of the medial and lateral slopes, radius of the sagittal plane medial femoral condyle, coronal tibial slope, and notch width index (NWI) were risk factors for PCL intrasubstance tearing (PCLIT) and tibial avulsion fractures (PCLAF).
Cross-sectional study; Level of evidence, 3.
Between January 2015 and March 2022, 82 patients with isolated PCLIT, 68 patients with isolated PCLAF, and 82 controls without any ligamentous or meniscal pathologic findings as determined via physical examination and magnetic resonance imaging were included.
