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...

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...

The impact of fixation methods on the risk of revision in ACL reconstruction - a study from the Scandinavian ACL registries, 2004-2011

Aims and Objectives: The hamstring autograft is one of the most common grafts used for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) and a large number of fixation methods are available. There are no studies investigating the risk of revision for specific fixation devices. Revision ACLR is a relatively rare event and large registry-based prospective studies make it possible to...

Revision surgery in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a cohort study of 17,682 patients from the Swedish National Knee Ligament Register

Purpose To investigate the association between surgical variables and the risk of revision surgery after ACL reconstruction in the Swedish National Knee Ligament Register. Methods This cohort study was based on data from the Swedish National Knee Ligament Register. Patients who underwent primary single-bundle ACL reconstruction with hamstring tendon were included. Follow-up...

Epidemiology of surgically treated posterior cruciate ligament injuries in Scandinavia

Purpose The main purpose of the study was to provide an overview of injury mechanisms, concomitant injuries, and other relevant epidemiological data for patients treated in Scandinavia with posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (PCLR) following a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury. Methods A total number of 1287 patients who underwent PCLR from 2004 to 2013 in the...

Why knee ligament registries are important…

National quality registries have been used in several medical specialties to improve health care in Scandinavia [1, 3–6]. Due to the inferior clinical results associated with some hip prosthesis designs in the early 1980s [6], the nationwide Hip Arthroplasty Register (NAR) was established in Sweden in 1979 and in Norway in 1987 with implant revision as the main end point [1]. The...
