Description: Primary vs Secondary Restraints:
- seationing of MCL results in marked valgus instability;
- isolated sectioning of ACL, PCL, LCL, or posterolateral structures does not cause large increases in valgus angulation;
- cutting of MCL + PCL results in more instability than any other combination;
- hence, primary restraint to valgus rotation is MCL, w/ PCL playing a secondary role.
