BACKGROUND: Bone-patellar tendon-bone (bone-tendon-bone) and four-strand hamstring tendon grafts (hamstring) are the most commonly utilized autografts for primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Existing clinical trials, registry studies, and meta-analyses offer conflicting opinions regarding the most favorable graft choice.

QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Which graft type for ACL reconstruction (bone-tendon-bone or hamstring) has a higher risk of (1) graft rupture and/or (2) graft ...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and concomitant medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries are known to occur during dynamic athletic tasks that place combinatorial frontal and transverse plane loads on the knee. A mechanical impact simulator that produces clinical presentation of ACL injury allows for the quantification of individual loading contributors leading to ACL failure.

PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS: The objective was to delineate the relationship between knee abduction ...

The purpose of this study was to determine if quadriceps strength and functional outcomes were similar at 6 months following anterior cruciate ligament [ACL] reconstruction in patients receiving a continuous 48-hour femoral nerve blockade for postoperative analgesia (FNB group) versus patients with no FNB (control group). A retrospective cohort was designed including athletes who underwent primary ACL reconstruction with patellar tendon autograft between 2005 and 2010 at our institution ...

BACKGROUND: There is a paucity of clinical information to guide the treatment of a combined anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear and Segond fracture.

PURPOSE: To compare clinical outcomes, graft failure rates, and activity levels between patients undergoing ACL reconstruction (ACLR) with and without an untreated Segond fracture at a minimum 2-year follow-up.

STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3.

METHODS: This study included a group of patients with a combined ACL ...

BACKGROUND: There is limited information regarding direct comparisons of the outcome of osteochondral autograft transfer (OAT) mosaicplasty and microfracture for the treatment of isolated articular cartilage defects of the knee. The purpose of this retrospective comparative study was to compare the general health outcomes, knee function, and Marx Activity Rating Scale scores for patients treated with OAT or microfracture for symptomatic chondral defects of the femoral condyles or ...

BACKGROUND: Peroneal nerve palsy is a frequent and potentially disabling complication of multiligament knee dislocation, but little information exists on the degree to which patients recover motor or sensory function after this injury, and whether having this nerve injury--with or without complete recovery--is a predictor of inferior patient-reported outcome scores.

QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purposes of this study were to (1) report on motor and sensory recovery as well as patient-reported ...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this prospective randomized study was to compare the outcomes of arthroscopic labral repair and selective labral debridement in female patients undergoing arthroscopy for the treatment of pincer-type or combined pincer- and cam-type femoroacetabular impingement.

METHODS: Between June 2007 and June 2009, 36 female patients undergoing arthroscopic hip treatment for pincer- or combined-type femoroacetabular impingement were randomized to 2 treatment groups at the ...

BACKGROUND: Female soccer players have a well-known risk for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, but few studies have reported on second ACL injuries in this population.

PURPOSE: To (1) report the rates of subsequent ACL injury (ipsilateral graft rupture or contralateral tear) in competitive female soccer players, (2) compare these rates with those of other female athletes of similar competitive level, (3) determine risk factors for second ACL injury, and (4) report clinical outcome ...

BACKGROUND: Medial meniscus root tears are a common knee injury and can lead to accelerated osteoarthritis, which might ultimately result in a total knee replacement.

PURPOSE: To compare meniscus repair, meniscectomy, and nonoperative treatment approaches among middle-aged patients in terms of osteoarthritis development, total knee replacement rates (clinical effectiveness), and cost-effectiveness.

STUDY DESIGN: Meta-analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis.

METHODS: A systematic ...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears may potentially prevent the development of secondary meniscal injuries and arthritis.

PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of this study was to (1) evaluate the protective benefit of ACL reconstruction (ACLR) in preventing subsequent meniscal tears or arthritis, (2) determine if earlier ACLR (<1 year after injury) offers greater protective benefits than delayed reconstruction (≥1 year after injury), and (3) evaluate factors ...

BACKGROUND: There are sparse data available regarding outcome of meniscal repair performed at the time of ACL reconstruction in the pediatric and adolescent population.

PURPOSE: To review the results of meniscal repair performed at the time of ACL reconstruction in pediatric and adolescent patients.

STUDY DESIGN: Case series; Level of evidence, 4.

METHODS: The records of all patients age 18 years or younger who underwent meniscal repair at the time of ACL reconstruction between 1990 and ...

PurposeThe purpose of this study is to assess the reliability of measuring the tibial tubercle to posterior cruciate (TT-PCL) distance compared to the tibial tubercle to trochlear groove (TT-TG) distance on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), establish baseline TT-PCL values in patellar instability patients, and determine the predictive value of an excessive TT-PCL distance (≥24 mm) for recurrent patellar instability compared to a TT-TG distance ≥20 mm.MethodsTT-TG and TT-PCL distances ...

BACKGROUND: The lateral tibial posterior slope (LTPS) has been reported in multiple studies to correlate with an increased risk for native anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tearing. To date, no study has examined the effect of an increased LTPS as measured on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on the likelihood of ACL graft failure.

HYPOTHESIS: An increased LTPS as measured on MRI would correlate with an increased risk for ACL graft failure.

STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study; Level of ...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are catastrophic events that affect athletic careers and lead to long-term degenerative knee changes. As injuries are believed to occur within the first 50 milliseconds after initial contact during a rapid deceleration task, impact simulators that rapidly deliver impulse loads to cadaveric specimens have been developed. However, no impactor has reproducibly and reliably created ACL injures in a distribution that mimics clinical ...

BACKGROUND: Tibial tubercle-trochlear groove distance (TT-TG) is a commonly used measurement for surgical decision making in patients with patellofemoral malalignment and instability. This measurement has historically been performed utilizing axial computed tomography (CT). More recently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been proposed as an equivalent method, but this has not yet been fully validated.

PURPOSE: To determine the reliability of TT-TG distance measurements on both MRI ...
