Infrapatellar contracture syndrome is an uncommon but recalcitrant cause of reduced range of motion after knee surgery or injury. [...] Key Method The results and conclusions pre sented here are based on a retrospective clinical study evaluating the long-term outcome in 75 patients who developed infrapatellar contracture syndrome. These 75 patients (76 knees) were evaluated at an average followup of 53 months after the index (inciting) proce dure or injury. Comparing subgroups within the study population…Expand
Outpatient Surgical Management of Arthrofibrosis After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Surgery
TLDR
A consecutive series of nine patients who were referred to us because of arthrofibrosis after intraarticular anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using autogenous patellar ten don or semitendinosus graft are presented. Expand
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
Uncommon causes of anterior knee pain: a case report of infrapatellar contracture syndrome.
TLDR
A case is presented in which the revised diagnosis of infrapatellar contracture syndrome was made after noting delayed progress in the rehabilitation of an active female patient with a presumed anterior horn medial meniscus tear and a contracted patellar tendon. Expand
Arthroscopically assisted anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with the pes anserine tendons
TLDR
Objective outcome, which was noted to be more opti mal in the acute group, was better than subjective outcome in either group, and patients recon structed earlier were noted to have a better outcome compared to those after delayed reconstruction. Expand
Failure of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.
TLDR
The present review classifies and describes the multifactorial causes of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery failure, concentrating on preventing and resolving such situations that require ACL revision due to recurrent instability. Expand

Arthrofibrosis and patella infera: a simple surgical solution. Preliminary report and literature review
TLDR
One patient with patella baja and arthrofibrosis with progressive retraction of patellar tendon treated with open arthrolysis and resection of the distal third of the patellA is presented in order to lengthen the tendon and prosthetic resurfacing of the remaining two proximal thirds of thepatella. Expand
Failed Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction and Loss of Motion
TLDR
It is critical to regain knee motion prior to performing a revision ACL reconstruction, and an appropriately aggressive rehabilitation program will help to prevent a recurrence of motion loss. Expand
Role of posterior capsulotomy for the treatment of extension deficits of the knee
TLDR
It is concluded that posterior capsulotomy is a safe and efficient adjunct procedure to anterior arthrolysis and is indicated in cases with chronic flexion contracture. Expand
Failed Anterior Cruciate Ligament Surgery in the Middle Age Arthritic Knee
TLDR
In the middle age patient with osteoarthritis of the knee, revision ACL surgery should be considered a salvage procedure whose primary goal is restoration of stability with activities of daily living. Expand

Arthrofibrosis in acute anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
TLDR
The evidence suggests that delaying reconstructive surgery at least 3 weeks from time of acute ACL injury will result in earlier return of strength and, more importantly, a significantly decreased inci dence of arthrofibrosis. Expand
Patellofemoral problems after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
TLDR
It is likely that a causal relationship is present in which flexion contracture causes patello femoral irritability and that both of these factors, alone or in combination, result in quadriceps weakness, and it is crucial that postoperative rehabilitation programs place a major emphasis on the avoidance of flexioncontracture.

TLDR
13 patients after intra-articular ACL reconstruction using a patella tendon autograft developed a similar symptom complex, and in addition to postoperative loss of full extension, there was an audible and palpable clunk with terminal extension. Expand
Loss of motion after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
TLDR
A retrospective review and follow-up examina tion of patients who developed loss of motion after arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction found no difference between patients and the controls regarding patellofemoral problems, anterior knee laxity, and functional strength. Expand
Limitation of motion following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
TLDR
The authors suggest that it is prudent to avoid im mediate reconstructive surgery on the basis of knee stiffness, as the stiff knee requires early aggressive management with a manipulation and or arthroscopic arthrolysis. Expand

TLDR
One hundred fifty-six patients treated with intraarticular anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction were analyzed and it was found that developing fibroarthrosis postoperatively did not affect a patient's long-term clinical result when properly recognized and promptly treated. Expand

TLDR
This study suggests that arthroscopic intraarticular release of adhesions is efficacious in the management of arthrofibrosis of the knee subsequent to previous open operative procedures. Expand
