Trapezoidal Achilles Tendon Allograft Plug for Revision Quadriceps Tendon Repair With a Large Tendon Defect

Publication date: Available online 11 September 2019Source: Arthroscopy TechniquesAuthor(s): Kyle N. Kunze, Robert A. Burnett, Kevin K. Shinsako, Charles A. Bush-Joseph, Brian J. Cole, Jorge ChahlaAbstractRevision quadriceps tendon repair presents a challenging problem for the treating surgeon because of associated anatomic defects such as large tendon-gap deficits and preexistent poor tissue quality. Current methods for revision quadriceps tendon repair use tendon autograft, which may predispose to additional morbidity because the repair relies only on soft tissue fixation. In this Technical Note, we describe a technique for revision of a failed quadriceps tendon repair with a large tendon gap using a trapezoidal plug Achilles tendon allograft. This technique constitutes a safe and effective approach to revising failed primary quadriceps tendon repairs, is suitable for large-gap defects, and has the ability to withstand large force transmissions.

Coady, Ivan WongAbstractRecurrent instability after anterior shoulder stabilization surgery is not an uncommon complication, with variable rates of recurrences associated with different surgical procedures. The Latarjet procedure continues to be the gold standard in the management of anterior instability with significant glenoid bone loss, although a recent trend toward arthroscopic anatomic glenoid reconstruction (AAGR) with distal tibial allograft has been noted, with excellent short-term results and minim...

Recent studies have shown that superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) in massive irreparable rotator cuff tears results in better clinical scores and preserves stable glenohumeral stability without significant complications. In this article, we propose a simple, efficient SCR te...

We describe our modified technique for quadriceps tendon repair using a semitendinosus tendon autograft, with suturing of the quadriceps tendon stump to the patella via transosseous sutures, wherein the use of allograft and anchors is avoided. Our modified Pulvertaft weave technique is simple and reproducible.

Fresh osteochondral allografting has gained popularity as a useful technique for managing difficult cartilage repair problems and, in revision situations, is a treatment of choice when other procedures such as microfracture, osteochondral autograft transfer, and cell-based therapies fail. However, it is a challenge when an allograft fails. Absent substantial progression of osteoarthritis, revising with another allograft results in a reasonable chance of "success" (but a high likelihood of further surgery along the way).

ConclusionsSuture tape augmentation of the MPFL resulted in similar primary contact pressures and joint kinematics in comparison with MPFL reconstruction using a tendon graft. A pretension of 2  N was found to restore the knee joint closest to normal patellofemoral kinematics.

This study aims to study the publication trends in articular cartilage repair (ACR) techniques, over the last 10 years. A literature search was performed on the PubMed, Web of Science, and SCOPUS databases. We used suitable keywords and Boolean operators (articular cartilage injury AND “marrow stimulation OR microfracture (MFx),” “osteochondral autograft,” “osteochondral allograft” and “autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI),” “scaffold”), on January 1, 2019. Trends in publication on these topics were analyzed, focusing on publications over the last 10 years, t...

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1692999Osteochondral autograft transplantation (OAT) is a surgical option for repairing cartilage damage in knees, and can be performed using open or arthroscopic procedures. The aim of this review was to report clinical outcomes, postoperative complications, defect location, and defect size between open and arthroscopic OATs. Three electronic databases (EMBASE, PUBMED, and MEDLINE) were searched for relevant articles. In regard to eligibility criteria, knee articular damage cases solely treated with OAT were included and cases concomitant with ligament reconstruction, limb realignment, and ...
