Revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction restores knee laxity but shows inferior functional knee outcome compared with primary reconstruction

PurposeTo evaluate and compare knee laxity and functional knee outcome between primary and revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in the same cohort of patients.MethodsPatients who underwent primary and revision ACL reconstruction (ACLR) at Capio Artro Clinic, Stockholm, Sweden, from 2000 to 2015, were identified in our local database. Inclusion criteria were...

Hamstring tendon autografts do not show complete graft maturity 6 months postoperatively after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

PurposeIn this prospective, double-center cohort study, we aim to assess how the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) signal intensity on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) potentially varies between a group of patients with anatomic ACL reconstruction using autogenous hamstring grafts 6 months postoperatively and a healthy ACL control group, and how MRI-based graft signal intensity is...

Bone bruise in anterior cruciate ligament rupture entails a more severe joint damage affecting joint degenerative progression

PurposeDuring anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, the large external forces responsible for ligament rupture cause a violent impact between tibial and femoral articular cartilage, which is transferred to bone resulting in bone bruise detectable at MRI. Several aspects remain controversial and await evidence on how this MRI finding should be managed while addressing the...

Hip and groin injury is the most common non-time-loss injury in female amateur football

PurposeHip and groin injuries in football are problematic due to their high incidence and risk of chronicity and recurrence. The use of only time-loss injury definitions may underestimate the burden of hip and groin injuries. Little is known about hip and groin injury epidemiology in female football. The first aim of this study was to examine the within-season (2014–2015...

The ESSKA-AFAS international consensus statement on peroneal tendon pathologies

IntroductionPeroneal tendon injuries are a significant cause of lateral ankle symptoms in the active population. Accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment is important for minimizing the risk of long-term sequelae associated with chronic peroneal tendinopathy. Although several studies have been published on diagnostic strategies and treatment outcomes, there is no consensus on the...

Arthroscopic reduction of a locked patellar dislocation: a new less invasive technique

Patellar dislocation is a condition that is often reduced by itself or through closed manipulation from a trained professional. In this case of a traumatic lateral patellar dislocation, the patella was caught through the rupture in the lateral retinaculum, as is seen in Boutonniere-like lesions. Reduction of the dislocated patella was obtained by arthroscopic reduction.Level of...

Ten-year patient-reported outcomes following total and minimally invasive unicompartmental knee arthroplasty: a propensity score-matched cohort analysis

Purpose For patients with medial compartment arthritis who have failed non-operative treatment, either a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) can be undertaken. This analysis considers how the choice between UKA and TKA affects long-term patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs). Methods The Knee Arthroplasty Trial (KAT) and a cohort of...

Optimum stem length for mitigation of periprosthetic fracture risk following primary total knee arthroplasty: a finite element study

Purpose Due to age-related changes to the material properties and thinning of the cortical bone structure, older patients with osteoporosis may be at greater risk of femoral fracture following total knee arthroplasty. This study investigates whether there is a potential role for stemmed prostheses in such scenarios to help mitigate peri-implant fracture risk, and if so what...

Flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer to the navicular: tendon-to-tendon repair is stronger compared with interference screw fixation

PurposeTo assess whether early rehabilitation could be safe after flexor digitorum longus (FDL) tendon transfer, the current biomechanical study aimed to measure tendon displacement under cyclic loading and load to failure, comparing a traditional tendon-to-tendon (TT) repair with interference screw fixation (ISF).Methods24 fresh-frozen cadaveric below knee specimens underwent...

Cohen’s MRI scoring system has limited value in predicting return to play

Purpose Numerous authors have hypothesised that MRI scoring systems provide a valid means of predicting return to play duration following an acute hamstring muscle strain. The purpose is to prospectively investigate the predictive value of the MRI scoring system of Cohen for return to sport (RTS), following an acute hamstring injury. Methods Male football (soccer) players (n...

Flexing and downsizing the femoral component is not detrimental to patellofemoral biomechanics in posterior-referencing cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty

PurposeWhen downsizing the femoral component to prevent mediolateral overhang, notching of the anterior femoral cortex may occur, which could be solved by flexing the femoral component. In this study, we investigated the effect of flexion of the femoral component on patellar tendon moment arm, patellofemoral forces and kinematics in posterior-referencing CR-TKA. Our hypothesis...

The Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) in the Dutch population with and without complaints of ankle instability

Purpose To develop a translated Dutch version of the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) and test its psychometric properties in a Dutch population with foot and ankle complaints. Methods The CAIT was translated into the Dutch language using a forward–backward translation design. Of the 130 subsequent patients visiting the outpatient clinic for foot and ankle complaints who...

Reliability and validation of the Dutch Achilles tendon Total Rupture Score

Purpose Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) have become a cornerstone for the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment. The Achilles tendon Total Rupture Score (ATRS) is a PROM for outcome and assessment of an Achilles tendon rupture. The aim of this study was to translate the ATRS to Dutch and evaluate its reliability and validity in the Dutch population. Methods A...
