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 ...
There are 11 randomised controlled studies with minimum 24 months follow-up that compare Patellar Tendon and Hamstring single bundle ACL reconstructions. With ACL injury, there is a 10% incidence of concomitant chondral injury and a 53% incidence of meniscal tears. Both patellar tendon and hamstring tendon autografts result in a functionally stable knee in more than 95% of patients at a minimum of 24 months of follow-up. About 19% of patients still have a positive pivot shift phenomenon. 40% of patients still have a positive Lachman test though most of them have a firm end point. Almost 77% of patients have a side-to-side laxity of less than 3 mm. Loss of up to 5 degrees of extension is common. Only 54% of patients have symmetrical extension. Both patellar tendon and Hamstring autografts have comparable results in Lysholm score, Tegner activity level, KT-1000 arthrometer side-to-side laxity measurement, single-legged hop test, or IKDC results. Grade A or B IKDC scores are found in 75%, the ...
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 ...

Reconstruction surgery of anterior cruciate ligament injury of the knee is done through endoscopic surgery called arthroscopic surgery.
The importance of the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) to knee stability can not be overstated. Next in line for importance is proper rehabilitation after an ACL injury and surgery. Lets start with the basics. The ACL is responsible for keeping your knee from sliding or twisting behind your hamstring. If the ACL is
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 ...

Case Report: An adolescent male child presented with twisting injury to right
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. Such long term knee injuries can be caused due to various conditions and for each of these conditions, a specific treatment is done. At times, you can be advised to use an adjustable knee brace as a part of treatment.. Not everyone with a chronic knee pain will have same kind of experiences.. You should not confuse chronic knee pain with a temporary knee pain because chronic knee pain does not go away so easily unless it is treated properly and there can be multiple conditions due to which the knee is suffering whereas a temporary knee pain can be caused due to an accident or some injury.. There are several factors which can worsen a long term knee injury:. ...
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the four main ligaments in the knee. It binds the back of the thigh bone (femur) to the front of the shin bone (tibia).way.
The anterior cruciate ligament runs from the back of the femur (thigh bone) diagonally down to the front of the tibia (shin bone). Its role is to stop the tibia sliding forward away from the femur when a force is placed from below it. It is commonly caused by a twisting movement being placed through the knee whilst the foot is planted. It can also occur from a tackle.. Symptoms:. ...
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 ...
Canine Full CCL Tears: Physical Therapy for Full Cruciate Ligament Tears. What Is the Best Treatment and Can Physical Therapy Help?
Despite intense study of anterior cruciate ligament injury during the past three decades, the mechanisms of this injury have not been clearly defined. A recent study by the Principle Investigator identified differences in leg alignment when a single leg landing during a sports activity resulted in a torn ACL and when it did not (provocative versus control alignment, respectively).. The purpose of the study is to quantify the tibiofemoral alignment in the lateral compartment of the knee in the provocative landing position and the control landing position. in order to elucidate possible mechanisms of ACL injury Material and Methods: 25 normal controls will be recruited from the greater Washington DC population. Magnetic resonance images in the sagittal plane will be acquired for a single leg of each subject. These images will cover the lateral compartment of the knee and will be acquired with the leg in three positions, one that emulates the injury position, one that exagerrates the injury ...
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 ...

  • Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee frequently leads to early-onset osteoarthritis, a painful condition that can occur even if the patient has undergone ACL reconstruction to prevent its onset. (
  • Massage therapy as a stand-alone treatment reduced pain and improved function in the short-term in those with shoulder pain and knee osteoarthritis when compared with no treatment. (
  • Joint pain can be caused by osteoarthritis, injury, prolonged abnormal posture, or repetitive motion. (

