PURPOSE: To prospectively evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for diagnosing ramp lesions, to compare them between 1.5- and 3-T MRI, and to evaluate whether bone contusion of the posterior lip of the medial tibial plateau was associated with ramp lesions. METHODS: For 155 knees that underwent primary ACL reconstruction, we prospectively examined for ramp lesions and medial meniscal body tears on MRI. MRI diagnosis of ramp lesions required high signal irregularity of the capsular margin or separation in the meniscocapsular junction of the medial meniscus posterior horn on sagittal images...

Safety belt, or cerclage, reinforcement of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts may protect against various modes of failure including creep and irreversible stretch, traumatic tearing, and slippage of the tendon-bone interface. A time-zero, biomechanical study shows that suture reinforcement may protect small and vulnerable hamstring ACL reconstruction grafts from these various modes of failure. Thus, in vivo comparative outcome analysis is indicated to determine if the benefits of reinforcement translate from the benchtop to the operating room...

PURPOSE: Studies on dynamic intraligamentary stabilization (DIS) of acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures reported failure rates similar to those of conventional ACL reconstruction. This study aimed to determine whether surgeon experience with DIS is associated with revision rates or patient-reported outcomes. The hypothesis was that more experienced surgeons achieved better outcomes following DIS due to substantial learning curve. METHODS: The authors prospectively enrolled 110 consecutive patients that underwent DIS and evaluated them at a minimum of 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are associated with the development of knee osteoarthritis despite ACL reconstruction surgery. However, little evidence is available to determine which patients will develop symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. PURPOSE: To determine if preoperative outcome measures-KOOS (Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score) and SF-36 (36-item Short Form Health Survey)-were associated with the development of a symptomatic knee 7 years after ACL reconstruction...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Anterior knee laxity can be evaluated using different devices, the most commonly used being the Telos®, KT1000®, Rolimeter®, and GNRB®. However, the laxity values obtained with these devices have never been compared to one another. As such, the outcomes of studies using these different knee laxity measurement devices may not be comparable. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the side-to-side laxity difference in patients with one ACL-injured knee, using each of these devices, and to compare the values obtained from each...

OBJECTIVE: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury initiates a cascade of events often leading to osteoarthritis. ACL reconstruction does not alter the course of osteoarthritis, suggesting that heightened osteoarthritis risk is likely due to factors in addition to the joint instability. We showed that torn ACL remnants express periostin (POSTN) in the acute phase of injury. Considering that ACL injury predisposes to osteoarthritis and that POSTN is associated with cartilage metabolism, we hypothesize that ACL injury affects chondrocytes via POSTN...

Background: Anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL) are associated with meniscal lesions, that could involve the posterior horn of the medial meniscus (PHMM). A variety of techniques has been proposed to better visualise the postero-medial (PM) compartment. The aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of longitudinal tears of peripheral attachment of the PHMM during arthroscopic ACL reconstruction, and to describe a diagnostic algorithm. Methods: 115 patients who underwent arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were enrolled for the study...

INTRODUCTION: Conservative treatment of partial ACL ruptures is associated with a high failure rate, and often patients undergo ACL reconstruction. ACL preservation by trephination of the ACL origin and application of Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) seems to be an intriguing new treatment option to favour ACL tissue healing and avoid traditional reconstruction. The aim of this study was to describe the mid-term outcomes of this new ACL preserving technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-four patients (mean age 41...

Background: Chinese ethnicity is associated with the presence of knee osteoarthritis. This raises the possibility that it may similarly be associated with concomitant meniscus and cartilage injuries in patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. There are currently no published data on the effect of Chinese ethnicity in this regard. Purpose: The primary aim was to determine whether Chinese ethnicity is associated with concomitant intra-articular injuries in patients with ACL tears and to verify the correlation of age, sex, body mass index, mechanism of injury, cause of injury, and presence of bone contusions on magnetic resonance imaging with such injuries...

PURPOSE: To assess the midterm clinical outcomes in patients with proximal avulsion anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears undergoing arthroscopic primary repair with suture anchors. METHODS: The first 11 consecutive patients with proximal avulsion tears treated with arthroscopic primary repair were evaluated at midterm (minimum 5-year) follow-up. Physical examination was performed; laxity examination consisting of the Lachman, pivot-shift, and anterior drawer tests was performed; and patients were asked to complete the Lysholm, modified Cincinnati, Single Assessment Numeric Evaluation, and International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) questionnaires...

This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between preoperative lateral meniscal extrusion (LME) and arthroscopic findings of lateral meniscus posterior root tear (LMPRT) in knees with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear. Thirty-five knees that had LMPRTs with concomitant ACL tears on arthroscopy were evaluated. Patients were divided into two groups, partial and complete root tears, via arthroscopic findings at the time of ACL reconstruction. For comparison, we added two groups, using the same database; 20 normal knees (normal group) and 20 ACL-injured knees without LM injury (intact LM group)...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear can leads to osteoarthritis (OA). However, parathyroid hormone (PTH) (1-34) was found to alleviate OA progression in a papain-induced OA model. Autophagy is a protective mechanism in normal cartilage, and its aging-related loss is linked with chondrocyte death and OA. Thus, we examined the roles of autophagy in PTH treatment on OA after ACL transection (ACLT). Thirty-six rats were randomized into three groups: control group, ACLT-induced OA (ACLT-OA) group, and OA with intra-articular PTH (1-34) treatment group...

Historically, poor results of open primary repair of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries have been reported. In hindsight, however, appropriate patient selection (i.e. proximal tears and good tissue quality) was not performed, because it has recently been recognized that good outcomes of primary ACL repair are possible when selectively performed in patients with proximal tears and good tissue quality. Moreover, with modern-day advances, arthroscopic primary repair can be an excellent treatment option for patients with proximal tears...

In most anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, the tear is at the femoral side leaving a robust stump attached to the tibia. Stump-preserving ACL reconstruction carries the advantage of rapid reinnervation and revascularization of the graft. In this technique, the femoral tunnel is created after exposing the femoral footprint. The ACL tibial stump is split and the tip of the ACL tibial guide is introduced through this split to reach the center of the tibial footprint. The tibial tunnel is then created and the ACL stump is bored to allow the passage of the graft...

An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is one of the most common orthopaedic injuries. Optimal results are not always achieved after surgical reconstruction after a surgical technical error, namely, tunnel malposition. Understanding of the anatomy is vital, and several anatomic landmarks can be used to aid in an optimal reconstruction technique. The purpose of this Technical Note is to describe our preferred technique for an arthroscopic single-bundle anteromedial ACL reconstruction, using a bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft fixed with interference screws...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears have persistent quadriceps strength deficits that are thought to be due to altered neurophysiological function. Our goal was to determine the changes in muscle fiber contractility independent of the ability of motor neurons to activate fibers. METHODS: We obtained quadriceps biopsies of patients undergoing ACL reconstruction, and additional biopsies one, two, and six months after surgery. Muscles fiber contractility was assessed in vitro, along with whole muscle strength testing...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament tears are an unfortunate, but common, event in the United States, with an estimated 100-300,000 reconstructions performed annually. Limited literature has been published analyzing the reimbursement patterns for the reconstruction of this ligament and, thus, cost-effectiveness studies have relied mainly on data from a limited number of subjects and hospitals. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to perform an epidemiological cost analysis of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions and to analyze and describe the reimbursement patterns for this procedure that can be used as reference for future cost-analysis studies...
