Author's abstract

A retrospective study to determine the efficacy of augmentation with an u-shaped PDS cord for the acute anterior cruciate ligament tears of the knee is presented. The two cords protect the anterior-medial and the posterior-lateral bundle of the anterior cruciate ligament. The post-surgical immobilisation is therefore not necessary. We operated 104 patients in this way. The main surgery to follow-up interval was 1-3 years. 95% of patients were subjectively improved, 4% continued to have pain and continued to experience giving way. Physical examination demonstrated in 1% a postsurgical instability. We recommend the procedure as a primary ACL repair. Verf.-Referat
