Correction to: Peak stresses shift from femoral tunnel aperture to tibial tunnel aperture in lateral tibial tunnel ACL reconstructions: a 3D graft-bending angle measurement and finite-element analysis

Unfortunately, one of the co-author’s name was missed in the original online publication of this article. The name should be included as sixth author in the author group.

The trochlear isometric point is different in patients with recurrent patellar instability compared to controls: a radiographical study

Purpose The purpose of the study was to investigate the theoretical isometric point based of the curve of the femoral groove and relating it to the origin of the MPFL femoral tunnel on lateral radiograph by comparing a patellar instability cohort with a control cohort. Methods From a Patellar Instability database the radiographs of 40 consecutive patients were analysed to define ...

No risk of arthrofibrosis after acute anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

Purpose To compare acute ACL reconstruction (ACLR) within 8 days of injury with delayed reconstruction after normalized range of motion (ROM), 6–10 weeks after injury. It was hypothesized that acute ACL reconstruction with modern techniques is safe and can be beneficial in terms of patient-reported outcomes and range of motion. Methods Sample size calculation indicated 64 patients ...

“I never made it to the pros…” Return to sport and becoming an elite athlete after pediatric and adolescent anterior cruciate ligament injury—Current evidence and future directions

The management of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in the skeletally immature and adolescent patient remains an area of controversy in sports medicine. This study, therefore, summarizes and discusses the current evidence related to treating pediatric and adolescent patients who sustain an ACL injury. The current literature identifies a trend towards ACL reconstruction as ...

Endoscopic shelf acetabuloplasty can improve clinical outcomes and achieve return to sports-related activity in active patients with hip dysplasia

Purpose To investigate clinical outcomes and return to sports-related activity following endoscopic shelf acetabuloplasty combined with labral repair in the treatment of the active patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). Methods Between 2011 and 2013, 32 patients (36 hips; 11 males and 21 females; 11 right 17 left 4 bilateral; median age 28.5, range 12–51 years), ...

Origin and insertion of the medial patellofemoral ligament: a systematic review of anatomy

Purpose The medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) is the major medial soft-tissue stabiliser of the patella, originating from the medial femoral condyle and inserting onto the medial patella. The exact position reported in the literature varies. Understanding the true anatomical origin and insertion of the MPFL is critical to successful reconstruction. The purpose of this ...

Correlation between quantitative pivot shift and generalized joint laxity: a prospective multicenter study of ACL ruptures

Purpose To investigate whether an increased magnitude of quantitative rotatory knee laxity is associated with a greater level of generalized joint laxity in ACL-injured and contralateral knees. Methods A total of 103 patients were enrolled across four international centers to undergo anatomic ACL reconstruction. Rotatory knee laxity was evaluated preoperatively, both in the awake ...

Correction to: Effect of patient positioning in axillary nerve safety during arthroscopic inferior glenohumeral ligament plication

The author claims that his name is incorrectly listed on PubMed. The first name should be Jorge and the last name should be Díaz Heredia. On SpringerLink the name is listed correctly, but on PubMed he is listed as Heredia JD.

Anatomic stabilization techniques provide superior results in terms of functional outcome in patients suffering from chronic ankle instability compared to non-anatomic techniques

Purpose To determine the best surgical treatment for chronic ankle instability (CAI) a systematic review was performed to compare the functional outcomes between various surgical stabilization methods. Methods A systematic search was performed from 1950 up to April 2016 using PubMed, EMBASE, Medline and the Cochrane Library. Inclusion criteria were a minimum age of 18 years, ...

Meniscal repair results in inferior short-term outcomes compared with meniscal resection: a cohort study of 6398 patients with primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

Purpose To compare patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) during the first postoperative year between isolated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and ACL reconstruction with concomitant meniscal intervention. Methods Patients who underwent primary ACL reconstruction at Capio Artro Clinic, Stockholm, Sweden, between 1st Jan 2001 and 31st Dec 2014 without concomitant ...

Reliability and validity of the Polish version of the Achilles tendon Total Rupture Score

Purpose The aim of this study was to perform the translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the Achilles tendon Total Rupture Score (ATRS) into Polish version, and to evaluate its reliability and validity. Methods The ATRS was translated into Polish language according to the Beaton recommendations. A total number of 71 patients previously treated surgically (from 2011 to 2015), ...

The effect of total knee arthroplasty on patients’ balance and incidence of falls: a systematic review

Purpose Despite the high incidence of falls in patients with OA, few studies have explored whether falls risk is affected after patients undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Therefore, the aim of this systematic review was to identify the extent of the effects of TKA on balance and incidence of falls by critically reviewing the available literature. Methods A systematic review of ...

Greater pre-operative anxiety, pain and poorer function predict a worse outcome of a total knee arthroplasty

Purpose Around 10–30 % of patients are dissatisfied with the results of their total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This review aimed to identify and evaluate the predictors of outcome measured by the three domains of health-related quality of life (pain, stiffness and function). The focus was on pre-operative psychological factors as related to other patient-related variables. Methods A ...

Deficits in functional performance and gait one year after total knee arthroplasty despite improved self-reported function

Purpose The current literature lacks sufficient information about improvements in gait patterns and function after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and whether patients return to full function. This study evaluated change in gait, performance-based function, and self-reported function 1 year after TKA in patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis and how these aspects interrelate. ...

Young athletes return too early to knee-strenuous sport, without acceptable knee function after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

Purpose The purpose of this study was to evaluate the return to knee-strenuous sport rate, muscle function and subjective knee function among adolescent patients (15–20 years of age) and adult patients (21–30 years of age) 8 and 12 months, respectively, after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. It was hypothesised that no differences in outcome would be found between ...

Osteoarthritis is associated with symptoms of common mental disorders among former elite athletes

Purpose The primary aim was to establish the association between osteoarthritis (OA) and the occurrence and comorbidity of symptoms of common mental disorders (CMD: distress, anxiety/depression, sleep disturbance, adverse alcohol use) in a group of former elite athletes (rugby, football, ice hockey, Gaelic sports and cricket). A secondary aim was to explore this association in the ...

Similar cost-utility for double- and single-bundle techniques in ACL reconstruction

Purpose The aim was to estimate the cost-utility of the DB technique (n = 53) compared with the SB (n = 50) technique 2 years after ACL reconstruction. Methods One hundred and five patients with an ACL injury were randomised to either the Double-bundle (DB) or the Single-bundle (SB) technique. One hundred and three patients (SBG n = 50, DBG n = 53) attended the 2-year follow-up ...

A multilayer biomaterial for osteochondral regeneration shows superiority vs microfractures for the treatment of osteochondral lesions in a multicentre randomized trial at 2 years

Purpose The increasing awareness on the role of subchondral bone in the etiopathology of articular surface lesions led to the development of osteochondral scaffolds. While safety and promising results have been suggested, there are no trials proving the real potential of the osteochondral regenerative approach. Aim was to assess the benefit provided by a nanostructured ...
