BACKGROUND: Patients with tumors invading major veins may require combined resection and reconstruction. However, venous reconstruction often demands complex hepatobiliary and vascular surgical procedures. In this study, we report a simple patch repair technique for venous reconstruction using the repermeabilized umbilical vein of the round ligament. METHODS: We reviewed the outcomes of eleven patients who underwent venous wedge resection and patch repair using the repermeabilized umbilical vein of the round ligament at our institution...

BACKGROUND: The palmaris longus tendon is frequently used as a tendon graft or ligament replacement. In rare instances the median nerve has been inadvertently harvested instead of the palmaris longus for use as a tendon. METHODS: Nineteen cases in which the median nerve had been mistakenly harvested instead of the palmaris longus tendon were collected from members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) Listserve. Surgeons involved in the subsequent care of the subject who had had an inadvertent harvest were contacted or the chart was reviewed...

BACKGROUND: There is some evidence that functional performance and validated outcome scores differ according to the gender, age, and sport participation status of a patient after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. However, the impact of these three factors, and interaction among them, has not been studied across a large relatively homogeneous group of patients to better elucidate their impact. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We reviewed a large cohort of patients who had undergone ACL reconstruction to determine if ROM, knee laxity, objective performance measures, and validated outcome scores differed according to (1) gender; (2) age; and (3) sport participation status...

BACKGROUND: The most widely used graft as a replacement in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is the semitendinosus (ST) tendon graft. After harvesting for ACL reconstruction, the hamstring tendon regenerates in most people and becomes similar to normal. The effect of graft harvest on muscle morphology and function remains unclear. The present study aimed to examine the morphology of the ST during isometric contraction after harvesting the ST tendon for ACL reconstruction...

PURPOSE: Asymmetries in knee joint biomechanics and increased knee joint laxity in patients following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) are considered risk factors for re-tear or early onset of osteoarthritis. Nevertheless, the relationship between these factors has not been established. The aim of the study was to compare knee mechanics during landing from a bilateral drop vertical jump in patients following ACLR and control participants and to study the relationship between side-to-side asymmetries in landing mechanics and knee joint laxity...

Among the various reasons for chronic posttraumatic ulnar-sided wrist pain, instability of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) has recently received major attention and finally achieved fundamental progress in understanding thanks to anatomic and biomechanical studies. This has resulted in more physiological and successful treatment methods compared with the historic options. One and the most dramatic surgical technique consists in the replacement of the main ligamentous stabilizer of the DRUJ, the so-called triangular fibrocartilage, with a tendon graft...

Macrophage-related inflammatory response is one of the main biological factors resulting in failure of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, although the specific pathomechanism remains to be clarified. Our aim was to investigate the association between graft loosening and macrophage-related inflammation in cases of loosening of reconstructed ACL autografts. Tissue samples were obtained from 21 patients who underwent a second-look arthroscopy within the first year after arthroscopic ACL reconstruction using single-bundle hamstring tendon autografts...

PURPOSE: To assess the role of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on the eligibility for arthroscopic primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair. METHODS: All patients undergoing ACL surgery between 2008 and 2017 were included. Patients underwent arthroscopic primary repair if sufficient tissue length and quality were present, or they underwent single-bundle ACL reconstruction. Preoperative MRI tear locations were graded with the modified Sherman classification: type I (>90% distal remnant length), type II (75-90%), or type III (25-75%)...

Given the prevalence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in young athletes, it is essential to elucidate and illustrate surgical interventions that return the most favorable outcomes. Although most ACL injuries are full-thickness tears, occasionally either the anteromedial (AM) or posterolateral (PL) bundle is torn in isolation, allowing consideration of an ACL reconstruction or augmentation. Because the ACL-deficient knee has been shown to exhibit less proprioceptive feedback, the preservation of the intact bundle may offer an inherent component of stability...
