- Saphenous vein injury
- Saphenous nerve injury
With the following tips you might perform the Tibia Plateau – Medial Approach even better:
- Facilitating exposure of the pes anserinus by sartorius muscle retraction
- Facilitating joint capsule exposure by pes anserinus retraction
- Dissection of the gastrocnemius muscle
After studying the Tibia Plateau – Medial Approach course you are familiar with the most common complications:
- Injury to the saphenous neurovascular bundle
- Joint instability
Step by step
