Mostafa Mahmoud, Motaz Elian, Abdalah Seif Elnasr
Injuries to flexor tendons in zone I has always been challenging during repair. Over the time several techniques were developed and modified to achieve the highest repair strength and thus the best functional outcome. These techniques vary from pull-out sutures with internal and external fixation to the use of bone anchors. All techniques were accompanied with advantages and disadvantages as well as postoperative morbidities related to certain techniques. In the present technique we introduce a subperiosteal pull-out suturing technique...

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...

Engineered tendon grafts offer a promising alternative for grafting during the reconstruction of complex tendon tears. The tissue-engineered tendon substitutes have the advantage of increased biosafety and the option to customize their biochemical and biophysical properties to promote tendon regeneration. In this study, we developed a novel centrifugal melt electrospinning (CME) technique, with the goal of optimizing the fabrication parameters to generate fibrous scaffolds for tendon tissue engineering. The effects of CME processing parameters, including rotational speed, voltage, and temperature, on fiber properties (i...

Tendons have limited regenerative capacity due to their low cellularity and hypovascular nature, which results in poor clinical outcomes of presently used therapies. As tendon injuries are often observed in active adults, it poses an increasing socio-economic burden on healthcare systems. Currently, suture threads are used during surgical repair to anchor the tissue graft or to connect injured ends. Here, we created composite suture threads coated with a layer of cell-laden hydrogel that can be used for bridging the injured tissue aiming at tendon regeneration...

Jae Yong Park, Chenyu Wang, Hee Dong Kim, Hyong Nyun Kim
BACKGROUND: Flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon rupture is a challenging injury to lead with clawing of the great toe when the FHL tendon is repaired too tight. When the diagnosis is delayed, the tendon ends may not be opposable because of contracture or poor tendon tissue. METHODS: A technique to reconstruct FHL tendon rupture without a free tendon graft is described. A split tendon lengthening is performed at the midfoot around the knot of Henry. Ankle block anesthesia is used to allow the patient's active movement of the interphalangeal (IP) joint to determine the appropriate length of the reconstructed tendon for maintaining balance and preventing the tendon from being too tight or too loose...

Giant-cell tumour of the tendon sheath (GCTTS) is a soft tissue tumour that may invade bone, causing an intrinsic osseous lesion or instability on radiographs. A case with scaphoid instability caused by a histologically-confirmed neighbouring GCTTS has rarely been described in the literature. No definite and radical method is available for the treatment of GCTTS. This report describes an unusual case of a 22-year-old woman who previously experienced a GCTTS in her right elbow, which was removed 10 years earlier...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with a quadrupled semitendinosus (ST4) graft is an evolution of the standard technique with 2 hamstring tendons (semitendinosus + gracilis [STG]). However, there is no published comparison of how well these 2 types of hamstring grafts are incorporated into the bone tunnels. Because the ST4 graft is shorter, there is less graft material inside the tunnels. PURPOSE: To use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to compare graft incorporation in the tibial bone tunnels 1 year after ACL reconstruction with either an STG graft or ST4 graft...
