  • Low Accuracy of Diagnostic Codes to Identify Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear in Orthopaedic Database Research. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Sports Med 2018 Aug 20; :363546518790507
  • Sanders TL, Pareek A, … Krych AJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates low accuracy with the use of diagnostic codes alone to identify an ACL tear. Database studies offer unique benefits to the medical literature, but the inherent limitations should be taken into account when these data are used to counsel patients, dictate clinical management, or make health care policy decisions. Information from a health care database is most accurate when accompanied by verification of diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes with medical chart review.
  • Effect of Initial Graft Tension During Calcaneofibular Ligament Reconstruction on Ankle Kinematics and Laxity. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Sports Med 2018 Aug 20; :363546518790254
  • Sakakibara Y, Teramoto A, … Yamashita T
  • CONCLUSIONS: Ankle kinematic patterns and laxity after CFL reconstruction tended to become more abnormal as the initial graft tension increased at the time of surgery. Moreover, excessive initial graft tension caused excessive tension on the reconstructed graft.This study indicated the importance of initial graft tension during CFL reconstruction. Overtensioning during CFL reconstruction should be avoided to imitate a normal ankle.
  • Effect of Anterolateral Complex Sectioning and Tenodesis on Patellar Kinematics and Patellofemoral Joint Contact Pressures. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Sports Med 2018 Aug 20; :363546518790248
  • Inderhaug E, Stephen JM, … Amis AA
  • CONCLUSIONS: This work did not find that an anterolateral injury altered patellofemoral mechanics or kinematics, but adding a lateral tenodesis can elevate lateral contact pressures and induce lateral patellar tilting if the tibia is pulled into external rotation by the tenodesis. Although these in vitro changes were small and might not be relevant in a fully loaded knee, controlling the position of the tibia at graft fixation is effective in avoiding overconstraint at time zero in a lateral tenodesis.Small changes in lateral patellar tilt and patellofemoral contact pressures were found at time zero with a MacIntosh tenodesis. These changes were eliminated when the tibia was held in neutral rotation at the time of graft fixation. The risk of overconstraint after a lateral tenodesis therefore seems low and in accordance with recent published reports.
