Abstract

Several surgical techniques have been suggested to anatomically reconstruct the posterolateral corner of the knee joint. However, most of them are open techniques that require dissection of the skin and soft tissues without utilizing the advantages of arthroscopic-assisted techniques. Therefore, this study aimed to describe a novel arthroscopic technique that anatomically reconstructs the posterolateral corner of the knee joint. This novel arthroscopic technique can properly identify important landmarks for reconstruction and anatomically reconstruct the three key components (lateral collateral ligament, popliteus tendon, and popliteofibular ligament) of the posterolateral corner of the knee joint.
