In the early postoperative period, the strength of fixation of the graft is the critical point limiting aggressive rehabilitation. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Hamstring graft fixation using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices provide secure graft fixation and allows aggressive rehabilitation. We’re Offline Send message to seller.
In the postoperative period also none of the patient presented with infection, graft failure, graft slippage, restriction of movements or knee pain. Left side involvement was noticed in 20 patients Methods In a prospective study, the clinical Lysholm score and functional outcomes International Knee Documentation Committee, IKDC of 44 patients who underwent autologus hamstring graft ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices, were evaluated at the end of one year.
Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS software ver.
ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices
Hamstring graft fixation using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices provide secure graft fixation and allows aggressive rehabilitation. The fixation technique also should not hamper in revision ACL reconstruction intraix. Results The mean age of patients included in this study was The correlation coefficient of preoperative and postoperative KT was 0. Need to ship this item?

Similarly, preop and postop Lysholm score showed significant correlation with correlation coefficient of 0. The femoral tunnel was drilled up to mm depth with a reamer Fig. Certain technical tricks definitely helped us in avoiding intraoperative hurdles.
In anterior cruciate ligament ACL reconstruction, hamstring tendon grafts are replacing the popular bone-patellar tendon bone grafts that have been associated with femoro-tibial joint pain, loss of extension, and patellar tendon rupture. Knee Surg Relat Res. No evidences of neurovascular injury, infection, iatrogenic fracture or graft slippage or failure were inttrafix. Similarly the ACL footprint on the tibial attachment site was identified Fig.
ACL reconstruction using femoral Rigid-fix and tibial Bio-intrafix devices.
No intraoperative or postoperative complications were documented. December 26, In Stock: Surgical technique All reconstructions were carried out under regional or general anaesthesia, with the boi in a supine position. The mean anterior translation of tibia in the pre-op period was 7. After complete clinical and radiological evaluation, patients were arthroscopically treated with ACL reconstruction using hamstring graft.
On the basis of the improved results in graft compression as well as stability with this technique, they recommended their applied method for the reconstruction in ACL deficient knees.
Results None of the patients complained of instability, joint swelling or severe pain in the postoperative period. The mean pre-op IKDC score was Similarly, ligamentous stability as measured by KT showed significant improvement after ACL reconstruction.
TCP provides the osteoconductive bioceramic material necessary to promote bone growth into the sheath and screw. The mean age of patients included in this study was A prospective, randomized comparison of semitendinosus and gracilis tendon versus patellar tendon autografts for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: Chat with the Owner We’re Offline Send message to seller.
Several biomechanical and clinical studies have shown that femoral cross-pin and tibial Intrafix or Bio-intrafix devices provide increased strength and stiffness to the graft fixation. The Rigidfix guide frame was detached and removed. The clinical and functional outcome of this hybrid fixation technique is rewarding. Graft fixation on tibial side with Bio-intrafix screw after tensioning the graft with a tensioner 30N force. Second-look arthroscopy of anterior cruciate ligament grafts with multi-stranded hamstring tendons.
