ACL reconstruction surgery uses a graft to replace the ligament. The most common grafts are autografts using part of your own body, such as the tendon of the kneecap (patellar tendon) or one of the hamstring tendons. Another choice is allograft tissue, which is taken from a deceased donor.
Repair surgery typically is used only in the case of an avulsion fracture (a separation of the ligament and a piece of the bone from the rest of the bone). In this case, the bone fragment connected to the ACL is reattached to the bone.Ligament surgeon in jaipur
ACL surgery is usually done by making small incisions in the knee and inserting instruments for surgery through these incisions (arthroscopic surgery). In some cases, it is done by cutting a large incision in the knee(open surgery).
Other ligaments that may get injured are the PCL, MCL, LCL either isolated or a combination of these as well as meniscus injuries. Your knee joint has various ligament complexes which may get injured during sports or as a result of high velocity vehicle accidents etc. Timely intervetion and addressal of these injuries is paramount to achieve optimum results. Neglecting these injuries can result in a lifetime of permanent disability.
