BACKGROUND Meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) has produced good to excellent results in the general population; however, few investigations have examined MAT in athletes and sport-related outcomes. PURPOSE To report midterm clinical outcomes of MAT and the rate of return to sport in a physically active population. STUDY DESIGN Case series; Level(More)
To report the medium-term clinical and radiographic outcomes of a group of patients who underwent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery combined with high tibial osteotomy (HTO) for varus-related early medial osteoarthritis (OA) and ACL deficiency knee. Thirty-two patients underwent single-bundle over-the-top ACL reconstruction or revision surgery and a(More)
Good clinical results have been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies using the collagen meniscus implant (CMI); however, the MRI behaviour of the scaffold, evaluated with Genovese score, is limited to a few cases series. The purpose was to evaluate, using the Genovese score, the MRI behaviour of the CMI at different follow-up periods and investigate(More)
The patellofemoral joint, due to its particular bone anatomy and the numerous capsuloligamentous structures and muscles that act dynamically on the patella, is considered one of the most complex joints in the human body from the biomechanical point of view. The medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) has been demonstrated to contribute 60% of the force that(More)
The main goal of this work was to evaluate the pivot shift test in awake and anesthetized patients by using two different quantitative methodologies and comparing the results with the standard clinical grading, taking advantage of a multicenter international study. Patients between 16 and 50 years of age undergoing primary unilateral single-bundle anterior(More)
The hypothesis was that an alteration of different surgical variables of ACL reconstruction would produce significant changes in post-operative static laxity of knee joint. Joint laxity was acquired by a surgical navigation system for 17 patients just after graft fixation during single-bundle reconstruction with extra-articular lateral tenodesis. The(More)
The pivot shift test is an important clinical tool used to assess the stability of the knee following an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Previous studies have shown that significant variability exists in the performance and interpretation of this manoeuvre. Accordingly, a variety of techniques aimed at standardizing and quantifying the pivot(More)
BACKGROUND There are few published studies with very long-term follow-up of combined intra- and extra-articular anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. PURPOSE To analyze clinical and radiographic outcomes of over-the-top ACL reconstruction plus extra-articular lateral tenodesis with autologous hamstrings at minimum 20-year follow-up. STUDY(More)
PURPOSE To quantitatively describe the kinematic behaviour of the hip joint with particular interest in the contribution of the periarticular soft tissues to the stability. To quantitatively assess the sealing function of the acetabular labrum of an intact labrum, the effect of a labral-chondral separation and different surgical approaches. The biomechanics(More)
The main purpose of this article was to describe in detail, from the perspective of the clinical end user, a previously presented non-invasive methodology, applied in the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament injury, in which inertial sensors are used to quantify the pivot shift test. The outcomes obtained and relative considerations were compared with(More)
