Överskrift The effect of injury chronicity and progressive rehabilitation on single-incision arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
Beskrivning We conducted a prospective study on 50 consecutive patients who received a single-incision arthroscopic patellar tendon autograft reconstruction for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. The purposes were to determine if differences existed in results between patients with acute and chronic ACL ruptures, and if a progressive rehabilitation program could safely return patients to sports activities early without compromising knee stability. Forty-two patients (84%) returned for follow-up a mean of 31 months postoperatively. Twenty-one patients had acute ruptures, and 21, chronic ruptures. A progressive rehabilitation program was used by 28 patients (67%) who met strict criteria, which allowed early return to running and sports activities. The results were rated with the Cincinnati Knee Rating System. We found no effect of either injury chronicity or time to return to activity for 21 factors, including anterior-posterior displacement, patellofemoral crepitus, range of knee motion, quadriceps muscle strength, symptoms, functional limitations, or the patient rating of outcome. Using arthrometer and pivot-shift test data, 30 knees (71%) had a functional reconstruction; 8 knees (19%) had partial function; and 4 knees (10%) failed. Patients expressed satisfaction with the operation as follows: 23 (55%) rated their overall knee condition as normal; 16 (38%), very good; and 3 (7%), good. No patients rated their knee condition as fair or poor.
