Editorial Commentary: Mild Limb Asymmetry and Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction-A Classic "Chicken and Egg" Scenario?

Arthroscopy 2019 Mar;35(3):950-952

Weill Cornell Medical College.

Growth disturbance from a physeal injury is considered by many surgeons to be the most feared iatrogenic surgical complication after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in skeletally immature patients, typically resulting in valgus, recurvatum, and/or a short limb. These deformities also predispose children to an ACL injury in the first instance, and therefore, a firm understanding of the contributions of both preoperative deformity and iatrogenic injury to postoperative limb asymmetry is critical. Preoperative and postoperative imaging (until 2 years postoperatively or skeletal maturity) should include standing hip-to-ankle alignment radiographs when the patient is able to straighten the knee and fully bear weight, as well as a lateral projection of the knee to quantify tibial slope.

Research Coordinator, Aurora Research Institute, Aurora Health Care, Milwaukee, WI.

Ankle instability is a common problem that often leads to surgery to stabilize the ankle if conservative methods are unsuccessful in returning the patient to full activity. Surgical ankle stabilization, including arthroscopic and open methods, has been performed with overall excellent results reported. Although initial ligament strength after repair is weaker than the native ligament, new methods of augmentation with suture tape have yielded initial strength comparable to native ligament.

Department of Orthopedics, Blue Ridge Division of Emergeortho, Foot and Ankle Center, 2585 Hendersonville Road, Arden, NC 28704, USA.

Over the last 10 years, significant advances have been made and successful techniques have now been developed that effectively treat ankle instability via the arthroscope.Currently arthroscopic lateral ligament repair techniques can be grouped into "arthroscopic-assisted techniques," "all-arthroscopic techniques," and "all-inside techniques." Recent studies have proven these arthroscopic techniques to be a simple, safe, and biomechanically equivalent, stable alternative to open Brostrom Gould lateral ligament reconstruction. Read More

Initial stability and stress distribution of ankle arthroscopic arthrodesis with three kinds of 2-screw configuration fixation: a finite element analysis.

J Orthop Surg Res 2018 Oct 20;13(1):263. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Southwest Hospital, The Third Military Medical University, Gaotanyan Str. 30, Chongqing city, 400038, People's Republic of China.

Background: Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis (AAA) is recognized as the standard treatment for the end-stage ankle arthritis. Two-screw configuration fixation is a typical technique for AAA; however, no consensus has been reached on how to select most suitable inserted position and direction. For better joint reduction, we developed a new configuration (2 home run-screw configuration: 2 screws are inserted from the lateral-posterior and medial-posterior malleolus into the talar neck) and investigated whether it turned out to be better than the other commonly used 2-screw configurations.
