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 […]

Proximal Tibiofibular Reconstruction in Adolescent Patients

2018 Arthroscopy Techniques

Instability of the proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ) can present as frank dislocations, vague symptoms of lateral knee pain, discomfort during activity, or symptoms related to irritation of the common peroneal nerve. An accurate preoperative diagnosis is imperative and should include a trial of taping of the PTFJ […]

The Influence of Graft Tensioning Sequence on Tibiofemoral Orientation During Bicruciate and Posterolateral Corner Knee Ligament Reconstruction

2018 AJSM

Background: During multiple knee ligament reconstructions, the graft tensioning order may influence the final tibiofemoral orientation and corresponding knee kinematics. Nonanatomic tibiofemoral orientation may result in residual knee instability, altered joint loading, and an increased propensity for graft failure.

Purpose: To biomechanically evaluate the effect of different graft […]

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 […]

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 […]

Demographics and Injuries Associated With Knee Dislocation

2017 OJSM

Few studies have reported on the incidence, injury mechanisms, ligament injury patterns, and associated injuries of knee dislocations. Most studies are retrospective in nature, and few patients are included. The incidence of these injuries is reported to be between 0.02% and 0.2% of all orthopaedic injuries. There is […]
