Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament: comparison of outside-in and all-inside techniques. (1/1048)

The aim of this prospective study was to compare two arthroscopic techniques for reconstructing the anterior cruciate ligament, the "outside-in" (two incisions) and the "all-inside" (one incision) techniques. The results obtained for 30 patients operated on using the "outside-in" technique (group I) were compared with those for 29 patients operated on using the "all-inside" technique (group II). Before surgery, there were no significant differences between the groups in terms of Lysholm score, Tegner activity level, patellofemoral pain score, or knee laxity. Both groups displayed significant improvements in Lysholm score after 24 months, from 69 (16) to 91 (9) in group I and from 70 (17) to 90 (15) in group II (means (SD)). There were also significant improvements in patellofemoral pain scores in both groups, from 13 (6) to 18 (5) in group I and from 14 (6) to 18 (4) in group II after 24 months. No difference was found between the groups in knee stability at the 24 month follow up. The IKDC score was identical in both groups at follow up. The operation took significantly longer for patients in group I (mean 94 (15)) than for those in group II (mean 86 (20)) (p = 0.03). The mean sick leave was 7.7 (6.2) weeks in group I and 12.3 (9.7) weeks in group II (p = 0.026), indicating that there may be a higher morbidity associated with the "all-inside" technique. It can be concluded that there were no significant differences between the two different techniques in terms of functional results, knee laxity, or postoperative complications. The results were satisfactory and the outcome was similar in both treatment groups.  (+info)

Extensive post-traumatic ossification of the patellar tendon. A report of two cases. (2/1048)

Two men, aged 21 and 50 years, were seen with ossification of the patellar tendon after injury to the knee in adolescence. They complained of pain and had patella alta. Large bony masses were excised from below the affected patellae. The patellar tendon was then reconstructed using a Leeds-Keio ligament. The results at six and ten years, respectively, were good, with neither patient having pain or an extension lag.  (+info)

Changes in joint cartilage aggrecan after knee injury and in osteoarthritis. (3/1048)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the concentrations of aggrecan fragments in synovial fluid from patients with knee joint injury, osteoarthritis (OA), or acute pyrophosphate arthritis (PPA; pseudogout), and to test their relative reactivity with the 846 epitope, a putative marker of cartilage aggrecan synthesis. METHODS: Samples of knee joint fluid from 385 patients and 9 healthy-knee volunteers were obtained in a cross-sectional study. Study groups were acute PPA/ pseudogout (n = 60), anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture (n = 159), meniscus lesion (n = 129), and primary knee OA (n = 37). The 846 epitope on aggrecan was assayed by competitive solution-phase radioimmunoassay. Aggrecan fragments were assayed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using a monoclonal antibody (1-F21). Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), C-propeptide of type II collagen (CPII), bone sialoprotein, matrix metalloproteinases 1 and 3, and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 were previously quantified by immunoassays. RESULTS: Reactivity of the 846 epitope was increased in all study groups compared with the reference group, and was highest in patients with primary OA. The median levels (in microg fetal aggrecan equivalents/ml) of the epitope were 0.28 (range 0.24-0.47) in the reference group, 0.48 (range 0.26-1.32) in PPA/pseudogout, 0.61 (range 0.12-2.87) in ACL rupture, 0.53 (range 0.22-3.02) in meniscus lesion, and 0.68 (range 0.31-4.31) in primary OA. The 846 epitope reactivity per microg aggrecan fragments in the joint fluid was higher in late-stage OA than in early-stage OA. Epitope 846 reactivity correlated positively with several markers of matrix turnover, particularly with COMP (r(s) = 0.421) and CPII (r(s) = 0.307). CONCLUSION: The observed differences in 846 epitope reactivity in synovial fluid, and its concentration in relation to aggrecan and other markers of matrix turnover, were consistent with marked ongoing changes in aggrecan turnover after joint injury and in the development of OA. OA is thus a disease characterized by dynamic changes in tissue macromolecule turnover, which is reflected by measurable changes in aggrecan epitopes in the synovial fluid.  (+info)

Common peroneal nerve palsy: a clinical and electrophysiological review. (4/1048)

In a series of 70 patients (75 cases of common peroneal nerve palsy) the common causes were trauma about the knee or about the hip, compression, and underlying neuropathy. A few palsies occurred spontaneously for no apparent reason. The prognosis was uniformly good in the compression group; recovery was delayed but usually satisfactory in patients who had suffered stretch injuries. In the acute stage, when clinical paralysis appears to be complete, electrophysiological studies are a useful guide to prognosis. They may also indicate an underlying neuropathy and they detect early evidence of recovery. The anatomical peculiarities of the common peroneal nerve are noted and aspects of the clinical picture, management, and prognosis of palsy are discussed.  (+info)

The locked patella. An unusual complication of haemophilia. (5/1048)

Mechanical derangements of the knee are an uncommon complication of chronic haemophiliac arthropathy. Two patients with locking of the patella were treated by manipulation. The mechanism of the injury was forced flexion of the knee joint beyond the limit of its restricted range. The injury is a serious one and may take six months to recover.  (+info)

Mucoid cystic degeneration of the cruciate ligament. (6/1048)

A 35-year-old man was seen with pain in the back of the knee. MRI showed a mass in the anterior cruciate ligament. Biopsy indicated mucoid degeneration. Arthroscopic resection of the ligament was carried out, with relief of symptoms.  (+info)

