Ligament Allografts
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:15:34 AM »
Not sure if this is the best place to post or not.

Has anyone had any experience with Allografts for ligament reconstructions ?

I could potentially be looking at a lateral patellofemoral ligament reconstruction in addition to a PFJR.

Hi
In our PM correspondence, I promised to look up some references - I will start with the medial patellofemoral ligament and then look for lateral - I am not sure how useful they will be, but here we go -

1. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25481698
2. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24790782 (full text here - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4004126/) and an excerpt from the Discussion -
"This case report describes the outcomes of a structured rehabilitation program for a young adult male after right knee arthroscopy and open MPFL reconstruction using a tibialis anterior allograft. The unique nature of this case is the combined arthroscopic procedure with the open MPFL reconstruction with a tibialis anterior allograft, which has only recently been reported in a non‐English publication.55 Traditionally, the hamstring and gracillis autograft and allograft have been the tissues of choice by surgeons.55‐57 The tibialis anterior allograft has been successful for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and has shown similar biomechanical qualities to the hamstring and gracillis allografts.58,59")
3. This is lateral, but not allograft - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25264506 (full article here - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4175168/)

I will go and see what else I can find. I do hope others pile into this thread for you.

4. This is autograft, but may still be useful to you since the graft is a free graft - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24992066
