Removal of meniscal tissue is described to result in poor knee function and a significant risk for future development of osteoarthritis. Different implants have been suggested to substitute a removed meniscus. Meniscal allograft transplantation is not widely available due to costs and availability. The semitendinosus tendon is a known graft with biological properties with potential to remodel and revascularize in an intraarticular environment such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The objective for this study was to investigate whether the semitendinosus tendon graft could function as a meniscal transplant.
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.
Purpose: The purpose of this article is to examine the clinical application of PRP and PRP+hyaluronic acid in disorders in the knee. Methods: The study was conducted on 150 adult patients with age over 20 years old affected by unilateral ACL complete tear and receiving ACL reconstruction. We divided the patients in three groups, and we treated the group A with perioperative injection of HHA, group B with perioperative HHA+PRP, group C with perioperative normal saline. Follow-up: Every 1,3,and 12months, we recheck physical exmianation at OPD and recheck MRI at postoperative 3 months.
One of the common complaints after ACLR with BPTB autograft anterior knee pain. It is thought that this may be due to harvesting the patellar tendon for graft use. Specifically, this may be due to the bone defect that is left after graft harvesting. There is currently no consensus on a gold standard for treating the bone defect with surgeons using multiple commercially available bone void fillers as well as autologous bone graft in standard practice. The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the effect bone-void filler on anterior knee pain following ACL reconstruction BPTB autograft.
The main objective is to compare the effectiveness of two readaptation programs post anterior cruciate ligament surgery. Laval University Rouge et or program is to be compared with the intervention guide from the CHU. Amateur athletes are recruited 3 months post ACL surgery. The level of confidence, symptoms, functional recovery level and muscle strength are assessed and compared between the two groups at 3, 4, 5, 6 and 9-month post surgery.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the the ability of BFR to reduce muscle loss and improve strength after ACL reconstruction. It is hypothesized that BFR training will significantly reduce muscle loss and improve strength after ACL reconstruction. It is also hypothesized that BFR will result in improved patient reported outcomes and rates of return to sport.
Acupuncture research in regards to PONV has been fairly well established, however, studies about perioperative pain control and acupuncture are a little more murky. In 2008, a meta analysis looked at randomized controlled studies and found that while acupuncture was shown to decrease pain, there were limitations including credible placebo or sham intervention, and thus, blinding. The main purpose of this feasibility trial is to determine whether or not adequate blinding is possible in the intraoperative setting with the patient sedated.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of the Össur Rebound dynamic ACL brace on knee kinematics evaluated using dynamic stereo X-ray (DSX) imaging during functional activities. Brace performance will be evaluated before and after ACL reconstruction.
Primary objective of the study is to evaluate efficacy of the surgical technique for ACL reconstruction using an osteoconductive scaffold, enlaced into the hamstring tendon autograft, compared to the traditional technique.
A prospective trial will be used to evaluate the efficacy of prophylactic mechanical perturbation training program. 24 female athletes who are regular participants in activities that involve cutting, pivoting, jumping, and lateral movements prior to injury who range in age from 15-30 year are eligible. Using a prospective risk stratification design, female athletes with knee abduction moment (KAM) > 25.25 Nm from drop jump motion analysis will be classified as high KAM and will receive 12 sessions of mechanically-driven perturbation training and female athletes with KAM < 25.25 Nm from drop jump motion analysis will be classified as normal KAM and only participate in baseline performance testing, followed 6 weeks later by another session of drop jump motion analysis and performance testing.
