A Good Candidate for Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction
You are likely to be a candidate for ACL reconstructive surgery if you have torn or partially torn the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This may be resultant of a sudden turn or pivot, decelerating quickly, falling a certain way or awkwardly landing after jumping.
The tearing of the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is a common, yet painful injury, particularly among athletes. An ACL tear often happens when an abrupt movement is made or a sudden change of direction causes excessive pressure on the ligament.
Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction Procedure
Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction is a minimally invasive surgery, alternatively to open surgery, the surgeon is able to see and work on the knee with the guidance of an arthroscope. Incisions are considerably smaller than a conventional surgery. Commonly, a patient will go in for an arthroscopic diagnosis, at which point, if necessary, the doctor is able to perform an Arthroscopic ACL Repair at the same time.
The knee is cleaned out with a saline solution to ensure more accurate visibility. Once the initial incision has been closed, the rest of the operation consists of recreating the new joint for which the replacement ACL can be fixed and repositioned with the guidance of a small video camera, or arthroscope. A pin is inserted diagonally from the tibia to the femur. The knee is then flexed several times to test the new joint.
Average Length of Hospitalization: 2-3 days.
Risks and Side Effects of Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction
As with all surgeries there are associated risks. Some knee surgery risks may include: adverse reaction to the anesthesia, including heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia, and blood clots.
Although risks are rare, they may increase with the age of the patient. Blood clots are the most common dangers, however they occur infrequently. Other risks include infections at the surgery site or at skin level, bleeding, and scarring.
Recovery from Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction
Patients who undergo ACL Reconstruction Surgery usually need to attend physical therapy and wear a knee brace for the amount of time prescribed by the doctor. Depending on the program suggested by the doctor, athletes can be back in training anywhere from 6-9 months after surgery.
Normal indications of ligament surgery are pain, initial immobility and inflexibility, bracing of the leg, and crutch dependence. Increased mobility and flexibility transpires with rehabilitation. Full recovery to the level of prior physical activity can take up to three months.
Results of Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction
Individuals who have undergone ACL surgery should know that reconstruction will restore stability to the knee. Surgically reconstructed knees are reliable and stable. The knee will allow the person to return to previous work and athletic activities, typically without any compromises.
