Almost all athletes who have suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury expect a full return to sports at the same pre-injury level after ACL reconstruction (ACLR). Detailed patient information on the reasonable outcomes of the surgery may be essential to improve patient satisfaction.Pre-operative rehabilitation before ACLR should be considered as an addition to the standard of care to maximise functional outcomes after ACLR.We propose an optimised criterion-based rehabilitation programme within a biopsychosocial framework...

PURPOSE: To determine if posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and intercondylar notch (IN) morphometries and volumetrics act as risk factors for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. METHODS: A prospective case-controlled magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study was conducted with subjects presenting noncontact knee injuries. Exclusion criteria were previous surgery, PCL tear, osteoarthritis, tumors, or infectious and inflammatory conditions. All participants underwent a flexed-knee 3-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to uniformly straighten PCL...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine whether synovial fluid (SF) biomarkers can predict the progression of articular cartilage damage as determined by arthroscopic evaluation during and after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. METHODS: Arthroscopic assessment of articular cartilage damage was performed twice in 62 patients, first during ACL reconstruction and then approximately 2 years later during implant removal for ligament fixation. SF levels of the collagenase-generated cleavage neoepitope of type II collagen (C2C) and proteoglycan glycosaminoglycans keratan sulfate (KS), chondroitin-4-sulfate (Δdi-C4S), and chondroitin-6-sulfate (Δdi-C6S) were measured at ACL reconstruction...

PURPOSE: To compare the effectiveness and safety of periarticular injection (PI) with those of femoral nerve block (FNB) after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. METHODS: A total of 129 patients scheduled for ACL reconstruction were randomly assigned to receive PI or FNB. Other perioperative interventions were identical for all patients. The primary outcome was the postoperative pain score 24 hours after surgery, which was measured using a 100-mm visual analog scale (VAS)...

We introduced several variables in an animal model of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction to determine the best parameters for surgery in humans. We divided 130 LYD pigs into two groups depending on whether the femoral tunnel goes through the medial tibial tunnel or through the medial fossa of the knee joint. Each subgroup was further divided. Four weeks after surgery the knee specimens were examined for passive flexion and extension test. No group showed a creep effect. In the biomechanical tests, we recorded maximal strength, maximum load, and stiffness parameters...

PURPOSE: Although anatomical and independent drilling techniques, such as transportal (TP) technique, have become more popular in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, the TP technique has not been shown to yield superior clinical or functional outcomes compared to the transtibial (TT) technique. The aim of the current meta-analysis was to compare clinical outcomes of the TP and TT techniques, as determined by patient-reported outcome scores and knee joint laxity tests. It was hypothesized that the TP and TT techniques of ACL reconstruction would yield similar patient-reported functional outcomes and similar results on knee joint laxity tests...

BACKGROUND: Although there are several causes of unplanned return to the operating room (RTOR) following pediatric anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR), prior outcomes studies focus primarily on the risk of graft failure. We sought to comprehensively describe indications for RTOR in pediatric primary ACLR patients, estimate associated rates of RTOR, and assess the impact of concomitant meniscal procedures on these rates. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study considered patients who underwent primary ACLR at an urban, pediatric tertiary care hospital between 2013 and 2015...

PURPOSE: To compare acute ACL reconstruction (ACLR) within 8 days of injury with delayed reconstruction after normalized range of motion (ROM), 6-10 weeks after injury. It was hypothesized that acute ACL reconstruction with modern techniques is safe and can be beneficial in terms of patient-reported outcomes and range of motion. METHODS: Sample size calculation indicated 64 patients would be required to find a 5° difference in ROM at 3 months. Seventy patients with high recreational activity level, Tegner level 6 or more, were randomized to acute (within 8 days) or delayed (6-10 weeks) ACLR between 2006 and 2013...

REVIEW
Thomas K Miller
Patients who present for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) revision with a high-grade pivot shift at the time of an index ACL revision procedure and subsequent reconstruction failure or a high-grade pivot shift at revision surgery, patients with generalized joint laxity, and those requiring softs tissue grafts should be considered candidates for lateral tenodesis to supplement intraarticular graft revision. Although there is no consensus regarding the optimal lateral tenodesis technique, due to the tibial positioning associated with tensioning and fixation of extra-articular procedures, a lateral tenodesis should not be used in patients with posterolateral corner injuries or lateral compartment articular disease...

REVIEW
Wojciech Satora, Aleksandra Królikowska, Andrzej Czamara, Paweł Reichert
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is cited as the most frequently injured ligament in the knee. The standard treatment of ACL injury remains ligament reconstruction followed by a postoperative physiotherapeutic procedure. During the reconstruction, the torn ligament can be replaced with an autograft or an allograft. A synthetic ligament is also one of the available graft options. Synthetic grafts in ruptured ACL treatment have been used as scaffolds, stents, or prostheses. The story of using synthetic materials in ACL deficient knee treatment started in the beginning of the 20th century with the usage of silk and silver fibers...

Background: Recent evidence shows a delayed return to sport in children and delayed quadriceps recovery in both adults and children who have undergone anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with concomitant femoral nerve blockade (FNB) compared with those who had no blockade. We evaluated the use of adductor canal blockade (ACB), as an alternative to FNB, at the time of ACL reconstruction. Hypothesis: Patients who receive ACB will have greater isokinetic strength at 6 months postoperative compared with patients who receive FNB at the time of ACL reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: The presence of a positive pivot shift after surgical repair of the ACL is considered an important indicator of a failed reconstruction. The ability to predict the result of a pivot shift test after an ACL reconstruction using variables that can be measured prior to surgery could provide an indication of which patients may be at-risk of a poor surgical outcome.The purpose of this study was to determine whether structural characteristics of the femur and tibia, measured using plain radiographs, were associated with the result of the pivot shift test in unilateral ACL reconstructed patients...

PURPOSE: To compare the results of bone-patellar tendon-bone graft (BPTB), semitendinosus-gracilis graft with preserved insertions (STGPI) and semitendinosus-gracilis-free graft (STGF) in terms of graft failure, objective mechanical stability, functional outcome, and return to sports in elite and recreational sports persons. It was hypothesized that the STGPI graft provided superior outcome as compared to the other two grafts. METHODS: Two hundred and forty-nine elite and recreational players who underwent ACL reconstruction surgery, with BPTB graft (N = 80), STGPI graft (N = 85), and STGF graft (N = 84) with a minimum follow-up of 2 years, were assessed using clinical tests, knee arthrometer (KT 1000™), single-leg hop test, Lysholm knee score, Tegner's activity scale, and return to sports...

PURPOSE: To clarify the relationship between anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) remnant tissue at the time of surgery and preoperative evaluation of ACL-injured knee. METHODS: A total of 123 patients were enrolled and classified into four groups based on the classification of ACL remnant tissue. To quantify the signal-noise quotient (SNQ), five regions of interest (ROIs), such as tibial, mid, femoral ACL remnant, tendon of quadriceps femoris to normalize the signal intensity of ACL remnant tissue, and background measurements, were measured...
