Besides the weight evaluation was performed to popliteus
and inguinal ganglia, adrenal glands, kidneys, liver, thyme, spleen and heart.
Contracted structures on the concave side of a valgus knee include the iliotibial band, the anterior lateral ligament, the lateral collateral ligament, the posterolateral corner, and the popliteus
Between the AAIHP and the control groups, there was a statistically significant difference in the number of deep infrapatellar bursae, popliteal bursae, pes anserine bursae, semimembranosus-tibial collateral ligament (SM-TCL) bursae, medial gastrocnemius bursae, fibular collateral ligament (FCL)-popliteus bursae, popliteus
bursae, and iliotibial bursae ( P < 0.05; [Figure 1], [Figure 2], [Figure 3], [Figure 4]).
Vertical axis of the lateral view of the popliteus
test: assess the normality, the hyperflexion and the hyperextension of the knees viewed sideways.
Popliteal artery entrapment classification Type I Popliteal artery has aberrant medial course around MHG Popliteal artery is in normal anatomic position but the Type II MHG inserts more lateral than usual; the artery passes medial and beneath the muscle Type III Accessory slip of MHG slings around the artery Type IV Artery lies deep in the popliteal fossa entrapped by the popliteus
or fibrous band Type V Both popliteal artery and vein are entrapped MHG: medial head of the gastrocnemius
This section of the intervention was completed by manipulating the insertion of popliteus
fascia by means of a kneading technique.
It descends along the back of the thigh and the popliteal fossa to the distal border of the popliteus
muscle (Ndiaye et al., 2003; Standring, 2005).
Posterolateral corner is stabilised by the arcuate ligament complex which consists of lateral collateral ligament; biceps femoris tendon; popliteus
muscle and tendon; popliteal meniscal and popliteal fibular ligaments; arcuate ligament, lateral gastrocnemius muscle and fabellofibular ligaments.
Lastly nearly all entheses of the lower body, with the exception of left popliteus
(p = 0.058), were significantly higher in the Third Intermediate/Napatan sample; collectively, these lower-body entheses are involved in hip extension, flexion, abduction and adduction, and knee flexion and lateral rotation.
On the right, complete tear of PCL and LCL and posterolateral corner including popliteus
and biceps femoris, partial tear of ACL, and a small impression fragment anteromedial corner of the medial tibial plateau were identified.

tendon," in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.
(1) The PLC is comprised of numerous muscular and ligamentous structures, making this a complex anatomical region, (3) however it is most commonly cited that the 3 primary structures which comprise the PLC are the fibular collateral ligament (FCL), popliteus
tendon, and popliteofibular ligament (PFL).
