BACKGROUND The risk of tear of the intact anterior cruciate ligament in the contralateral knee after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction of the opposite knee and the incidence of rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament graft during the first 2 years after surgery have not been extensively studied in a prospective manner. Clinicians have hypothesized(More)
Different surgical methods of graft fixation in ACL reconstruction were examined to determine the effects on mechanical properties of the reconstructed ACL. Ten human cadavers were used in this study. Six different types of grafts were studied. The tendon grafts were removed from each cadaver and fixed to femurs and tibias as ACL substitutes with different(More)
BACKGROUND The predictors of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) outcome at 6 years as measured by validated patient-based outcome instruments are unknown. HYPOTHESIS Certain variables evaluated at the time of ACLR will predict return to sports function (as measured by the International Knee Documentation Committee [IKDC] questionnaire and(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of initial tensioning on the outcome of reconstruction of the ACL. The ACLs of 15 adult mongrel dogs were excised and reconstructed. In the first five dogs, the ACLs of both knees were reconstructed using the medial one-third of the patellar tendon. The graft was fixed under a tension of 1 N (0.22 pounds)(More)
Medial transfer of the tibial tuberosity has been commonly used for treatment of recurrent dislocation of the patella and patellofemoral malalignment. In this study, six fresh human cadaveric knees were used. Static intrajoint loads were recorded using Fuji Prescale pressure-sensitive film for contact pressure and contact area determination in a closed(More)
BACKGROUND Despite research on the increased risk of anterior cruciate ligament tears in female athletes, few studies have addressed sex differences in the incidence of associated intraarticular injuries. HYPOTHESIS When patients are stratified by sport and competition level, no sex differences exist in either the mechanism of injury or pattern of(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of graft size on patient-reported outcomes and revision risk after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. METHODS A retrospective chart review of prospectively collected cohort data was performed, and 263 of 320 consecutive patients (82.2%) undergoing primary ACL reconstruction with(More)
PURPOSE Intra-articular chondral and meniscal injury in the multiligament-injured knee has not been examined. The purpose of this study was to determine the pattern of intra-articular chondral and meniscal damage in subjects with multiligament knee injuries undergoing surgery. TYPE OF STUDY Prospective cohort study. METHODS Analysis was performed on(More)
