What Is An ACL Reconstruction?

ACL reconstruction is a surgical procedure that repairs a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), one of the four ligaments that help stabilize the knee. The ligament is reconstructed using a tendon that is passed through the inside of the knee joint and secured to the upper leg bone (femur) and one of the two lower leg bones (tibia).

The tendon used for reconstruction is a graft and can come from different sources. It is usually taken from the patient’s own patella, hamstring, or quadriceps, or quadriceps, or it can come from a cadaver. ACL reconstruction is most often performed through arthroscopic surgery.

What Are The Risks Of Total Hip Replacement?

Total hip replacement is a major operation. The effect of most complications is simply that the patient stays in the hospital longer. The most common complications are not directly related to the hip and do not usually affect the result of the operation. These include

  • Blood clots in the leg
  • Blood clots in the lung
  • Urinary infections or difficulty in urinating
  • Complications that affect the hip are very un common, but in these cases, the operation may not be as successful
    • Difference in leg length
    • Stiffness
    • Dislocation of hip (ball pops out of socket)
    • Infection in hip

A few of the complications, such as infection or dislocation, may require re-operation.

What Is An Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy involves inserting a tube into the knee through a small incision in the skin. The tube is equipped with a miniature camera and allows the surgeon to have a 'look around' and evaluate the state of the knee structures. Often, it will be immediately clear on the surgeon's screen what needs to be done. At that point a second incision may be made to allow for the insertion of a surgical tool to correct the problem.

What Can Be Expected Of a Total Hip Replacement?

A total hip replacement will provide complete or nearly complete pain relief in 90 to 95 percent of patients. It will allow patients to carry out many normal activities of daily living. The artificial hip may allow you to return to active sports or heavy labor under your physician’s instructions. Most patients with stiff hips before surgery will regain near-normal motion, and nearly all have improved motion.
