Visualization of the popliteus tendon (yellow arrow), the posterolateral corner of the lateral tibial plateau (blue arrow) and the head of the fibula (Fi) in an oblique parasagittal plane, during knee flexion. a (MRI) In the preoperative knee, the popliteus has very intimate relations with the posterolateral corner of the lateral tibial plateau during the all range of motion. b (MRI) Postoperatively, an impingement is visualized between popliteus and prosthetic plateau but the quality is poor (c) (CT-scan fresh-frozen specimen). The popliteus tendon (yellow arrow) is visible as well as the tibial prosthetic plateau (blue arrow)
