Authors:

Robert S Dean, David H Kahat, Nathan R Graden, Nicholas N DePhillipo,1, Robert F LaPrade

Abstract:

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are enzymes that are elevated during states of inflammation and have specifically been linked to cartilage, tendon and bone pathologies. Concentrations of these enzymes fluctuate naturally […]

Single-Stage Multiple-Ligament Knee Reconstructions for Sports-Related Injuries: Outcomes in 194 Patients


Background:

Outcomes after sports-related multiple-ligament knee reconstructions are limited.

Purpose:

To evaluate outcomes after single-stage surgical treatment of sports-related multiple-ligament knee injuries and to compare outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)–based and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)–based multiple-ligament knee reconstructions.

Study Design:

Case series; Level of evidence, 4.

Methods:

Skeletally mature patients with at least 2 major knee ligaments torn during a […]

Percutaneous Lengthening of a Regenerated Semitendinosus Tendon for Medial Hamstring Snapping


2019 Arthroscopy Journal

Snapping syndromes are caused by 2 adjacent anatomic structures having a frictional catching, which may be associated with an audible pop. At the knee, they may have an intra- or extra-articular origin. It is imperative to understand the etiology of the snapping to avoid unnecessary surgery.

Snapping symptoms affect the lateral aspect of […]

Editorial Commentary: Small Incisions Can Make Big Mistakes: Knee Lateral Collateral Ligament Reconstruction Is All About the Anatomy!

2018 Arthroscopy Journal

It is becoming increasingly recognized that isolated lateral collateral ligament (LCL) tears are more common than have been previously recognized and that anatomic-based LCL reconstructions have the best outcomes. Although it was believed that posterolateral corner injuries were often missed or mistreated and were given the pneumonic […]

The Role of Blood Flow Restriction Therapy Following Knee Surgery: Expert Opinion

2018 Arthroscopy Journal

Blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy is becoming increasingly popular in musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation. In particular, this form of therapy is being utilized more often in the postoperative setting following knee surgery, including anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. BFR therapy provides patients and clinicians an alternative treatment option to […]

Osteoarticular Allograft Transplantation of the Trochlear Groove for Trochlear Dysplasia

Chronic patellar instability after a primary dislocation event is common, and reasons for recurrent dislocations are multifactorial . Risk factors include trochlear dysplasia, insufficiencies in the medial stabilizing retinacular structures, increased tibial tubercle-to-trochlear groove (TT- TG) distance, and patella alta. Trochlear dysplasia reportedly is present in 85% of patients […]

Symptomatic Focal Knee Chondral Injuries in National Football League Combine Players Are Associated With Poorer Performance and Less Volume of Play

Purpose: To (1) describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) characteristics of knee chondral injuries identified at the National Football League (NFL) Combine and (2) assess in-game performance of prospective NFL players with previously untreated knee chondral injuries and compare it with matched controls.

Methods: All players with knee chondral in- […]

Multiligament Knee Injuries in Older Adolescents: A 2-Year Minimum Follow-up Study

OJSM 2017

Background: Multiligament knee injuries cause significant functional impairment. Adults undergoing anatomic reconstruction of multiligament knee injuries have excellent outcomes postoperatively. However, less is known about the outcomes in adolescent patients following multiligament reconstruction.

Purpose/Hypothesis: We aimed to assess patient outcomes and failure rates following unstaged multiligament reconstruction in an […]

Do Tibial Plateau Fractures Worsen Outcomes of Knee Ligament Injuries?

2017 AJSM

Tibial plateau fractures account for approximately 1% of all fractures; however, these fractures can pose a surgical challenge when occurring concomitantly with ligament injuries. Delamarter first described the patterns of ligament injuries associated with tibial plateau fractures, reporting that lateral tibial plateau fractures most commonly occurred with medial […]
