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.

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.

AbstractPurposeTo assess the percentage of patients achieving symmetrical knee function 6 months after primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) and to identify factors affecting its achievement, in a large cohort.MethodsData were extracted from our clinic database. Patients who underwent primary ACLR from 2000 to 2015 and were assessed with the isokinetic quadriceps and hamstring muscles strength tests and single-leg-hop test at the 6-month follow-up were included in the study. Demographic data, information on the graft used, cartilage injuries and concomitant meniscal surgery were reviewed. Patients ...
Conclusions: The shortest time to RTS and the highest RTS rate were observed after partial meniscectomy. The time to RTS was shorter, and the RTS rate was higher after meniscal repair than after MAT. Concurrent procedures such as ACLR prolonged the time to RTS, but it had no effect on the RTS rate and the level of sports activity at the time of RTS.
