The position of the Tecchnique is confirmed with fluoroscopy after manual assessment to ensure that the button has been flipped. Fortunately, the patient had no ACL instability. Injury to arteries, such as the lateral superior genicular artery, is possible.

However, arthroscopic ACL reconstruction is more technically complex, and inexperienced surgeons may have difficulty identifying the interposed soft tissue and EndoButton.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc. Our arthroscopic reduction technique allows the surgeon to assess for malpositioning and migration of the EndoButton directly through the LF portal and remove any soft tissue interposed between the EndoButton and the lateral cortex of the femur. D Removed soft tissue beneath migrated EndoButton arrow. Pediatric anterior cruciate ligament femoral fixation: Surgical Technique The described ACL reconstruction technique was arthroscopically performed by the endobuthon surgeon.

Suture button—based femoral cortical suspension constructs of anterior cruciate ligament grafts can facilitate a fast and secure fixation. After passage of the anterior cruciate ligament ACL graft through the tibial tunnel, the position of the EndoButton is confirmed by fluoroscopy after the EndoButton is felt to be flipped in a right knee.

Another potential complication is lateral extravasation because this technique is performed in the extra-articular space. Some surgeons have recommended the use of intraoperative fluoroscopy to assess the position of the button and its relation to the femoral cortex. The arrow shows the EndoButtons of the anteromedial and posterolateral graft.

B The durgical is inserted through an LF portal, and a Vulcan probe arrowhead is inserted through another LF portal. Endonutton pitfall of the EndoButton. However, this technique requires a longer intraoperative tehcnique and a relatively higher level of surgical skills that may limit its use to more experienced surgeons.

Endobutton button endoscopic fixation technique in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

Iliotibial band irritation caused by the EndoButton after anatomic double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: Reduce the migrated EndoButton to the proper position, and fit the EndoButton to the lateral cortex of the knee by pulling the graft on the tibial side. A standardized postoperative protocol is implemented for each patient.

A Anteroposterior radiograph of a right Rt knee during operation showing migrated EndoButtons of anteromedial and posterolateral graft arrow. Other injuries, including osteochondral lesions and meniscal tears, are managed concomitantly depending on their severity.

A fixed-loop cortical suspension device, the EndoButton CL, is used for femoral fixation. Second-generation, no-incision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. This technique requires careful cleaning of the soft tissue over the lateral cortex of the femur.

Abstract Suture button—based femoral cortical suspension constructs of anterior cruciate tecnhique grafts can facilitate a fast and secure fixation. In eurgical, there is a small possibility of injury to the lateral superior genicular artery. The techniques allows direct visualization of the techniaue of the migrated EndoButton. There is also a risk of damage to the EndoButton loop by using the Vulcan.

Endobutton button endoscopic fixation technique in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

Comparison of fixation on the lateral cortex versus the anterior cortex. A standard arthroscopic examination is performed through anteromedial and anterolateral portals.

The effect of cortical button location on its post-operative migration in anatomical double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The arrowhead indicates the Vulcan probe. This minimally invasive approach assists in the correction of the migrated EndoButton to the femoral cortex to the proper position. This more accurate technique not only techniquf for better visualization but also leads to a decrease in the rate of techniqhe of the ACL reconstruction.

A Vulcan probe can also be inserted through the same portal to help manipulate and fit the EndoButton into the proper position at the lateral cortex of the femur by pulling the graft on the tibial side Fig 2 D and E.

Physical therapy, consisting of exercise without resistance, to improve range syrgical motion is initiated immediately after surgery.

Do adjustable loops lengthen? Postoperative clinical examination before revision showed range of motion without increased resistance. Journal List Arthrosc Tech v.

Am J Sports Med. Switch the shaver to a Vulcan probe to remove any interposed soft tissue beneath the EndoButton. Seating of TightRope RT button under direct arthroscopic visualization in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction to prevent potential complications.

The proposed procedure is routinely used in our practice and continues to show promise. The trans-iliotibial band endoscopic portal for direct visualization of ideal button placement. In the case in which the EndoButton migrates from the lateral aspect of surgifal femoral cortex Fig 1 Aa lateral femoral LF portal is created through the femoral guide pin incision on the lateral aspect of the femur.

A probe can be inserted through the same portal to help manipulate the EndoButton into the proper position at the lateral cortex of the femur by pulling the graft on the tibial side.
