Robotic Assistance for Tunnel Positioning in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

2019-12-09 00:56:34 | BioPortfolio


Accurate ideal graft tunnel positioning is essential for the successful application of anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The accurate insertion of the tibial tunnel (TT) and femoral tunnel (FT) remain a challenge.

A robotic assisted new strategy for drill TT and FT in ACL reconstruction will be performed and its efficacy and accuracy will be assess.

The investigators will prospectively include 30 patients with ACL rupture requiring surgical treatment. The reconstruction will be performed with hamstring tendon graft or patellar tendon graft. The femoral and tibial tunnels placement will be guided by the Rosa robot (Zimmer®).

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.

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

Rebuilding of the POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability 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.

An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
