  • Purpose : To evaluate the clinical results after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring tendon and Ligament Anchor (LA) screw Materials and Methods : 103 patients (104 cases) who were followed up at least more than 2 years after ACL reconstruction were included in this study. The average period of follow-up was 36 months. The clinical results such as physical examination and Lysholm knee score and instrumented anterior laxity test with Telos were evaluated. Results : The Lysholm knee score was 57.9 in average preoeratively and improved to 95.2 in average at follow up. On the Lachman test, there were mild (+) instability in 46 cases $(45\%)$, moderate (++) in 33 $(31\%)$, severe (+++) in 25 $(24\%)$ preoperatively. 90 cases $(87\%)$ were converted to negative and 14 $(13\%)$ to mild at follow up. On Pivot-shift test, there were negative (-) instability in 22 cases $(22\%)$, mild (+) in 62 $(59\%)$, moderate (++) in 12 $(11\%)$ and severe in 8 $(8\%)$ preoperatively. 87 cases $(84\%)$ were converted to negative and 17 $(16\%)$ to mild at follow up. On instrumented anterior laxity test with $Telos^{\circledR}$, side to side difference on 20 lb was $13.4{\pm}5.6$ (7-25) mm in average preoperatively, and was decreased to $3.6{\pm}1.5$ (1-6) mm in average at follow-up. Complications were quadriceps muscle atrophy in 27 $(30.0\%)$, saphenous nerve paresthesia in 19 $(18.3\%)$, anterior knee crepitus in 13 $(12.5\%)$ and over-penetration of screw through lateral femoral cortex in 5 cases $(4.8\%)$. Conclusion : ACL reconstruction with hamstring tendon and LA screw was one of the choice of graft and fixatives in restoring knee stability and in improving clinical results with little complications such as anterior knee pain.

  • Purpose : To analysis each clinical results after arthroscopic ACL reconstruction with using variable fixatives which are metallic and bioabsorbable interference screw, and RIGIDfix. Therefore, We reported the clinical reliability and safty of ACL reconstruction using RIGIDfix. Materials and Methods : We evaluated the results of arthroscopic ACL resconstruction with patellar tendon autograft among three groups, of which group 1 is used metal interference screw for 44 patients, group 2 used bioabsorbable interference screw for 47 patients, group 3 used RIGIDfix for 42 patients. We compared the clinical results by physical examination (anterior drawer test, Lachman test and pivot shift test), Lysholm score and KT-2000 arthrometer and compared the radiological results by measurement of tunnel and fixatives position and widening and by MRI findings. We analyzed the results by SAS 8.2 Ducan. Tukey and paired t-test Results : Physical instability was in 5 cases, which group 2 had 4 cases and group 3 had 1 case. Lysholm score improved from 59.8. 64.4, 61 to 90.1, 92.3. 92. KT-2000 arthrometer instability improved from 9.20, 10.2, 9.5 to 1.43. 1.62. 2.00 (p=0.478). Radiologically, all cases had excellent tunnel position and cyst change was observed the 8 cases in the group 2, but, all 20 cases 2nd MRI had signal change of peri-fixatives. But, no correlation of clinical results. Conclusion : No statistical difference of clinical instability was found among three groups. And femoral tunnel changes were much observed in group I, II than III. We considered the RIGIDfix has much advantages because the short operation time, better fixation position and much bone contact surface. But, further long term follow up study was needed.

