Correlation of functional status of arthroscopic ACL reconstruction for prevention of titanium interference screw

Paresh Chandra Dey, Saurav Narayan Nanda.

Abstract
Introduction: Due to an increase in traffic accidents and more common people participating in sports-related activities, knee injuries are more frequent today. The knee's anterior cruciate ligament is the ligament that gets injured the most frequently. The principal stabiliser that prevents the anterior translation of the tibia over the femur is the anterior cruciate ligament, which plays a pivotal role in the stability and function of the knee joint. The gold standard for treating these injuries is arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
Methods: This study is a retrospective and prospective analysis of 60 patients who underwent arthroscopic reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament using a quadrupled hamstring graft with an endobutton as the femoral fixation device and a titanium interference screw (no=30) or a bioabsorbable interference screw (no=30) as the tibial fixation device.
Results: This study is a retrospective and prospective analysis of 60 patients who underwent arthroscopic reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament using a quadrupled hamstring graft with an endobutton as the femoral fixation device and a titanium interference screw (no=30) or a bioabsorbable interference screw (no=30) as the tibial fixation device.
Conclusion: Clinical outcomes for interference screws made of titanium and bioabsorbable material are statistically comparable. The two screws' complication rates were comparable as well. This comparison analysis's findings are consistent with the claim that titanium screws and bioabsorbable screws both produce comparable results when used for ACL restoration.

Key words: Anterior cruciate ligament, quadrupled hamstring graft, titanium, bioabsorbable, interference screw, endobutton, arthroscopy
