RADU RADULESCU, ADRIAN BADILA, ROBERT MANOLESCU, IOAN JAPIE, ALEXANDRA BOLOCAN The Use of Bioabsorbable Interference Screws in Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the Knee


Abstract:
Over the last years the use of bioabsorbable materials in orthopaedic surgery has increased exponentially. One of the first surgical interventions to take benefit from these absorbable materials was the reconstructive surgery for the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee, meaning the use of interference screws for the primary fixation of the ligament graft. The aim of this paper is to present the main types of screws of this kind, used in current practice, the preferred manufacturing materials and to evaluate the standard implantation procedures in terms of the stability they ensure to the ligament graft. Keywords: bioabsorbable screws, ACL reconstruction, ligamentoplasty
