Do adjustable loops lengthen? Further research is needed to determine the clinical relevance of these findings relating the ACL replacement at ttechnique side. Our data showed that the Bio Cross-Pin fixation had lower laxity during cyclic loading than EndoButton. Orthopedic Journal of China Several techniques have been proposed to ensure accurate placement of the EndoButton and lessen the probability of malpositioning.

Care is taken to ensure that the femoral and tibial tunnels are created anatomically in every patient. The microfracture awl is positioned at the centre of the ACL femoral attachment site. Establishing the AM portal at the correct height above the medial joint line is extremely important to the success of the procedure. Please review our privacy policy. Services on Demand Journal.

Support Center Support Center. The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. Iliotibial band irritation caused by the EndoButton after anatomic double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: This more accurate technique not only allows for better visualization but also leads to a decrease in the rate of failure of the ACL reconstruction.

Morphology of anterior cruciate ligament attachments for anatomic reconstruction: In some knees it may be possible to identify a second bony ridge, the lateral bifurcate ridge, which separates the attachment sites of the AM and PL bundle fibres techhnique 9 ].

The knee range of motion in Endobutton and Rigidfix were Patient positioning It is important to have the ability to achieve full, unrestricted knee flexion during the procedure. ACL reconstruction using the medial portal technique is facilitated by using three arthroscopic portals Fig.


ACL reconstruction suture button – ENDOBUTTON – Smith & Nephew

The drill tip femoral guide pin exits the lateral soft tissues in the mid-thigh region and is thus directed techniqe from the peroneal nerve and posterior neurovascular structures. Mechanical testing Immediately after the graft fixation, each femur was clamped to a custom device with bone cement PMMA and screws. How to cite this article: The tibial guide pin is positioned slightly anterior to the posterior margin of the endobytton horn of the lateral meniscus and slightly medial to the midline of the insertion site.

Remnant ligament fibres of the native ACL are seen along the lower third of the lateral wall of the notch.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Fluoroscopy gives the surgeon the ability to intra-operatively measure and change the ACL femoral tunnel position, and also serves as a quality control for the ACL femoral tunnel position.

A new anatomical ACL femoral tunnel was drilled through an Endlbutton portal bypassing the original non-anatomical femoral tunnel. Double-bundle reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament. This step will ease future instrument passage through the AAM portal. A probe can be inserted through the same portal to help manipulate the EndoButton into the proper position at the lateral cortex of the femur by pulling the graft on the tibial side.

Thus the aim of this study was compare the clinical results of reconstructing arthroscopic ACL of the knee through two methods namely Rigidfix and Endobutton. Closure Finally the knee stability is tested and all wounds are closed. The existence of different methods makes it difficult to compare results. Introduction Anatomical placement of an anterior cruciate ligament ACL graft is considered critical to the success and clinical outcome of ACL reconstruction.

Journal of Arthroscopy and Related Surgery.

ACL Technique: Endoscopic Hamstring Graft with Endobutton

The arrow indicates the EndoButtons of the anteromedial and posterolateral graft. Injury to arteries, such as the lateral superior genicular artery, is possible.


Rigidfix technique Click here to view. The mechanics of the knee joint in relation to normal walking. D Removed soft tissue beneath migrated EndoButton arrow. The additional medial portal allows the ACL femoral attachment site to be viewed through the AM portal, while working instrumentation is inserted into the notch through the AAM portal. Keeping the operating room table flat and using a thigh post and one or two foot rests allows full unrestricted knee flexion and facilitates performance of the procedure.

This can result in bleeding and a loss of joint visualisation due to encroachment of the fat pad into the notch. Fact, myth, or common sense: As will be discussed later, viewing through the AM portal is the preferred method to visualise the ACL femoral attachment site.

ICMJE author disclosure forms: Insert a motorised shaver blade into the knee joint through the AM portal and resect the midsection of the ACL.

Tdchnique of two cases. The aim of the paper is to describe the medial portal technique for anatomical single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament ACL reconstruction.

In theory, the stiffness is an important variable to be considered. Any techniqque of the ruler as the scope is moved should be avoided. Comparison between different femoral fixation devices for ACL reconstruction with doubled hamstring tendon graft: An ipsilateral semitendinosus and gracilis autograft is used in every case. Biomechanical properties of quadruple tendon and patellar tendon femoral fixation techniques.

Right Rt knee with endoscopic visualization from lateral femoral LF portal. Draw two lines perpendicular to that line, one at the intersection of the tangent line with the shallow border of the lateral femoral condyle and the other with intersection of the tangent line and the deep endobuttoh of the lateral femoral condyle.
