Abstract

Non-surgical management of posterolateral corner (PLC) knee injuries is reserved for specific isolated mild to moderate injuries. There has been a relative scarcity of studies discussing non-surgical management existing secondary to the relative rarity of isolated PCL injuries. In these specific cases, a few studies have shown non-surgical management to result in satisfactory outcomes. This review of the literature outlines the outcomes and treatment options for posterolateral corner (PLC) knee injuries, which is based on the grade of the injury. However, no matter what the grade of injury, it is crucial to rule out other associated deficiencies before undertaking a nonoperative approach in the management of the posterolateral corner of the knee.
