AL Instability, Surgical Techniques, Future and Biology, Return to Sport
L’ouvrage réunit les publications sur le Ligament Croisé Antérieur présentées lors des 17èmes Journées Lyonnaises de Chirurgie du Genou en Septembre 2016.
« The ACL is THE ligament that entertains many surgeons in the orthopaedic world. while this ligament is cut with confidence in 100% of total knee arthroplasty procedures, we are still struggling to reconstruct it in a perfect way.
Indeed we have an unfortunately large number of failures – many of which are due to surgical mistakes. A critical and often overlooked part of performing an ACL reconstruction is to analyze all of the associated structures :
What is the role and importance of the so-called anterolateral ligament or the anterolateral complex ? How much do surgical technique, graft choice, tunnel location, and fixation methods influence outcomes ? What is the role of biology and the menisci in restoring stability ? Finally, what impact to rehabilitation, proprioception, muscular control and strength, and neurologic control have on return to sport following ACL reconstruction ?
We will develop and try to understand all of these aspects of ACL reconstruction. »
