Abstract

Traditionally, while managing ligament injuries around the knee, medial side injuries are frequently overlooked or considered ‘benign’ with very little influence on overall knee stability outcomes. However, much has changed in the recent past, and like the lateral side of the knee, it is gaining considerable attention. It is now well known that the Medial collateral ligament and Posteromedial corner are fundamentally two distinct structures that differ in anatomy and biomechanics. When it comes to decision making between conservative versus operative approach for medial side injuries, treating orthopaedic surgeons are subjected to walking on a thin line trying to balance between potential residual laxity and joint stiffness. This review will delve into some of the recent works focusing on the medial side injuries and discuss the evolving concepts.
