Primary Repair for Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
TLDR
The data suggest that primary repair of posterior cruciate ligament ruptures provides good results after 8 years in approximately two thirds of the patients, and the patients' subjective assessments were normal or nearly normal in 35 patients. Expand
Tunnel placement in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: MRI analysis as an important factor in the radiological report
TLDR
Patients’ clinical outcome, and the radiographic and MRI findings, correlated closely with the quality of operative tunnel placement, which can be used to improve the surgical quality of tunnel placement. Expand
Minimal-invasive Implantatentfernung nach retrograder Marknagelung am distalen Femur
TLDR
The arthroscopic assisted implant removal is a gentle procedure, which allows minimal invasive extraction of retrograde femur nails and prevents secondary damage to the knee joint due to the otherwise difficult localisation of the implant. Expand
Clinical experience with PDS II augmentation for operative treatment of acute proximal ACL ruptures – 2-year follow-up
TLDR
The potential advantages of PDS II-augmented refixation of acute proximal ACL ruptures are anatomic reconstruction without destruction of other anatomic structures used as grafts, early functional rehabilitation and possibly better proprioception. Expand
[Augmentation techniques: are they out?].
TLDR
The goal of this prospective study was to check the healing capacity of a repaired and augmented ACL with respect to stability compared to a primary or secondary BTB ligament replacement with and without augmentation. Expand
Augmentation of a ruptured posterior cruciate ligament provides normal knee joint stability during ligament healing.
TLDR
It is possible to restore normal posterior knee joint stability by implanting a double strand augmentation device that can help a posterior cruciate ligament to heal under non-elongated conditions. Expand
Ultrasound evaluation of gravity induced anterior drawer following anterior cruciate ligament lesion
TLDR
The described technique is reproducible, painless and easy to perform in order to evaluate acute ACL tears using any commercially available ultrasound device and is recommend for use in cases of acute ACL Tears as well as in the follow-up of ACL repair. Expand
[Post-traumatic leg length inequality after conservative and surgical therapy of pediatric femoral shaft fractures].
TLDR
The results allow no definitive statement on the most suitable treatment for femoral fractures in children (conservative versus operative treatment), except that children under 3 years of age are best treated by overhead traction. Expand
[Minimal invasive implant removal after retrograde intramedullary nailing of the distal femur].
TLDR
The arthroscopic assisted implant removal is a gentle procedure, which allows minimal invasive extraction of retrograde femur nails and prevents secondary damage to the knee joint due to the otherwise difficult localisation of the implant. Expand
[Arthroscopically-assisted reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament with autologous patellar tendon replacement-plasty. 5 years results].
TLDR
Better long-term results of IKDC-score is found in patients with autogenous patellar tendon graft for acute ACL-rupture vs. chronic ACL insufficiency, and the isokinetic strength of quadriceps and hamstring were similar between operated vs. unaffected limb. Expand
