Background Patients with a history of knee trauma or previous surgery may exhibit pain in the infrapatellar region that is refractory to conservative care. This may be due to subtle scarring of the anterior interval. Hypothesis Arthroscopic release of a scarred anterior interval will lead to improvement in anterior knee pain. Study Design Case series; Level of evidence, 4. Methods Twenty-five consecutive patients with isolated scarring of the anterior interval, confirmed with both magnetic… Expand
An algorithmic approach to rehabilitation following arthroscopic surgery for arthrofibrosis of the knee
TLDR
Arthroscopic debridement of knee joint arthrofibrosis after ACLR in conjunction with a postoperative physical therapy algorithmic approach to maximizing knee joint extension ROM can be beneficial in gaining symmetrical knee extension range of motion and improved function. Expand

TLDR
Arthroscopic release, consisting of an extended lateral release, debridement of the notch/fat pad, and manual manipulation of the patella, results in significant increases in validated outcome measures and is well tolerated by patients. Expand
Painful Knee is not Uncommon after total Knee Arthroplasty and can be Treated by Arthroscopic Debridement

TLDR
If infection and aseptic loosening could be ruled out in a painful knee after TKA, arthroscopic debridement appeared to be a good option to resolve the pain. Expand
Presentation and management of arthrofibrosis of the knee: A case report
TLDR
A 28-year-old female presented with swelling, pain, and decreased strength, range of motion, patellar mobility, and function following an exploratory arthroscopy of her left knee and underwent two additional surgeries to remove scar tissue. Expand
Unusual Presentation of Anterior Knee Pain in Elite Female Athletes: Report of Two Cases
TLDR
Given the possibility of a false negative MRI images, patients with persistent anterior knee pain with a history of knee surgeries and focal tenderness reproducible on physical exam may benefit from a diagnostic arthroscopy. Expand
Nonligamentous Soft Tissue Pathology About the Knee: A Review.
TLDR
With proper recognition of the role of these structures in kneePain, the orthopedic surgeon can offer a valuable primary or adjunctive treatment option for patients with knee pain, especially those without localizing signs of meniscal, ligamentous, or cartilage damage. Expand
A New Procedure for Ultrasound-Guided Hydrorelease for the Scarring After Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
TLDR
The most important finding from this patient's course is that her chief complaint of anterior knee pain improved by ultrasound-guided hydrorelease into the IPFP scarring after arthroscopic knee surgery. Expand
Surgical Technique for Release of Anterior Interval Scarring of the Knee After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to describe the technique for anterior interval release of the knee. Expand
Arthroscopic Releases for Arthrofibrosis of the Knee
TLDR
Initial nonsurgical management, including compression, elevation, and physical therapy, can decrease knee pain and inflammation and maintain range of motion and surgical management is indicated in the patient who fails conservative treatment. Expand
Arthroscopic lysis of adhesions for stiff total knee arthroplasty.
TLDR
An association between patient height, BMI, and preoperative knee score and the improvement achieved after arthroscopic lysis of adhesions following TKA is found and the authors recommend arthro Scopic Lysis of Adhesions as a treatment option for stiff knees after TKA that fails after at least 3 months of nonoperative treatment.

Arthroscopic treatment of symptomatic extension block complicating anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
TLDR
The evidence from this study indicates that an intraarticular block to full knee extension is associated with definite sympathy and disability and when this problem fails to respond to nonoperative treatment, significant improvement can be obtained by arthroscopic excision of the impinging tissue followed by an aggressive rehabilitation program. Expand
Infrapatellar contracture syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that prevention or early detection and aggressive treatment are the only ways of avoiding complication in these problem cases of Infrapatellar Contracture Syndrome. Expand
Extensor mechanism function after patellar tendon graft harvest for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
TLDR
Despite achieving ligamentous stability, patients still experienced permanent weakness, functional deficits, patellar chondrosis, and pain after ACL reconstruction using the central one-third of the patella tendon. Expand
Extensor mechanism function after patellar tendon graft harvest for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
TLDR
Physical examination and functional testing also revealed persistent dysfunction of the extensor mecha nism in patients with radiographic abnormalities, and only 3 of 10 patients returned to all of their preinjury sports. Expand
The nature of anterior knee pain following injection of hypertonic saline into the infrapatellar fat pad
TLDR
It is suggested that nociceptive stimulation of the infrapatellar fat pad may cause anterior knee pain that is not necessarily confined locally particularly if pain is severe. Expand
Quantitative Analysis of Synovial Fibrosis in the Infrapatellar Fat Pad Before and After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
TLDR
Analysis of preoperative and postoperative paired samples revealed a signifi cant increase in synovial collagen after anterior cruci ate ligament reconstruction, and observed increased fibrosis in patients who had pain on exertion or stiff ness in squatting after the reconstructive surgery. Expand

TLDR
In 11 patients the diagnosis of Hoffa's syndrome with chronic impingement of the fat pad was established by clinical signs and arthroscopic findings and one poor result was in a patient who subsequently developed a diffused, chronic, inflammatory synovitis. Expand
Immunohistologic Analysis of Synovium in Infrapatellar Fat Pad After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
TLDR
The results demonstrated that synovitis in the infrapatellar fat pad subsides within 3 months after injury with the progression of fibrosis, and it is speculated that when anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is performed dur ing the stage of acutesynovitis, the operation may further promote the synovita, accelerating the arthrofibrotic re action.

MR imaging of the infrapatellar fat pad of Hoffa.
TLDR
The approach to pathologic processes involving the infrapatellar fat pad of Hoffa is simplified when one is familiar with regional anatomy and possible differential diagnostic considerations. Expand
Transverse ligament and its effect on meniscal motion. Correlation of kinematic MR imaging and anatomic sections.
TLDR
The transverse ligament has a restricting effect on anterior-posterior excursion of the anterior horn of the medial meniscus at lower degrees of knee flexion. Expand
