Evaluation of Knee Joint after Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) Surgery of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Avulsion

Author: HAMIDREZA MOHAMMADI, NAVID SALEHI
Abstract: Anterior cruciate ligament is a part of the tissues and structures that sustain the knee joint and its tear or detachment may lead to instability and ultimately damage to the joint. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of treatment of ACL ligation and its comparison with the healthy knee of the opposite side. In this study, 25 patients with avulsion fracture at the ACL joint were treated with open surgery and screw fixation. The patients were followed up by Lysholm knee score for at least 12 months after surgery. All patients were male with an average age of 25 years. The common mechanism of injury in these patients was motorcycle car accident. In the study with Lysholm knee score, 21 patients (80%) obtained the good score of 60-90 while 20% of patients were placed in the fair group (30-59). The average score was 86. The obtained score of knee function questionnaire in this study had no significant difference from other similar studies and most patients achieved a good and acceptable score after the surgery. There was no knee instability and functional impairment in the patients compared to the normal knee. Considering the clinical results after the fixation of the ACL avulsion fracture causing a significant improvement in patients, the surgery could be considered as an acceptable and effective method for treating such impairment and fracture.
