Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Failure and Revision Surgery: Current Concepts


Authors:

Juan Del Castillo, MD, Gilbert Moatshe, MD, Robert F LaPrade, MD

Abstract:

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is one of the most commonly performed procedures in orthopaedic sports medicine. Despite developments in understanding the anatomy and biomechanics of the knee joint, a fairly large subset of patients has ACLR failure. Outcomes after revision […]

Posterior Medial Meniscus Root Tears Potentiate the Effect of Increased Tibial Slope on Anterior Cruciate Ligament Graft Forces


Abstract

Increased posterior tibial slope and posterior medial meniscus root tears increase the force experienced by the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and predispose patients to higher rates of primary ACL injury or ACL graft failure after an ACL reconstruction (ACLR). However, the interplay among sagittal plane tibial slope, medial meniscus […]

Current Trends Among US Surgeons in the Identification, Treatment, and Time of Repair for Medial Meniscal Ramp Lesions at the Time of ACL Surgery


2019 The Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine

Meniscal ramp lesions are becoming increasingly recognized. Ramp lesions have been described as tears at the posterior meniscocapsular junction and/or tears of the posterior meniscotibial ligament, and they have a reported incidence of 16% to 40% of all anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Based on their location, these […]

Tibial Slope and Its Effect on Force in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Grafts

Background

Previous work has reported that increased tibial slope is directly correlated with increased anterior tibial translation, possibly predisposing patients to higher rates of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and causing higher rates of ACL graft fail- ures over the long term. However, the effect of changes in sagittal plane […]

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 […]

Anterolateral Knee Extra-articular Stabilizers

Background: Persistent clinical instability after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction may be associated with injury to the anterolateral structures and has led to renewed interest in anterolateral extra-articular procedures. The influence of these procedures on knee kinematics is controversial.

Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose was to investigate the biomechanical properties of anatomic […]

Influence of Meniscal and Chondral Lesions on Patient-Reported Outcomes After Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction at 2-Year Follow-up

Background: Meniscal and chondral lesions are commonly associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, and these lesions may play a role in patient outcomes after ACL reconstruction.

Purpose: To determine the effects of the presence and location of meniscal and chondral lesions at the time of ACL reconstruction on patient-reported […]

Primary Versus Revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: Patient Demographics, Radiographic Findings, and Associated Lesions

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences in intra-articular pathology, demographic characteristics, and radiographic characteristics of the knee associated with primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) versus revision ACLR at the time of initial presentation with either a native anterior cruciate ligament tear or an […]

Biomechanical Role of Lateral Structures in Controlling Anterolateral Rotatory Laxity: The Anterolateral Ligament

2017 Elsevier – Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics

Recent renewed interest in the anatomy of the anterolateral complex of the knee, combined with concern regarding persistent instability after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, has led to an expansion of the literature on the biomechanics of many structures of the anterolateral complex of […]

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 […]