WOMAC Osteoarthritis Index--additional dimensions for use in subjects with post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the knee. Western Ontario and MacMaster Universities. (7/1048)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the sensitivity of WOMAC and the two added dimensions Sport and Recreation Function and Knee Related Quality of Life in subjects with radiographic knee OA to that in controls. To study the influence of age on the reported outcomes. DESIGN: Outcomes were compared between subjects having had meniscectomy 21 years ago and which at time of follow-up had definite radiographic OA (N=41, mean age 57), and age- and sex-matched controls without radiographic OA (N=50, mean age 53). For the purpose of studying the impact of age, the groups were divided in two age groups, younger and older than 50 years, respectively. Close to 50% of both groups reported current physical activity levels of at least recreational golf, dancing, hiking, etc. Symptoms and function were assessed by WOMAC Osteoarthritis Index and the added dimensions Sport and Recreational Function (Sport/Rec) and Knee Related Quality of Life (QOL). A percentage score was calculated, 0 indicating extreme knee problems and 100 indicating no knee problems. RESULTS: The control group had mean scores of 88-98 for the different dimensions. The OA group scored significantly lower in all dimensions (P< 0.0001). The most discriminative dimensions in both age groups were Sport/Rec and QOL with mean scores of 52 and 59 (ranges 0-100). CONCLUSION: The dimensions Sport and Recreation Function, and Knee Related QOL were highly sensitive and discriminant outcomes in both age groups and should be assessed in addition to WOMAC in subjects with post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the knee.  (+info)

Knee pain and the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. (8/1048)

Pain over the front of the knee is common after surgery or trauma but often a definite diagnosis is difficult to make. Over the past year we have seen five cases in which the pain could be ascribed to damage to a branch of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. Two were subsequent to trauma and three to surgical procedures. In all five cases surgical exploration gave symptomatic relief. Eight cadaveric knees were prosected to explore further the anatomy of this nerve in relation to the injuries. Injury to one of these branches should be considered in cases of persistent anterior, anteromedial or anterolateral knee pain or neurological symptoms following surgery or trauma.  (+info)

There are all kinds of acute injuries the knee can sustain while playing tennis like ligament and meniscus tears. These types of injuries typically occur due to shearing rotational forces placed on the joint during deceleration. In my humble opinion,I believe acute knee injuries are closely connected to the lack of reactive trunk stability. So if you are interested in trying to prevent these injuries squats and leg presses will not get the job done. Get the job done by spending time reactively training the trunk.. Take a look at the video below to see what I mean along with some really simple band exercises designed to get the trunk on board and prevent these types of injuries.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Trabecular Bone Loss at a Distant Skeletal Site Following Noninvasive Knee Injury in Mice. AU - Christiansen, Blaine A. AU - Emami, Armaun J.. AU - Fyhrie, David P. AU - Satkunananthan, Patrick B.. AU - Hardisty, Michael R.. PY - 2015/1/1. Y1 - 2015/1/1. N2 - Traumatic injuries can have systemic consequences, as the early inflammatory response after trauma can lead to tissue destruction at sites not affected by the initial injury. This systemic catabolism may occur in the skeleton following traumatic injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. However, bone loss following injury at distant, unrelated skeletal sites has not yet been established. In the current study, we utilized a mouse knee injury model to determine whether acute knee injury causes a mechanically significant trabecular bone loss at a distant, unrelated skeletal site (L5 vertebral body). Knee injury was noninvasively induced using either high-speed (HS; 500 mm/s) or low-speed (LS; 1 mm/s) tibial ...
Dr Papaliodis in Forth Worth, Keller and Southlake, TX performs arthroscopic knee ligament reconstruction surgery to treat knee ligament injuries.
By Meaghan Kirby. 7/10/2018. Torn. Surgery. Out for the season. These are words every athlete dreads to hear during their career in sports. One of the most common injuries among female athletes is a knee injury and most common knee injury is an anterior cruciate ligament tear (ACL).. The Womens Sport Foundation reported ACL injuries account for 50 percent or more of knee injuries. Though ACL injuries occur in both men and women sports, female athletes tend to more vulnerable than male athletes to injure their knee. There is no exact reason in why women are more prone to the injury compared to men, but there are many factors that are linked to the possibility such as playing areas, physical difference and sports techniques. In research done by Dr. Paul Weitzel, a New England Baptist sports medicine expert, he discusses and explains why females are more susceptible to ACL tears. One of the most common reasoning when it comes technique, women often land flat-footed instead of on the balls of their ...

