There have been many innovations in the field of ACL-reconstruction over the years, including the FlipCutter® and TightRope® system (both from Arthrex Inc.). The FlipCutter® is a combined guide pin and reamer that allows minimally invasive socket-creation from the inside out, especially in difficult-to-reach areas. The TightRope® is a further development of the well-known Endobutton™ (Smith & Nephew plc) that consists of a four-point knotless locking system. Its main advantage is its adjustability, which makes it possible to fill the entire bone socket with the graft without any empty space...

INTRODUCTION: We developed a novel technique of creating a rounded rectangular femoral bone tunnel for anatomical, single-bundle, autologous hamstring tendon anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Although this tunnel has many advantages, its non-circular shape has raised concerns regarding excessive graft shift within the bone tunnel. This study aimed to compare the graft shift between round and rounded rectangular tunnels using a graft diameter tester for simulating the femoral bone tunnel...

BACKGROUND: High-strength sutures, including #2 and tape-type, are popular when performing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Although the most common mechanism of anatomic failure of rotator cuff repair is suture pulling through tendon, the effect of sutures on the suture-tendon interface has rarely been investigated. We evaluated the effect of commercially available modern high-strength standard #2 and tape-type sutures on tendon. METHODS: Isolated sutures (FiberTape, #2 FiberWire [Arthrex Inc...

BACKGROUND: To propose a new term ('construct efficiency') for the evaluation of multi strands flexor tendon repairs using different suture materials. METHODS: A total of twenty specimens from 4-0 braided polyblend sutures (FiberLoop/FiberWire; Arthrex, Naples, FL) and 4-0 nylon sutures (Supramid Extra II; S. Jackson, Inc., Alexandria, VA) were subjected to tensile testing using Pneumatic Cord-and-Yarn Grips (Instron Corp., Canton MA, USA). The ultimate tensile strengths of the suture materials were measured...

Midfoot injuries are the second most common athletic foot injury documented in the published data. High-energy Lisfranc dislocations are commonly seen secondary to traumatic etiologies and disrupt the strong midfoot ligaments supporting the arch. These injuries require immediate surgical intervention to prevent serious complications such as compartment syndrome and amputation. The present case series reports a new Lapidus plate system used in 3 patients who underwent arthrodesis procedures for Lisfranc joint dislocation...

Objective Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a promising cell-based therapy treatment option for several orthopedic indications. Because culture expansion of MSC is time and cost intensive, a bedside concentration of bone marrow (BM) aspirate is used as an alternative. Many commercial systems are available but the available literature and knowledge regarding these systems is limited. We compared different point-of-care devices that concentrate BM (BMC) by focusing on technical features and quality parameters to help surgeons make informed decisions while selecting the appropriate device...

Background: Tibial attachment preserving hamstring graft could prevent potential problems of free graft in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction such as pull out before graft-tunnel healing or rupture before ligamentization. Different implants have been reportedly used for tibial side fixation with this technique. We investigated short-term outcome of ACL reconstruction (ACLR) with tibial attachment sparing hamstring graft without implant on the tibial side by outside in technique...

Achilles tendon ruptures are a common tendon injury, usually occurring in middle-aged men during recreational sporting activities. Both nonoperative and operative management are employed to treat these injuries. Several operative treatments are described in the literature, including percutaneous Achilles repair, mini-open repair, and open repair. Open Achilles repair is associated with higher rates of impaired wound healing and infection, whereas minimally invasive techniques have been reported to have an increased risk of iatrogenic sural nerve injury...

Latissimus dorsi tendon transfer is an effective option for young and active patients with massive irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears and intact subscapularis tendon. This approach has been shown to relieve pain and improve shoulder function in both the short and long term. We describe a surgical technique using an acromial osteotomy to better expose the greater tuberosity for the tendon transfer without disrupting the deltoid muscle. The latissimus dorsi tendon is reinforced with a human dermal collagen matrix (GraftJacket; Wright Medical Group) for additional augmentation of the muscle to gain more excursion for the tendon transfer to the greater tuberosity...

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries usually constitute part of a multiligament injury. Isolated PCL injuries account for only approximately 3% of all ligament injuries. No consensus on optimal surgical reconstruction exists. The PCL is a double-bundle structure that functions in an anisometric manner. Biomechanical studies have shown that re-creating the PCL femoral double-bundle configuration provides greater stability. We present a 3-socket approach for an anatomic "all-inside" double-bundle PCL reconstruction using our preferred option of a FiberTape (Arthrex, Naples, FL)-reinforced peroneus longus allograft fashioned to create a trifurcate graft: the TriLink technique...

The anterior cruciate ligament suture augmentation technique is a method to augment anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) with autologous hamstring tendons using a braided ultrahigh-molecular weight polyester or polyethylene suture or suture tape and fixed on both the femoral and tibial sides independent of the graft to act as a backup or secondary stabilizer until complete integration and ligamentization of the graft take place. The technique is proposed to allow early rehabilitation and return to sports after ACLR and may be advantageous in patients with a high body mass index and in cases with small grafts (7 or 7...

Longitudinal flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon tears are sometimes complicated by posterior ankle impingement syndrome (PAIS), especially in ballet dancers. In recent years, PAIS has been treated endoscopically, but it is difficult to suture FHL tendon tears endoscopically. In this report, we describe how to suture the FHL tendon endoscopically with the Meniscal Viper Repair system (Arthrex, Naples, FL). Without our endoscopic technique, when a patient is found to have a longitudinal tear of the FHL under endoscopy, we must choose to either neglect the tear or convert to an open repair...

Articular cartilage lesions of the tibial plateau are an uncommonly encountered clinical entity, and they have been comparatively less well studied than femoral condyle or patellofemoral defects. The management of these lesions is complicated by the challenging geometry, difficult surgical approach, and proximity to important anatomic structures, and thus, treating these lesions by previously established methods, such as osteochondral allograft transplantation or osteochondral autograft transfer, can be a technically challenging endeavor...

PURPOSE: Cortical suspensory devices are routinely used for femoral side fixation of soft tissue graft in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical properties of a new adjustable loop device (GraftMax®) compared with established devices (EndoButton® and TightRope®) in ACL reconstruction and to investigate whether knotting the free end of TightRope could improve biomechanical properties. METHODS: The three cortical suspensory devices (GraftMax® Button; Conmed, EndoButton® CL; Smith & Nephew, and TightRope® RT; Arthrex) were tested under cyclic load (50-250 N for 1000 cycles) and pull-to-failure conditions at 50 mm/h in a device-only setup using a tensile testing machine...

Injuries to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint are common, particularly in the young and active population. Approximately 9% of all shoulder girdle injuries involve the AC joint, and AC joint dislocations represent approximately 8% of all joint dislocations throughout the body. AC joint injuries are graded as type I through type VI according to the Rockwood classification. Type I and II injuries are typically treated nonoperatively, whereas type IV, V, and VI injuries are most often treated surgically. A variety of surgical techniques have been described, including anatomic and nonanatomic reconstruction...

The poor healing potential of tendons is still a clinical problem, and the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) was hypothesized to stimulate healing. As the efficacy of PRPs remains unproven, platelet lysate (PL) could be an alternative with its main advantages of storage and characterization before use. Five different blood products were prepared from 16 male donors: human serum, two PRPs (Arthrex, (PRP-ACP); RegenLab (PRP-BCT)), platelet concentrate (apheresis, PC), and PL (freezing-thawing destruction of PC)...
