CLINICAL SCENARIO: A common injury among elite, recreational, and youth athletes is the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear.(1) Approximately 200,000 ACL injuries occur every year.(2) The gold standard in ACL injury evaluation is diagnostic arthroscopy,(3,4) however the diagnostic accuracy of clinical diagnostic tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is debatable.(1,3-6) Due to the frequency of knee injury,(3) MRI is a common diagnostic tool used for imaging and diagnosis(5). ACL tears are also diagnosed using clinical diagnostic tests...

CONTEXT: Reductions in objectively measured moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) have been reported among individuals with ACLR. Self-reported measures of physical activity are commonly utilized to assess participation in physical activity after ACLR despite the lack of evidence to support the validity of such measures within this population. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this research was to determine the relationships between objectively measured MVPA, self-reported physical activity, and knee function among individuals with ACLR...

PURPOSE: To compare the results of bone-patellar tendon-bone graft (BPTB), semitendinosus-gracilis graft with preserved insertions (STGPI) and semitendinosus-gracilis-free graft (STGF) in terms of graft failure, objective mechanical stability, functional outcome, and return to sports in elite and recreational sports persons. It was hypothesized that the STGPI graft provided superior outcome as compared to the other two grafts. METHODS: Two hundred and forty-nine elite and recreational players who underwent ACL reconstruction surgery, with BPTB graft (N = 80), STGPI graft (N = 85), and STGF graft (N = 84) with a minimum follow-up of 2 years, were assessed using clinical tests, knee arthrometer (KT 1000™), single-leg hop test, Lysholm knee score, Tegner's activity scale, and return to sports...

PURPOSE: To compare the different types of ACL reconstructions in terms of knee dynamic laxity evaluated by acceleration. METHODS: Sixteen fresh frozen cadaveric knees were used. Pivot shift test was manually performed while monitoring the tibial acceleration by use of a triaxial accelerometer. The test was repeated before and after the ACL resection and reconstruction. Three types of ACL reconstruction were tested: (1) Anatomic Single-Bundle reconstruction (n = 8), the graft was placed at the center of the ACL footprint for the both femoral and tibial sides (tunnel diameter: 8mm); (2) Conventional Single-Bundle reconstruction (n = 8), the graft was placed from the tibial PL footprint to femoral high AM position (tunnel diameter: 8mm) and (3) Anatomic Double-Bundle reconstruction (n = 8)...

A novel approach for therapeutic drug monitoring of oral anticoagulants (OA) in clinical samples is reported, based on a NP-based biobarcode assay. The proposed strategy uses specific antibodies for acenocumarol (ACL) covalently bound to magnetic particles (pAb236-MP) and a bioconjugate competitor (hACL-BSA) linked to encoded polystyrene probes (hACL-BSA-ePSP) on a classical competitive immunochemical format. By using this scheme ACL can be detected in low nM range (LOD, 0.96 ± 0.26, N = 3, in buffer) even in complex samples such as serum or plasma (LOD 4 ± 1)...

The flexion angle of the knee and the position of the tibia need to be considered during tensioning of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft to avoid overconstraining the knee. The purpose of this report was to describe 2 cases of loss of tibial internal rotation after single-bundle anatomic ACL reconstruction with graft tensioning in flexion. Retrospective review of each patient's operative chart revealed that the graft was tensioned in flexion and placed in an anatomic position in the femoral tunnel at the time of the index operation...

BACKGROUND: Current studies demonstrate encouraging short-term results after primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) suture anchor repair. However, earlier studies reported deterioration of knee function at 5-year follow-up following good clinical short-term recovery. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate clinical long-term results after primary ACL repair at a minimum 5-year follow-up. METHODS: In a retrospective study, 13 patients were included between 2009 and 2012...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in basketball appear to be more common when players are in possession of the ball. The greater risk of ACL injury when in possession of the ball may result from the athlete's inability to fully attend to their movement. However, it is also possible that having to carry/manipulate the ball restricts the athlete's ability to utilise their upper extremities for stability during a manoeuvre. The purpose of this study was to explore how possession of a basketball and divided attention influence lower extremity mechanics during cutting and landing...
