  • Purpose : The majority of PCL deficient knees have some intact remnant PCL bundles. In these cases, the remnant PCL bundles were removed fur easy passage of graft(especially in bone-patellar tendon-bone graft). The purpose of study is to report the results of PCL reconstruction by posterior transseptal portal technique and by preserving the remnant posterior cruciate ligament bundles. Materials & Methods : From November 1993 to June 1999, 44 arthroscopic posterior cruciate ligament reconstructions have been performed by one surgeon. We studied 37 knees those were followed up over 1 year among them. The mean age($14\~56$ years) was 31.8 years. The average follow-up period was 17.8 months($12\~61$ months). The graft materials were 29 double-loop hamstring autografts, 4 double-loop hamstring allografts and 4 Achilles tendon-bone allograft. Results : There are significant improvement of the preoperative subjective symptoms. The last follow-up shows that the average Lysholm knee score was markedly improved from 59.8 pre-operation to 89.2 post-operation and the average KT 2000 side difference was decreased from 11.1mm pre-operation to 2.3 mm post-operation. Follow-up MRI showed that the graft was healed with remnant posterior cruciate ligament bundles as one ligament. Conclusion : The posterior trans-septal portal makes it possible to locate the exact tibial tunnel. The arthroscopic PCL reconstruction preserving the remnant of original PCL bundles seems to provide the good result.

  • Purpose : To compare the mid term with long term follow up results of the anterior cruciate ligament(ACL)> reconstruction using patellar tendon. Materials and Methods : Seventy-six cases, which could be followed up more than 2 years were included in this study. They were classified into two groups, mid-term group(41 cases) with mean follow-up periods of 2 years and 10 months and long-term group(35 cases) off years and 6 months. Clinical and radiological results and peripatellar complications were evaluated & compared. Results . There was no statistically significant difference in radiological finding and anterior instability between two groups. However, the incidence of anterior knee pain, paresthesia at incision site, kneeling pain, crepitus and quadriceps weakness was lower in long-term group than in mid-term group. Conclusion : ACL reconstruction using patellar tendon graft could successfully restone the stability of knee joint, but there are some complications in donor site and patellofemoral joint. However this complications were gradually decreased with long term follow-up.

  • This study was conducted to investigate the effects of trunk stability exercise on knee function, balance and gait in patients who underwent total knee arthroplasty. The subjects of this study were recruited from individuals diagnosed with degenerative arthritis who had undergone total knee arthroplasty. Overall, 24 patients were randomly divided into a control groups and an experimental groups (12 each). The trunk stability exercise was conducted for 4 weeks with three exercises developed in a previous study. The measurement tools used were knee function measurements based on the Lysholm knee score, balance ability measured using a test of TUG and OLS, and a walking ability test measured using a 10MWT. Pre and post test results were within groups were compared using the paired t-test, whole differences between groups were compared using the independent t-test. The experimental group showed significantly enhanced results relative to the control group (p<0.05). Based on these results, trunk stability exercise in parallel with knee joint therapy effectively improves the recovery of patients with total knee arthroplasty.

  • Objectives : The knee pain is the main reason of getting acupuncture treatment. In order to have confidence in the results of a study, it is necessary to establish that questionnaire is both valid and reliable in questionnaire related study. The aim of this study was to review the instruments that are currently in sue for assessing the knee joint. Methods : A literature study was performed to choose appropriate scales for assessment for pain and the function of the knee. Theoretically based scales were selected for review. Therefore, 18 scales for knee and 9 scale for pain were reviewed. the status of scales involved in knee treatment of acupuncture throughout several countries was evaluated. Results & Conclusion : Lysholm Knee Scoring Scale, Cincinnati knee rating system(CKRS) are adequate for ligament injury in knee. International Knee Documentation Committee scoring system(IKDC) may become a publication requirement for journals in view of the international standing of the committee. The available outcome measure for use in osteoarthritis are Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index(WOMAC), Lequesne Functional Severity Index(LFI) and Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score(KOOS), and in rheumatoid arthritis are McMaster-Toronto Arthritis patient function preference questionnaire(MACTAR), Quality of Life-Rheumatoid Arthritis Scale(QoL-RA Scale). Visual analog scale(VAS), verbal rating scale(VRS) are commonly used for the standard pain scale. For long term follow-up study The Medical Outcomes Study Short Form-36(SF-36), Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales(AIMS), Health Assessment Questionnaire(HAQ) should be included. Each measurement has its own composition and characteristics. Their validity, reliability, responsiveness and practical characteristics were already evaluated. We found 20 domestic and 28 overseas papers about knee treatment using acupuncture assessed with knee scales.

  • Purpose : The purpose of this study was to compare the postoperative success and stability of arthroscopically assisted anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) reconstructions using the central one third bone patellar tendon bone(BPB) autograft versus a quadrupled semitendinosus/gracilis(ST) autograft in patients with "isolated" ACL tears. Materials & Methods : A strict criteria to identify isolated ACL tears was used which included : no previous surgery, no other ligamentous injury, no history of patellofemoral symptoms, no patellofemoral malalignment, no meniscal pathology, no chondromalacia or chondral injury and no limitation of motion of the injured knee. 30 patients (15 BPB, 15 ST) with a mean age of 27.4 years were available for a mean follow up of 18 months (between 12 months and 26 months). Preoperatively, there was no significant difference between the two groups with respect to age, sex and degree of laxity. Results : Postoperatively, we couldn't find significant differences between the two groups with respect to subjective Lysholm score, objective laxity including Lachman test, pivot shift test and KT-2000 measurements. Mean side to side difference of KT-2000 scores at 20lbs were 1.5mm for the BPB group and 1.4mm for the ST group. Positive Lachman test was found in 26.7% and 33.3% and positive pivot shift was found in 20% and 33.3% of the patients in the BPB and ST groups, respectively. Anterior knee pain (33.3%) was more common in the BPB group. There were 80% of the patients in both groups above nearly normal grade according to the IKDC grade. Conclusions : In patients with "isolated" ACL tears, the overall results, ligamentous stability for the patellar tendon and the quadrupled semitendinosus/gracilis were comparable. We consider that the quadrupled autogenous hamstring tendon is a good alternative substitute in ACL reconstruction together with the bone patellar tendon bone.

  • Purpose : The purpose was to assess the result of arthroscopic management of the septic arthritis on the knee in compromised patients. Materials and Methods : Fourteen patients with septic knee were analyzed. The mean age was 55 years and the mean follow-up period was 14.6 months. Underlying diseases included 4 cases of diabetes, and history of direct acupuncture in 4 cases. Clinical stage of septic arthritis was judged by $G\ddot{a}chter's$ classification, which was determined by arthroscopic findings. After arthroscopic irrigation and debridement, we observed the results of laboratory data and improvement of clinical findings. Results : Causative organism was identified in 7 cases and no organism was detected in the remaining 7 cases. Stage I was 1, stage II 8, stage III 4, and stage IV 1, respectively. Eleven of 14 cases were improved by one stage operation. Two cases of stage III were recurred and additional arthroscopic management was done. In 1 case of stage IV, symptom was not improved and needed arthrotomy. The result was unsatisfactory in patients with stage III and IV. Serum erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein were normalized after 29.3 and 20.8 days following the operation, respectively. Clinical symptoms disappeared average 2 days following the operation. Conclusion : Arthroscopic management of acute septic arthritis of the knee would be an effective and satisfactory treatment modality in that its postoperative pain and complications are minimal, and it can be done with ease repeatedly.
