After deep retractor placement under the conjoined tendon, the tuberosities can be tagged at the respective myotendinous junction, and any residual supraspinatus is resected to the spine of the scapula and off of the greater tuberosity (Fig.
27) The most important of these structures, from anterior to posterior, are the iliotibial band (ITB), a continuation of the tensor fascia lata inserting on Gerdy's tubercle on the anterolateral tibia (Figure 16), the fibular or true lateral collateral ligament (Figure 17), and the tendon of the biceps femoris muscle that converges with the fibular collateral ligament to form the conjoined tendon prior to inserting on the fibular head (Figures 18 and 19).
Brandser et al (1995) were a little more specific indicating that most injuries (20/22) involved the proximal attachments of the hamstring muscles at the conjoined tendon or ischial apophysis.
