Proximal Patellar Tendon Repair: Internal Brace Technique With Unicortical Buttons and Suture Tape (2017)

Abstract: Patellar tendon ruptures may be considerably limiting, especially in younger and highly active patients. These injuries ultimately result in a complete inability to maintain extension of the knee, thereby placing strict impediment on physical activity. As a result, a durable repair construct via surgery is necessary to allow patients to return to their preinjury…

Anterolateral Ligament Repair With Suture Tape Augmentation (2018)

Abstract; Recent insights into the structure and function of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee has resulted in a recognition of its contribution in rotational control of the knee. Several ALL reconstruction techniques have been described in the literature. This article describes, with video illustration, a percutaneous repair technique using suture tape augmentation. A…

Percutaneous Medial Collateral Ligament Repair and Posteromedial Corner Repair With Suture Tape Augmentation (2020)

Abstract: The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is among the most commonly injured structures of the knee. Most cases are managed nonoperatively; however, grade III injuries and injuries associated with multiligament injuries to the knee are often managed surgically. MCL reconstruction procedures are the most widely used surgical option, but modern advancements have seen a renewed…

A Novel Medial Collateral Ligament Reconstruction Technique Using Internally Braced Semitendinosus Autograft (2018)

Abstract: Medial collateral ligament reconstruction is often performed in knees with multiligamentous injury, and numerous techniques have been previously described. A novel method of internally bracing and reconstructing the medial collateral ligament with a semitendinosus autograft is described. This provides several advantages, including reproducible isometric graft placement, optimized fixation strength, and internal bracing….. Read Paper
