Reconstruction of segmental bone defects requires a large commitment both on the part of the patient and the physician. Investing in preoperative evaluation and optimization is the only logical way to pursue such an endeavor. Unfortunately, detailed studies regarding segmental bone defects and preoperative factors are relatively lacking owing to the relatively low incidence of the problem. Fortunately, other orthopaedic pathologies (arthritis, ligamentous injuries about the knee) have high prevalence and consistency, allowing detailed analysis of preoperative factors...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Our retrospective study presents the comparison of the preoperative magnetic resonance imaging of the knee joint - MRI - and the arthroscopic finding - ASC. Its aim is to find out how a positive or a negative finding of MRI corresponds with the operative finding and how much the experience of radiologist contributes to the conformity. MATERIAL AND METHODS The MRI findings of knee joints treated surgically at two departments in 2013 and 2014 were assessed. The MRI was performed in a total of 470 patients who subsequently underwent an arthroscopic surgery...

Recent prospective cohort studies have reported preseason functional performance test (FPT) measures and associations with future risk of injury; however, the findings associated with these studies have been equivocal. The purpose of this study was to determine the ability of a battery of FPTs as a preseason screening tool to identify female Division III (D III) collegiate athletes who may be at risk for a non-contact time-loss injury to the lower quadrant [LQ = low back and lower extremities]. One hundred six female D III athletes were recruited for this study...

Kettlebell exercises have become an increasingly popular form of resistance training and component of lower body rehabilitative training programs; despite a lack of scientific literature illustrating internal mechanisms and effectiveness of these approaches. Participants (n=14) performed three different styles of kettlebell swings (hip hinge, squat and double knee extension) and were assessed for medial hamstrings (MH) and biceps femoris (BF) myoelectrical activity via surface electromyography (sEMG). Bipolar pre-gelled Ag/AgCl surface electromyography (sEMG) electrodes (10mm diameter, 20mm inter-electrode distance) were placed on the participant's dominant limb after correct skin preparation...

We present the case of a professional adolescent footballer who attended our clinic with ongoing instability symptoms and valgus knee deformity after conservative management of an medial collateral ligament injury. The patient was found to have sustained a contra-coup Salter Harris Type V injury to his lateral distal femur physis resulting in premature growth arrest and deformity. Salter Harris Type V injuries are rare, and often not diagnosed until growth has arrest has occurred due to lack of identifiable features on initial plain radiographs...

BACKGROUND: Multi-ligament knee injury (MLKI) associated with knee dislocation can result in vascular injury. The purpose of this study was to compare knee function after MLKI between patients with a vascular injury requiring popliteal artery bypass grafting and patients without vascular involvement. Additionally, factors associated with poor knee function in patients who had MLKI with vascular injury were evaluated. METHODS: This retrospective study identified patients with an MLKI between 1992 and 2014...

We report the results of a symposium aimed at identifying validated biomarkers that can be used to complement clinical observations for diagnosis and prognosis of joint injury leading to equine osteoarthritis (OA). Biomarkers might also predict pre-fracture change that could lead to catastrophic bone failure in equine athletes. The workshop was attended by leading scientists in the fields of equine and human musculoskeletal biomarkers to enable cross-disciplinary exchange and improve knowledge in both. Detailed proceedings with strategic planning was written, added to, edited and referenced to develop this manuscript...

The effectiveness of vertical drop jumps (VDJs) to screen for non-contact ACL injuries is unclear. This may be contributed to by discrete point analysis, which does not evaluate patterns of movement. Also, limited research exists on the second landing of VDJs, potential lower limb performance asymmetries and the effect of fatigue. Statistical parametric mapping investigated the main effects of landing, limb dominance and a high intensity, intermittent exercise protocol (HIIP) on VDJ biomechanics. Twenty-two male athletes (21...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured ligament occurs in young adult population, which markedly reduces activity level. Anterior cruciate ligament rupture is a threat to the homeostasis of the knee. So, reconstruction of the ACL is necessary to make them fit and return to their pre-injury activity level. The choice of graft for ACL reconstruction is a matter of debate, with the BPTB graft and quadruple graft of ST-G being the two most popular options. Use of triplet graft of semi-tendinosus tendon alone without sacrificing gracilis is another option...

