Everything You Need to Know About ACL Surgery: Q&A

Before the Procedure (3 Questions):

ACL surgery is a process that uses a portion of tendon from the patient having surgery or from a deceased person to rebuild a torn ACL. A kneecap or hamstring tendon might be used as replacement tissue.

Active people, particularly athletes whose activity requires pivoting, are suitable candidates for ACL surgery. This operation is excellent for those who have completed a rehabilitation program but still have knee instability. People who have damaged more than one knee ligament may benefit from ACL surgery.

Children and younger teens who are still growing cannot undergo the same sort of ACL surgery as adults or older adolescents, however recent surgical advancements have made ACL reconstruction surgery accessible for juvenile athletes.

During the Procedure (3 Questions):

Most ACL repair patients are given an epidural nerve block during their operation rather than being completely asleep under general anesthesia. This epidural is similar to the localized anaesthetia that many women receive after delivery.

ACL reconstruction can be done using a number of various tissues or grafts. The optimal transplant option for you is a personal decision, although some characteristics make certain graft options superior to others. There are two types of grafts: those produced from your own body (autografts) and those obtained from a corpse (allografts).

ACL reconstruction surgery has three main steps:

  • Arthroscopy
  • Graft harvesting
  • ACL surgery

The orthopedic surgeon creates ports of entry for the arthroscope and surgical equipment by making tiny incisions around the knee joint. The arthroscope is introduced into the knee and a saline solution is delivered to increase the space surrounding the joint. This allows for surgical equipment such as the arthroscopic camera, which feeds video to a display and allows the surgeon to look within the knee joint.The surgeon then examines the components that surround the torn ACL, such as the left and right meniscus and the articular cartilage. If one of these soft tissues has a lesion, the surgeon will fix it.

Following that, the graft will be harvested (unless a donor allograft is used). A segment of tendon from another region of the patient's body is cut to form a graft, which is then joined at either end to bone plugs obtained from the patella and tibia. These plugs aid in the anchoring of the graft that will become the new ACL. Using a flexible guide wire, the surgeon inserts the replacement ACL into the femur and tibia. Screws are used to secure bone plugs and those plugs will eventually fuse with the surrounding bone.

Post the Procedure (6 Questions):

Returning to athletics necessitates ligament healing, muscle strengthening, and the restoration of neuromuscular coordination. The recovery period following ACL restoration is lengthy, arduous, and frequently more difficult than the operation itself. Sports involvement can be resumed roughly 6-9 months following surgery.

Following ACL surgery, the patient will be kept in the recovery room until the anesthesia wears off. A nurse will assist the patient in walking with crutches and will demonstrate how to change the bandage on the wound. The patient will be allowed to leave the hospital the same day. Swelling can be treated with ice packs. Physical treatment will be required to strengthen the muscles that surround the knee.

When the patient is ready to return to work will depend on the type of employment. If the patient has a sedentary job, for example, he or she may be able to return to work within a week of surgery. However, if the patient's employment requires standing all day, putting strain on the repaired knee, returning to work may take up to six weeks.

No, many doctors used to recommend functional braces following ACL surgery. Recent research has shown that wearing a brace does not lessen the rate of ACL re-tear. Wearing one may provide some patients with a sense of security, but it is not required.

ACL repair surgery has a non-surgical alternative. This is referred to as a percutaneous ACL repair. This method includes injecting a concentration of the patient's bone marrow stem cells into the ACL rather than removing the damaged ligament and replacing it with a harvested tendon.

Pain is a highly subjective feeling that varies greatly across individuals. However, because ACL surgery is a semi-elective treatment, we can prepare for pain and use various current modalities to make the surgery a far more tolerable experience.
