Incidence of Displaced Posterolateral Tibial Plateau and Lateral Femoral Condyle Impaction Fractures in the Setting of Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear


Abstract

Bone bruising of the posterolateral tibial plateau and the lateral femoral condyle sulcus terminalis has a well-established association with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Impaction fractures of the femur and tibia may occur in these locations; however, there is a paucity of literature describing these fractures.

Re-revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: An Evaluation From the Norwegian Knee Ligament Registry


Purpose

To identify the rate of re-revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction(ACLR) to estimate the influence of patient-related factors on the risk of re-revision ACLR. The secondary aim of the study was to report the intra-articular findings and patient-related factors at the time of revision ACLR and to compare these with the findings in a matched controlled […]

Anterior Closing Wedge Proximal Tibial Osteotomy for Slope Correction in Failed ACL Reconstructions


Abstract

Increased sagittal plane posterior tibial slope has been identified as a risk factor for primary anterior cruciate
ligament reconstruction (ACLR) failure. Although ACLR failure is multifactorial, correction of sagittal plane posterior tibial
slope should be evaluated in patients with an ACLR graft rupture. There are limited technical descriptions of proposed
decreasing tibial slope osteotomy procedures; therefore, the […]

A History of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction at the National Football League Combine Results in Inferior Early National Football League Career Participation

2018 Arthroscopy Journal

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears have been reported to have an annual incidence of 0.17 per 1,000 players in college football and 0.7 per 1,000 players in the National Football League (NFL). Previous data have shown that up to 8% of all participants at the NFL Combine […]

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 […]

Paraskiing Crash and Knee Dislocation With Multiligament Reconstruction and Iliotibial Band Repair


The American Journal of Orthopedics 2017

We describe the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and complications of a 27-year-old male paraskiier who sustained a closed high-velocity knee dislocation after colliding with a tree at a speed of 45 mph and falling 40 feet to the ground. Extensive surgery to repair and recon- struct the knee included open […]

Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction Techniques, Biomechanics, and Clinical Outcomes: A Systematic Review

2017 Arthroscopy

The description of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) and its effect on controlling internal rotation has led to the development of ALL reconstruction techniques in an effort to better restore native knee biomechanics and stability. As a model, anatomic-based and biomechanically validated reconstructions have led to improved […]

Meniscal Ramp Lesions


2016 OJSM

Meniscal ramp lesions are more frequently associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries than previously recognized. Some authors suggest that this entity results from disruption of the meniscotibial ligaments of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, whereas others support the idea that it is created by a tear of the peripheral attachment […]
