  • Purpose: We reported the results of arthroscopically assisted lateral release and medial imbrication for the recurrent patella dislocation. Materials and Methods: Twenty patients (20 knees) underwent arthroscopically assisted surgery for the recurrent patella dislocation. There were 4 males and 16 female. The average age was 20.2 years. All patients had definite trauma history and average follow-up period was 19 months. The surgical results were evaluated according to the Lysholm knee score and the Kujala score. The congruence angle and lateral patellofemoral angle were measured on plain radiograph and the tibial tubercle-trochlear groove distance was calculated on computerized tomography. Results: The median value of preoperative congruence angle was $16.5^{\circ}$ (range, $0.0{\sim}+34^{\circ}$) and the average final follow-up was $-6.4^{\circ}$ (range, $-19{\sim}10^{\circ}$) with statistically significant improvement (p=0.025). The median value of preoperative Lysholm knee score was 70 (range, 63~81) and the final follow-up score had changed to 88 (range, 80~95) with statistically significant improvement (p=0.0341). The median value of preoperative Kujala score was 72 (range, 65~80) and the average final follow-up score showed 87 (range, 80~92) with statistically significant improvement (p=0.024). Recurrent dislocations after surgery occurred in 2 cases, one case which showed positive "thumb to forearm test" had been treated with medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction. Conclusion: Arthroscopically assisted lateral release and medial imbrication for recurrent patella dislocation without bony malaligmenent showed the effective treatment, but would be inappropriate for the patients with the generalized joint laxity.

  • Purpose: This study was planned to evaluate complications? of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction with tibial inlay technique using autogenous bone-patellar tendon-bone graft. Materials and Methods: From September 1994 to January 2004, we analyzed surgical complications in fifty-seven patients with fifty-eight cases who underwent PCL reconstruction. Fifty of them were male and seven female. The mean age of the patients was 35(15$\~$73). Twenty eight cases of injury were isolated PCL, while thirty cases had associated injury of knee. The causes of injury were thirty-nine cases of traffic accident, seven sport injuries, seven fall down injuries, and five of others. The follow-up study was done at 4 weeks, 3 months,6 months and 1 year after surgery. KT-2000 arthrometer and posterior stress X-ray were used to examine the stability of the knee joint and the Lysholm Knee Score and a variety of clinical complications were evaluated. Results: Although the mean score of the preoperative Lysholm Knee Score was 43.2, the postoperative score was increased to 87.9. The preoperative mean value of knee stability using KT-2000 arthrometer was 8.75 mm(6.2$\~$14.3 mm) but the postoperative mean was 3.41 mm(2.1$\~$10.6 mm). The intraoperative complications were: one case of popliteal artery injury with compartment syndrome, one case of patellar fracture, two cases of 20$^{\circ}$ flexion loss, and two cases of anterior cortical penetration of the screw through proximal tibia during screw fixation. The postoperative complications were: eleven cases of knee instability, one case of patellar fracture, five cases of extension loss, thirteen cases of flexion loss, twenty-one cases of around knee pain and eight cases of kneeling pain. Conclusion: After PCL reconstruction with tibial inlay technique using autogenous bone-patella tendon-bone graft, complications were observed in this study. Careful attention during and after the operation, as well as rehabilitation must be required.

  • Purpose: This study performed to compare degree of joint stiffness and clinical results between early and delayed reconstruction of acute posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries. Materials and Methods: Thirty-two Patients who underwent PCL reconstruction between March 2008 and October 2011 enrolled this study. We performed transtibial single bundle reconstruction using the allo-achilles tendon in all cases. We divided the patient into two groups, early reconstruction group underwent surgery before a week, delayed reconstruction group underwent surgery after 3 weeks, before 6 weeks. All the patients underwent aggressive joint motion exercise till surgery and enrolled post operative rehabilitation program. We checked posterior drawer stress radiography, range of motion, the Lysholm score, the International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) score and the Tegner score to evaluate the results. Results: At the final follow up the Lysholm score was 92.1 in the early group and 93.8 in the delayed group. All the cases were rated above B (near normal) on IKDC score (p=0.808, p=0.722). The Tegner score was 6.6 in the early reconstruction group and 6.2 in the delayed group (p=0.480), The average of maximum flexion and extension angle was $133.9^{\circ}$, $1.4^{\circ}$ in the early group and $133.6^{\circ}$, $1.1^{\circ}$ in the delayed group (p=0.560, p=0.581), no complication such as deep vein thrombosis or infection, no difference in posterior drawer stress radiography (p=0.750). Conclusion: We could obtain satisfactory clinical results in both the early and delayed reconstruction groups of acute PCL injuries. Therefore, the early reconstruction of PCL performed before a week could be one of the treatment options for acute PCL injury.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to analyze the merits and demerits of double bundle reconstruction and achieve improvements hereafter, by comparing the results of double bundle and single bundle reconstruction using tibialis anterior allograft. Materials and Methods: Twenty seven patients were divided to undergo either double bundle(n=14) or single bundle(n=13) reconstruction with tibialis anterior allograft tendon. The evaluation methods were AP laxity with KT-2000 arthrometer, isokinetic knee strength measurements, pivot-shift test, IKDC subjective score, Lysholm knee score, Tegner activity score, radiographic evaluations with postoperative MRI, and second look arthroscopy. Results: Lysholm knee score and Tegner activity score were significantly better in double bundle reconstruction. In pivot-shift test, single bundle reconstruction was evaluated as grade 0 in 10 of the knees, grade 1 in 1, and grade 2 in 2. Double bundle reconstruction was evaluated as grade 0 in 13, and grade 2 in 1. In second look arthroscopy, single bundle was evaluated as excellent in 6 of the knees, fair in 7, anteromedial bundle of double bundle reconstruction was excellent in 13 and fair in 1, and posterolateral bundle was excellent in 4, fair in 9, and poor in 1. There were no significant differences in other evaluations. Conclusion: Favorable outcome may be expected with double bundle reconstruction of ACL. However there are still need for improvement in terms of reconstruction technique and rehabilitation protocol to reduce PL bundle injury.

  • In this study, we propose a rehabilitation protocol involving Korean medicine for patients after high tibial osteotomy (HTO) and report its effectiveness. Three patients underwent HTO using the rehabilitation protocol involving Korean medicine. We estimated the outcome evaluating physical examination findings of the knee joint, numeric rating scale, pain disability index, Lysholm knee score, and walking state. After the treatment, we observed that knee movement and muscular strength were improved. In addition, the numeric rating scale, pain disability index, Lysholm knee score, and walking state of patients were improved. Therefore, a rehabilitation protocol involving Korean medicine can be effectively used for patients after HTO. The limitation of this study was the insufficient number of cases and the difficulty of follow-up because of the characteristics of this operation and the long periods of time that are needed for each phase of the protocol. Further studies are needed to design a rehabilitation protocol involving Korean medicine.