The Sunshine Coast Knee and Hip Clinic aims to provide operative procedures to treat knee and hip medical conditions such as: meniscal tear, knee ligament injuries, patella dislocation, arthritis, knee arthritis, hip arthritis and AVN / SONK / stress fracture of the knee.
Proper care can make the knee joint stable again. It takes teamwork: you, your doctor, and your physical therapist all working together. Before the knee can be treated, an evaluation is needed. After treatment, the patient plays a large role in the recovery of the knee. An evaluation helps the doctor know how severe the particular injury is. It also points to your best treatment options. The sooner the knee is evaluated. The sooner the patient can be treated, and the better the chance of full recovery. Unfortunately I was unable to get my knee repaired right away. Dr. Freddie Fu informed me that my knee will return to 95% capacity of what it was at before the tear. He informed me that 90% of people never return to 100% utilization of the knee. Dr. Fu also told me that since I am young, active, and healthy this surgery does not present any long term problems with my knee.. A knee ligament injury can be treated in one of two ways: nonsurgically or surgically. Your treatment depends on how severe ...
Context: Single- versus double-leg landing events occur the majority of the time in a netball match. Landings are involved in large proportions of netball noncontact knee injury events. Of all landing-induced anterior cruciate ligament injuries, most occur during single-leg landings. Knowledge of whether different single-leg functional performance tests capture the same or different aspects of lower-limb motor performance will therefore inform clinicians reasoning processes and assist in netball noncontact knee injury prevention screening. Objective: To determine the correlation between the triple hop for distance (THD), single hop for distance (SHD), and vertical hop (VH) for the right and left lower limbs in adult female netball players. Design: Cross-sectional. Setting: Local community netball club. Participants: A total of 23 players (age 28.7 [6.2] y; height 171.6 [7.0] cm; mass 68.2 [9.8] kg). Interventions: There were 3 measured trials (right and left) for THD, SHD, and VH, respectively. ...
Following an injury, your knee will initially be treated with rest, ice, compression, and elevation. You should apply ice immediately after injuring your knee. Applying ice packs to your knee can help reduce pain and swelling. You should rest your knee by not placing weight on it. Elevating your knee at a level above your heart helps to reduce swelling. Your doctor may provide over-the-counter or prescription pain medication. Immediately following your injury, you may use crutches to help you walk. In some cases, a knee brace may be recommended to temporarily immobilize and support the knee. A knee immobilizer is used for only a short period of time. Treatment for ACL tears is very individualized. Many factors need to be considered, such as your activity level, severity of injury, and degree of knee instability. Treatments may include physical therapy, surgery, or a combination of both. The most likely candidates for non-surgical treatments have partial ACL tears without knee instability, ...

Podiatrists and sports medicine professionals will tell you that there is no set answer to what causes knee injuries. Knee injuries can be caused by biomechanical failures. Or, they can be damaged in an acute, one-time injury. Also, many times knee pain is the result of repetitive movements over a period of time.. As far as running goes, its the dynamic nature of the sport that predisposes runners to knee joint complications. Runners who experience knee pain or injury often find that the causes are exercising too intensely, using improper form, or simply getting off balance. And nothing will kill the gains you have made in your running program faster than a painful knee injury. Just ask a few of the athletes you see walking the track instead of doing what they would rather be doing - running.. Preventing Knee Injury ...

When a knee injury occurs, initial treatment should be rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Crutches are often helpful if you are unable to bear weight. If significant pain occurs with motion, then a straight leg brace, such as a knee immobilizer, is beneficial. If a bone fracture is suspected due to deformity at the knee, then a trip to the Emergency Room for x-rays is indicated. But most knee injuries do not require immediate evaluation and can wait a few days to be evaluated by a physician. Often times, the exam is more helpful after the initial pain of the injury has settled.. Orthopedic surgeons are specially trained to evaluate and treat injuries of the bone and joint system. They are the specialists regarding knee injuries.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relatio~ship between an acute knee effusion and lower extremity performance. Nine subjects performed the single hop, cross-over hop and 6 meter timed hop test using the dominant limb~ ·Afterward, ~hey received either a 30 ml or 60 ml saline injection into; the knee and repeated the tests. A 2 x 2 analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to test for differences in pre- and post-injection test scores and 30 ml and 60 ml effusions. Only, the timed hop had changes in performance which occurred following a 60 ml injection (p , • 05) • The timed hop was the only one sensitive enough to detect changes in performance. Reasons for the other 2 tests having. no changes include compensatory mechanisms, fluid dispersal in the joint, lack of test sensitivity, absence of an inflammatory process and a limited sample size (n=9). These results imply the need for further research on the relationship between an acute knee effusion and lower extremity performance. ...
Knee fractures rarely occur in childhood sports, but with any knee injury in a growing child there is a possibility of a fracture related to one of the growth plates. Any of the bones of the knee joint-the bottom of the thighbone, the top of the shinbone, and the kneecap-can be broken. Therefore, a knee injury that impedes a childs ability to bear weight or does not improve within a few days should be evaluated by a physician. One particularly vulnerable area in a growing child is the tibial tuberosity, which is the bump on the front of the knee where the patellar tendon attaches. Fractures to the growth plate in this area often require surgery.. Dislocations or partial dislocations of the kneecap occasionally occur in children and adolescents. Sometimes there is a visible, obvious deformity of the knee, with the kneecap in a position toward the outside of the knee-or the athlete may simply feel something pop out of the joint and then pop back in. When this occurs, the patella should be placed ...

Anterior cruciate ligament injury is a common and serious knee injury. ACL deficiency can lead to symptomatic instability with possibly more intra-articular damage and accelerated degenerative joint disease. These assumptions are not supported by outcomes of clinical studies that report that mid- and long-term outcomes are equal for operatively and non-operatively treated patients with regard to patient related outcome measurements and osteoarthritis. Whether arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction results in better patient reported outcomes than nonoperative treatment followed by an optional reconstruction is unclear. Primary research question is whether is a clinical relevant difference in change in International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) questionnaire over a period of 24 months of an early surgical intervention versus a more conservative management of patients with a complete ACL rupture? ...

