The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture is a common disease that accounts for 250,000 cases/year in the United States. The anterolateral ligament (ALL) has been suggested to be an important restraint for rotational instability, and its reconstruction provides a reinforcement to the ACL reconstruction in this aspect, especially in high-demand athletes and in knees with high-grade pivot shift. Different techniques for associated ACL and ALL reconstruction have been described, but the ideal technique remains unclear...

BACKGROUND: Quadriceps tendon-patellar bone (QTPB) autograft is an excellent graft option with good clinical outcome. Use of QTPB autografts have increased because they minimize donor-site morbidity including anterior knee pain, while providing adequate mechanical strength. Although, there were many clinical results about allografts that used in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, it have never been reported about the clinical outcome of ACL reconstruction with QTPB allograft...

Approaches to management of combined anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and high-grade medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries remain controversial. Some studies suggest that with grade III MCL injuries, patients may benefit from concurrent MCL reconstruction to restore stability and prevent increased stress on the ACL graft. We present a technique for simultaneous ACL/MCL reconstructions using a single Achilles tendon allograft.

High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is a valid treatment option for young active patients with medial tibiofemoral osteoarthrosis (OA) and varus deformity. Sometimes medial OA is combined with symptomatic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency. Although isolated HTO (with possible delayed ACL reconstruction) might be indicated in the older population, young active patients may require combined HTO and ACL reconstruction. In addition, an abnormally increased tibial slope may predispose to ACL reconstruction failure and should be addressed for a successful ACL revision...

Hamstring tendon autograft remains a popular graft choice for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Although there are a variety of autograft and allograft options available for ACL reconstruction, advantages of hamstring tendon autografts include decreased postoperative knee pain and an overall easier surgical recovery compared with bone patellar tendon bone autograft. In addition, 4-stranded (quadruple) hamstring grafts are among the strongest grafts biomechanically (at time equals zero). Although the technique of hamstring autograft harvest is relatively straightforward, it is critical to pay attention to several technical steps to avoid iatrogenic neurovascular damage as well as to avoid premature amputation of the graft while using a tendon stripper...

Revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is substantially more challenging than primary reconstruction. Management of previously malpositioned or widened tunnels often requires innovative approaches for managing bony defects. Massive osteolysis with poor bone stock and convergence or overlapping of revision tunnels into the previously placed tunnels may necessitate a staged revision procedure. In this surgical technique description, we describe a method for the management of bony deficiencies using allograft bone dowels in staged revision ACL reconstruction...

Despite the popularity of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction procedures, the ideal graft for reconstruction remains a matter of controversy. The ideal graft for ACL reconstruction should have histologic and biomechanical characteristics similar to those of the native ACL; should be quickly and fully incorporated within the bony tunnels; should maintain its viscoelastic properties for a long time; should have minimal donor-site morbidity; should be of sufficient length and diameter; should have minimal adverse effects on the extensor mechanism; should have no risk of rejection or disease transmission; and should be cost-effective and readily available...

Background: In kidney transplant recipients, anticardiolipin (ACL) antibodies without antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) are found in up to 38% of patients and could be associated with thrombotic events (TEs). However, the prognostic role of ACL regarding kidney transplant and patients outcomes have still not been well defined. Methods: We conducted an observational, monocentric, retrospective cohort study including 446 kidney transplant recipients and standardized follow-up: 36-month allograft and patient survival, 12-month estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and 3- and 12-month screening biopsies...

Even with the most accurate individualized, anatomic approach to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, the potential for graft failure still exists, with reported retear rates as low as 5%, and even higher in female athletes or patients reconstructed with allograft. ACL graft healing is dependent on several factors, including anatomic placement, appropriate graft choice, proper technique, recovery time, and the biological environment of nature. If the double-bundle concept is followed and individualized for each patient's anatomic morphology, the ACL will biologically reform...

BACKGROUND: Articular cartilage health is an important issue following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and primary ACL reconstruction. Factors present at the time of primary ACL reconstruction may influence the subsequent progression of articular cartilage damage. HYPOTHESIS: Larger meniscus resection at primary ACL reconstruction, increased patient age, and increased body mass index (BMI) are associated with increased odds of worsened articular cartilage damage at the time of revision ACL reconstruction...

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is cited as the most frequently injured ligament in the knee. The standard treatment of ACL injury remains ligament reconstruction followed by a postoperative physiotherapeutic procedure. During the reconstruction, the torn ligament can be replaced with an autograft or an allograft. A synthetic ligament is also one of the available graft options. Synthetic grafts in ruptured ACL treatment have been used as scaffolds, stents, or prostheses. The story of using synthetic materials in ACL deficient knee treatment started in the beginning of the 20th century with the usage of silk and silver fibers...
