Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 41-year-old man who suffered from medial femoral condylar fracture due to an accidental fall. It states that the fracture occurred exactly at the femoral stress-riser wherein anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction was previously performed. The patient underwent a bioresorbable cross-pin 2.7 millimeter fixation through the femoral tunnel and graft and eventually received positive results.

    The aim of this study is to compare three modes of femoral fixation, namely Aperfix, Rigidfix and Endobutton, in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. 120 patients were randomly assigned to three groups, each consisting of 40 patients, and each group was treated by one of the above...

    Purpose: Fixation of soft tissue grafts with interference screws relies on the friction of the graft between the screw and the bone tunnel. The goal of this study was to precondition such grafts by mechanical compression in order to reduce anticipated and undesired viscoelastic adaptation of the...

    Purpose: Although bioabsorbable screws promise to degrade within months up to several years after implantation, often this does not happen. In fact, other problems such as screw breakage, tunnel enlargement, allergic or foreign body reactions, cyst or abscess formation, and delayed migration of...

    Pretensioning of the flexor tendon graft of the knee is used to improve the stability of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions. The objective was to demonstrate the pretensioning of grafts of the semitendinosus and gracilis in situ with range of flexion and extension of 0-110°, and...

    Purpose: The use of graft tissue fixation using bioabsorbable interference screws (BISs) in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction offers various advantages, but limited pullout strength. Therefore, additional tibial fixation is essential for aggressive rehabilitation. We hypothesized...

    Purpose: A suture passed along the part of the graft that will be inserted into the femoral tunnel is widely used by surgeons, because it could prevent the graft sliding on the femoral fixation device during pulling from the tibial side. The aim of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical...

    Purpose: This study aimed to find answers to the following questions: (1) Is it possible to determine and measure the space between the top of the graft and entrance of implant tunnel by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)? (2) Is there any correlation between the hole above the graft in femoral...
