All-Inside Single-Bundle Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament with the Anterior Half of the Peroneus Longus Tendon Compared to the Semitendinosus Tendon: A Two-Year Follow-Up Study

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1627466The anterior half of the peroneus longus tendon (AHPLT) has been reported to be acceptable for ligament reconstruction with respect to strength and safety. However, there is little information regarding the clinical outcomes after using the AHPLT compared with other autograft tendons. A prospective randomized controlled study was performed to compare the results of 62 cases of all-inside anatomical single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using the AHPLT and 62 cases using semitendinosus graft with an average of 30.0 ± 3.6 months' follow-up. Tunnel placements of enrolled cases were measured on three-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) and X-ray imaging. Knee stability was assessed using the anterior drawer test, pivot shift test, and KT-1000. The International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) 2000 subjective score was used to evaluate functional outcomes. The American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Score (AOFAS) and the assessment of eversion muscle strength were performed to evaluate the function of the ankle donor site. Tunnel positions, which were confirmed with 3D CT, were in the anatomical positions. At the final follow-up, there were no significant differences between the semitendinosus group and the AHPLT group in the IKDC score (90.4 ± 7.1 vs. 89.3. ± 8.4), KT 1000 measurements (1.71 ± 0.57 vs. 1.85 ± ...

In conclusion, BPTB grafts showed significantly better anterior knee stability than HT grafts, although no significant differences in other objective evaluations and all subjective evaluations were detected between the two graft types in anatomical ACLR. Additional 3D CT data validated the anatomical concepts of these two procedures.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate bone tunnel changes following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction during the early postoperative period using computed tomography (CT), and to understand the impact of postoperative immobilization on these changes.

ConclusionThe present study showed greater enlargement of the femoral bone tunnel when a bioabsorbable trans-tunnel pin system was used with the medial portal technique when compared to extracortical fixation. These findings confirm that femoral tunnel widening should be considered when RigidFix was used in ACL reconstruction by anteromedial portal technique.Level of evidenceIII.

ConclusionThe present study demonstrates that there is a high incidence of partially anatomic placed tunnels in failed SB ACL reconstruction. Tunnel width was not associated with tunnel position. Clinically, partially anatomic bone tunnels frequently require a staged procedure with bone grafting and subsequent ACL revision surgery. Thus, surgeons should carefully analyse tunnel position and width preoperatively to properly plan ACL revision surgery.

ConclusionsResults from the present study indicate that donor site pain, a disturbing long-term side effect of bone-patellar tendon-bone surgery, is significantly reduced if bone buildup in the patella and the tibia is augmented by serum albumin-coated bone allografts.

CONCLUSIONS: A single-stage approach for revision ACL reconstruction using allograft dowels for isolated femoral bony deficiency yields objective and subjective outcomes comparable to those reported in the literature for two-stage and other single-stage techniques, with good incorporation of the dowels. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Retrospective case series, level IV. PMID: 27355284 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: This report of 4 patients demonstrates that growth arrest following ACL reconstruction in skeletally immature patients is a real concern and highlights the importance of careful preoperative evaluation and discussion with patients and family members. We routinely obtain long-leg AP and lateral hip-to-ankle films on skeletally immature patients before performing an ACL reconstruction and then at 6 and 12 months postoperatively or every 6 months until the growth plates are closed to assess leg lengths and lower extremity alignment. Level of Evidence: Level IV—therapeutic study, case series.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of tendon graft type and surgical fixation technique on bone tunnel remodeling in patients with symptomatic knees after ACL reconstruction. METHODS: in a retrospective study 99mTc-HDP bone tracer uptake (BTU) in SPECT/CT of 57 knees with symptoms of pain and/or instability after ACL reconstruction was investigated. All 57 knees were subdivided according their anatomy (femur and tibia), fixation (articular versus extra-articular fixation) and graft types into eight groups: femoral-articular versus extra-articular fixation using bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) an...

Background: The common fresh-frozen allografts that are used for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions behave slower during the remodeling process and produce weaker tendon-bone integrations than do autografts. Decellularization of allogenic tendons results in a clean and porous collagen scaffold with low antigenicity and high compatibility, which may be more suitable for ACL reconstructions. Hypothesis: Allograft decellularization will result in a tissue structure with suitable mechanical characteristics for ACL reconstruction, thereby promoting graft remodeling and enhancing tendon-bone healing.

The purpose of this study was to quantify changes in volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) in the tibial plateau of the operated and contralateral leg measured using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) before and 3, 6 and 12 months after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The ACL was reconstructed with a hamstring tendon autograft using press‐fit fixation. pQCTmeasurements of the proximal tibia were obtained in 61 patients after ACL reconstruction, and total, cortical and trabecular vBMDwere calculated.vBMD in the operated leg decreased from baseline to 3 months (‐12% (total), ‐11% (cort...
