To evaluate differences in repair and nonoperatively managed grade III medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries during anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
The aim of this study is to describe a new surgical procedure to plicate the anterior bundle medial collateral ligament (aMCL) into its humeral footprint using a suture anchor, and to present the resu...
Acquisition of appropriate anteroposterior (AP) stability depends on the prosthetic design and intraoperative soft tissue handling. A bi-cruciate stabilized (BCS) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has a t...
The Segond fracture is a tibial avulsion injury of the insertion of the middle third of the lateral capsular ligament that is typically associated with anterior cruciate ligament and meniscal tears. T...
The purpose of this study was to quantify the effect of clinically relevant open-wedge high tibial osteotomies on medial collateral ligament (MCL) strain and the resultant tibiofemoral contact mechani...
In this study we will examine patients who have undergone anterior cruciate and/or posterior cruciate ligament and/or multi ligaments reconstruction to determine the rate of re-injury, con...
Anterior cruciate ligament injury is very common knee injury. Especially Anterior cruciate ligament complete rupture leads to knee joint instability and degenerative change of the knee. An...
Evaluation After Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the Knee Using the Bioresorbable Interference Screw (SMS): Resorbability, Per- and Post-operative Complications and Articular Functional Recovery.
The investigators will evaluate the benefit of a new bioresorbable screw for repair of anterior cruciate ligament over 3 years.
Patients with combined Anterolateral ligament (ALL) reconstruction- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) revision will have a better rotational knee stability and therefore better patient repo...
The objective of this study is to compare the pain control benefit of two different types of nerve blocks in patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.
The ligament that travels from the medial epicondyle of the FEMUR to the medial margin and medial surface of the TIBIA. The medial meniscus is attached to its deep surface.
Sprain or tear injuries to the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT of the knee.
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.
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.
