Korean Version of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament-Return to Sport after Injury Scale: Translation and Cross-cultural Adaptation.

Korean Version of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament-Return to Sport after Injury Scale: Translation and Cross-cultural Adaptation. Clin Orthop Surg. 2019 Jun;11(2):164-169 Authors: Ha JK, Kim JG, Yoon KH, Wang JH, Seon JK, Bae JH, Jang KM Abstract Background: To translate into Korean and culturally adapt the anterior cruciate ligament-return to sports after injury (ACL-RSI) scale assessing psychological readiness to return to sports after ACL reconstruction and to validate its psychometric properties. Methods: The ACL-RSI scale was forward translated into Korean and back-translated into English for cultural adaptation according to the standardized guideline. For validation, the Korean version of the ACL-RSI (ACL-RSI Kr) was administered to patients who underwent ACL reconstruction. The following subjective questionnaires were also administered: International Knee Documentation Committee Subjective Knee Evaluation Form (IKDC-SKF), Lysholm scale, Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), and a Return to Sports Questionnaire. Test-retest reliability, internal consistency, content validity, construct validity, and discriminant validity of the ACL-RSI Kr were assessed. Results: A total of 129 patients (102 men and 27 women) were included in the study. Their mean age was 28.3 years. The average follow-up duration was 13.2 months. Test-retest reliability was remarkable (intraclass correlation coefficient, 0.949), internal consistency was high (Cr...

Abstract CONTEXT: Ultrasound imaging provides a cost-effective method of measuring quadriceps morphology, which may be related to self-reported function after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). OBJECTIVE: To compare quadriceps morphology and strength between limbs in individuals with ACLR and matched control limbs and determine their associations with self-reported function. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Research laboratory. PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS: Forty-two individuals with ACLR (females = 66%; age = 21.8 ± 2.6 years; time since ACLR = 50.5 ± 29.4...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAnterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is one of the most common ligamentous injuries suffered by athletes participating in cutting sports. A common misperception is that ACL reconstruction can prevent osteoarthritis (OA). The goal of this paper is to review and discuss the contributing factors for the development of OA following ACL injury.Recent FindingsThere has been interesting new research related to ACL reconstruction. As understanding of knee biomechanics following ACL injury and reconstruction has changed over time, many surgeons have changed their surgical techniques to low anterior drill...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Arthroscopy Techniques, Volume 8, Issue 12Author(s): Alberto Gobbi, Katarzyna Herman, Radosław Grabowski, Dawid SzwedowskiAbstractIt is well known that the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the main stabilizer to the anterior tibial translation in the knee. The current gold standard of treatment for such lesions is ACL reconstruction. However, there are notable disadvantages to ACL reconstruction that include loss of proprioception, donor site morbidity, incomplete return to high-demand sports, and the inability to restore normal kinematics of the knee joint. Additionally, in adole...
