We conducted a prospective randomised study of anatomical single-bundle (A-SB group) versus double-bundle (A-DB group) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using the hamstrings tendons. Twenty patients with unilateral ACL deficiency were randomised into two groups. We created the bone tunnels at the position of the original insertion of the anteromedial ...

All-inside meniscal repairs have gained popularity in the past few years. However, only a few prospective, randomized clinical studies have been done to compare different all-inside meniscal repair techniques. Meniscal repair with bioabsorbable meniscal screws and arrows results in similar clinical outcome on short-term follow-up. Randomized controlled trial; Level of ...

Reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament has traditionally been performed using an arthroscopically assisted single-bundle transtibial technique. Unfortunately, clinical studies evaluating this procedure are rare. In addition, there are no pooled analyses evaluating the effectiveness of this procedure for isolated posterior cruciate ligament tears. Patients who undergo arthroscopically assisted, single-bundle, ...

This study tested the hypothesis that serial dilation of the tibial tunnel could provide a stronger anchorage of the graft-fixation-device complex compared to traditional extraction drilling. Forty patients (22 men and 18 women) undergoing ACL reconstruction were randomized to either extraction drilling (group ED) or compaction by serial dilation (group ...
Sutherland A G - - 2010
We identified a series of 128 patients who had unilateral open reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) by a single surgeon between 1993 and 2000. In all, 79 patients were reviewed clinically and radiologically eight to 15 years after surgery. Assessment included measurement of the Lysholm and Tegner scores, ...

After the development and biomechanical validation of an anatomical fibular collateral ligament reconstruction using a semitendinosus graft, this technique has subsequently been applied clinically. An anatomical reconstruction of a grade III fibular collateral ligament tear using a semitendinosus graft restores the knee to near-normal lateral compartment stability and results in ...

Previous epidemiological studies revealed that anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries were more frequently seen in female athletes than in male athletes. To elucidate the pathogenetic roles of estrogen in ACL ruptures, the elasticity of ACL tissue was measured using a scanning acoustic microscope (SAM) in an estrogen-controlled animal model. A ...

Knee meniscectomy is the most common procedure performed by orthopaedic surgeons. While it is generally believed that loss of meniscal tissue leads to osteoarthritis and poor knee function, many variables may significantly influence this outcome. Through literature search engines including PubMed and Ovid, 4 randomized controlled trials, 2 prospective cohorts, ...

Fifty-one patients were operated with reconstruction for an isolated PCL injury from 1997 to 2005. Forty-three of these patients were followed during a median period of 48 months (17-109). Median time from injury to surgery was 18 months (2-368). Five patients were operated within the first 6 months after the ...

The influence of standard meniscus treatment strategies regarding osteoarthritic progress, function, and sports activity has not been estimated in a direct long-term comparison. Meniscal repair compared with partial meniscectomy (partial meniscal resection) decreases osteoarthritic changes and reduces the effect on sports activity in the long-term follow-up. Cohort study; Level of ...

Mucoid degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a little-known entity. The clinical presentation is one of posterior pain with limited flexion. Its interstitial nature within the ACL structure contrasts with synovial cyst of the ACL. Arthroscopic treatment may include ACL resection, which raises the questions about the harmlessness ...

The thrust of meniscal surgery has now moved toward meniscal preservation. Repair is particularly indicated on the lateral side where the sequelae of resection are severe even in an older patient population. The aim of this study was to analyze the success of all-inside meniscus repairs in a carefully selected ...

Precise tunnel positioning is crucial for success in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The use of intra-operative fluoroscopy has been shown to improve the accuracy of tunnel placement. Although radiation exposure is a concern, we lack information on the radiation risk to patients undergoing fluoroscopically-assisted ACL reconstruction with a standard ...

During the past decade, the use of biodegradable implants in anterior cruciate ligament surgery has increased. Poly-L-lactide acid (PLLA) interference screws would render the same clinical results but greater tunnel enlargement than metal screws 8 years after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using hamstring tendon (semitendinosus/gracilis) autografts. Randomized controlled trial; Level ...

This study examined whether or not conservative treatment of an acutely injured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) could be successful in a select group of patients. Routine ACL reconstruction surgery in all acute ACL-injured patients should be avoided. We hypothesize that acutely injured ACL with mild instability at the initial physical ...

To (1) evaluate radiographic changes associated with osteoarthrosis (OA) before and after tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) and (2) determine if these changes are indicative of limb function as determined by kinetic gait analysis. Prospective clinical study. Dogs (n=35) with cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) deficient stifles (38). Variables recorded were: complete ...
Pernin Jerome - - 2010
Many studies have reported successful outcomes 10 to 15 years after ACL reconstruction. However, few authors report results at ultra long-term follow-up (more than 20 years of follow-up). The aim of this study was to determine how the status of the medial meniscus and the medial compartment articular cartilage observed ...

Isolated posterolateral corner (PLC) tears are relatively rare events. Various surgical techniques to treat posterolateral knee instability have been described; because surgical results are linked to cruciate reconstructions it has been difficult to date to define whether one surgical procedure has better prognosis than another. The goal of this study ...

The 2-stage Nagata method for auricular reconstruction in patients with microtia is a widely accepted technique. We have modified this technique into a single-stage procedure for the reconstruction of acquired segmental auricular defects. A prospective analysis was made of the senior author's first 20 consecutive cases over a 4-year period ...