  • Purpose: To evaluate the clinical stability and function after one-stage revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using fresh-frozen Achilles tendon allograft Materials and Methods: Thirteen patients who underwent one-stage revision ACL reconstruction using Achilles tendon allograft could be evaluated. The average time from primary procedure to revision surgery was 61.8 months. The mean follow-up period was 38.4 months. The bone defects of pre-constructed femoral and tibial tunnels were filled with calcaneal bone attached to Achilles tendon and the new femoral and tibial tunnels were created. Evaluations included the causes of failure of primary ACL reconstruction, Lysholm knee score, Lachman test, pivot shift test and KT-1000 arthrometer measurement. Results: The most common causes of failure of ACL reconstruction were poor surgical techniques in 10 cases (76.9%). Ten patients (76.9%) were good or excellent on the Lysholm score. Twelve patients (92.3%) had negative or 1+firm end Lachman test. Eleven patients (84.6%) had negative pivot shift test. Nine patients (69.2%) had less than 3 mm difference of manual maximum by KT-1000 arthrometer. Conclusion: One-stage revision ACL reconstruction with fresh-frozen Achilles tendon allograft, creating new tunnels after filling bone defects, resulted in a reliable and predictable outcome in terms of stability.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the result of arthroscopic treatment in septic knee arthritis and evaluate the prognostic factor over 50 years old. Materials and Methods: Fifty-two patients were treated by arthroscope for septic knee arthritis from January, 2002 to August, 2005. The mean follow-up period was 27.5months. We assessed Lysholm score as functional result, CRP normalized period as laboratory result, and knee range of motion as clinical result. We evaluated patient's age, underlying disease, causative organism, previous knee status (Kellgren stage), clinical status of septic arthritis (G$\ddot{a}$chter stage) and history of intra-articular injection as prognostic factor. Results: Mean Lysholm score was improved from 40.7 to 67.1. And the mean CRP normalized period was 38.7days. At last follow-up, almost patient (92%) were recovered to prior knee full range of motion and 45 patient (74%) were completely cured by one stage operation. The microorganism isolated were MSSA (n=13), MSSE (n=3), MRSA/MRSE (n=4),no microorganism (n=27) and others (n=5). In Lysholm score, young age (42.8(preop.)$\rightarrow$83.5(postop.)), Kellgren stage 0 ($45.5{\rightarrow}84.2$), G$\ddot{a}$chter stage I ($39.3{\rightarrow}73.1$) and no microorganism (442.1{\rightarrow}72.6$) were more increased than old age (439.3{\rightarrow}61.7$), Kellgren IV ($28.3{\rightarrow}43.7$), G$\ddot{a}$chter stage IV ($40.2{\rightarrow}67.1$) and MRSA/MRSE ($40{\rightarrow}58.75$). In case of old age (42.3days), G$\ddot{a}$chter stage IV (55.5), Kellgren stage IV(43.7), DM patient (42.1) and intra-articular injection history (52.1), the CRP titer normalized period was longer than mean period. MRSA/MRSE(n=3,75%) were not normalized in CRP titer at last follow-up. Conclusion: Arthroscopic treatment of septic knee would be an effective and satisfactory procedure. Age, previous knee status (Kellgren stage), underlying disease (DM), intra-articular injection history, microorganism and Ga¨chter stage effect end result outcome.

  • Purpose : We intend to review clinical results after Anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) reconstruction using hamstring tendon arthroscopically. Materials & Methods : Sixty two patients who had underwent arthroscopic ACL reconstruction using hamstring tendon from Mar. 1996 to Mar. 1997 were reviewed. The average follow-up was 16 months and average age at operation was 27 years old. Clinical results were evaluated with physical examination, Lysholm Knee score and instrumented anterior laxity test with Telos Results : The average preoperative Lysholm knee score was 57.0 and postoperative average of that was 91.8. All cases of 62 patients had normal range of motion of knee and were able to walk with no problems at follow-up. On the Lachmann test, there were mild(+) instability in 24 cases, moderate(++) in 24 cases, severe(+++) in 14 cases preoperatively and 48 cases were converted to negative, 14 cases mild postoperatively. On instrumented anterior laxity test with Telos, difference between normal and affected knee on 20 lb which was 13.4mm preoperatively was decreased to 4.7mm at follow-up and anterior stability was regained(P<0.05). Parapatellar complications such as crepitus in 18 cases(29.5%), atrophy of quadriceps in 23 cases(36.5%) were observed. There were 2 cases of inaccuracy of guide pin of semifix screw intraoperatively and 3 cases of malposition of semifix screw postoperatively. Conclusion : ACL reconstruction using hamstring tendon seems to be a effective procedure to establish the stability of knee joint but is technically demanding procedure and leaves some parapatellar complications.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is comparison of clinical outcomes in ACL reconstruction between auto-hamstring tendon and allo-tibialis anterior tendon. Materials and Methods: In this prospective study, we included 60 subjects who underwent ACL reconstruction using 30 hamstring autograft(mainly, national health insurance) and 30 tibialis anterior allograft(including MVA and industrial injuries) between May 2003 and June 2005 by a single surgeon, with a minimum follow-up of 12 months. Outcome measurements were the range of motion, the Lachman test, the IKDC score, the Lysholm score, KT-1000 arthrometer and one-leg hop test. Results: For all the cases, the range of motion was above 135 degrees. The Lachman test, KT-1000 arthrometer and one-leg hop test showed no significant difference between two groups. The IKDC score of auto-hamstring group($87.840{\pm}2.106$) was significantly higher than that of allo-tibialis anterior group($85.273{\pm}2.782$). The Lysholm score of auto-hamstring group($88.067{\pm}2.586$) was also significantly higher than that of allo-tibialis anterior group($85.300{\pm}3.030$). Conclusion: The results of ACL reconstruction using the auto-hamstring tendon and allo-tibialis anterior tendon showed no significant difference in objective items but auto-hamstring group showed better results in subjective scoring. This difference may result from individual factors such as economic problem, secondary gain.

