Anchoring to the Crural Fascia for Avulsion of the Medial Collateral Ligament from the Tibia

  • 1Department of Orthopedic Surgery, National Police Hospital, Seoul, Korea


Conservative treatment alone may not give satisfactory results for medial collateral ligament injuries, so surgical treatment may be needed. In this case, the distal end of the medial collateral ligament was treated surgically because the distal end of the medial collateral ligament was caught between the sartorial fascia rupture. Through physical examination and magnetic resonance imaging, avulsion damage at the distal attachment part of the medial collateral ligament was confirmed, and the method of anchoring the distal end of the ligament to the crural fascia helped the ligament to heal with minimal tissue damage. Subsequently, satisfactory results are obtained and reported.
