Arlon H. Jahnke, Jr., MD
Material Covered: Failure of ACL reconstruction is most often a result of improper surgical technique or recurring injury. This segment, submitted by Arlon H. Jahnke, M.D., with Mark T. Dean, M.D., Bruce Piatt, M.D. and J. Richard Steadman, M.D., describes the causes of these failures and indications for this technically demanding procedure. The importance of preoperative evaluation and planning is discussed, including patient history and expectations, and graft selection. Technical considerations are examined, from hardware and prosthetic removal to revision femoral and tibial tunnel placement. Case reports emphasize surgical technique in ACL revision. Rehabilitation issues are also discussed, including patient goals, extent of revision procedure, regimen and equipment.
