Tibial plateau fractures are often accompanied with ligamental and meniscal injuries. Among which, the combined existence of Schatzker type IV fracture with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) avulsion has been reported rarely. The purpose of this study was to determine the injury mechanism of Schatzker type IV fracture with ACL avulsion based on Mimics software.
It is hypothesized that anatomic tunnel placement will create tunnels with violation of the posterior cortex and subsequently an oblique aperture that is not circumferentially surrounded by bone. In this article, we aimed to characterize posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tibial tunnel using a three-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) model.
Patient satisfaction is increasingly used as a metric to evaluate the quality of healthcare services and to determine hospital and physician compensation. The aim of this study was to identify preoperative factors associated with Press Ganey Ambulatory Surgery (PGAS) satisfaction scores, and to evaluate the effect of each PGAS domain score on the total PGAS score variability in patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). A review of a Press Ganey (PG) database at a single center was performed for patients undergoing ACLR between 2015 and 2019. Ninety-nine patients completed the PGAS survey and 54 also completed preoperative demographic and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) for an orthopaedic registry. PGAS scores were calculated and bivariate analysis was performed.
