Background: Patients with an anterior cruciate ligament-deficient varus-angulated knee may need not only an isolated high tibial osteotomy (HTO), but also an additional anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). A number of prospective clinical trials have been published considering the combination of HTO and ACL reconstruction. Our aim was to investigate whether one-stage combined HTO and ACL reconstruction is an effective, well-established technique with long-term results in the treatment of varus-angulated knees with ACL deficiency...

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...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears represent one of the most common sports-related injuries in the young population. There are multiple studies showing higher failure rates in the younger population with an allograft supporting the routine use of an autograft. In addition, higher failure rates have been shown with grafts narrower than 8 mm in diameter. This places the surgeon in an operative dilemma determining what to do with a narrow graft or an attenuated hamstring during harvest. All-inside ACL reconstruction is a promising technique for reliably creating sufficiently wide grafts without the need for allograft augmentation...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures are common and unfortunate injuries for many athletes. The standard therapy for ACL rupture is ACL reconstruction with either autograft, harvested from hamstring or patellar tendon, or allograft tendon from a tissue donor. Advances in tissue engineering have produced interventions to augment the healing process and may have applications when it comes to ACL reconstruction. In this Technical Note and accompanying video, we describe a simple technique to implant an amnion matrix graft with a tendon graft during ACL reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have documented early functional recovery after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. PURPOSE: To quantify the time to early functional milestone achievement and change in function over 12 weeks after ACL reconstruction and to identify demographic characteristic predictors of the outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, longitudinal, observational study. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level 4. METHODS: A total of 182 patients (95 females, 87 males; mean ± SD age, 28 ± 12 years; mean ± SD body mass index [BMI], 25 ± 4 kg/m2 ) who received primary, unilateral, ACL reconstruction were included...

Surgical repair of tendons of the foot and ankle is performed utilizing various methods, including autografts, allografts, and synthetic grafts. Artelon is a synthetic biomaterial that is fabricated from wet-spun fibers of PCL-based polyurethane urea, and has, optimal mechanical properties compared with other grafting options. Because of excellent results of Artelon in ACL reconstruction, its use was explored in 3 foot and ankle cases: repair of Achilles, posterior tibial, and peroneal tendons. Artelon has proven to be a successful alternative for tendon repairs, with all 3 cases returning to full function within 8 to 16 weeks and with no complications related to the graft...

PURPOSE: Graft choice for primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R) is debated, with considerable controversy and variability among surgeons. Autograft tendons are actually the most used grafts for primary surgery; however, allografts have been used in greater frequency for both primary and revision ACL surgery over the past decade. Given the great debate on the use of allografts in ACL-R, the "Allografts for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction" consensus statement was developed among orthopedic surgeons and members of SIGASCOT (Società Italiana del Ginocchio, Artroscopia, Sport, Cartilagine, Tecnologie Ortopediche), with extensive experience in ACL-R, to investigate their habits in the use of allograft in different clinical situations...

CASE: A 36-year-old woman sustained a medial tibial plateau fracture involving a tibial tunnel that had been used 4 years prior for an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with a bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) allograft in the same knee. At 26 months following open reduction and internal fixation of the tibial plateau fracture (6 years following the index ACL reconstruction), the patient returned to full activity. CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this is the first report of a tibial plateau fracture following ACL reconstruction with a BPTB allograft, which adds to the paucity of literature discussing tibial plateau fractures following ACL reconstruction and discusses the potential predisposing factors to fracture such as ACL graft selection and surgical technique...

Prior studies have not found significant differences in meniscal parameters between patients with meniscal and ligamentous injury and those without. The purpose of this study was to determine whether such relationships exist. Clinical records and magnetic resonance images of three subject groups were reviewed. Group 1 solely had meniscal tears (medial/lateral), Group 2 had meniscal tears with concurrent ACL tears, and Group 3 had healthy knees. The mean age of subjects included was 35.9 years (range 8.2-72...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have evaluated the influence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction on the outcome of cartilage repair. Hypothesis/Purpose: The purpose was to investigate the association between ACL reconstruction and functional outcomes after osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation. The hypothesis was that patients treated with OCA transplantation who had a history of ACL reconstruction would have inferior clinical outcomes and lower osteochondral graft survivorship when compared with a matched group of patients undergoing OCA transplantation without a history of ACL reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL), including anticardiolipin (aCL), anti-β2 -glycoprotein I (anti-β2GPI), and lupus anticoagulant (LA) antibodies, are frequently found in liver cirrhosis and associated with splanchnic vein thrombosis. Although the risk factors of early allograft dysfunction (EAD) are known, the association between EAD and aPL has been poorly investigated. We hypothesized that LA, potent aPL with thrombotic potential, may be associated with EAD development after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT)...

Soft tissue allograft augmentation of small hamstring autografts, so-called hybrid grafts, has been proposed as an option during anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R). However, notable concerns exist with both small autograft use and allograft use during ACL-R, particularly in young, active patients. We currently choose to augment hamstring autografts with diameters <8.0 mm, adding only enough allograft to create a hybrid graft with an overall diameter no larger than 8.5 mm. Based on the available evidence, surgeons continue to seek the tipping point where the benefit of additional allograft tissue exceeds the consequence of its use...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent patellar instability incidence is 5.8/100,000 population, and recurrent dislocations are reported in the range of 15-80%. Recurrent instability is multifactorial and can be associated with disorder of limb alignment, osseous development, congruity of the patella in the trochlea and soft tissue static and dynamic constraints. The multifactorial aetiology makes management challenging, and a lack studies in a heterogeneous population with robust clinical outcomes compounds this further...

It is commonly recommended to reconstruct a torn anterior cruciate ligament in active patients; however, there is no consensus concerning the tissue source to use for the reconstruction. Bone-patellar tendon-bone and hamstring (semitendinosis +/- gracilis) autografts are most commonly used, with allografts being another option. Each tissue has its pros and cons, with allografts often cited as having higher failure rates. However, review of the literature comparing autografts and allografts have showed similar outcomes in age-matched adult populations...

Traditional bone-patellar tendon-bone and hamstring tendon ACL grafts are not without limitations. A growing body of anatomic, biomechanical and clinical data has demonstrated the utility of quadriceps tendon autograft in arthroscopic knee ligament reconstruction. The quadriceps tendon autograft provides a robust volume of tissue that can be reliably harvested, mitigating the likelihood of variably sized grafts and obviating the necessity of allograft augmentation. Modern, minimally invasive harvest techniques offer the advantages of low rates of donor site morbidity and residual extensor mechanism strength deficits...

PURPOSE: A common problem during ACL reconstruction is asymmetry of proximal-distal graft diameter leading to tunnel upsizing and graft-tunnel mismatch. Compression downsizing provides a graft of uniform size, allowing easy passage into a smaller tunnel. The purpose of this study was to quantify the graft compression technique and its effects on graft biomechanics and stability. It was hypothesised that compression downsizing would significantly reduce cross-sectional area (CSA); that no significant changes in graft biomechanics would occur; graft fixation stability would be improved...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is the current standard of care for ACL tears. However, the results are not consistently successful; autografts or allografts have certain disadvantages; and synthetic grafts have had poor clinical results.