  • Melanie had torn the cartilage in her knee and would need total knee replacement surgery, her doctor said. (
  • Your knee joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. (
  • Muscles and tendons help the knee joint move. (
  • The knee is a complex joint in the leg consisting of a combination of bones (femur, fibula, tibia, patella), four ligaments to stabilize the knee, tendons attaching muscles to the bones of the knee joint, muscles (quadriceps) allowing athletic movement, cartilages (menisci) padding the knee cap to cushion force, nerves, and blood vessels. (
  • Athletes exert the knee when competing and can stress the bones, overuse or overextend the muscles, pinch the nerves or affect circulation within the joint. (
  • A more serious twisting of the knee joint may often occur when the player is planting or pivoting a foot to change direction, and the knee is then unexpectedly struck from the opposite direction. (
  • The ACL connects the tibia to the femur (thigh bone), and is the ligament in the knee responsible for ensuring the stability of the center of the joint. (
  • The surface of the bones inside the knee joint is covered by articular cartilage. (
  • Knee joint dislocation. (
  • This causes pain and decreased movement when a piece of bone or cartilage (or both) inside the knee joint loses blood supply and dies. (
  • The ACL is a tough, flexible band of tissues that runs through the middle of the knee joint. (
  • Other symptoms include swelling, clicking sound in the knee, locking of the knee joint, and weakness around the knee area. (
  • For instance, if your ankle joint isn't in an optimal range, the forces will lead up the kinetic chain to the knee. (
  • Your knees are the most vulnerable joint in your body. (
  • Injuries to the knee joint can happen easily, but there are ways to avoid the damage. (
  • Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball provided a grim update on his lingering knee injury the day before he undergoes another procedure on the joint. (
  • However, the following factors can put you at a higher risk of spraining or tearing any ligament of your knee joint. (
  • The bones which meet to form your knee joint are the kneecap (patella), the thigh bone (femur) and shinbone (tibia). (
  • Your doctor physically examines the knee joint and its mobility. (
  • Stabilize your knee joint with a compression bandage and wearing a brace. (
  • The stability of the knee joint is completely dependent on the ligaments and the muscles. (
  • The energy and severity of these injuries encompass a wide range from low-energy single-joint mechanisms to high-energy polytrauma settings. (
  • Knee is a major weight bearing and largest joint that provides mobility and stability during physical activities as well as balance while standing. (
  • Thus, acceptance of MRI findings as false positive is controversial.CONCLUSIONSMRI is a useful non-invasive modality having high diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity and negative predictive value making it a very reliable screening test for diagnosis of internal derangements of knee joint. (
  • The knee is a complex joint, exposed to forces that can exceed five times the weight of the body. (
  • Although such models have been presented previously, we emphasise the need to use a comprehensive model, which accounts for the events leading to the injury situation (playing situation, player and opponent behaviour), as well as to include a description of whole body and joint biomechanics at the time of injury. (
  • WOmen are 60% more likely to experience joint pain Did you know that female athletes suffer knee injuries five to six times more often than males? (
  • If an individual has legs of differing lengths, or favors one leg because of pain or an old injury, the uneven load can stress the sacroiliac joint. (
  • A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT . (
  • Her knee joint was bone-on-bone, meaning the cartilage had worn away, and she was in terrible pain. (
  • Rupture of the tendon will prevent the athlete from using the knee because the muscle detaches from the bone causing tightness and increased swelling. (
  • The injury could be what lay people call a bone bruise. (
  • Jumper's knee' is a common overuse-related injury to the patella tendon, the fibrous linkage running beneath the knee cap to the tibia (shin bone). (
  • Your MCL is the ligament that gives stability to the inner knee, while the ACL, which is located in the center of the knee, controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia, or shin bone. (
  • Embiid missed a chunk of time during the regular season due to a bone bruise in his left knees, making him more vulnerable given that this latest injury is on the right knee. (
  • Surgical intervention may be needed if there are no signs of improvement, if a piece of the bone breaks away completely, or if there is an underlying condition that causes osteochondritis dissecans such as bow legs or knock knees. (
  • ACL connects the thigh bone or femur to the shin bone or tibia on the inside, in front of the knee. (
  • It prevents the shin bone from sliding in front of the thighbone, and also controls the rotation of the knee. (
  • LCL connects the thigh bone to the fibula on the lateral side - outside - of the knee. (
  • MCL connects the thigh bone to the shin bone on the inside of the knee. (
  • Due to its wide range of functions it is exposed to forces beyond its physiological range, and thus bone and soft tissue of knee are at risk of injuries. (
  • Most of the load transmitted across the knee is medial to the eminence, and therefore, the knee has stronger cancellous bone. (
  • Her right knee is increasingly unstable, and she wears a knee brace for all activities. (
  • Wearing a protective knee brace during exercise: "The debate goes on about whether or not bracing is effective for minimizing ligament injuries," he says. (
  • Cardinals TE Zach Ertz, spotted in a brace after Arizona's win, is expected to miss multiple weeks with the knee injury he suffered today, per source. (

