Combined Intra-articular and Extra-articular Reconstruction in Anterior Cruciate Ligament-Deficient Knee: 25 Years Later.

Arthroscopy 2016 10 4;32(10):2039-2047. Epub 2016 May 4.

"La Sapienza" University, Sant'Andrea Hospital, Traumatology Sports Center "Kilk Kilgour", Rome, Italy.

Purpose: To determine whether an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-reconstructed knee with hamstring autograft has a greater incidence of degenerative changes when an extra-articular reconstruction is added and to determine the effect of the combined reconstruction on knee stability and function at long-term follow-up.

Methods: For this retrospective study, patients who underwent ACL reconstruction between January 2002 and December 2003 were selected and classified into 2 groups, I and II. Group I consisted of patients operated by a standard ACL reconstruction, and group II consisted of patients in whom, owing to the presence of risk factors (severe pivot shift graded +++ or high-risk sports), an extra-articular reconstruction performed with ileo-tibial tract according to McIntosh as modified by Cocker Arnold technique, was used in conjunction with intra-articular ACL reconstruction.

Simultaneous reconstruction of ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and medial patellofemoral ligament with ipsilateral quadriceps grafts.

Arthroscopy 2010 Sep;26(9):1258-62

Department of Traumatology, University Medical Centre Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament is a well-known entity and causes anteroposterior and rotational instability of an injured knee. Rupture of the medial patellofemoral ligament is less frequent, and its insufficiency causes patellar instability. Several techniques have been described for the reconstruction of each ligament.

Anterior cruciate ligament graft fixation--a myth busted?

Arthroscopy 2010 May 8;26(5):681-4. Epub 2010 Apr 8.

Department of Surgery and Institute of Medical Technology, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland.

Anterior cruciate ligament graft fixation has become one of the most investigated topics in the sports traumatology literature. With over 400 publications within the past decade, a plausible explanation for the popularity of the topic would be that anterior cruciate ligament graft fixation represents an obvious clinical problem. Yet this does not seem to be the case. Read More

Double-bundle reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament using the transtibial technique.

Arthroscopy 2008 Oct;24(10):1190-4

Sports Traumatology and Arthroscopic Surgery Unit, IRCCS Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute, Milan, Italy.

We present an arthroscopic surgical procedure for double-bundle transtibial anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with 2 tibial and femoral tunnels using autologous semitendinosus and gracilis tendons. The first aim is to attempt to create the femoral tunnels correctly through the tibial tunnels.

Fresh-frozen free-tendon allografts versus autografts in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: delayed remodeling and inferior mechanical function during long-term healing in sheep.

Arthroscopy 2008 Apr;24(4):448-58

Sports Traumatology & Arthroscopy Service, Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery, Department for Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Charité, University Medicine Berlin, Germany.

Purpose: The objective of this study was to investigate the biologic healing and restoration of the mechanical function of a free soft tissue autograft and compare these to an identical nonsterilized fresh frozen allograft for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in an in vivo sheep model.

Methods: Forty-eight merino sheep received either an allograft or autograft ACL reconstruction with a long flexor tendon. Each group was analyzed at 6, 12, and 52 weeks for descriptive analysis of histologic changes and quantitative analysis of recellularization, revascularization, and mechanical function. Read More

The impact of radiofrequency shrinkage on the mechanical and histologic properties of the elongated anterior cruciate ligament in a sheep model.

Arthroscopy 2005 Aug;21(8):923-33

Department of Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery, Sports Traumatology and Arthroscopy Service, Charité, Campus Virchow-Clinic, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany.

Purpose: Shrinkage of the elongated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and its grafts with radiofrequency (RF) energy has become increasingly popular as an alternative to ACL reconstruction in the field of knee surgery. Although there have been a few clinical studies on the outcome and complications of RF shrinkage of the elongated ACL, there is a substantial lack of in vivo basic science studies to evaluate the mechanical and histologic changes of such treated tissue. Therefore, it was the aim of this study to simulate an ACL elongation in an animal model, treat this pathology with RF shrinkage, and analyze the mechanical and histologic changes at 6 months after initial treatment.

Tendon healing in a bone tunnel. Part I: Biomechanical results after biodegradable interference fit fixation in a model of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in sheep.

Trauma & Reconstructive Surgery, Sports Traumatology, and Arthroscopy Service, Charité, Campus Virchow-Clinic, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany.

Purpose: Interference fit fixation of soft-tissue grafts has recently raised strong interest because it allows for anatomic graft fixation that may increase knee stability and graft isometry. Although clinical data show promising results, no data exist on how tendon healing progresses using this fixation. The purpose of the present study was to investigate anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction biomechanically using direct tendon-to-bone interference fit fixation with biodegradable interference screws in a sheep model.

Anatomic double-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using hamstring tendons.

Reconstructive Surgery, Sports Traumatology and Arthroscopy Service, Charité, Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Humboldt-University, Berlin.

Recent biomechanical studies have shown that an anatomic double-bundle posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction is superior in restoring normal knee laxity compared with the conventional single-bundle isometric reconstruction. We describe a modification of an endoscopic PCL reconstruction technique using a double-bundle Y-shaped hamstring tendon graft. A double- or triple-bundle semitendinosus-gracilis tendon graft is used and directly fixed with soft threaded biodegradable interference screws. Read More

Cyclops syndrome occurring after partial rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament not treated by surgical reconstruction.

Arthroscopy 2000 Apr;16(3):328-31

Department of Traumatology, University Medical Centre Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Cyclops syndrome is one of the specific causes of loss of extension of the knee following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The syndrome is manifested by progressive loss of extension associated with pain and audible clunk at terminal extension caused by a pedunculated nodule of fibrovascular proliferative tissue usually arising from the graft. The entity has been described recently and has been reported exclusively as a complication of ACL reconstructions. Read More
