Does Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction prevent or initiate Knee Osteoarthritis? -A critical review
Publication date: Available online 13 July 2019Source: Journal of Arthroscopy and Joint SurgeryAuthor(s): Raju Vaishya, Maduka Celestine Okwuchukwu, Amit Kumar Agarwal, Vipul VijayAbstractAnterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries are common in the knee and are often caused by sports injuries. These injuries are common among the young population of the society and are significant causes of morbidity and functional impairment. Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction (ACLR) is considered as a gold standard in the management of ACL injuries. ACLR has been shown to restore the joint stability, and improve the functional outcome.

Is there a difference in treatment outcome for monomicrobial and polymicrobial periprosthetic joint infections? Systematic review and study quality analysis
ConclusionsQuantitative analysis demonstrated that although polymicrobial infections have been identified as a risk factor for failure after a PJI, they did not result in significantly worse outcomes after treatment. Though not statistically significant, polymicrobial PJI with gram negative organisms typically resulted in poorer outcomes as compared to PJI with gram positive organisms. Antibiotic coverage should be evaluated to ensure proper coverage of such gram-negative organisms.Level of evidenceSystematic Review of Level III Studies.
