PURPOSE: Failure of dynamic intraligamentary stabilization (DIS) that requires revision surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has not been studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of revision ACL surgery, and the patient characteristics and surgery-related factors that are associated with an increased risk of ACL revision after DIS. METHODS: This study analysed a prospective, consecutively documented single-centre case series using standardized case report forms over a 2...

OBJECTIVE: Prospectively monitor how treatment of acutely ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) affects biomarkers of inflammation and proteolytic degradation over five years. DESIGN: We studied 119 subjects with acute ACL injury from the randomized controlled KANON-trial (Clinical trial ISRCTN 84752559) who had synovial fluid, serum and urine samples available from at least two out of six visits over five years after acute ACL rupture. All subjects followed a similar rehabilitation protocol where, according to randomization, 60 also had early ACL reconstruction and 59 had the option to undergo a delayed ACL reconstruction if needed...

BACKGROUND: Anterior tibial spine fractures (ATSF) in the skeletally immature parallel anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in adult patients, yet these injuries are generally regarded as mutually exclusive. Biomechanical analysis suggests that intrinsic ACL damage occurs during ATSF, and long-term clinical studies demonstrate residual anteroposterior knee laxity following ATSF. We aim to describe prevalence, demographics, and characteristics of pediatric patients who sustained ATSF with concomitant ACL injury...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a well-known risk factor for the development of posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). However, whether using continuous passive motion (CPM) with or without additional treadmill exercise (TRE) in early ACL injury might provide chondroprotective effects and further decrease the risk of PTOA has yet to be determined. HYPOTHESIS: CPM may offer an enhanced chondroprotective effect, but TRE may attenuate that effect due to the mechanical stress on the joint and inflammatory cytokines in the joint...

AIM: Identify injury-related, patient-reported and treatment-related prognostic factors for 5-year outcomes in acutely ACL-ruptured individuals managed with early reconstruction plus exercise therapy, exercise therapy plus delayed reconstruction or exercise therapy alone. METHODS: Exploratory analysis of the Knee Anterior Cruciate Ligament, Nonsurgical versus Surgical Treatment (KANON) trial (ISRCTN84752559). Relationships between prognostic factors (baseline cartilage, meniscus and osteochondral damage, baseline extension deficit, baseline patient-reported outcomes, number of rehabilitation visits, graft/contralateral ACL rupture, non-ACL surgery and ACL treatment strategy) and 5-year Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) pain, symptoms, sport/recreation and quality of life (QOL) scores were explored using multivariable linear regression...

INTRODUCTION: The clinical anatomy of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve (IPBSN) is of particular importance during operations in the area of the knee, especially when material for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is harvested. The nerve can easily be injured during the harvesting procedure, leading to postoperative complications that reduce quality of life. Three different skin incisions are commonly used during hamstring tendon harvesting: horizontal, vertical, and oblique...

A 22-year-old male presented with medial sided instability of the right knee three days after shooting a blocked ball. Physical examination, which is usually feasible in the acute phase, showed grade 3 laxity of the superficial medial collateral ligament. MRI confirmed a distal rupture, which needs repair within 2 weeks after onset.

INTRODUCTION: The cruciate ligaments are essential for the antero-posterior stability of the knee joint. In Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) rupture, though reconstructive surgery is a widely accepted and proven procedure, there is still an unacceptably high re-injury rate. The fact that the rotational instability persists even after the surgical reconstruction of ACL injury has evoked a new interest in the study of the soft tissue structures on the anterolateral aspect of the knee joint...

Despite the popularity of the sport, few studies have investigated community-level football injury patterns. This study examines football injuries treated at emergency medical facilities using data from three Swedish counties. An open-cohort design was used based on residents aged 0-59 years in three Swedish counties (pop. 645 520). Data were collected from emergency medical facilities in the study counties between 1 January 2007 and 31 December 2010. Injury frequencies and proportions for age groups stratified by sex were calculated with 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) and displayed per diagnostic group and body location...

