REVIEW
Pierce Johnson, Sean M Mitchell, Simon Görtz
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To highlight current and established concepts regarding PCL injury and reconstruction. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent biomechanical and clinical studies have brought attention to improved surgical techniques and clinical outcomes of PCL reconstruction. In contrast to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries occur much less frequently and have traditionally been treated non-operatively. Even when a PCL injury meets operative indications, outcomes of PCL reconstruction historically do not match the success rates of ACL reconstruction procedures...

Unplanned sidestepping and single-leg landing have both been used to screen athletes for injury risk in sport. The aim of this study was to directly compare the lower limb mechanics of three single-leg landing tasks and an unplanned sidestepping task. Thirteen elite female team sport athletes completed a series of non-contact single-leg drop landings, single-leg countermovement jumps, single-leg jump landings and unplanned sidestepping in a randomized counterbalanced design. Three dimensional kinematics (250 Hz) and ground reaction force (2,000 Hz) data with a participant specific lower limb skeletal model were used to calculate and compare hip, knee and ankle joint kinematics, peak joint moments, instantaneous joint power and joint work during the weight acceptance phase of each sporting task (α=0...

Krishn Khanna, Abhinav Janghala, Nirav K Pandya
Background: Posterior hamstring harvest has been described in the adult population in a limited fashion, but no study is available describing the use of posterior hamstring harvest in an active pediatric and adolescent cohort. At times, surgeons may be faced with a challenging anterior harvest due to patient anatomic characteristics, particularly the anatomic features and size of the pes tendons. Clinicians need to have multiple harvest approaches at their disposal. Complications with hamstring harvest such as premature graft transection are more problematic in this population due to higher failure rates with allograft tissue...

Background: The literature on revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) outcomes is generally sparse, but previous studies have demonstrated that autograft use results in improved sports function and patient-reported outcome measures compared with allograft. However, knowledge is still lacking regarding the impact of graft type on rates of re-revision. Purpose: To investigate the clinical outcomes and failure rates of revision ACLRs performed with either allograft or autograft...

Several investigators have developed anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions (ACLR) with remnant tissue preservation (RTP) and have reported better clinical outcomes. However, the effects of RTP remain controversial. To date, no reports have compared both clinical and radiological outcomes of anatomic double-bundle ACLR using the hamstring tendon and outside-in technique with/without RTP. This article evaluates the effectiveness of RTP in ACLR on knee stability and graft maturation. In total, 75 patients with unilateral ACL injury who had undergone anatomic double-bundle ACLR using autografted hamstring tendon either with RTP (Group P, n  = 43) or without (Group N, n  = 32) were enrolled...

The outcome of single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction depends largely on the anatomic placement of bone tunnel. The lateral intercondylar ridge (LIR) and bifurcate ridge (BR) are useful bony landmarks for femoral tunnel placement. The purpose of our study was to compare the bony landmarks of ACL footprint on femur by three-dimensional computed tomography (3D CT) scan and arthroscopy in chronic ACL-deficient knees. Fifty patients above 18 years of age who were diagnosed of having ACL tear were selected for the study...

CONTEXT:   Greater passive hip range of motion (ROM) has been associated with greater dynamic knee valgus and thus the potential for increased risk of anterior cruciate ligament injuries. Normative data for passive hip ROM by sex are lacking. OBJECTIVE:   To establish and compare passive hip ROM values by sex and sport and to quantify side-to-side differences in internal-rotation ROM (ROMIR ), external-rotation ROM (ROMER ), and total ROM (ROMTOT ). DESIGN:   Cross-sectional study...

Background: The knee joint is frequently involved in sports and other injuries with Anterior cruciate ligament being a very common ligament to be injured. The Lachman test, pivot-shift test, and instrumented knee laxity examination are frequently used and reported for evaluation of ACL reconstruction. The aim of this study is to examine and evaluate the relationships between the clinical assessment of ligament stability and subjective assessment of symptoms and function after ACL reconstruction...

CONTEXT:   Central and peripheral neural adaptations have been identified after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and reconstruction (ACLR) and are hypothesized to contribute to posttraumatic muscle dysfunction. Limited evidence exists about the temporal nature of neuromuscular adaptations during early and late-term phases of recovery after ACLR, and no researchers have studied patients with posttraumatic osteoarthritis. OBJECTIVE:   To compare quadriceps neuromuscular function less than 2 years ( early) and more than 2 years ( late) after ACLR, including in patients who experienced posttraumatic knee osteoarthritis...

A femoral shaft fracture is usually a high-energy injury and, thus, is likely to be accompanied by an injury of adjacent joints such as a knee ligament injury. However, these associated injuries are often neglected because of severe pain and deformity. The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the incidence, type and risk factors of ipsilateral knee injuries associated with femoral shaft fractures. A total of 429 femoral shaft fractures were included in this study from January 2010 to September 2015. There were 320 males and 109 females, with mean age of 40...

BACKGROUND: Bone bruises are frequently found on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and have been related to the force associated with the trauma. Yet, little is known about the bone bruise distribution pattern of skeletally immature (SI) patients, as the presence of an open physis may play a role in energy dissipation given its unique structure. PURPOSE: To describe and compare the location and distribution of tibial and femoral bone bruises, observed on MRI, between 2 groups of ACL-injured knees: the first group with an open physis and the second with a closed physis...

PURPOSE: External loading of osteoarthritic and healthy knees correlates with current and future osteochondral tissue state. These relationships have not been examined following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. We hypothesised greater magnitude tibiofemoral contact forces were related to increased prevalence of osteochondral pathologies, and these relationships were exacerbated by concomitant meniscal injury. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of 100 individuals (29...

Shu Kobayashi, Kengo Harato, Kazuhiko Udagawa, Ko Masumoto, Masashi Jinnouchi, Takashi Toyoda, Yasuo Niki
Although a tibial eminence avulsion fracture is a rare knee injury, it can result in some complications such as nonunion, limited range of motion, and anterior instability of the knee if the displaced fracture is not well reduced. Arthroscopic procedures for this fracture have been commonly performed in recent years. In patients with small fragments, a pullout operation is usually performed, but arthroscopic suture reduction is technically difficult. In addition, anterior instability of the knee may remain even if the fragment is well reduced at the time of the surgical procedure...

Nicholas A Trasolini, George F Rick Hatch
Treatment of posterior cruciate ligament injuries remains controversial, particularly in the case of partial or incomplete tears in the context of a multiple ligament-injured knee. Suture augmentation, or internal bracing, has been shown in other ligament and tendon repairs or reconstructions to provide stable biomechanics and facilitate early return to activity. In the knee, suture augmentation has previously been used for the treatment of medial collateral ligament tears and in the support of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions...

ACL injury can be clinically diagnosed prior to imaging, and therefore understanding any symptomatology differences between age-groups and genders is critical. Data gathered from 341 patients with ACL injuries over six years showed no gender-based difference in ability to continue playing sport post-injury. Fewer males required crutches (37.2% vs. 49.5%, p = 0.04) and more males returned to sports prior to treatment (24.4% vs. 14.1%, p = 0.04). There was no age based difference in play continuation post-injury, however more elderly patients fell post-injury (<30 y: 91...
