ACL repair comparison

Posted by Dr Manu Bora

Dr Manu Bora, an orthopaedic surgeon, has been using new techniques to treat sports related injuries for quite some time now. He is introducing a new technique in India which is used for ACL reconstruction. This new technique is known as all inside ACL construction technique with fibre tape internal bracing. Here we will see how this technique is different from the conventional ACL reconstruction that is done by the screw:

Conventional techniqueAll inside fibre tape internal braces technique
Two hamstring tendons are usedOnly one hamstring tendon is used
Bigger hole is made in the bonePin size hole is made in the bone
Fibre tape cannot be used in the conventional screw fixationFibre tape internal bracing is used
Painful knee bendingPainless knee bending
90% knee bending can be achieved one month after surgery90% bending knee bending can be achieved one day after surgery
Walking is painfulThere is painless walking without support just one week after surgery
The patient is able to perform lunges after one monthThe patient is able to perform lunges after one week
The patient is able to jog after 3 monthsThe patient is able to jog after 1 month
The patient can get back to sports only after 6 or 7 monthsThe patient can get back to sports in less than 3 months

The results with this technique have proven to be a lot faster, painless, and far more effective than the conventional ones. The greatest case study is of an athlete who ran a marathon just 4.5 months after a ACL repair with the all inside fibre tape internal bracing technique.
