The overall aim of this multicenter RCT is to determine whether concomitant ALL reconstruction in children undergoing and ACL reconstruction will longitudinally result in a lower rate of graft failure than ACL reconstruction alone.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is one of the most commonly performed surgeries amongst young orthopedic surgery patients. Optimal post-operative pain control helps to reduce the opioid burden and to improve the patient's experience. Regional anesthesia, such as the femoral nerve block (FNB) and adductor canal block (ACB), are commonly used for post-operative pain control after surgery. The ACB has replaced the FNB. This is because the ACB targets the femoral nerve, while avoiding the numbing effects on quadricep muscle strength that make it difficult to move the leg. Another form of pain control is local infiltration anesthesia (LIA), which directly blocks pain in the knee. Similar to the ACB, it avoids the numbing effects on the quadricep muscle.This can help improve patient safety and experience by reducing risks of falls and allowing the patient to move earlier. This can also be associated with decreased time in the hospital and decreased costs. Technically, it is less complex and can be done the shorter period of time. The purpose of this study is to refine the pain management technique following anterior cruciate ligament surgery. More specifically, the aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of LIA alone, and a LIA-ACB combination on post-operative pain and thigh muscle strength.
Surgery using the Arthrex PEEK or Biocomposite FastThread Interference Screw for ACL or PCL (PCL at US sites only, Biocomposite screw PCL only) repair or reconstruction.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are one of the most common injuries of the knee. In today's world, due to developing sports industry , the increase in sports traumas of both genders and ages ACL injuries and treatments are given major priority. The success of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction depends on many factors, including the mechanical properties of the graft, positioning of the proper femoral and tibial tunnel, fixation methods and the postoperative rehabilitation. The tendon grafts can be fixed on the femoral side using several fixation devices, including cortical suspension devices, cross pins, and interference screws. Femoral fixation via Cortical button in a suture loop provides the highest primary stability, and therefore, has become increasingly popular among orthopaedic surgeons. Adjustable and fixed Femoral cortical loops are commonly used for femoral fixation. In this sudy we aimed to compare clinical and radiological outcomes of three different techniques of femoral fixation in ACL reconstruction.
This is a multicenter randomized, placebo-controlled trial to assess whether a 6-month course of oral montelukast after ACL reconstruction reduces systemic markers of inflammation and biochemical and imaging biomarkers of cartilage degradation. This study will specifically target older ACL reconstruction patients with concomitant meniscal injuries as this group is at greatest risk of rapid PTOA progression. Patients will randomly be assigned to receive oral montelukast (10 mg) versus placebo daily for 6 months after surgery.
In this study our objective is to compare two tibial ACL graft fixation systems in patients undergoing two different reconstructions technique (with simple and double bundle) in terms of tendon graft osteointegration, functionality and return to sports.
Telerehabilitation is a form of tele-treatment in which rehabilitation services are dispensed at patients' home utilizing video telecommunication services with real-time synchronous exchange of information. The advantages of telerehabilitation include reducing unnecessary travel to the hospital and person to person contact while maintaining social distancing. While some of the patients are truly staying at remote areas, others are unable to manage travel in the lockdown period. Telemedicine offers the opportunity to deliver rehabilitative services in the patients' home, closing geographic, physical, and motivational gaps. Punctuality on either side is also assured since the travel times are saved on both the ends. The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate telerehabilitation vs. in-person rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction. Objectives include assess return to sport and patient reported functional outcomes.
The overall objective of the proposed research is to conduct a prospective, randomized controlled trial to investigate whether the addition of BFR therapy to standard post-operative rehabilitation regimen significantly improves clinical outcomes following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) standardized with respect to both surgical technique and graft selection. Patients indicated for ACLR will be screened and offered enrollment into this prospective, randomized controlled trial. MRI of bilateral thighs will be performed within 7 days of ACLR. Patients will be randomized to either REHAB or REHAB + BFR (study intervention) using a block randomization scheme. Patients will undergo repeat MRI of bilateral thighs at 16 weeks and 52 weeks post-operatively (primary outcome measure.) Patient reported outcome (PRO) instruments will be administered pre-operatively to establish pre-operative debility related to ACL injury and subsequently after ACLR at 24 weeks, 36 weeks, and 52 weeks post-operative (secondary outcome measures).
The purpose with this present study is to investigate the effect og a non-surgical regime in patients with an Anterior Cruciate ligament injury. The effect will be measured by patient reported outcome scores, level of function and how many of the patients are converting to operative treatment.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of the Lake Effect Zero Degree Knee Splint brace in the postoperative period of ACL reconstruction to improve range of motion, specifically the achievement of terminal extension and time-to-achievement compared to the standard hinged knee brace. This will be directly measured with goniometric angle and heel-height measurements relative to the contralateral side. Other metrics will include standard, validated patient reported outcomes and requirements for additional interventions to treat extension deficits including, but not limited to, additional therapy, intraarticular injections, oral corticosteroids, manipulation under anesthesia, or arthroscopic arthrolysis.