  • Purpose: To evaluate the clinical results of the patients who underwent radiofrequency thermal shrinkage (RFTS) for treatment of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) laxity after ACL reconstruction. Material and Methods: From October 1999 to March 2006, we performed 133 cases of ACL reconstruction. Among them we experienced 16 patients who had the laxity of reconstructed ACL in second look arthroscopy. Mean follow-up was 20.4 months. Mean age was 33.5 years. 12 cases were male and 4 cases were female. The elongated ACL were treated by bipolar radiofrequency energy with an output of grade II. Subjective and objective parameters were utilized in analyses, such as: the mean range of motion, Lysholm knee score, Tegner activity score, Lachman test, IKDC score. Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used to perform the data analysis. P<0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results: Postoperative mean Lysholm knee score (preop: $82.2{\pm}5.2(77{\sim}85))$ (P=0.04), postop: $85.2{\pm}4.8$(82-90)) and anterior displacement by the Telos stress test (preop: $5.4{\pm}4.6(3{\sim}10)mm$, postop: $2.1{\pm}1.9(0{\sim}4)mm)$ (P=0.02), Lachman's test, and IKDC scores (P=0.04) demonstrated significant differences statistically compared to the preoperative. There were no statistical differences in mean range of motion, Tegner activity scale. Conclusions: Arthroscopic shrinkage for the ACL laxity after ACL reconstruction with radiofrequency device showed good clinical results and was applicable operative technique.

  • Purpose: To analyze the clinical result of the arthroscopic reduction and fixation for the displaced tibial spine fractures in children and report the utility of the arthroscopic treatment with the review of the literature. Methods: Between December 2000 and July 2004, five patients (average age 9.1 years) received an arthroscopic reduction and fixation of displaced tibial spine fracture. A male-to-female ratio was 3:2 and mean follow-up was 38.2$(13{\sim}56)$ months. All five patients were classified type III by Movers and McKeever classification. The average period from injury to operation was 4.8 days $(3{\sim}8days)$, the avulsed fragment was reduced by operative arthroscopy and fixated by pull-out suture in 3 patients and by cannulated screw in 2 patients. Postoperatively long leg cast was applied for 2 weeks, and then gradual range-of-motion exercise was permitted. Full weight-bearing ambulation was permitted after 6 weeks. The clinical evaluation was performed by range of motion, Lachman and pivot shift test, KT-1000 arthrometer, Lysholm knee score and the modified Feagin score. Results: All five patients had no symptom and recovered full range of motion of the affected knees. Lachman test was positive finding of 1+ laxity in one patient, the others were negative, and all patients were negative findings for pivot shift test. The result of KT-1000 arthrometric assessment is mean maximum side-to-side differences 1.9 mm. Average Lysholm knee score was 99.4. All patients had excellent results in modified Feagin score. Conclusion: Arthroscopic reduction and fixation of displaced tibial spine fracture in children showed excellent result without complication. Both pull-out suture fixation and cannulated fixation provide an effective treatment option for fixation of the displaced anterior tibial spine fracture.

  • Purpose: To compare the stability and clinical result after anterior cruciate ligament reconstructed knee after graft fixation using Intrafix in tibial tunnel with or without additional tibial post fixation. Materials and Methods: We analyzed 37 cases which were treated with four-strand hamstring tendon autograft during the period from May 2002 to January 2003. The grafts were fixed with Rigidfix system (Mitek Product, Johnson and Johnson, USA) in femur tunnel and Intrafix system (Mitek Product, Johnson and Johnson, USA) in tibial tunnel. After tibial fixation, additional tibial post fixation was done, which was determined by the serial case number prospectively. Patients were followed for average of fourteen months(range, thirteen to twenty-five months) At the time of final follow-up, patients were evaluated in terms of Lachman test, pivot shift test, Lysholm scores, IKDC (International Knee Documentation Committee) assessment, side-to-side KT-1000 maximum-manual arthrometer differences. Results: At last follow-up, Lysholm score was average 93.1(range: 65 to 98), IKDC assessment revealed that 26 cases had score of A, 10 cases had score of B and 1 case had score of C. The average maximum-manual KT-1000 arthrometer side ?to-side difference was 2.5 mm$(0{\sim}6mm)$. There was one case in which the Lachman test was graded as 2+ and four cases in which the Lachman test was graded as 1+ and the remaining thirty-two cases were normal by Lachman test. One case had a 2+ pivot-shift, and 2 cases had a 11 pivot-shift. The remaining 34 knees were normal on pivot -shift testing. The average maximum-manual KT-1000 arthrometer side-to-side difference was average 2.8 mm$(0{\sim}6mm)$ in Intrafix only group and average 2.2 mm$(0{\sim}4mm)$ in additional fixation group (P>0.05). Conclusion: Without additional tibial fixation, the stability of the anterior cruciate reconstructed knee with hamstring graft which was fixed with Intrafix was restored.
