PLC (no not a typo)
« on: March 25, 2003, 06:18:56 PM »

Posterolateral complex.  This a group of ligaments found on the outer back portion of the knee.  It is formed by the arcuate, oblique popliteal, and falabella ligaments.  It is often damaged secondary to an untreated/poorly reconstructed ACL or possibly PCL.  It has also been shown to contribute to ACL reconstruction failures.  Surgical reconstruction is often necessary to restore function to the knee.  
1999 LR, 2002 ACL/PLC recon, reversal of LR, 2004 ACL revision, 2006 Car accident torn PCL and small fractures resulting in bone chips in my knee.  Torn MCL 3 times.  Wicked screws under IT band and Pes Anserine.  June 2008-Hip Arthroscopy.

What kind of problems accompany this PLC?  What are the symptoms and mechanical limitations?
