BACKGROUND: Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is touted as a more conservative, bone- and tissue-sparing procedure than total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Similarly, revision of UKA to TKA is generally a simpler procedure than revision of TKA to TKA and can be accomplished with primary TKA components in most cases. The purpose of this study was to review a consecutive series of patients undergoing revision of failed UKA to TKA to determine if etiology is similar to that reported in recent literature and evaluate if the results align more with primary TKA vs revision of TKA to TKA...

BACKGROUND: Arthrofibrosis after TKA is a significant cause of patient dissatisfaction. There is little evidence regarding revision arthroplasty in this patient population. The purpose of this study is to evaluate outcomes after revision TKA for arthrofibrosis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 46 consecutive revision TKAs for arthrofibrosis between 2007 and 2015 with minimum 2-year follow-up. Range of motion (ROM), complication rates, and Knee Society Scores (KSS) were recorded...

Reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament has gained in popularity as a surgical technique to reconcile recurrent lateral patellar instability. This technique has shown success in a variety of settings including with concomitant osseous abnormalities. Despite the general good to excellent results with medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction, a number of technical errors are still commonly made and may result in decreased range of motion, pain, chondrosis, and arthrofibrosis. In a recent study, the importance of knee flexion angle during final fixation of the graft is emphasized...

INTRODUCTION: The etiology of the stiff knee after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is largely unknown, although excessive scar tissue due to arthrofibrosis is an important reason for a limited range of motion (ROM) after this procedure. Persistent limited ROM after TKA results in poor patient-reported outcomes and is increasingly becoming a more prominent reason for TKA revision surgery. METHODS: A narrative review of current literature on manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) after TKA analyzing etiology and risk factors for stiffness after TKA, effectiveness of MUA and what is known about rehabilitation after MUA...

The treatment of sports injuries in the skeletally immature has a unique set of complications. Growth deformity may occur after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction; therefore, skeletal age is used to help guide the choice between physeal sparing and transphyseal techniques. Arthrofibrosis after tibial spine fracture fixation can be reduced by initiating immediate range of motion, and should be treated early and cautiously to avoid iatrogenic fracture. Nonunions of medial epicondyle elbow fractures are more common with nonoperative treatment, but seldom lead to clinical problems outside of certain athletes...

The multiple ligament injured knee presents a challenge with regard to management and treatment. Immediate management of the acute injury requires special attention and thorough examination because knee dislocations have been associated with significant complications. Treatment options range from closed reduction and immobilization to surgical repair and/or reconstruction of the injured ligaments. This article focuses on complications that may result from surgical treatments of the multiple ligament injured knee and ways of prevention...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States. Although complications are rare in ACL surgery, failure to appreciate them can lead to significant patient morbidity in the short and long terms. More common complications in ACL reconstruction include tunnel malposition, infection, tunnel osteolysis, fixation failure, fracture, arthrofibrosis, graft site morbidity, and deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. Tunnel malposition is the most common technical error in ACL reconstruction leading to failure...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most difficult tissues to heal once injured. Ligament regeneration and tendon-bone junction healing are two major goals of ACL reconstruction. This study aimed to investigate the synergistic therapeutic effects of Stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1)-releasing collagen-silk (CSF) scaffold combined with intra-articular injection of ligament-derived stem/progenitor cells (LSPCs) for ACL regeneration and the amelioration in the long-term complication of osteoarthritis (OA)...

Fractures of the tibial spine are estimated to occur in 3 per 100,000 children annually, but account for 2 to 5% of pediatric knee injuries with effusion. Although these fractures were historically associated with bicycle accidents, the surge of organized youth sports in recent decades has brought renewed attention to this injury. While minimally displaced fractures can be treated nonoperatively, several techniques have been described for fixation of displaced or comminuted fractures. Sequelae of this injury can include arthrofibrosis, knee instability, and nonunion...

Normal knee range of motion varies slightly between individuals and measures approximately 0° to -5° of extension to 140° of flexion. A full arc of motion is required for normal gait and knee function. Loss of normal joint range of motion may occur after a traumatic knee injury and may contribute to increased pain, lower functional outcome scores, and decreased patient satisfaction. Although multiple factors may contribute to the development of motion loss, the occurrence of intra-articular scar tissue adhesions, or post-traumatic arthrofibrosis, may limit the patient's knee motion in the early postoperative period...

The current method of measuring arthrofibrosis in live rabbits is critically limited. Specifically, this method involves radioactive fluoroscopy, error-prone goniometric measurements, and static joint angle outcomes that fail to approximate the compliance of tissues surrounding the joint. This study aims to validate a novel method of capturing the compliance of contracted tissues surrounding the joint without the use of fluoroscopy or animal sacrifice. Surgically induced contractures of one-hundred and eight rabbits were measured using the current standard of contracture measurement (a pulley system) as well as a newly designed dynamic load cell (DLC) device...

There is a feeling among knee surgeons that operating on an acute anterior cruciate ligament injury will increase the incidence of arthrofibrosis. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis of 7 recent articles compared early versus delayed anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The conclusions were that the clinical and stability results were comparable in both groups.

BACKGROUND: Arthrofibrosis in the suprapatellar pouch and anterior interval can develop after knee injury or surgery, resulting in anterior knee pain. These adhesions have not been biomechanically characterized. METHODS: The biomechanical effects of adhesions in the suprapatellar pouch and anterior interval during simulated quadriceps muscle contraction from 0 to 90° of knee flexion were assessed. Adhesions of the suprapatellar pouch and anterior interval were hypothesized to alter the patellofemoral contact biomechanics and increase the patellofemoral contact force compared to no adhesions...
