Genu recurvatum is also known as knee hyperextension or back knee. It is a type of condition that affects the knee joint to bend backward when the person is in standing position. This problem is more common in women than in men and commonly identified in 0.5%-1.0% of patients undergoing Total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
This condition leads to stress in the posterior knee structures and anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) which cause permanent damage of the joint. Genu recurvatum can also cause other conditions such as knee pain or knee osteoarthritis. Genu recurvatum can be mild, moderate, or severe. This deformity can also arise from other medical conditions such as, quadriceps weakness, bone deformities, paralysis, plantar foot flexion, and high tibial ostotomies.
Genu recurvatum can be congenital or acquired. Congenital genu recurvatum (CGR) is extremely rare condition, and found to be associated with other malformations such as talipes equinovarus, hip dysplasia, and absent patella.
