MRI Review of ACLR With and Without Lateral Extra-articular Tenodesis

2019-10-09 09:21:33 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the effect of lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET) on anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction through evaluation of postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This will be a single-center non-randomized controlled study. The study is comparing postoperative graft MRI findings in two cohorts: patients undergoing isolated ACLR and patients undergoing ACLR with lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET). Postoperative MRIs will be obtained at 6, 9 and 12 months postoperatively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.

Rebuilding of the POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee.

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.

Sprain or tear injuries to the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT of the knee.

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.
