Abstract

RANADE, Anu Vinod et al. Morphometric Study on the Tibial Collateral Ligament . Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.4, pp.677-678. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022006000500026.

Tibial collateral ligament by virtue of its length, composite attachments, and biomechanical exertions is more prone to lesions. A systematic analysis of the dimensions and variations of this ligament has been presented in this article. With the decrease emphasis on anatomy as a preclinical subject and recent successful moves to curtail total teaching hours for dissection, coupled with the increasing shortage of cadavers, data of this nature will in our opinion becomes scarce progressively. With these factors in context, and attempt is made to record the gross morphological features of the ligament from a series of dissections

Keywords : Tibial collateral ligament; Anatomy.
