AJSM June 2022 Podcast: Surgical Repair of Stener-like Injuries of the Medial Collateral Ligament of the Knee in Professional Athletes
Manage episode 329980440 series 82005
A “Stener-like” lesion of the knee is defined as a distal avulsion of the superficial medial collateral ligament (sMCL) with interposition of the pes anserinus between the ligament and its tibial insertion—a displacement impeding anatomic healing. Because of the scarcity of these injuries, the literature is limited to case reports and small case series.
In conclusion, surgical repair of acute Stener-like lesions of the sMCL is associated with a high return to preinjury level of sporting function, excellent functional performance, and a low risk of recurrence at short–term follow-up in elite athletes.