  • The Schenck classification is one of the classification schemes used to describe the pattern of MLKI with knee dislocation (KD) ( Table 1 ). (
  • [ 7 ] In 1981, Moore proposed a classification system for fracture-dislocation of the tibial condyle that took into consideration soft-tissue injury. (
  • A knee ligament injury is a sprain to any or a combination of the ligaments of the knee. (
  • Symptoms of a torn ligament are a snapping sound and unstable knee making it hard to walk. (
  • But sometimes symptoms develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or injury. (
  • Signs and symptoms of a PCL injury include pain in the knee that causes a slight limp or difficulty walking, swelling of the knees within hours of the injury and a general feeling of your knees feeling loose. (
  • The symptoms vary with the severity of the injury. (
  • Cowboys owner Jerry Jones immediately after the game expressed concern about the severity of the injury, and further tests Monday confirmed that. (
  • There are three levels of severity to all types of knee ligament injuries. (
  • Your physiotherapist will plan the types of exercise based on the severity of your injury. (
  • Although the energy of the injury varies, the severity of the injury has been shown to not correlate with the amount of energy absorbed. (
  • Knee strength capabilities and slip severity. (
  • Therefore, the study goal was to investigate the relationship between knee flexion/extension strength and slip severity. (
  • There are fears that Limerick defender Mike Casey may have suffered another cruciate ligament injury while playing for Na Piarsaigh in their Munster club SHC semi-final defeat to Ballygunner. (
  • Pain, bruising, or swelling may be severe and occur within minutes of the injury. (
  • Examples include falling on the knee, a severe twisting motion, severe force that bends the knee, and the knee forcefully hitting an object. (
  • If the injury appears severe, the athlete needs further evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon or a non-operative sports medicine physician. (
  • Also referred to as mild sprain, is the least severe form of injury. (
  • Police say the boy is in a critical condition, while the girl has severe injuries. (
  • In conclusion, the ability to generate higher, more rapid knee flexion/ extension muscle moments (greater peak torque/RTD) may assist in recovery from severe slips. (
  • The injury was so severe that Abdullah's leg had to be amputated above the knee. (
  • The cartilage in the knee gradually wears away, causing pain and swelling. (
  • If the knee grinds then locks when trying to bend it, the cartilage may be damaged. (
  • Having arthritis and a cartilage tear can cause your knee to develop too much fluid leading to a Baker's cyst. (
  • The nature of these athletic movements creates a wide variety of forces upon the basketball player's body, which in turn creates an equally broad range of potential athletic injuries. (
  • Knee problems are very common, and they occur in people of all ages. (
  • Knee problems and injuries most often occur during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or home projects. (
  • Overuse injuries occur with repetitive activities or repeated or prolonged pressure on the knee. (
  • Problems not directly related to an injury or overuse may occur in or around the knee. (
  • The media may shine a light on season-ending ACL injuries, but you should know this: if you don't take preventative measures, there are many other injuries that can occur in your knees both acutely and over time. (
  • Knee ligament injuries can also occur in situations outside of sports, like in a car crash or bike accident. (
  • Injury to more than one knee ligament is called a multiligament knee injury and may occur during sports or other physical activities. (
  • [ 2 ] Dislocations can occur from a variety of mechanisms, including high-energy traumas, sports injuries, and lower energy mechanisms. (
  • It provides stability to the outside of the knee. (
  • The stability of the knee is not particularly affected, however, it should still be treated as it can increase the tendency of a repeat injury. (
  • Practice strengthening exercises to improve knee stability. (
  • Sudden (acute) injuries may be caused by a direct blow to the knee. (
  • It's one of the most alarming injuries an athlete can experience, something that sports medicine specialist Michael Salata, MD calls an "acute event" that usually happens in a game-stopping single play. (
  • Studies from Scandinavia document that sports injuries constitute 10-19% of all acute injuries treated in the emergency room, 3, 4 and the most common injury types are knee and ankle injuries. (
  • Prospective validation of a decision rule for the use of radiography in acute knee injuries. (
  • Multicenter comparison of two clinical decision rules for the use of radiography in acute, high-risk knee injuries. (
  • Ertz will miss multiple weeks after he was carted off the field early during Arizona's 27-17 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday afternoon with a knee injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. (
  • We wanted to study MRI appearances of cruciate ligaments and meniscal tears in cases of knee injuries and correlate the MRI findings of knee injury with clinical observations/other radiological investigations/ arthroscopic findings. (
  • Knee problems can interfere with many things, from participation in sports to simply getting up from a chair and walking. (
  • ACL and other knee injuries are common sports injuries . (
  • Trained sports professionals and physiotherapists can help athletes learn how to reduce knee injury. (
  • According to Dr. T.O. Souryal, the former head physician for the Mavericks for more than 22 years who hosts his own show on ESPN Radio in Dallas called "Inside Sports Medicine," injuries like the one suffered by Dez Bryant run a spectrum. (
