Abstract

A technically simple operation for the restoration of anteromedial rotational knee stability is described. It involves suturing under tension the posteromedial capsule of the knee joint to the semimembranosus tendon at its insertion into the tibia, with the leg held in full internal rotation and with the knee flexed to 60 °. This, in combination with the conservative treatment of meniscal injuries and with tightening of the soft tissue structures over the medial aspect of the knee, restored full or almost full anteromedial stability in the knee in 15 out of 16 young men, observed for an average of 19 months after the operation.
