Comparing Responsiveness Of Six Common Patient-Reported Outcomes To Changes FollowingAutologous Chondrocyte Implantation: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis Of Prospective Studies 2013 71 Objective: To compare the responsiveness of six common patient-reported outcomes (PROs) following autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). Design: A systematic search was conducted to identify reports of PROs following ACI. Study quality was evalua...
Comparison Of Graft Failure Rate Between Autografts Placed Via An Anatomic Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Technique 2015 111 Purpose: To review the literature comparing graft failure rate between patellar and hamstring tendon autografts placed anatomically and to determine if there are differences in return to preinjury activity levels between autografts. Study Design: Sys...
Comparison Of Muscle Activation Levels Between Healthy Individuals And Persons Who Have Undergone Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction During Different Phases Of Weight-Bearing Exercises 2016 199 STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional, controlled laboratory study. BACKGROUND: Quantification of muscular activation during different phases of functional activities is important to understand activation deficits in individuals who have undergone anterior c...
Continuous Passive Motion, Early Weight Bearing, And Active Motion Following Knee Articular Cartilage Repair: Evidence For Clinical Practice 2010 45 Objective: To systematically review the literature regarding postoperative rehabilitation for articular cartilage repair: (1) Does the use of continuous passive motion (CPM) enhance healing, and if so, what parameters should be applied? (2) Can activ...
Decision To Return To Sport After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction, Part I: A Qualitative Investigation Of Psychosocial Factors 2018 207 Context: Return-to-sport criteria after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury are often based on “satisfactory” functional and patient-reported outcomes. However, an individual's decision to return to sport is likely multifactorial; psychological a...
Decision To Return To Sport Participation After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction, Part II: Self-Reported And Functional Performance Outcomes 2018 267 Context: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) is the most commonly used method for helping athletes regain function and return to preinjury activity levels after ACL injury. Outcomes after ACLR have suggested that athletes return to...
Feasibility Of Conducting A Web-Based Survey Of Patient-Reported Outcomes And Rehabilitation Progress 2016 183 Web-based surveys provide an efficient means to track clinical outcomes over time without the use of clinician time for additional paperwork. Our purpose was to determine the feasibility of utilizing web-based surveys to capture rehabilitation compli...
Influence Of Response Shift On Early Patient-Reported Outcomes Following Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation 2014 139 Response shift is the phenomenon by which an individual’s standards for evaluation change over time. The purpose of this study was to determine whether patients undergoing autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) experience response shift. Forty-eig...
Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction With Concomitant Tibial Tubercle Transfer: A Systematic Review Of Outcomes And Complications 2016 116 Purpose: To examine the outcomes and complications of medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction and concomitant tibial tubercle (TT) transfer. Methods: A systematic review of published literature on MPFL reconstruction and TT transfer was ...
Patient-Oriented And Performance-Based Outcomes After Knee Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation: A Timeline For The First Year Of Recovery 2014 153 Context: It is well established that autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) can require extended recovery postoperatively; however, little information exists to provide clinicians and patients with a timeline for anticipated function during the fi...
Rates And Determinants Of Return To Play After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction In National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Soccer Athletes 2015 276 Purpose: To evaluate return to play among collegiate female soccer players, specifically examining the effect of surgical and individual athlete characteristics on the return-to-play rate. Sports medicine and athletic training staff at institutions f...
Response Shift Theory: An Application For Health-Related Quality Of Life In Rehabilitation Research And Practice 2011 62 Evaluating change in patients over time can be challenging to any health care provider. Response shift theory is based on the change typology of alpha, beta, and gamma change and proposes that residual changes in self-response measures occur over tim...
The Role Of Rehabilitation Following Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation: A Retrospective Chart Review 2013 57 Clinical outcomes following autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) are influenced by multiple factors, including patient demographics, lesion characteristics, quality of the surgical repair, and post-operative rehabilitation. However, it is curren...
Serum Cartilage Oligomeric Matrix Protein (Scomp) Is Elevated In Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis 2011 68 Objective: To be used in diagnostic studies, it must be demonstrated that biomarkers can differentiate between diseased and non-diseased patients. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to answer the following questions: (1) Is serum cartilage olig...
Structure, Sex, And Strength And Knee And Hip Kinematics During Landing 2011 147 Researchers have observed that medial knee collapse is a mechanism of knee injury. Lower extremity alignment, sex, and strength have been cited as contributing to landing mechanics. To determine the relationship among measurements of asymmetry of uni...
A Systematic Review Of Complications And Failures Associated With Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction For Recurrent Patellar Dislocation 2012 113 Patellofemoral instability affects activities of daily living and hinders athletic participation.