BACKGROUND The anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee is prone to osteoarthritis and meniscus lesions. Very little, however, is known about the biomechanical properties of articular cartilage in anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knees. PURPOSE To evaluate biomechanical and macroscopical cartilage changes in the knee joint with respect to the time after anterior cruciate ligament rupture. HYPOTHESIS Chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficiency induces cartilage softening. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS Cartilage stiffness of 50 patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstructive surgery because of symptomatic knee instability after chronic anterior cruciate ligament rupture was measured with an arthroscopic indenter device, and the number and size of cartilage lesions were evaluated. RESULTS The cartilage stiffness did not correlate with time from trauma to surgery (r = 0.002, P = .99), but the number of cartilage lesions in the knee increased

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear: An acute knee injury that occurs when the foot is planted, the knee is flexed, and a valgus force is applied to the knee with the lower leg in external rotation; commonly occurs in sports that require twisting, jumping, and pivoting. Cartilage: A cellular tissue in adults that is specific to joints; a tough, fibrous material with high collagen content, such as found in the meniscus of the knee. Instability: Looseness, unsteadiness, or an inability to withstand normal physiologic loading without mechanical deformation. Knee brace: A limb orthosis or device intended for medical purposes that is worn on the lower extremity to support, to correct, or to prevent deformities, or to align body structures for functional improvement.

Anterior cruciate ligament tear. Coloured computer tomography (CT) scan of the knee joint of a patient with a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This ligament is one of the four major ligaments holding the knee joint together, joining the femur (thigh bone, top) and the tibia (bottom). Injuries to this ligament are a relatively common sporting injury, and surgery is needed to restore full function to the knee. Here, the injured area is the light pink area (centre right) between the ends of the two bones (dark red). - Stock Image C007/4096
Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear Introduction The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured ligament of the knee. The ligament is most commonly injured during an athletic activity. Due
There are an estimated 80,000 to 100,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repairs in the United States each year. Most ACL tears occur from noncontact injuries. Women experience ACL tears up to nine times more often than men. Evaluation of the ACL should be performed immediately after an injury if possible, but is often limited by swelling and pain. When performed properly, a complete knee examination is more than 80 percent sensitive for an ACL injury. The Lachman test is the most accurate test for detecting an ACL tear. Magnetic resonance imaging is the primary study used to diagnose ACL injury in the United States. It can also identify concomitant meniscal injury, collateral ligament tear, and bone contusions. Treatment consists of conservative management or surgical intervention, with the latter being the better option for patients who want to return to a high level of activity. Patients who undergo surgery must commit to appropriate rehabilitation for the best outcome. Long-term sequelae of ACL

The ACL is one of the most commonly injured ligaments in the knee. It helps provide stability to the knee joint, and is especially useful with cutting and pivoting activities. It can be injured without direct contact to the knee, and is often torn when the body is rotating and the foot is planted. When the ligament tears, patients often feel a pop in the knee and have swelling. It may be difficult to put weight on the affected leg for several days. Initial treatment includes ice, compression, and elevation.. ​. ACL tears can often be diagnosed on physical examination. An MRI is often used to confirm a tear of the ligament, as well as to identify whether additional structures have been injured. A high percentage of patients with ACL tears have continued instability in the knee during sporting or work-related activities. ​. The majority of patients who are active with sports or at work may require anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Surgical treatment then requires reconstruction of ...
Early diagnosis of an anterior cruciate ligament injury or ACL to the knee is important for correct management and reduced post-trauma issues.
Several meta-analyses have been published on the effectiveness of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury prevention training programs to reduce ACL injury risk, with various degrees of risk reduction reported. The purpose of this research was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of overlapping meta-analyses evaluating the effectiveness of ACL injury prevention training programs so as to summarize the amount of reduction in risk for all ACL and non-contact ACL injuries into a single source, and determine if there were sex differences in the relative efficacy of ACL injury prevention training programs. Five databases (Medline, PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, and Cochrane) were searched to identify meta-analyses that evaluated the effectiveness of ACL injury prevention training programs on ACL injury risk. ACL injury data were extracted and the results from each meta-analysis were combined using a summary meta-analysis based on odds ratios (OR). Eight meta-analyses met eligibility criteria. ...

