Bone graft substitute for tunnel filling improved ACL reconstruction outcomes


Overview

Researchers randomly assigned 40 patients undergoing two-stage revision ACL reconstruction to receive either autologous iliac crest cancellous bone graft for tunnel grafting (control group; n=20) or silicate-substituted calcium phosphate in the form of sculptable microgranules (Actifuse MIS System, Baxter) as a bone graft substitute for tunnel augmentation (intervention group; n=20). Researchers assessed the patients’ […]

Influence of Medial Meniscus Bucket-Handle Repair in Setting of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction on Tibiofemoral Contact Mechanics: A Biomechanical Study


Purpose:

To compare the impact of an inside-out repair versus meniscectomy of a medial meniscus bucket-handle tear in restoring native contact areas and pressures across the tibial plateaus in the setting of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR).

Methods:

Ten fresh-frozen cadaveric knees were tested in 6 knee conditions (1: intact; 2: ACL torn and bucket-handle […]

Incidence and Detection of Meniscal Ramp Lesions on Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients With Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

2017 AJSM

Increased attention has been directed toward the identification and treatment of concomitant knee injuries associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears to best restore knee biomechanics and function. Studies have reported that 43% of patients with ACL tears have concomitant lateral or medial meniscal tears. Meniscocapsular tears of […]

Posterior Wall Blowout in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction


OJSM 2016

Violation of the posterior femoral cortex, commonly referred to as posterior wall blowout, can be a devastating intraoperative complication in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and lead to loss of graft fixation or early graft failure. If cortical blowout occurs despite careful planning and adherence to proper surgical technique, a thorough knowledge of […]
