Abstract

Radiologists often encounter postoperative knee radiographs lacking any adjunct clinical data which might hinder accurate image interpretation. Surgical techniques are constantly evolving with new devices being used which make it sometimes challenging for the radiologist to deduce the performed procedure and to look for associated complications. This article reviews commonly performed surgical procedures of the knee, highlights their expected postoperative radiographic appearance and describes the appearance of certain postoperative complications.
