Amis AA, Bull AMJ, Lie DTT, 2005, Biomechanics of rotational instability and anatomic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics, Vol: 15, Pages: 29-35, ISSN: 1048-6666

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the primary restraint to tibial anterior translation (anterior draw). Tibial anterior draw is normally accompanied by a "coupled" tibial internal rotation. Both internal rotation and anterior translation can be increased by rupture of the ACL, resulting in a large movement of the mobile lateral tibial plateau. Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction adequately restores the anterior draw; however, the peripheral structures that are the primary restraints to tibial rotation often are neglected. Recent work has shown that a residual or "mini" pivot shift can remain after successfully restoring the anterior-posterior laxity of the knee. The search for a better restoration of normal kinematics has reawakened interest in double-bundle reconstructions. Although biomechanical studies have demonstrated that this type of reconstruction may better restore the normal kinematics, there is as yet no clinical evidence. Draw testing should now be superseded by kinematics measures of both rotations and translations of the knee with quantified loads to provide objective measures that better assess the efficacy of new surgical techniques. © 2005 Elsevier Inc.

Mountney J, Senavongse W, Amis AA, Thomas NPet al., 2005, Tensile strength of the medial patellofemoral ligament before and after repair or reconstruction, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery - Series B, Vol: 87, Pages: 36-40, ISSN: 0301-620X

The tensile strength of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), and of surgical procedures which reconstitute it, are unknown. Ten fresh cadaver knees were prepared by isolating the patella, leaving only the MPFL as its attachment to the medial femoral condyle. The MPFL was either repaired by using a Kessler suture or reconstructed using either bone anchors or one of two tendon grafting techniques. The tensile strength and the displacement to peak force of the MPFL were then measured using an Instron materials-testing machine. The MPFL was found to have a mean tensile strength of 208 N (SD 90) at 26 mm (SD 7) of displacement. The strengths of the other techniques were: sutures alone, 37 N (SD 27); bone anchors plus sutures, 142 N (SD 39); blind-tunnel tendon graft, 126 N (SD 21); and through-tunnel tendon graft, 195 N (SD 66). The last was not significantly weaker than the MPFL itself. © 2005 British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery.
