Hypermobility and ACL tears

Christopher M Larson, Asheesh Bedi, Mark E Dietrich, Jennifer C Swaringen, Corey A Wulf, David M Rowley, M Russell Giveans
PURPOSE: To determine whether generalized hypermobility and contralateral knee hyperextension affect failure rates and patient-related outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). METHODS: A total of 226 consecutive patients presenting with acute ACL tears were prospectively evaluated for generalized hypermobility by a modified Beighton criteria. Minimum 2-year follow-up was achieved for 183 knees (81%). Patients underwent ACLR with either bone-patellar-tendon (BPTB) autograft (n = 46), quadrupled hamstring (HT) autograft (n = 85), or allograft tissue (n = 52)...

The objective of this study was to arthroscopically analyse the morphology and dynamics of variants of the anterior horn of the medial meniscus of the knee (VAMM) and to then consider the pathological significance of these variants. VAMM was defined as knees in which the anterior horn of the medial meniscus is not attached to the tibia. Between April 1992 and March 1995, arthroscopy was performed on 953 knees of 903 patients. At the time of this examination, observation and probing were performed to determine the condition of the synovium, the synovial plica, the cartilage in all compartments, the meniscus, the cruciate ligaments, and the popliteal tendon...
