Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Bone-patellar Tendon-bone Graft
Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament
A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the posteromedial portion of the lateral condyle of the femur, passes anteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the depression in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia.
Posterior Cruciate Ligament
A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the anterolateral surface of the medial condyle of the femur, passes posteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the posterior intercondylar area of the tibia.
Lateral Ligament, Ankle
There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.
Measurements of joint flexibility (RANGE OF MOTION, ARTICULAR), usually by employing an angle-measuring device (arthrometer). Arthrometry is used to measure ligamentous laxity and stability. It is often used to evaluate the outcome of ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT replacement surgery.
Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament are common. Surgical reconstruction is more prevalent than ever. This review article discusses treatment of the patient following surgical reconstruction of...
Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament is a well-known entity and causes anteroposterior and rotational instability of an injured knee. Rupture of the medial patellofemoral ligament is less frequen...
We present a review of the literature looking at the anatomy of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, the biomechanical aspects of ACL reconstruction, review the outcomes of single and double bundle ACL rec...
Cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery, both anterior and posterior, by arthroscopic technique is increasingly used today. We present the systematic handling and preparation of the Achilles allograf...
PURPOSE: Conventional transtibial technique fails to restore the rotational knee stability in spite of successful anterior laxity, while anatomic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using the an...
Patients suffering from a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) with instability of the knee joint are treated with an operative ACL-reconstruction: one group of patients with a...
The purpose of the study is to determine if there is difference in immediate postoperative pain levels (48 hours) between patients who wear a knee immobilizer splint compared to patients w...
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is surgery that is done to repair a damaged ligament in the knee. In this study we will look at whether the femoral nerve block, a commonly...
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of four strong ligaments connecting the bones of the knee joint. If overstretched, the ACL can tear. Reconstruction of a torn ACL is now a commo...
A poor outcome in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is often related to tunnel position. The researchers believe that improving the accuracy of tunnel position will lead to a...
