It ranges from the medial surface of the lateral femoral condyle, which is a part of the lower end of the thigh bone, to the front of the anterior tibial
spine, which is a part of the upper end of the shin bone.
Venous structures are within normal limits yet revealed a monophasic flow in the right anterior tibial
artery in affected extremity and diameter of common femoral artery was detected 6.3 milimeter by dUSG.
There has been extensive discussion regarding the relationship between ACL injury and the tibial slope which remained controversial.,, Alentorn-Geli et al . suggested that an increased posterior tibial slope may be associated with ACL injury in male patients, but the association between ACL injury and the angle formed by the Blumensaat line and the anterior tibial
slope in male patients requires more investigation.
The amount of anterior tibial
translocation is measured by calculating the distance between the posterior edges of lateral femoral condyle and the posterior edges of the tibia by drawing tangential vertical lines.
For the anterior tibial
muscle, the placement of electrodes followed the point of greater muscle volume, longitudinally to its fiber .
Occluded anterior tibial
artery was passed using the vertebral catheter and a 0.018-inch guide-wire and true lumen at dorsalis pedis artery was reached.
They utilized its segmental blood supply from the anterior tibial
and fibular arteries, and its single motor nerve that enters the muscle at its proximal end.
Post revascularisation complications included major infection (n = 1) with graft infection resulting in pseudoaneurysm of the distal anastomosis of the anterior tibial
artery, despite a successful bypass and a below knee amputation was needed in one patient.
* Indicates angioplasty post TMA, ** Angioplasty of existing fem-pop graft) (2 PT= Posterior tibial artery; AT= Anterior tibial
artery; P= Peroneal artery; CFA= Common femoral artery; SFA = Superficial femoral artery; POP=Popliteal artery)
In the predicted position of injury, flexion, valgus, internal tibial rotation, and anterior tibial
translation were measured.
The anterior tibial
plateau fragment was anatomically reduced using two fully threaded noncannulated screws (Arthrex, Naples, FL), while the tibial tubercle fragment was reduced via bicortical fixation with a 50 mm fully threaded 3.5 mm cortical screw (Arthrex, Naples, FL).
Pairs of EMG electrodes were positioned over the proximal ([TA.sub.prox]) and distal ([TA.sub.dist]) ends of the anterior tibial
muscle (mean distance between electrode pairs ~ 12 cm) and over the center of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) and soleus (SOL) muscles.
