Miach Orthopaedics touts results of two-year study on ACL repair
Miach Orthopaedics said that a study of its bio-engineered implant for autograft anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair revealed results similar to those achieved by traditional ACL repair surgeries two years post-procedure. The non-randomized, two-arm study conducted at Boston Children’s Hospital enrolled 10 patients treated with Miach Orthopaedics’ bridging scaffold-enhanced ACL repair (BEAR) implant with hamstring autograft ACL reconstruction and was conducted under an FDA Investigational Device Exemption. The BEAR implant was designed to be surgically placed between the torn ACL ends at the time of repair, and to hold a small amount of the patient’s blood in the wound site. This provides a scaffold that allows the torn ends of the ACL to heal back together. Get the full story on our sister site, Medical Design and Outsourcing.

ConclusionsDistal hamstring tendon avulsion is a rare condition, with no consensus regarding optimal management options. Acute surgical repair leads to excellent results, with a return to pre-injury level of sporting activity.Level of evidenceIV.
We describe a technique combining the advantages of both techniques with an autograft using the semitendinosus and repair of the remnant. This combined technique allows protection and redirection of the remnant, improves graft incorporation, and covers more graft by suturing the remnant around an autologous graft.
Conclusion: The patients treated with QT autograft had clinical results and post-operative pain similar to those of patients treated with HT autograft for ACL reconstruction. PMID: 31967599 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionsPostoperative quadriceps strength index at 6 months after double-bundle ACL reconstruction with hamstring tendon autografts was affected by preoperative quadriceps strength index. Adequate preoperative quadriceps strength may need to be considered in order to facilitate better recovery of quadriceps strength after ACL reconstruction and to s upport an earlier return to sports activities.
CONCLUSION: This rehabilitation programme after ACL repair with IBLA successfully enabled a professional soccer player to return to his pre-injury playing level. PMID: 31373377 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This article details our technique for performing a modified Lemaire lateral extra-articular tenodesis using iliotibial band autograft as an adjunct to ACL reconstruction.

Overall, 126 patie...
ConclusionMore than 60% of the patients reported an acceptable symptom state on four of the five KOOS subscales 2 years after primary ACLR. Age ≥ 30 years and female gender were the non-modifiable factors that consistently increased and reduced, respectively, the odds of achieving a PASS. A symmetrical 6-month isokinetic quadriceps strength and single-leg-hop test performance were the modifiable factor s that consistently increased the opportunity of achieving a PASS 2 years after primary ACLR.Level of evidenceIII.
Unsatisfactory long-term results with synthetic grafts for anterior crucial ligament (ACL) reconstruction led knee surgeons to switch to more stable, better compatible and longer lasting autografts . As urogynecologists nowadays are confronted with similar challenges regarding synthetic meshes, intellectual cross-fertilization between orthopedics and gynecologists could help solving these problems. Because native tissue repair is less effective in apical prolapse surgery, currently used repairing techniques for pelvic organ prolapse in Europe mostly employ synthetic meshes .
CONCLUSION: In conclusion, similar clinical results, in terms of stability and subjective measures, can be obtained after ACL reconstruction both with a free quadriceps and a 4-strand hamstring tendons autograft.
