Posterior translation and bundle tension were measured as the knee was flexed from full extension to 1,200 of flexion while a posterior force of either 50 or 100 N was applied to the proximal tibia.
Posterior motion limits were measured under a 100 N posterior force in the intact, posterior cruciate ligament-deficient, and posterior cruciate ligament-reconstructed knees.
The increase in posterior translation of the lateral tibial plateau over the intact state averaged 17.8 and 23.5 mm at 30 degrees and 90 degrees of flexion, respectively; for the medial tibial plateau this increase averaged 7.6 and 12.3 mm at 30 degrees and 90 degrees of flexion, respectively.

 Posterior probability - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Bayesian probability theory, the posterior probability of an uncertain proposition is its conditional probability given empirical data into account.
The posterior probability can be calculated by Bayes' theorem from the prior probability and the likelihood function.
Similarly a posterior probability distribution is the conditional probability distribution of the uncertain quantity given the data.

 Posterior pituitary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The posterior pituitary (also called the neurohypophysis) comprises the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland and is part of the endocrine system.
Despite its name, the posterior pituitary gland is not a gland, per se; rather, it is largely a collection of axonal projections from the hypothalamus that terminate behind the anterior pituitary gland.

The posterior cruciate ligament is one of the main ligaments of the knee.

 The Physician and Sportsmedicine: Posterior Knee Pain and Its Causes
The condition is caused by a posterior herniation of the synovial membrane or by a communicating semimembranous bursa into the popliteal space and usually indicates underlying pathology.
Posterior knee pain can arise from acute tendon strain or chronic injury resulting in tendinitis of any of the musculotendinous structures in or about the popliteal fossa.
During the initial 30° of knee flexion, these posterolateral structures in combination with the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) are important in resisting excessive varus orientation, external rotation, and posterior translation of the knee.

This is due to the fact that the lattices used as the basis for the posterior estimation only represent part of the posterior distribution and a significant amount of the probability mass is ``missing''.

 Posterior fossa tumor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The posterior fossa itself is a small, confined space and any growth there can block the flow of spinal fluid and cause increased pressure on the brain and spinal cord.
Symptoms from posterior fossa tumors also occur when the tumor damages local structures, such as cranial nerves.
Posterior craniotomy (open brain surgery) or stereotactic biopsy (using special instruments to get a small piece of the tumor) can be used to obtain tissue for diagnosis.

 ► Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury
A posterior cruciate ligament injury is described as a partial or complete tear, or stretching of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) anywhere along the length of the ligament.
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is a powerful ligament extending from the top-rear surface of the tibia to the bottom-front surface of the femur.
The PCL is usually injured by hyperextension (overextending the knee), or a direct blow to the flexed knee (such as from "dashboard knee" in a car accident).

 Ear, Nose & Throat Journal: A new method of studying the anatomy of the posterior tympanum
The direct access to the posterior tympanum described here enabled the author to make video and photographic records of the structures as they are in the normal anatomic state, including those in the deepest recesses of the posterior tympanum.
Although bone of the posterior canal wall can be removed up to the limits of the facial nerve to better visualize the middle ear structures, many surgeons are reluctant to remove a significant amount of posterior canal wall bone because they fear that they might damage the facial nerve.
The author's goal was not to invent a new anterior surgical approach to the posterior tympanum, but to augment Goodhill's method of anteroposterior intraoperative exposure of the posterior tympanum by developing a technique that can be used in the research laboratory to produce an expanded view of this middle ear structure.

 Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery: rational for posterior cruciate substituting total knee arthroplasty, The
The original prosthesis was a cemented cruciate sacrificing, tricompartmental prosthesis, with a relatively conforming tibio-femoral articulation.15 The TCP relies on soft tissue balance in flexion and extension, along with moderate articular conformity in the coronal and sagittal planes for stability, because the PCL is excised but not substituted.
To prevent posterior subluxation of the tibia and to improve both range of motion and stair climbing ability, the TCP was modified to the Insall Burstein Posterior Stabilized Prosthesis (IB I) in 1978.
With the use of a cemented metalbacked tibial component, the posterior stabilized prosthesis has demonstrated a 14 year survivorship of 98.1%.12 In the cruciate-retaining knee the intact posterior cruciate ligament may be able to resist shear stresses that occur at the prosthesis interface.

Posterior fossa tumor is an abnormal growth located in or near the posterior fossa (a depression on the interior, back portion of the base of the skull, near the cerebellum part of the brain).

If physical examination (PE) alone were sufficient to diagnose posterior pelvic ring injuries, then patients with negative PE findings of the posterior pelvis would not require more extensive evaluation with CT scan.
The purpose was to determine if PE of the posterior pelvis in awake patients with known pelvic ring injuries could predict a posterior injury.
A focused PE was performed, including posterior palpation, AP and lateral iliac compression, active hip range-of-motion, and digital rectal examination.

 Posterior cervical laminectomy
If a posterior laminectomy is done without a cervical fusion surgery, there is a post-operative risk of developing instability that may lead to pain and deformity.
The advantage of this technique is that it increases the size of the canal but leaves the posterior tether that helps keep the spine stable.
The disadvantage is that the canal is not well visualized and it is difficult to assess whether or not the canal has been well decompressed.