BACKGROUND: Bone bruising is commonly observed on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this study was to determine if the location and prevalence of tibial and femoral bone bruises after ACL injury can be explained by specific injury mechanism(s). The secondary objective was to determine whether the bone-bruise literature supports sex-specific injury mechanism(s). We hypothesized that most studies would report bone bruising in the lateral femoral condyle (LFC) and on the posterior lateral tibial plateau (LTP).. METHODS: MEDLINE, PubMed, and SCOPUS were searched for studies that reported bone bruise prevalence and location in ACL-injured subjects. Sex differences in bone-bruise patterns were assessed. Time from injury to imaging was assessed to account for confounding effects on bone-bruise size and location.. RESULTS: Thirty-eight studies met the inclusion/exclusion criteria. Anterior-posterior location ...
Anterior cruciate ligament injuries occur most often in the sporting population. A torn anterior cruciate ligament is a common outcome from a major knee injury. The anterior cruciate ligament is the primary stabiliser of the knee joint. Thigh and calf muscles are secondary stabilisers of the knee joint.. If you have torn your anterior cruciate ligament you usually have a sudden twisting movement with your leg fixed on the ground. A snap or pop may be heard and the knee usually swells up within a few hours. The ligament either snaps in half or is pulled from the femoral or tibial surfaces. Once completely torn the ligament cannot repair itself. Partial tears may heal but the ligament is often stretched causing the knee to give way. The anterior cruciate ligament rupture will cause the knee to become unstable in certain movements. This occurs usually when one pivots such as a sudden change in direction. The knee feels like it is going to give way.. At the time of injury the other ligaments and ...
The patient is an 8 year old white male with no significant past medical history who complains of right knee pain, swelling, and decreased range of motion after having his knee slammed in a car door 5 weeks prior to presentation. At the time of injury, the patient was seen in the Emergency Room where X-rays were negative, and the patient was told he had a contusion of the knee. Patient denies locking of the knee, but gives a questionable history of giving way of the knee. It is unclear whether these episodes are truly secondary to instability. On physical examination, the patient has a small effusion. There is no medial or lateral joint line tenderness. There is no tenderness around the collateral ligaments. Range of motion is 30-90 degrees. There is no instability to varus or valgus stressing at 0 degrees and 30 degrees. MacMurray test is negative. Lachman test shows a slight increase in laxity compared to the contralateral side, but with an endpoint. Anterior drawer test also shows a good ...
In a follow-up of a randomized controlled trial, a strategy of rehabilitation plus early acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction did not provide better results at 5 years than a strategy of initial rehabilitation with the option of having a later ACL reconstruction. Results did not differ between knees surgically reconstructed early or late and those treated with rehabilitation alone. These results should encourage clinicians and young active adult patients to consider rehabilitation as a primary treatment option after an acute ACL tear, say the authors in their article published this month in BMJ. This study included 121 young, active adults (mean age 26 years) with acute ACL injury to a previously uninjured knee. All patients received similar structured rehabilitation. In addition to rehabilitation, 62 patients were assigned to early ACL reconstruction and 59 were assigned to the option of having a delayed ACL reconstruction if needed. One patient was lost to 5-year ...

Current meniscus repair techniques are only effective in treating lesions located in the peripheral vascularized region of the meniscus. Thus total or subtotal meniscectomy was still inevitable for the severe meniscus tears. Identifying patients at high risk for total/subtotal meniscectomy may allow for interventions after meniscus injury. However, few study has evaluated the risk factor associated with the total/subtotal meniscectomy, especially comparing the difference between medial and lateral meniscus. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the risk factor of total or subtotal meniscectomy for respective medial and lateral meniscus injury. Analyzing data from a big sample available in an Asian patient database, we found different risk factors associated with total/subtotal meniscectomy for respective medial and lateral side. According to the results, meniscus tears should be treated as soon as possible to reduce the risk of total or subtotal meniscectomy, especially for the medial ...

Anterior Cruciate Ligament. Read on to learn about ACL injury symptoms and causes, types of ACL injuries, methods of ACL treatment and recovery
ACL reconstruction surgery involves replacing the torn ACL with a graft, which is a tendon taken from another source. Grafts can be taken from the patellar tendon, hamstring tendon, quadriceps tendon from either the person undergoing the procedure (autograft) or a cadaver (allograft). The graft serves as scaffolding upon which new ligament tissue will grow.[1]. The surgery is done with an arthroscope or tiny camera inserted inside the knee, with additional small incisions made around the knee to insert surgical instruments. This method is less invasive and is proven to result in less pain from surgery, less time in the hospital, and quicker recovery times than open surgery (in which a long incision is made down the front of the knee and the joint is opened and exposed).[1]. The timing of ACL reconstruction has been controversial, with some studies showing worse outcomes when surgery is done immediately after injury, and others showing no difference in outcomes when surgery is done ...
We identified one study in which 141 young, active adults with acute ACL injury were randomised to either ACL reconstruction followed by structured rehabilitation (results reported for 62 participants) or conservative treatment comprising structured rehabilitation alone (results reported for 59 participants). Built into the study design was a formal option for subsequent (delayed) ACL reconstruction in the conservative treatment group, if the participant requested surgery and met pre-specified criteria.. This study was deemed at low risk of selection and reporting biases, at high risk of performance and detection biases because of the lack of blinding and at unclear risk of attrition bias because of an imbalance in the post-randomisation exclusions. According to GRADE methodology, the overall quality of the evidence was low across different outcomes.. This study identified no difference in subjective knee score (measured using the average score on four of the five sub-scales of the KOOS score ...

The ACL ligament is one of the bands of tissue that connects the femur to the tibia. An ACL tear can be painful. It can cause the knee to become unstable.
Diagnosing ACL. Physical examination is done to ascertain the injury. The doctor will ask questions pertaining to the symptoms you have as well as your medical history. He will also check each of the structures of the affected knee and compares the findings to the non-affected knee. Ligament injuries are commonly diagnosed if a comprehensive physical examination of the knee has been undertaken.. Imaging tests can also be done so that your doctor can verify your diagnosis. X-rays are taken in order to see if a broken bone is also there. However, they will not reveal any anterior cruciate ligament injury. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is also done in order to have a better view of soft tissues such as the anterior cruciate ligament. But, most of the time, an MRI is really not needed to come up with a diagnosis of ACL injury.. Management for ACL Injuries. Based on individual needs, management for ACL injuries can vary from person to person. Treatment for a young athlete who is into agility ...
An ACL injury occurs when the knee is sharply extended beyond its normal range of motion-including when the knee is bent backward, twisted, or bent side to side. If more than one of these movements occurs simultaneously, the chance of injury is even higher. An ACL injury can also be the result of contact (being hit by a person or object), which causes the knee to extend beyond its normal range. ACL injuries often occur during sports, particularly sports with a lot of stop-and-go movements, jumping, or change in direction. The injury can happen when the foot is firmly planted, the knee is bent, and a sudden change in direction happens or when the foot is firmly planted and a sudden force hits the knee. Some common sports associated with ACL injuries are: football, basketball, soccer, and skiing. These sports require movements that cause the femur to pivot on the tibia. ACL injuries are common in skiing because the length of the ski adds extra force to the twisting motion. Physical contact, like ...
PURPOSE: To compare acute ACL reconstruction (ACLR) within 8 days of injury with delayed reconstruction after normalized range of motion (ROM), 6-10 weeks after injury. It was hypothesized that acute ACL reconstruction with modern techniques is safe and can be beneficial in terms of patient-reported outcomes and range of motion. METHODS: Sample size calculation indicated 64 patients would be required to find a 5° difference in ROM at 3 months. Seventy patients with high recreational activity level, Tegner level 6 or more, were randomized to acute (within 8 days) or delayed (6-10 weeks) ACLR between 2006 and 2013 ...
The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the important structures that connect the bones of the knee joint. This ligament, which is crucial for the normal functioning of the knee, prevents the tibia from shifting abnormally forward. Injury usually occurs during a sudden rolling motion on the fixed foot.
A lot of people complain of chronic knee pain which can be due to long term swelling, pain, sensitivity in the knees.

