BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the current practices and preferences of the arthroscopic surgeons of Delhi in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. METHODS: It was a cross-sectional descriptive study conducted among arthroscopic surgeons of Delhi. A survey was conducted using a questionnaire that was sent either by e-mail or by direct contact to all sixty arthroscopic surgeons of Delhi...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is one of the most commonly performed and researched orthopedic procedures. As technology and comparative research have advanced, surgical practices have changed to achieve a superior outcome. Our group performed a survey of orthopedic surgeons to evaluate current practice trends and techniques as a follow-up to similar surveys performed in 1999 and 2006. In a survey between 2013 and 2014 consisting of 35 questions regarding the surgical technique, graft choice, fixation method, and perioperative care in ACL reconstruction was sent electronically to the members of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine and the Arthroscopy Association of North America...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is increasing, especially in young active adults. Various surgical options like bone-patellar tendon-bone graft and hamstring autograft have been the focus of evaluation and comparison in various aspects, each having specific advantages and demerits. We are increasingly using and analysing quadrupled hamstring autograft for ACL reconstruction. Previously it was advocated as a sports injury, but now we note that road traffic accidents (RTAs) are the most common cause of ACL tear...

INTRODUCTION: Numerous rehab protocols have been used in rehabilitation after ACL reconstruction. Isokinetic testing is an objective way to evaluate dynamic stability of the knee joint that estimates the quality of rehabilitation outcome after ACL reconstruction. Our investigation goal was to show importance of isokinetic testing in evaluation thigh muscle strength in patients which underwent ACL reconstruction and rehabilitation protocol. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In prospective study, we evaluated 40 subjects which were divided into two groups...

PURPOSE: Lack of return to sport following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction often occurs despite adequate restoration of knee function, and there is growing evidence that psychological difference among patients may play an important role in this discrepancy. The purpose of this review is to identify baseline psychological factors that are predictive of clinically relevant ACL reconstruction outcomes, including return to sport, rehab compliance, knee pain, and knee function...

Careful technique of examination of the knee joint allows to establish the diagnosis of the most frequent knee joint injuries already through simple clinical and radiological evaluation: Recurrent dislocation of the patella with the Apprehension sign; meniscal injuries with the test of McMurray, pain on the joint line and pain on passive hyperextension; the anterior cruciate ligament tear with Lachman's sign and the Pivot Shift test and posterior cruciate injury with the Sag sign. Further imaging techniques allow to establish a definite diagnosis, which has replaced in many cases the classical, purely diagnostic arthroscopy...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of Endobutton post-fixation and femoral (TransFix) transfixation in ACL reconstruction on lower extremity muscle strength, joint position sense, and knee stability. METHODS: Subjects who had undergone ACL reconstruction with hamstring tendon using Endobutton post-fixation (n=20, mean age: 26.5 years) or femoral transfixation (n=20, mean age: 29.9 years) were recruited to an ACL rehabilitation program. Twelve months after surgery, quadriceps and hamstring torque values were recorded using an isokinetic dynamometer...

REVIEW

The rehabilitation process begins immediately following ACL injury, with emphasis on reducing swelling and inflammation; improving motion; regaining quadriceps control; allowing immediate weight-bearing; and restoring full passive knee extension and, gradually, flexion. The goal of preoperative rehabilitation is to prepare the patient mentally and physically for surgery. Once the ACL surgery is performed, it is important to alter the rehab program based on the type of graft used and any concomitant procedures performed...

The purpose of this investigation was to explore the potential for using a neural network approach in objectively determining the status of ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) rehabilitation. Nine male subjects (three each of non-injured, in-rehab, post-rehab conditions) were matched for size and strength. The testing protocol was established by a physical therapist: each leg was tested at three different speeds on a Cybex machine with electromyography (EMG) and torque data collected concurrently. Neural net training and testing sets were created from the values of peak torque, time to peak torque, EMG mean power frequency, the EMG root mean square (RMS), and a value representing the ACL condition of the tested leg from each of 15 repetitions...