BACKGROUND: A timely return to competitive sport is a primary goal of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). It is not known if an accelerated return-to-sport increases the risk of early-onset knee osteoarthritis (KOA). OBJECTIVE: To determine whether an accelerated return-to-sport post-ACLR (i.e., <10 months) is associated with increased odds of early KOA features on MRI 1-year post-surgery, and to evaluate the relationship between an accelerated return-to-sport and early KOA features stratified by type of ACL injury (isolated or concurrent chondral/meniscal injury) and lower-limb function (good or poor)...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are typically seen in cutting sports. Rehabilitation can be tried in athletes in non-cutting sports and in recreational athletes. If knee instability is experienced, the cessation of risk activities or reduction in activity level are recommended. With recurrent episodes of instability ACL-reconstruction is recommended. 65% return to sports at preinjury level after ACL-reconstruction, 18% after non-operated partial rupture and 7% after non-operated total rupture.

Running is one of the most popular sports among the adult Danish population. Overuse injuries of the knee, such as runners knee, jumpers knee, patello-femoral pain syndrome and patello-femoral pre-arthrosis, are common and cause reduction of the health beneficial physical activity. Treatment should primarily focus on adjustment of training habits and physiotherapeutic guided rehabilitation. Other treatment options include changing landing pattern during running, corticosteroid injections, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs and ultimately surgery...

The menisci play a major role in knee function regarding joint movement, stability, load distribution and load transmission. Injuries to the menisci cause pain, and meniscal tears are a common reason for patient referral. In Denmark, partial meniscectomy increased significantly until 2010, and several studies have questioned the long-term effect of meniscectomy as an overall procedure. A Danish national clinical guideline on knee meniscal pathology was published in May 2016, and this article is a short summary of updated knowledge on meniscal pathology and relevant conclusions from the guideline...

PURPOSE: Quadriceps femoris (QF) strength deficits at return-to-sport (RTS) after ACL reconstruction (ACLR) contribute to decreased knee function at the same time point. However, the impact of QF strength at RTS on longitudinal function has not been examined. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that young athletes after ACLR with QF strength asymmetry at RTS would demonstrate decreased knee-related function and lower proportions of functional recovery at 1 year post-RTS compared to young athletes following ACLR with nearly symmetric QF strength at RTS...

INTRODUCTION: During anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction procedures, anterolateral reconstruction (ALR) can also be performed to improve the knee's rotational stability. However, the effectiveness of this supplemental technique and its impact on the risk of retears and on the onset of secondary degenerative changesare controversial. HYPOTHESIS: ALR improves control over the pivot shift, reduces the retear risk and delays the appearance of secondary degenerative lesions...

Background The incidence of knee ligament injury is increasing and represents a significant cost to healthcare providers. Current interventions include tissue grafts, suture repair and non-surgical management. These techniques have demonstrated good patient outcomes but have been associated graft rejection, infection, long term immobilization and reduced joint function. The limitations of traditional management strategies have prompted research into tissue engineering of knee ligaments. Objective This paper aims to evaluate whether tissue engineering of knee ligaments offers a viable alternative in the clinical management of knee ligament injuries...

There is an increasing biomechanical and anatomical understanding of the different types of meniscal lesions. Lesions of the posterior part of the medial meniscus in the meniscosynovial area have recently received increased attention. They generally occur in association with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. They are often missed ("hidden lesions") due to the fact that they cannot be seen by routine anterior arthroscopic inspection. Furthermore, meniscosynovial lesions play a role in anteroposterior knee laxity and, as such, they may be a cause of failure of ACL reconstruction or of postoperative persistent laxity...