INTRODUCTION: Comminuted fracture of patella is most commonly treated by tension band wiring with cerclage wiring. Broken cerclage wiring after such surgery is not uncommon but intra-articular migration of broken cerclage wire is rarely known and described complication. CASE REPORT: A 51-year-old male patient of Indian origin which was treated, 15 months back for fracture patella with tension band wiring with cerclage wiring, presented with painful restriction of knee movements for the last 4 weeks...

REVIEW
Alfonso Vaquero-Picado, E Carlos Rodríguez-Merchán
Isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears are much less frequent than anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears.Abrupt posterior tibial translation (such as dashboard impact), falls in hyperflexion and direct hyperextension trauma are the most frequent mechanisms of production.The anterolateral bundle represents two-thirds of PCL mass and is reconstructed in single-bundle techniques.The PCL has an intrinsic capability for healing. This is the reason why, nowadays, the majority of isolated PCL tears are managed non-operatively, with rehabilitation and bracing...

BACKGROUND: Revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) poses unique challenges compared with primary TKA such as bone loss, deformity, and ligament instability. Modular component options allow flexibility to deal with these complexities. The purpose of this study was to evaluate midterm outcomes for revision TKA using a modular revision knee system with complete interchangeability and multiple options for augmentation, offset, constraint, and stem extensions. METHODS: A query of our practice registry revealed 257 consented patients (274 knees and 278 TKA) with minimum 2-year follow-up who underwent aseptic revision TKA with a modular system (Vanguard Super Stabilized Knee; Zimmer Biomet, Warsaw, IN) between 2005 and 2013...

PURPOSE: In total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the posterior tibial slope is not always reconstructed correctly, and the knee ligaments may become too tight in flexion. To release a tight flexion gap, surgeons can increase the posterior tibial slope using two surgical resection techniques: the anterior tibial cortex (ACR) or the centre of tibial plateau (CPR) referencing. It is not known how this choice affects the knee laxity and function during activities of daily living. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of tibial slope on knee laxity, kinematics and forces during a squatting activity using computer simulation techniques...

PURPOSE: To critically analyze the "lever test" in detecting anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and to compare its accuracy with the Lachman, anterior drawer (AD), and pivot shift tests. METHODS: From June 2014 to June 2015, 91 subjects were analyzed. Inclusion criteria were subjects aged 16 to 60 years, presenting after a knee injury with subjective swelling, or an objective effusion and an uninjured normal contralateral knee for comparison. Exclusion criteria included previous knee ligamentous reconstruction, fracture of the distal femur or proximal tibia, bilateral knee injuries, or known cruciate ligament tear...

Kristamarie A Pratt, Susan M Sigward
Study Design Controlled laboratory study, cross-sectional. Background Well documented deficits in sagittal plane knee loading, during dynamic tasks indicate individuals limit the magnitude of knee loading following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). It is unknown how these individuals modulate the speed of knee flexion during loading, which is particularly important as they progress to running during rehabilitation. Objective To investigate how individuals following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction perform dynamic knee loading tasks compared to healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: The Segond fracture was classically described as an avulsion fracture of the anterolateral capsule of the knee. Recently, some authors have attributed its pathogenesis to the "anterolateral ligament" (ALL). Biomechanical studies that have attempted to reproduce this fracture in vitro have reported conflicting findings. PURPOSE: To determine the anatomic characteristics of the Segond fracture on plain radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to compare this location with the location of the ALL described in prior radiographic and anatomic publications, and to determine the fracture's attachments to the soft tissue anterolateral structures of the knee...

BACKGROUND: When anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction fails, a revision procedure may be performed to improve knee function, correct instability, and allow return to activities. The results of revision ACL reconstruction have been reported to produce good but inferior patient-reported and objective outcomes compared with primary ACL reconstruction, but the degree to which this is the case varies widely among published studies and may be influenced by heterogeneity of patients, techniques, and endpoints assessed...
