AbstractPurposeBone tunnel widening following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is well documented, although the aetiology and clinical significance of this phenomenon remain unclear. At mid-term follow-up, a greater prevalence of tunnel enlargement has been reported with the use of hamstring (HS) grafts. However, there are paucity of data on what happens in the longer term. The aim of this study was to assess the change in femoral and tibial tunnel dimensions 15  years after four-strand HS ACLR.MethodsThis is a retrospective review of 15 patients who underwent arthroscopic ACLR using HS autograft tendo...

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.

ConclusionBimeniscal replacement by an allograft and/or substitute provides good short-term functional and anatomical outcomes. Nevertheless, this procedure is warranted only in highly selected patients.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective study.

The standard of care for ACL tears is a surgical intervention to reconstruct the ACL to restore knee functionality as well as quality of life. In recent years, bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) has seen increasing use in various orthopaedic settings. This increase can be attribu...

Conclusion: Psychological factors are important (and may require targeted input), but return-to-sport is multifactorial. Ongoing symptoms may prompt further surgery, but this is frequently unsuccessful in achieving return. Patient-specific goals should be sought and revisited throughout the rehabilitation program. Acknowledging psychological barriers, in those aiming to return to the same level, may help achieve this goal. In other patients, success may be return to a desired lower level. Understanding the patient's expectations is important in goal setting.

AbstractBackgroundQuadriceps tendon (QT) autograft is emerging as a popular technique for primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Studies have shown that it has comparable outcomes to bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) and hamstring tendon (HT) autografts while mitigating post-operative complications associated with these grafts.PurposeTo provide a literature summary of the important pre- and post-operative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of the quadriceps tendon and pertinent postoperative complications associated with the QT harvest. Radiologists should be familiar with MR findings after autologo...

Authors: Chen TZ, Wang YS, Li XS Abstract Introduction: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury always leads to knee pain and dysfunction for which surgical reconstruction is recommended, with good clinical results, but decreased postoperative proprioception also tends to occur. ACL stump (ACLS)-retaining ACL reconstruction and non-ACLS-retaining ACL reconstruction are the two surgical options. Aim: To investigate the efficacy of retaining the ACLS in allograft reconstruction. Material and methods: Thirty patients were retrospectively assigned to group A, ACLS-retaining ACL reconstruction; and group B, non-...

ConclusionsAnatomic ACL reconstruction could restore not only the normal anterior knee laxity, but also the normal tibiofemoral relationship even under an anterior tibial load.
