Objectives: To compare the effect of femoral bone tunnel configuration on tendon-bone healing in an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction animal model. Methods: Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using the plantaris tendon as graft material was performed on both knees of 24 rabbits (48 knees) to mimic ACL reconstruction by two different suspensory fixation devices for graft fixation. For the adjustable fixation device model (Socket group; group S), a 5 mm deep socket was created in the lateral femoral condyle (LFC) of the right knee...

Objectives: In this study, we compared the pain behaviour and osteoarthritis (OA) progression between anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT) and osteochondral injury in surgically-induced OA rat models. Methods: OA was induced in the knee joints of male Wistar rats using transection of the ACL or induction of osteochondral injury. Changes in the percentage of high limb weight distribution (%HLWD) on the operated hind limb were used to determine the pain behaviour in these models...

INTRODUCTION: The TLS® technique for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has the advantages of using only one hamstring tendon (semitendinosus) by preparing a short graft secured with screws and braided strips. The theoretical pitfall of this technique is that the graft length is determined arbitrarily. Thus, if the blind tunnels are not long enough, it will be impossible to tension the graft properly upon fixation. The primary objective of this study was to determine the postoperative side-to-side difference in knee laxity...

Comparing to primary surgery, revision ACL reconstruction is more technically demanding and has a higher failure rate. Theoretically, rehabilitation can improve knee function after ACL reconstruction surgery. This study aimed to compare knee stability, strength, and function between primary and revision ACL reconstructed knees. 40 primary and 40 revision ACL reconstruction surgeries were included between April 2013 and May 2016. Patients with revision surgery had a higher anteroposterior translation comparing those with primary reconstruction (median laxity, 2...

OBJECTIVE: With the goal to explore a new approach to treat the early degenerative lesions of hyaline cartilage, we implanted in a porcine OA model a collagen-based scaffold containing chondroprogenitor cells derived from human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hBM-MSCs). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Porcine knee joints were subjected to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) transection to surgically induce OA. After 4 months, the time necessary for the development of cartilage surface damage, animals were treated either with trephination bone plug wrapped with the chondroprogenic hBM-MSCs-embedded collagen scaffold or microfractures alone...

The presentation and clinical course of mucoid degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament (MD-ACL) are poorly documented within the literature. Subsequently, it is under-diagnosed and the optimal management strategy remains ill-defined. Here, we characterize the syndrome associated with MD-ACL and compare the natural clinical course with the outcomes of arthroscopic management. Thirty-one patients with radiological features of MD-ACL over a 2-year period had their clinical notes retrospectively reviewed...

CASE DESCRIPTION: A 17-year-old male post anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction complained of the inability to extend his great toe immediately following surgery. BACKGROUND: Neurological injuries following knee arthroscopy have been reported to occur between 0.6%-2.5%. The most commonly injured nerves are the saphenous and common fibular nerve (CFN). Great toe-drop secondary to isolated denervation of the extensor hallucis longus (EHL), has only been reported one time in the literature...

Introduction: Post-operative infection is a dreadful complication of ACL reconstruction with gray zone over management guidelines. We aimed to establish commonest etiology, assess incidence of infection and effect on outcome, individually for single and double bundle ACL reconstruction techniques, so as to formulate appropriate management guidelines. Methods: Our prospective study involved 1152 patients operated for ACL reconstruction (437- DBACL, 715- SBACL) from 2010-2013...

Background: Surgical techniques of ACL reconstruction (ACLR) have evolved over the past three decades along with debate regarding timing of reconstruction. It was a widespread belief that the timing of surgery was an important factor in determining the resulting stiffness after ACLR. Delayed rather than early reconstruction of the ACL is the current recommended treatment since it is thought to give a better functional outcome. However, there is no consensus in the literature regarding the optimal time of surgical intervention...

Purpose: Meniscal surgery is one of the most performed orthopaedic procedures. Because of its chondroprotective properties, meniscal repair should be attempted whenever possible. Several techniques are described in literature, e.g. all-inside repair using FasT-Fix System from Smith & Nephew. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome at a minimum of 12 years following meniscal repair using FasT-Fix System. Materials and Methods: Patients who underwent meniscal repair using FasT-Fix System in the time from 2001 to 2003 were analyzed...

The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the six ligaments in the human knee joint that provides stability during articulations. It is relatively prone to acute and chronic injuries as compared to other ligaments. Repair and self-healing of an injured anterior cruciate ligament are time-consuming processes. For personnel resuming an active sports life, surgical repair or replacement is essential. Untreated anterior cruciate ligament tear results frequently in osteoarthritis. Therefore, understanding of the biomechanics of injury and properties of the native ligament is crucial...

PURPOSE: Graft choice for primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R) is debated, with considerable controversy and variability among surgeons. Autograft tendons are actually the most used grafts for primary surgery; however, allografts have been used in greater frequency for both primary and revision ACL surgery over the past decade. Given the great debate on the use of allografts in ACL-R, the "Allografts for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction" consensus statement was developed among orthopedic surgeons and members of SIGASCOT (Società Italiana del Ginocchio, Artroscopia, Sport, Cartilagine, Tecnologie Ortopediche), with extensive experience in ACL-R, to investigate their habits in the use of allograft in different clinical situations...

PURPOSE: Dynamic intraligamentary stabilization (DIS) is a primary repair technique for acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. For internal bracing of the sutured ACL, a metal spring with 8 mm maximum length change is preloaded with 60-80 N and fixed to a high-strength polyethylene braid. The bulky tibial hardware results in bone loss and may cause local discomfort with the necessity of hardware removal. The technique has been previously investigated biomechanically; however, the amount of spring shortening during movement of the knee joint is unknown...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is known to be one of the most common knee joint injuries. ACL reconstruction can be similar to the native ACL in respect of graft morphology, tension, position, and orientation. ACL reconstruction can be applied with different surgery techniques, graft and fixation devices, and rehabilitation as ACL reconstruction is just as important as surgery. Although commonly known as a sports injury, ACL injuries are increasingly seen in the general population. The aim of this study was to investigate the trends in ACL injury treatment in the last decade especially the graft choice...
