Sample text

Thickness of the patella The patella is often thin, especially on the lateral side. The residual thickness of the patella after resection must be such that there is no risk of fracture. The fracture’s risk increased in patella wiberg III. In practical terms, this means a thickness of at least 13mm. If the patella is too thin, there are two options: – the surgeon may perform peripheral patellar remodelling, and refrain from inserting a patellar prosthesis; – the more ambitious alternative (to be considered where the inadequate thickness is confined to the lateral one-third of the patella) consists in placing a cancellous graft between the polyethylene prosthesis and the patella, at the cementing stage.

ACL reconstruction The role of an ACL reconstruction in the osteoarthritic knee is controversial. Some authors have suggested that osteoarthritis is a contraindication to ACL reconstruction (4, 32, 47). Concerns include increased pain, joint contact forces and constraint leading to an increase in the progression of osteoarthritis. Others contend that reconstruction is worthwhile to improve stability, function and proprioception and helps reduce pain with the hope of halting arthritic advancement.

In a later study Pinczewski et al. (20) evaluated a group of 90 patients who had normal menisci at the time of surgery five years post surgery. Patient rating was 90% normal or nearly normal, 98% had a Grade 0 pivot shift and 97% had no degenerative changes seen radiographically. Their study support the view that reconstruction of the ACL is a reliable technique allowing full rehabilitation of the previously injured knee. In the presence of normal menisci there is a low incidence of osteoarthritic change despite continued participation in sporting activity.
