The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of a pair of cruciate ligaments in the human knee and is critical for knee stability, as it limits anterior tibial translation on the femur, restrains rotation and resists varus and valgus joint forces. The present study aimed to assess the effect of double-bundle revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in improving the subjective and objective functions and re-introducing patients to physical activity after primary ACL reconstruction had failed. A total of 34 patients who underwent double-bundle ACL revision surgeries were included in the present retrospective study...

Background: Injury to the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve (IPBSN) is common after arthroscopic ACL reconstruction with hamstring tendon autograft, as reported in up to 88% of the cases. Due to close relationship between the IPBSN with pes anserine tendons insertion skin incision may sever IPBSN while harvesting gracillis and semitendinous tendons. As the IPBSN course at the anterior of knee is oblique, we hypothesized a parallel skin incision with nerve passage may decrease nerve injury...

BACKGROUND: According to some authors, the indication of an arthroplasty maintaining the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) demands adequate structural preservation and proprioceptive function of this ligament. The nervous fibers contained in the synovial neurovascular bundle (NVB) around the PCL are involved in proprioception. A study evaluating the grade of PCL and NVB degeneration by using clinical, radiological, and perioperative parameters in knee arthritis patients, in theory, could help surgeons in the decision of preserving or not preserving the PCL in a particular patient...

PURPOSE: A better understanding of patient characteristics and the way common concomitant injuries affect the recovery of muscle function after surgery should help providers to treat patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. The aim of this study was to determine whether patient characteristics, concomitant injuries and graft choice at ACL reconstruction were associated with symmetrical knee muscle function at one year. The hypothesis was that the presence of concomitant injuries would negatively influence the opportunity to achieve symmetrical knee function at the one-year follow-up...

PURPOSE: Studies on dynamic intraligamentary stabilization (DIS) of acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures reported failure rates similar to those of conventional ACL reconstruction. This study aimed to determine whether surgeon experience with DIS is associated with revision rates or patient-reported outcomes. The hypothesis was that more experienced surgeons achieved better outcomes following DIS due to substantial learning curve. METHODS: The authors prospectively enrolled 110 consecutive patients that underwent DIS and evaluated them at a minimum of 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are associated with the development of knee osteoarthritis despite ACL reconstruction surgery. However, little evidence is available to determine which patients will develop symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. PURPOSE: To determine if preoperative outcome measures-KOOS (Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score) and SF-36 (36-item Short Form Health Survey)-were associated with the development of a symptomatic knee 7 years after ACL reconstruction...

Brendan R Southam, Angelo J Colosimo, Brian Grawe
Primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions (ACLRs) are being performed with increasing frequency. While many of these will have successful outcomes, failures will occur in a subset of patients who will require revision ACLRs. As such, the number of revision procedures will continue to rise as well. While many reviews have focused on factors that commonly contribute to failure of primary ACLR, including graft choice, patient factors, early return to sport, and technical errors, this review focused on several factors that have received less attention in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction can effectively return athletes to the playing field, but they are still at risk of developing posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). No studies have used multivariable analysis to evaluate the predictors of radiographic PTOA in the lateral compartment of the knee at short-term follow-up after ACL reconstruction. PURPOSE: To determine the predictors of radiographic joint space narrowing in the lateral compartment 2 to 3 years after ACL reconstruction in a young, active cohort...

Mark D Porter, Bruce Shadbolt, Samantha Pomroy
BACKGROUND: Iliotibial band (ITB) tenodesis improves stability and functional outcomes when added to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Its precise indications are unknown. Persistence of the pivot shift after revision ACL reconstruction may be one indication. HYPOTHESIS: The addition of ITB tenodesis for a persistent pivot shift after revision ACL reconstruction will improve stability and activity levels. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2...

Background: Anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL) are associated with meniscal lesions, that could involve the posterior horn of the medial meniscus (PHMM). A variety of techniques has been proposed to better visualise the postero-medial (PM) compartment. The aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of longitudinal tears of peripheral attachment of the PHMM during arthroscopic ACL reconstruction, and to describe a diagnostic algorithm. Methods: 115 patients who underwent arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were enrolled for the study...

INTRODUCTION: Accurate anatomic graft tunnel positioning is essential for the successful application of anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The accurate insertion of the tibial tunnel (TT) remains challenging. Here, we explored a novel strategy of patient-specific drill template (PDT) for the placement of TT in ACL reconstruction and assessed its efficacy and accuracy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: TT placement was randomized and performed by use of the PDT technique in 40 patients (PDT group) and the conventional arthroscopic technique in 38 patients (Arthroscopic group)...

Patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture are 2X as likely to develop post traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). Annually, there are ∼900,000 knee injuries in the US, which account for ∼12% of all OA cases. PTOA leads to reduced physical activity, deconditioning of the musculoskeletal system and in severe cases, requires joint replacement to restore function. Therefore, treatments that would prevent cartilage degradation post injury would provide attractive alternatives to surgery. Sclerostin (Sost), a Wnt antagonist and a potent negative regulator of bone formation has recently been implicated in regulating chondrocyte function in osteoarthritis (OA)...

Background: Chinese ethnicity is associated with the presence of knee osteoarthritis. This raises the possibility that it may similarly be associated with concomitant meniscus and cartilage injuries in patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. There are currently no published data on the effect of Chinese ethnicity in this regard. Purpose: The primary aim was to determine whether Chinese ethnicity is associated with concomitant intra-articular injuries in patients with ACL tears and to verify the correlation of age, sex, body mass index, mechanism of injury, cause of injury, and presence of bone contusions on magnetic resonance imaging with such injuries...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, using hamstring auto-graft is a common surgical procedure, which often leads to persistent hamstring muscle-strength deficiency and reduced function. The purpose of this randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to investigate the effect of a combined, progressive, strength and neuromuscular exercise intervention on knee muscle strength, functional capacity and hamstring muscle-tendon morphology in ACL-reconstructed patients with persistent hamstring muscle-strength deficiency compared with controls...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear can leads to osteoarthritis (OA). However, parathyroid hormone (PTH) (1-34) was found to alleviate OA progression in a papain-induced OA model. Autophagy is a protective mechanism in normal cartilage, and its aging-related loss is linked with chondrocyte death and OA. Thus, we examined the roles of autophagy in PTH treatment on OA after ACL transection (ACLT). Thirty-six rats were randomized into three groups: control group, ACLT-induced OA (ACLT-OA) group, and OA with intra-articular PTH (1-34) treatment group...
