Certain technical tricks definitely helped us in avoiding intraoperative hurdles. Abstract Objectives The objective of this study is to report the clinical and functional outcomes of Hamstring graft ACL reconstruction fixed with femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices. Additionally, posterior wall blow-out does not seem to be a serious problem because the graft was fixed within the tunnel proximal to its intra-articular outlet.
Epub Jul The graft was then pulled through and it was secured in the femoral tunnel with bio-absorbable femoral ST cross pin Depuy, Mitek, Fig. No evidences of neurovascular injury, infection, iatrogenic fracture or graft slippage or failure were documented. Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc. Regardless of the origin of the products, documentation provided or identification appearing upon the items, the items described and offered here are in no way certified for, recommended for, or offered for any specific use.
At this point it is important to check that the pins will be placed in the center of the femoral tunnel and hence through the graft Fig. A comparison of quadruple semitendinosus and patellar tendon graft s in reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament.
Confirmation of pin placement at the centre of the tunnel with a guide pin. The cross pins were inserted as close to the joint line as possible to provide outlet graft fixation. Several biomechanical and clinical studies have shown that femoral cross-pin and tibial Intrafix or Bio-intrafix devices provide increased strength and stiffness to the graft fixation.

This score improved to Patients with multi-ligamentous injury, infective, inflammatory or degenerative pathologies or previous history of surgery on the affected knee were excluded from the study. Subjects were prescribed intense physical therapy for motion exercise, and to strengthen thigh muscles.
No intraoperative or postoperative complications were documented. This suggests that all the patients had significant improvement after ACL reconstruction with this technique of fixation. The IKDC score improved from The femoral guide wire was drilled with appropriate femoral jig through the anteromedial portal. We did not encounter any complication during the intraoperative or postoperative periods.
Similarly, preop and postop Lysholm score showed significant correlation with correlation coefficient of 0. Nevertheless, the treatment results depend on the press-fit of the graft, bone density around the femoral tunnel, and correct placement of the cross pins through the graft tendon. In a prospective study, the clinical Lysholm score and functional outcomes International Knee Documentation Committee, IKDC of 44 patients who underwent autologus hamstring graft ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices, were evaluated at the end of one year.
Contributions of femoral fixation methods to the stiffness of anterior cruciate ligament replacements at implantation. Similarly, the mean anterior translation of tibia improved from 7. All reconstructions were carried out under regional or general anaesthesia, with the patient in a supine position.
Principles for using hamstring tendons for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Preoperative evaluation included history, clinical examination, ligamentous laxity measurement using KT arthrometer, radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging of the knee joint. Naika Premjit Sujira and Sharath K. Similarly the ACL footprint on the tibial attachment site was identified Fig.

Tibial fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: Methods In a prospective study, the clinical Lysholm score and functional outcomes International Knee Documentation Committee, IKDC of 44 patients who underwent autologus hamstring graft ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices, were evaluated at the intrafis of one year.
Please make sure you are ready to buy if you decide to place a bid. On the basis of the improved results in graft compression as well as stability with this technique, they recommended their applied method for the reconstruction in ACL deficient knees.

Yes You can also: There was no obvious meniscal pathology in majority In the early postoperative period, the strength of fixation of the graft is the critical point limiting aggressive rehabilitation. Results The mean age of patients included in this study was The Rigidfix guide frame was detached and removed.
Hamstring graft fixation using femoral Rigid-fix and infrafix Bio-intrafix devices provide secure graft fixation and allows aggressive rehabilitation. Hamstring graft fixation using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices provide secure graft fixation and allows aggressive rehabilitation.
Second-look arthroscopy of anterior cruciate ligament grafts with multi-stranded hamstring tendons. There were 39 males Am J Sports Med. The jntrafix of this study is to report the clinical and functional outcomes of Hamstring graft ACL reconstruction fixed with femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices.
The clinical results of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with Intrafix.
The mean anterior translation of tibia in the pre-op period was 7. In addition to sufficient strength and stiffness, the fixation of the graft should be anatomic, biocompatible, safe, and reproducible and should allow undisturbed magnetic resonance imaging MRI of the knee.