The rationale for cutting away damaged meniscal tissue is based on the premise that the injured or damaged parts of the meniscus are the primary cause of the patients pain and discomfort. More likely, the knee pain is explained by the presence of early degenerative changes (including degenerative meniscal tissue) or established osteoarthritis in the knee and not because of a direct link between pain and meniscal damage per se.4 Meniscal tears are common in the symptom-free general middle-aged and older population with and without signs of radiographic knee osteoarthritis.5 6 Similarly, in patients with knee trauma, meniscal tears are frequently seen in the uninjured contralateral leg.7 Such studies debunk the explanation that meniscal tears always cause pain; the simple car mechanic analogy-cutting tissue away-does not apply ...

Posterolateral corner injuries (PLC injuries) of the knee are injuries to a complex area formed by the interaction of multiple structures. Injuries to the posterolateral corner can be debilitating to the person and require recognition and treatment to avoid long term consequences. Injuries to the PLC often occur in combination with other ligamentous injuries to the knee; most commonly the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). As with any injury, an understanding of the anatomy and functional interactions of the posterolateral corner is important to diagnosing and treating the injury. Patients often complain of pain and instability at the joint. With concurrent nerve injuries, patients may experience numbness, tingling and weakness of the ankle dorsiflexors and great toe extensors, or a footdrop. Follow-up studies by Levy et al. and Stannard at al. both examined failure rates for posterolateral corner repairs and reconstructions. Failure rates repairs were ...

  • The strength and stability of the knee joint depends on the strength and integrity of the ligaments that support the joint. (
  • When the ligaments are torn or damaged, most often due to excessive force during sports activity, the movement at the knee joint becomes restricted and painful limiting one s activities. (
  • When other measures such as rest, using protective knee braces or pain killers prove ineffective, surgery for repair of the torn or damaged ligaments becomes necessary. (
  • The strength and stability of the knee joint depends to a great extent on the strength and integrity of the ligaments , which are tough, elastic bands of connective tissue that connect the thigh and shin bones namely the femur and tibia respectively. (
  • Your knee ligaments connect your thighbone to your lower leg bones. (
  • The knee is made up of four main things: bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. (
  • The cruciate ligaments control the back and forth motion of your knee. (
  • Because the knee joint relies just on these ligaments and surrounding muscles for stability, it is easily injured. (
  • Injuries to the medial side of the knee are most commonly isolated to these ligaments. (
  • It has been found that the most important structures for stabilization in this area of the knee are ligaments: sMCL, dMCL, and POL. (
  • There are four main ligaments -- or fibrous tissue that connects bones to each other -- found in the knee joint, which hold the upper and lower leg bones together. (
  • Although the ACL is the most commonly injured area of the knee, injuries to the menisci, other ligaments, joint cartilage and the underlying bone structure also occur frequently (Lohmander et al. (

  • A common one is injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which occurs frequently in soccer, basketball and volleyball. (
  • The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) stops the tibia (the shinbone) from moving forwards during weight bearing activities, and provides the knee with rotational control. (
  • The cartilage in the knee gradually wears away, causing pain and swelling. (
  • When people refer to torn cartilage in the knee, they are probably talking about a meniscal tear. (
  • This is a semi-circular disc of cartilage in the knee joint which provides cushioning and support over time it may degenerate and fray or tear. (
  • The meniscus is cartilage in the knee that acts as a shock absorber between the bones. (
  • One of the most recognized and common running injuries is runner's knee. (
  • But in fact, runner's knee is not an injury in of itself. (
  • Runner's knee is almost always attributed to one of two things (or both for that matter): poor biomechanics and/or overuse. (
  • Many foot conditions eventually contribute to health concerns farther up the Kinetic Chain, especially the generalized condition of "back pain" or of course runner's knee. (
  • Known as chondromalacia patellae or patellofemoral pain syndrome, runner's knee is deteriorated or damaged cartilage under the kneecap. (
  • The knee is a joint that joins the thigh bone (femur) to the top of the shin bone (tibia). (

