BACKGROUND: The established surgical technique for lesion of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is reconstruction with an autologous tendon. However, patients after ACL-replacement have increased osteoarthritis rates. Possible explanations are persistent knee instability and the loss of the ACL's proprioceptive function. Therefore, surgeons have developed an alternative treatment to preserve the ACL by readapting femoral ACL lesions by temporary protective dynamic intraligamentary stabilisation (DIS)...

BACKGROUND: Aberrant walking-gait and jump-landing biomechanics may influence the development of post-traumatic osteoarthritis and increase the risk of a second anterior cruciate ligament injury, respectively. It remains unknown if individuals who demonstrate altered walking-gait biomechanics demonstrate similar altered biomechanics during jump-landing. Our aim was to determine associations in peak knee biomechanics and limb-symmetry indices between walking-gait and jump-landing tasks in individuals with a unilateral anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction...

To evaluate the value of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament injury (ACL injury) by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. A literature search was carried out in the Cochrane Library, Embase, Pubmed databases and included studies prior to April 2017. Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, studies evaluating ultrasound to diagnose ACL injury were selected. MRI, arthroscopy and clinical-follow were considered the reference standards. The diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound was assessed using a combination of sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratio (LR), post-test probability, diagnostic odds ratio (DOR) and by summarizing the area under the receiver operating characteristic (SROC) curve...

CONTEXT: Recent epidemiology studies indicated a steady increase of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in young athletes. ACL reconstruction (ACLR) is currently a standard of the care, but effect of ACLR graft including bone patellar tendon bone (BTB), hamstring tendon (HT), or iliotibial band (ITB) on balance and hop performance is understudied. OBJECTIVE: To compare balance and hop deficits between uninvolved and reconstructed limbs in each autograft type (aim 1) and among the three autograft groups (aim 2)...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are prevalent in contact sports that feature cutting and pivoting, such as American football. These injuries typically require surgical treatment, can result in significant missed time from competition, and may have deleterious long-term effects on an athlete's playing career and health. While the majority of ACL tears in other sports have been shown to occur from a noncontact mechanism, it stands to reason that a significant number of ACL tears in American football would occur after contact, given the nature of the sport...

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is an important structure that maintains the stability of knee joints. Animal models of ACL injury are helpful to explore its underlying mechanisms, and strategies for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to develop an efficient model of ACL injury in cynomolgus monkeys via arthroscopic techniques. In the present study, 18 cynomolgus monkeys were randomly divided into a model group (n=6), a sham operation group (n=6) and a blank control group (n=6)...

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...

Although the function of the anterolateral stabilizing structures of the knee in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries has been recognized since many years, most of orthopedic surgeons do not take the anterolateral structure into consideration when performing an ACL reconstruction. Anatomic ACL reconstruction will improve knee stability, but a small subset of patients may experience some residual anteroposterior and rotational instability. For this reason, some researchers have paid attention to the anterolateral aspects of the knee, especially the anterolateral ligament...

Joint injury is the predominant risk factor for post-traumatic osteoarthritis development (PTOA). Several non-invasive mouse models mimicking human PTOA investigate molecular mechanisms of disease development; none have characterised the inflammatory response to this acute traumatic injury. Our aim was to characterise the early inflammatory phase and later degenerative component in our in vivo non-invasive murine model of PTOA induced by anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. Right knees of 12-week-old C57Bl6 mice were placed in flexion at a 30° offset position and subjected to a single compressive load (12N, 1...

PURPOSE: Meniscal tears are common in Kenya, with prevalence rates ranging from 45 to 78% of intracapsular knee pathology. Diagnosis of these injuries relies on the use of both clinical signs and symptoms as well as radiological investigations. In a few instances, radiological detection could be difficult, partly because of variant attachment patterns of the medial meniscal anterior horn. Some of these unusual attachments of the anterior horn of the medial meniscus could even be mistaken for meniscal tears...
