BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to report a modified transtibial technique to approach the center of anatomical femoral footprint in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and to investigate the accurate femoral tunnel position with 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) and radiography after reconstruction. METHODS From December 2010(More)
Damage to the medial meniscus root, for example by a complete radial tear, destroys the ability of the knee to withstand hoop strain, resulting in contact pressure increases and kinematic alterations. For these reasons, several techniques have been developed to repair the medial meniscus posterior root tear (MMPRT), many of which have shown complete healing(More)
PURPOSE This study compared the clinical and radiologic outcomes of arthroscopic medial meniscus root refixation using the modified Mason-Allen stitch and simple stitches. METHODS The outcomes of 25 patients who underwent arthroscopic meniscus root refixation using the modified Mason-Allen stitch (M group) between June 2010 and January 2012 were compared(More)
The optimal treatment for combined osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) with considerable bony defect of the lateral femoral condyle (LFC) and torn discoid lateral meniscus is unclear. We present a case of a 15-year-old female who was a gymnast and had a large OCD lesion in the LFC combined with deficiency of the lateral meniscus. The patient underwent the(More)
