  1. 1. Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction - Early predictors of outcome

    Author : Thorkell Snaebjörnsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Knee; ACL; registry; hamstring tendon; anterior cruciate ligament; patellar tendon; graft failure; graft fixation; graft diameter; autograft; revision; outcome;

    Abstract : The rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a serious injury, often resulting in functional instability and increased laxity of the knee joint. Patients suffering an ACL injury run the risk of further complications, such as meniscal or cartilage injury in the short term and degeneration of the knee joint in the long term. READ MORE

  2. 2. Predictors of Outcome after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

    Author : Eric Hamrin Senorski; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; anterior cruciate ligament; ACL; reconstruction; physcial therapy; concomitant injury; knee; predictors; outcome;

    Abstract : An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is one of the most common injuries to the knee joint. It is also one of the most researched areas within sports medicine, orthopedics and physical therapy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction : Anatomic and biomechanical considerations of graft placement and fixation

    Author : Lars Good; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This study, comprising 7 separate papers, is concerned with the mechanical causes of graft failure after intraarticular reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The study is predominantly experimental in design, but a clinical follow-up is also included to test a causal hypothesis of secondary graft elongation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic knee stability after anterior cruciate ligament injury : Emphasis on rehabilitation

    Author : Sofi Tagesson (Sonesson); Joanna Kvist; Birgitta Öberg; Suzanne Werner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rehabilitation; anterior cruciate ligament; knee joint; joint instability; muscle strength; electromyography; ACL reconstruction; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Anterior cruciate ligament injury leads to increased sagittal tibial translation, and perceptions of instability and low confidence in the knee joint are common. Many patients have remaining problems despite treatment and are forced to lower their activity level and prematurely end their career in sports. READ MORE

  5. 5. Treatment Decision after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury, and Evaluation of Measurement Properties of a Patient Reported Outcome Measure

    Author : Hanna Tigerstrand Grevnerts; Joanna Kvist; Sofi Sonesson; Håkan Gauffin; Clare Ardern; Eva Ageberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; anterior cruciate ligament injury; ACL; ACL reconstruction; ACLR; choice of treatment; IKDC; measurement properties; evaluation;

    Abstract : Background: After an ACL injury, treatment aims to restore knee function. Evaluation of treatment progress is important, and adequate measurement methods are necessary. The International Knee Documentation Committee- Subjective Knee Form (IKDC-SKF) is a common patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) used after ACL injury. READ MORE
