PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of surgical reinsertion of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) to the adductor tubercle compared with conservative treatment in patients with primary dislocation of the patella. METHODS Eighty patients with primary patella dislocation were included in the study. Delayed arthroscopy (mean,(More)
BACKGROUND In cases of multiple ligament injury or severe medial collateral ligament (MCL) lesion, nonoperative treatment of the MCL lesion may lead to chronic valgus instability or rotatory instability. HYPOTHESIS In a retrospective case series after isolated and combined MCL reconstructions using a novel MCL reconstruction technique that addresses both(More)
PURPOSE We present clinical results in a case series of 44 patients with medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction with 12 to 32 months' follow-up. METHODS Reconstruction was performed via gracilis tendon autograft looped through 2 transverse 4.5-mm drill holes in the patella and fixed at the natural MPFL insertion site on the medial femoral(More)
We present the clinical results of a large consecutive, prospective, single-clinic series of patients treated with medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction for recurrent patellar instability. The study included 224 patients undergoing MPFL reconstruction in a total of 240 knees between 2008 and 2011. Indication for surgery was two or more(More)
PURPOSE This study presents clinical results of a case series of isolated reconstruction of the posterolateral corner (PLC) with a new technique that aims to reconstruct the lateral collateral ligament (LCL), popliteus tendon, and popliteofibular ligament. METHODS From 1997 to 2005, 27 patients available for follow-up with isolated posterolateral(More)
Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction has recently been broadly accepted as primary surgical treatment in adults. Reconstruction techniques with osseous fixation in femur cannot be used for patients with open growth plates. Operative treatment of patella instability in children therefore is a challenge and requires alternative MPFL(More)
The aim of the present study is to present epidemiology and clinical outcome after revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with an intermediate follow-up time of up to 9 years. A retrospective study of patients treated with ACL revision from 2001 to 2007 at a university referral clinic was conducted. Study follow-up was performed in 2010;(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, arthroscopic-based treatment for hip-related pain with radiological findings of femoroacetabular impingement and labral lesions has been developed.We aim to present clinical outcome in a single centre patient cohort of patients treated arthroscopically for hip-related pain due to femoroacetabular impingement. METHODS A total of 117(More)
Developing bio-absorbable interference screws for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has proven to be a challenging task. The aim of this study was to investigate the osteogenetic response of poly-lactide carbonate (PLC) interference screws in ACL reconstruction in humans. Ten patients (median age, 28 years) underwent arthroscopic ACL(More)
Heterotopic bone formation was investigated in 392 Charnley low-friction total hip arthroplasties. A multivariate linear regression analysis was used to account for the influence of co-variables: sex, age at surgery, postoperative treatment with antiinflammatory drugs during at least the first 2 weeks, and previous ipsilateral hip surgery. A total of 232(More)
