BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare the clinical performance and complications between an ACL reconstruction with a remnant-preserving single-bundle technique and a standard single-bundle technique. METHODS: A search was performed of RCTs comparing the clinical outcomes and complications of ACL reconstruction with remnant-preserving and standard single-bundle techniques during October 2014. Relevant data were extracted and CONSORT was used to assess the methodological quality...

Highly active anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-injured patients are usually recommended surgical treatment as the primary intervention. The objective of this study was to compare the functional outcome in a cohort of individuals after non-operative treatment to individuals after surgical treatment at a 1-year follow-up. One hundred and twenty-five subjects with a mean age of 27.2 years (+/-8.6 years), and participating in level I or II activities were included. Baseline and 1-year follow-up examination included four single-legged hop tests, IKDC 2000, KOS-ADLS, KT-1000 knee arthrometer measurement, VAS, episodes of giving way, and activity level...

The number of ACL injuries noted during diagnostic arthroscopy is steadily increasing. This has lead us to assess an optimal method for ACL reconstruction. 563 patients with post-trauma disfunction of the knee were treated at LORO between january 2000 and december 2001. In this group 79 cases of incomplete ACL injuries and 43 complete ACL injuries were noted. 17 arthroscopic ACL reconstructions were performed, using semitendinous and gracilis tendons. After surgery patients underwent a rehabilitation protocol and were followed-up on a regular basis...

We performed combined internal and external anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with the iliotibial band autograft in 169 consecutive patients with chronic ACL insufficiency who were followed up for 24-61 months. Of these, 155 (91%) agreed to an additional independent observer follow-up after 24-92 months. Eight patients (5%) had sustained a rerupture/elongation of the graft and were operated on again; nine (6%) had sustained a tear of the contralateral ACL. Knee function and activity increased after the reconstruction...

OBJECTIVE: Correct placement of tunnels for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is of prime importance for the clinical outcome of the patient. In this study, the possibility of using MRI to document tunnel placement and provide a more comprehensive report following ACL reconstruction was explored at no additional cost in patients scheduled for routine knee MRI DESIGN AND PATIENTS: One year after ACL reconstruction, 45 patients underwent clinical examination (IKCD score), radiographic examination, and MRI using a 1...