  • Osgood Schlatter's disease commonly affects young children between the ages of 8 and 13 years old and results in pain at the tibial tuberosity or bony bit below the knee at the top of the tibia. (
  • In the case of a more serious knee joint dislocation the tibia is dislocated from the femur, and because this affects more of the leg bones the injury requires more treatment. (
  • The knee sits in the middle of three bones: the tibia (your shinbone), the femur (your thighbone), and the patella (the kneecap). (
  • The MCL connects your femur to your tibia along the inside of your knee. (
  • The ACL connects your femur to your tibia at the center of the knee. (
  • posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) - The PCL connects your femur to your tibia at the back of the knee. (
  • The ligament, located in the center of the knee, that controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia (shin bone). (
  • Consequently, the knee joint occurs where the lower ends (condyles) of the thigh bone or femur meet the upper ends (condyles) of the shin bone or tibia. (
  • Three bones meet to form your knee joint: your thighbone (femur), shinbone (tibia), and kneecap (patella). (
  • Bones in the knee joint that can break include the patella (kneecap) and the ends of the thigh bone and shinbone (femur and tibia, respectively). (

  • Chronic pain at the back of the knee which develops gradually is likely to be from an overuse injury to one or more tendons, which join muscles to bone. (
  • The tendons in the knee are the quadriceps, patellar, and hamstring tendons. (
  • Several tendons - cables of strong tissue that connect muscles to bones - work together to help move the knee. (

  • The link between ACL injuries and the hormonal cycle has big implications for female athletes and raises the question of whether that cycle can be manipulated. (
  • Another theory suggests women's knees are more vulnerable because female athletes rely excessively on their quadricep muscles and too little on their hamstrings - perhaps as a result of incorrect training. (
  • The injury is not expected to be serious, but hyperextended knee injuries are all too common among athletes. (
  • Football is demanding on the knees, and hyperextended knee injuries are common among athletes. (

