BACKGROUND: The optimal treatment for middle-aged patients with knee pain and meniscal lesions has been extensively debated. Most previous studies have revealed only short-term beneficial results of knee arthroscopic surgery. The authors have previously shown a positive benefit of knee arthroscopic surgery and an exercise program after 1 year when compared with an exercise program alone. PURPOSE: To evaluate if knee arthroscopic surgery combined with an exercise program provided an additional long-term benefit after 3 years compared with an exercise program alone in middle-aged patients with meniscal symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is becoming increasingly common as the number of primary ACLR cases continues to rise. Despite this, there are limited data on the outcomes of revision ACLR and even less information specifically addressing the differences in 1-stage revision reconstruction versus those performed in a 2-stage fashion after primary reconstruction. PURPOSE: To compare the outcomes, patient satisfaction, and failure rates of 1-stage versus 2-stage revision ACLR...

BACKGROUND: Knee osteotomies are proven treatment options, especially in younger patients with unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis, for certain cases of chronic knee instability, or as concomitant treatment for meniscal repair or transplantation surgery. Presumably, these patients wish to stay active. Data on whether these patients return to sport (RTS) activities and return to work (RTW) are scarce. OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to systematically review (1) the extent to which patients can RTS and RTW after knee osteotomy and (2) the time to RTS and RTW...

The Multicenter Orthopaedic Outcomes Network (MOON) is an NIH-funded prospective, longitudinal cohort of over 3500 patients who have undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) by 14 sports medicine surgeons at 7 academic medical centers. Patient reported outcome questionnaires (PRO's) are completed at baseline and multiple timepoints after surgery, and a nested cohort of patients return for radiographs to assess the development of joint space changes. We review the risk factors for worse patient reported outcomes, the predictors of clinically significant symptoms of post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA), and the factors associated with more radiographic joint space narrowing...

BACKGROUND: Implantation of the Actifit(®) polyurethane meniscal scaffold in patients who have pain after partial meniscectomy provides short-term pain relief and better function. But there is a lack of information about medium-term outcomes. The objective of this longitudinal study was to evaluate the MRI and functional outcomes after a minimum follow-up of 5 years. It was hypothesized that the results are stable over time. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifteen consecutive patients (8 men, 7 women; mean age 30 years, range 19-47, mean BMI 25) were enrolled in the study between February 2008 and January 2011...

BACKGROUND: Limited evidence exists for meniscal repair outcomes in a multiligament reconstruction setting. Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to assess outcomes and failure rates of meniscal repair in patients who underwent multiligament reconstruction compared with patients who underwent multiligament reconstruction but lacked meniscal tears. The authors hypothesized that the outcomes of meniscal repair associated with concomitant multiligament reconstruction would significantly improve from preoperatively to postoperatively at a minimum of 2 years after the index surgery...

Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate the chondroprotective effect of chemically decellularized meniscal allografts transplanted into the knee joints of adult merino sheep. Methods Lateral sheep meniscal allografts were chemically processed by a multistep method to yield acellular, sterile grafts. The grafts were transplanted into the knee joints of sheep that were treated by lateral meniscectomy. Joints treated by meniscectomy only and untreated joints served as controls. The joints were analyzed morphologically 6 and 26 weeks after surgery by the macroscopical and histological OARSI (Osteoarthritis Research Society International) score...

PURPOSE: Ramp lesions are common in ACL deficient knees. Their diagnosis is difficult and, therefore, they may be underestimated. So far, no study analyzed their prevalence in a pediatric population. The diagnosis of these Ramp lesions is of major clinical relevance because of a frequent misestimating and technic difficulties. Ramp lesions might be associated with residual knee pain and instability after ACL reconstruction. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of ramp lesions explored through a systematic intercondylar and posteromedial arthroscopic approach during an ACL reconstruction in a pediatric and adolescent population...

PURPOSE: The role of lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LEAT) as an augment to primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) remains controversial. However, concerns exist regarding the risk of development of osteoarthritis due to over constraint of the knee. To systematically review the literature to analyse the long-term incidence of osteoarthritis in patients who had an LEAT performed in isolation or in combination with intra-articular ACLR for the treatment of ACL deficiency...

Meniscus injury and treatment occurred with the majority of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions (ACLR) in the multicenter orthopaedic outcomes (MOON) cohort. We describe the patient reported outcomes, radiographic outcomes and predictors of pain from meniscus injuries and treatment in the setting of ACLR. Patient reported outcomes improve significantly following meniscus repair with ACLR, but differences exist based on the meniscus injury laterally (medial or lateral). Patients undergoing medial meniscus repair have worse patient-reported outcomes and more pain compared to those with uninjured menisci...

CASE DESCRIPTION A 6.8-year-old neutered male Labrador Retriever-Poodle mix was evaluated because of continued left pelvic limb lameness unresponsive to conservative management 1 year after undergoing tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO). CLINICAL FINDINGS A jerking lateral movement of the left stifle joint was detected during walking. Orthopedic examination revealed a pivot-shift phenomenon (PSP). Palpation elicited no signs of discomfort over the TPLO plate or caudomedial aspect of the stifle joint. Radiography revealed complete bone fusion at the osteotomy site and only mild joint effusion...
