Combined Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction and Lateral Extra-Articular Tenodesis


Abstract

Anterolateral rotational instability may persist after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction for a variety of reasons including damage to lateral or posterolateral structures, injury to the meniscus, disruption of anterolateral soft tissue structures, or increased tibial slope. In the setting of revision or primary ACL reconstruction with persistent anterolateral laxity, despite repair or reconstruction […]

Lateral Posterior Tibial Slope in Male and Female Athletes Sustaining Contact Versus Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears

Background

Lateral posterior tibial slope (PTS) has been identified as a risk factor for primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears.

Purpose/Hypothesis

The purpose was to prospectively determine if there was a difference in lateral PTS between male and female athletes sustaining contact ACL tears as compared with a group of sex-, age-, […]

Overlap Between Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Anterolateral Meniscal Root Insertions

AJSM 2017

Over the past decade, there has been an increasing emphasis on anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction to best restore knee kinematics after an ACL tear. Although studies have shown that the position, size and shape of the ACL insertion site are variable, anatomic single-and double-bundle ACL reconstructions […]

Outcomes After Biologically Augmented Isolated Meniscal Repair With Marrow Venting Are Comparable With Those After Meniscal Repair With Concomitant Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

2017 AJSM

Meniscal repair procedures are increasingly performed because of an enhanced understanding of the long-term deleterious consequences of meniscectomy, the benefits of meniscal preservation, and the improved techniques and devices available for meniscal repair. While meniscal repair has demonstrated a higher reoperation rate than meniscectomy, recent studies have reported […]

High-Load Preconditioning of Soft Tissue Grafts: An In Vitro Biomechanical Bovine Tendon Model


2016 KSSTA

No consensus exists regarding the optimal preconditioning protocol that will minimize postoperative elongation while creating a graft that is biomechanically equivalent to the native anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). It was hypothesized that a preconditioning protocol of specific mode and magnitude would create a graft with equivalent stiffness to the native ACL.

In this experimental […]

Dimensional assessment of continuous loop cortical suspension devices and clinical implications for intraoperative button flipping and intratunnel graft length

JOURNAL OF ORTHOPAEDIC RESEARCH 2015

Continuous loop cortical suspension devices have been demonstrated to be more consistent and biomechanically superior compared to adjustable loop devices; however, continuous loop devices present unique challenges compared to adjustable loop devices, especially in short tunnel reconstruction applications. Specifically, adjustable loop devices have the a the intratunnel graft length to be […]
