BACKGROUND: The purpose of our study was to identify factors affecting posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tightness during cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty. METHODS: A total of 225 varus osteoarthritic knees that underwent cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty were included in this study. When the flexion gap was tighter than the extension gap after all bone resection and the lift-off sign was positive during surgery, the PCL was released. The association between PCL release and potential risk factors, such as age, gender, body mass index, preoperative range of motion, anterior cruciate ligament status, preoperative hip-knee-ankle angle (HKA), decrease in posterior condylar offset, and also change in tibial posterior slope angle (TPSA) from preoperative to postoperative measurement, was evaluated by univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses...

PURPOSE: The aims of this study are to describe the epidemiological characteristics of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions in a private hospital in Brazil and to determine trends in medical practice for comparison with previous studies. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the anterior cruciate ligament institutional register to obtain data from all patients who underwent primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction from July 2014 to June 2016. Descriptive statistics were used to summarize the sample...

CONTEXT:   Aberrant biomechanics may affect force attenuation at the knee during dynamic activities, potentially increasing the risk of sustaining a knee injury or hastening the development of osteoarthritis after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Impaired quadriceps neuromuscular function has been hypothesized to influence the development of aberrant biomechanics. OBJECTIVE:   To determine the association between quadriceps neuromuscular function (strength, voluntary activation, and spinal-reflex and corticomotor excitability) and sagittal-plane knee biomechanics during jump landings in individuals with ACLR...

Current total knee replacement designs work to address clinically desired knee stability and range of motion through a balance of retained anatomy and added implant geometry. However, simplified implant geometries such as bearing surfaces, posts, and cams are often used to replace complex ligamentous constraints that are sacrificed during most total knee replacement procedures. This article evaluates a novel total knee replacement design that incorporates synthetic ligaments to enhance the stability of the total knee replacement system...

Objective This study was performed to evaluate the visibility of the knee's anterolateral ligament (ALL) by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging when evaluating injuries of the ALL in relation to injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Methods Two reviewers retrospectively analyzed MR images for the visibility and dimensions of the ALL and the relationship between ALL and ACL injuries. The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and kappa analysis were used to assess interobserver reliability. The chi-square test was used to assess the relationship between ALL and ACL injuries...

Anterior cruciate ligament injury is one of the most common injuries of knee joint. Arthroscopic reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament is the most commonly performed procedure. A variety type of fixation techniques are being used nowadays, such as interference screw, cortical suspension fixation and transfix, all of which can achieve good effect, with both advantages and disadvantages. However, the healing of reconstructed grafts is a complicated and long-term process, which can be affected by many factors...

The crossing internal suture augmentation technique is an all-inside technique of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with augmentation of the hamstring tendon autograft with a braided ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyester-polyethylene suture tape resting on the adjustable cortical buttons on both the femoral and tibial sides. The internal suture augmentation acts as a backbone supporting and protecting the graft until the process of healing and ligamentization of the graft is completed. The ends of the suture tape are tied on the tibial button and additionally fixed to the tibia with a knotless anchor as a backup fixation with the knee in full extension...

Bone defects caused by femoral and tibial tunnel enlargement can pose a significant technical challenge when planning to perform revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. A number of options have been described for managing osseous deficiencies, including the use of large autograft or allograft bone dowels to provide sufficient tunnel fill and subsequent structural support for revision surgery. These techniques can be time-consuming and technically demanding to ensure proper tunnel fill and press-fit stability of the bone graft...

Posterolateral corner injuries are a severe and often unrecognized pathology. Injuries to these structures are difficult to identify using magnetic resonance images. Physical examination tests including the dial test, frog-leg test, and varus stress test can be difficult to perform. In addition it is difficult to correctly evaluate the results in a multiligament injury setting. The correct diagnosis of this pathology is essential to determine the proper treatment and improve outcomes. Furthermore, failure to recognize this pathology is associated with a high risk of failure following isolated anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions...

Hamstring autografts are frequently used for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The inherent variability in graft diameter has been stated as a disadvantage in its use because the presence of smaller graft diameters has been correlated with increased risk of re-rupture. Several techniques have been described to address this concern. Modifications of the basic Graftlink technique allows for increased control over final graft diameter using a standard harvest of the semitendinosus tendon with or without the gracilis tendon, and results in a graft of adequate length and diameter in all patients with rigid cortical fixation on the femur and tibia...

High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is a useful alternative in the treatment of symptomatic varus malalignment. However, among its drawbacks is the tendency to decrease patellar height and increase the posterior tibial slope. The increased tibial slope increases anterior cruciate ligament tension and may compromise its function. On the other hand, patella baja often causes anterior knee pain and, over time, may favor degeneration of the patellofemoral joint. The aim of this study is to describe a technical modification of the standard open-wedge HTO...

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is one of the most commonly performed procedures in orthopaedics, with more than 125,000 performed in the United States per year. There are several reconstruction graft choices that can be used to reconstruct the native anterior cruciate ligament, with autograft hamstring tendons being one of the most commonly used. Preparation of a hamstring autograft varies depending on patient characteristics and physician preference. The purpose of this Technical Note is to describe in detail different variants of hamstring graft preparation techniques that are commonly used in practice...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears have persistent quadriceps strength deficits that are thought to be due to altered neurophysiological function. Our goal was to determine the changes in muscle fiber contractility independent of the ability of motor neurons to activate fibers. METHODS: We obtained quadriceps biopsies of patients undergoing ACL reconstruction, and additional biopsies one, two, and six months after surgery. Muscles fiber contractility was assessed in vitro, along with whole muscle strength testing...

BACKGROUND: The method of graft fixation in primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is important for initial stability of the graft. Poor graft fixation can result in failure of the reconstruction. The effect of ACL graft fixation principles and fixation implant combinations on the risk of revision after ACL reconstruction is not well understood. PURPOSE: The study aimed to compare the risk of revision among 4 categories of femoral fixation divided by their principle of function using a hamstring tendon (HT) graft only...