  • Common knee sprains usually involve damage to the ACL and/or MCL. (
  • With knee strains, kids may have bruising around the knee in addition to the symptoms mentioned above for sprains. (
  • Knee ligament sprains or tears are a common sports injury. (
  • However, in ACL grade 3 sprains or ACL tears, the ligament completely severs and the knee becomes unstable. (
  • ACL injuries are sprains or tears in the ligament that can result from a direct impact, a sudden stop or change in direction or an incorrect landing from a jump. (
  • Other causes include synovial plica irritation , pes anserine bursitis and medial ligament sprain which is usually an acute injury, but can develop through repetitive strain such as kicking a ball with the inside of the foot. (
  • Each knee has two menisci - the inside ( medial ) meniscus and the outside ( lateral ) meniscus. (
  • The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is the most commonly injured ligament of the knee. (
  • Schenck type III medial injuries and Schenck IV injuries: anteromedial parapatellar arthrotomy. (
  • The MCL is found on the medial, or inside, part of the knee, and is commonly injured when a force on the lateral side of the knee directs the knee inward," says Dr. Millstein. (
  • Medial knee injuries (those to the inside of the knee) are the most common type of knee injury. (
  • The medial ligament complex of the knee is composed of the superficial medial collateral ligament (sMCL), deep medial collateral ligament (dMCL), and the posterior oblique ligament (POL). (
  • This complex is the major stabilizer of the medial knee. (
  • A thorough understanding of the anatomy and function of the medial knee structures, along with a detailed history and physical exam, are imperative to diagnosing and treating these injuries. (
  • Patients often complain of pain and swelling over the medial aspect of the knee joint. (
  • Jacobson previously described the common problems to medial knee surgery. (
  • Damage to the saphenous nerve and its infrapatellar branch is possible during medial knee surgery, potentially causing numbness or pain over the medial knee and leg. (
  • Medial knee injury is usually caused by a valgus knee force, a tibial external rotation force, or a combination thereof. (
  • The fibula is on the lateral side of the knee and the patella has little effect on the medial side of the knee. (
  • The bony congruity of the medial knee consists of the opposing surfaces of the medial femoral condyle and the medial tibial plateau. (
  • The dMCL is a thickening of the medial aspect of the capsule surrounding the knee. (
  • Medial collateral ligament ( MCL ) injuries of the knee are very common sports-related injuries. (
  • The medial aspect of the knee has been divided into 3 distinct layers based on cadaver dissection. (
  • Stability of the medial side of the knee is provided by dynamic and static restraints. (
  • Medial knee injury: part 1, static function of the individual components of the main medial knee structures. (
  • Medial knee injury: part 2, load sharing between the posterior oblique ligament and superficial medial collateral ligament. (
  • Correlation of valgus stress radiographs with medial knee ligament injuries: an in vitro biomechanical study. (
  • Although they are not technically part of the knee joint, the hamstrings and quadriceps are the muscles that strengthen the leg and help flex the knee. (
  • The quadriceps are four muscles that straighten the knee. (
  • The hamstrings are three muscles at the back of the thigh that bend the knee. (
  • The muscles around the knee include the quadriceps , a group of four muscles at the front of the thigh, and the hamstring , located at the back of the thigh. (
  • The muscles around the knee include the quadriceps, a large muscle at the front of the thigh, and the hamstring, located at the back of the thigh. (
  • Strengthen the muscles adjacent to your knee. (
  • ACLs work with the leg muscles - hamstrings and quadriceps - to stabilize the knee. (
  • This strengthens our muscles, improving our posture whilst reducing our risk of injury and pain. (
  • In addition, neuromuscular electrical stimulation - electrical current that is strong enough to cause a muscle contraction - may be used in conjunction with exercise to help strengthen your thigh muscles as part of knee sprain rehab. (
  • Specific exercises will restore function to your knee and strengthen the leg muscles that support it. (
  • By strengthening and using the hamstrings rather than the quadriceps muscles, women can reduce their risk of ACL injury. (
  • In order to prevent future lower back injuries strength training to the abdominal muscles is necessary to strengthen the abdomen, and to protect the back from excessive intervertebral disk strain. (
  • High impact trauma, such as a fall or car accident, causes most knee fractures . (
  • Knee fractures are most commonly caused by abnormal force, such as a falling on the knee, a severe twisting motion, severe force that bends the knee, or when the knee forcefully hits an object. (
  • In fact, there are some indications that runners with excessive pronation who attempt to transition to a forefoot strike pattern might be more susceptible to inner foot and ankle injuries, while runners with high arches who attempt to transition to a forefoot strike pattern frequently suffer sprained ankles and metatarsal stress fractures. (
  • Many fractures and injuries around the knee require surgery to fully restore function to your leg. (
  • ALL injuries may also be responsible for small fractures that usually are blamed on ACL injuries. (
  • Pain and swelling, difficulty with weight bearing, and instability are the most common symptoms experienced with a knee injury. (
  • Injury to the cartilage will normally produce symptoms of pain, swelling, clicking, sometimes locking and sometimes sensations of instability. (
  • The investigators hypothesized substitution of loading of dexmedetomidine for midazolam could reduce hemodynamic instability during spinal anesthesia for knee arthroscopy. (
  • These complex knee ligament injuries can result in significant functional instability for the affected individual. (
  • The second major class of knee disorder involves a tear, slippage, or dislocation that impairs the structural ability of the knee to balance the leg (patellofemoral instability syndrome). (
  • Knee instability may not be immediately apparent because of swelling. (
  • We know today that a number of patients continue to experience discomfort and instability after knee replacement even despite successful surgery, which may be related to (previously unrealized) damage of the anterolateral ligament during surgical exposure for prosthetic insertion," author Dr. Johan Bellemans, professor of orthopaedic surgery at the Catholic University Leuven in Belgium, told the National Post . (
  • Active and athletic kids might have overuse knee injuries. (
  • Overuse is a significant cause of chronic knee pain, however, biomechanical issues such as overpronation of the foot can make an athlete more susceptible to overuse injuries. (
  • Common causes for injuries are overuse (from repetitive motions, like in many sports), sudden stops or twists, or direct blows to the knee. (
  • This is largely due to the overuse of your knee joint, and the fact that one thing that differentiates treadmill running from outdoor running is that the surface never varies on the treadmill. (
  • Most of the time our body movements do not cause problems, but it's not surprising that symptoms develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or injury. (
  • Patellar tendonitis and patellar tendon tear are injuries that can result from overuse, a forceful impact or an incorrect landing from a jump. (
  • Lateral epicondylitis is an overuse injury that frequently occurs in tennis. (
  • A meniscal tear generally happens during sports where the knee twists, pivots, or an individual is tackled. (
  • A grade 1 sprain is a mild injury to the ACL, while a grade 3 refers to a complete tear. (
  • Damage to the menisci is a really common sports injury, especially in sports where sudden changes in speed or side-to-side movements can cause them to tear. (
  • This is often caused by sports related activities such as being tackled or over-twisting the knee during golf or tennis, but it can also be a result of cumulative wear and tear over time. (
  • The treatment for this type of knee injury varies depending on the type, size and location of the meniscus tear . (
  • When they are stretched too far, however, they can tear - an injury which often occurs when an athlete plants her leg hard, then twists her body. (
  • Most hyperextended knee injuries, not involving a tear to the ligament, require about two to four weeks of rest. (
  • A tear in the rubbery cushions of the knee joint ( meniscus ). (
  • The incidence of ACL injuries among women basketball players is twice that for men, and female soccer players are four times more likely to suffer an ACL tear than their male counterparts, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. (
  • This can put enough force on the shinbone to tear the ACL if the knee isn't bent enough. (
  • I got a knee injury possibly a meniscus tear. (
  • The meniscus can tear either due to injury or due to age-related problems. (
  • Damage to the knee can cause lesions to the articular lining cartilage or hyaline cartilage, which covers the bony surfaces of the knee, or sometimes to both the cartilage and the bone. (
  • In acute injuries where the structure is large and involves articular surface cartilages can be repaired back onto the underlying bone with anchors or sutures. (
  • Sometimes a small piece of bone or articular cartilage softens and/or breaks off from the end of a bone, causing long-term knee pain. (
  • The surface of the bones inside the knee joint is covered by articular cartilage, which absorbs shock and provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint movement. (
  • The third layer is the knee joint capsule, which attaches proximally and distally at the articular margins. (
  • Patellar dislocation happens when the patella (the kneecap) is knocked off to the side of the knee joint by twisting or some kind of impact. (
  • Symptoms include swelling and pain in the front of the knee, an abnormal bulge on the side of the knee, and inability to walk on the leg with the affected knee. (
  • Collateral ligament may be stretched or torn by an impact to the outer side of the knee. (
  • If you look back through history there has been a veiled understanding that something is going on on that side of the knee but this work finally gives us a better understanding," Dr. Joel Melton, a consultant knee surgeon at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, England, told the BBC . (
  • The patella is a small, triangle shaped bone that sits at the front of the knee, within the quadriceps muscle. (
