3D Animation on Torn ACL Procedures

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of four ligaments that are crucial to the stability of your knee. It is a strong fibrous tissue that connects the femur to the tibia. A partial or complete tear of your ACL will cause your knee to become less stable and feel as though your knee is about to give out. The following videos will describe the different options available to repair or replace your torn ACL.

Improve your Understanding of Meniscus Problems

meniscus repair2The two crescent-shaped menisci in each knee absorb shock, disperse weight, and reduce friction when the knee moves. Activities such as walking or jumping transfer large amounts of force through the knee joints. Consequently meniscus damage is among the more common knee injuries. A torn meniscus generally results from forcefully twisting or pivoting the knee with the foot planted, such as occurs during certain sports.

Tears can also result from repetitive kneeling or rising from a squatting position while lifting a load, or from wear over time as a normal consequence of aging. People usually notice pain when the tear initially occurs but are often still able to walk or continue their sporting activity; increasing pain, swelling, and stiffness typically follow the day after the injury. Other symptoms include pain with motion, instability, limited range of motion, and sometimes a popping or locking sensation if a piece of torn meniscus lodges elsewhere in the joint.

3D Animation on MPFL Reconstruction to Stabilize the Knee

Insert alt text here

We are excited to announce the latest HD addition to our animation library on MPFL (medial patellofemoral ligament) Reconstruction. The kneecap or patella is a triangular-shaped free floating bone that is an important part of the knee joint. The patella rests in a groove on your femur called the trochlea , and glides smoothly in this groove when the knee bends and straightens. The medial patellofemoral ligament or MPFL is a ligament on the inside of the knee that helps to stabilize the patella in the trochlea by preventing it from moving or dislocating outward.

Patellar instability is a condition in which the patella slips out of the trochlea, either partially, called subluxation, or fully, called dislocation. The MPFL is usually torn or stretched in the process, making future dislocations more likely.

MPFL reconstruction is a commonly recommended surgical procedure for patients who have experienced repeated patellar dislocations. The surgery involves the reconstruction of the MPFL with the patient’s own tissue or with that of a donor in order to stabilize the knee and allow the patient to return to normal activity.
