Arthroscopic Revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: Report of 5 Cases

Abstract

From March 1992 to June 1994, we experienced five failed cases of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Four out of five cases had reconstruction in other hospitals. Two of them had anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using artificial ligament, one using bone-patellar tendon-bone auto- graft, and one using bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft augmented by artificial ligament. The remaining one case had arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligment reconstruction using bone-patellar ten- don-bone autograft in Asan Medical Center. We performed arthroscopic revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using allograft in four cases and bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft in one case. All cases were treated with vigorous postoperative rehabilitation program including postoperative immediate range of motion(ROM) exercise and muscle strengthening exercise. Postoperative results were evaluated by Lysholm knee score in average 17.2 months(range from 12 months to 25 months). The average Lysholm score improved from 49.8 to 81.4. At follow-up study, anterior drawer test with Telos device revealed 2mm of average side to difference.
