Surgical treatment of knee joint ligaments

B György, H Zoltán


Because injuries of the ligaments of the knee joint, during 11 years 58 operations have been performed by the authors. In order to evaluate the late results, all patients have been reexamined 1 to 10 years after the operation. In more than the half of the cases at the least 2 ligament injuries have been operated on. 31 patients underwent the operation within two weeks after the injury, and the other patients later on. The authors' material and results are compared also with the data of the literature. In the authors' opinion the result of the surgical treatment is not decisively depending on the chosen operative method. The early and exact diagnosis--forming the basis of the suitable treatment--are of far greater importance. The perfect operative technique and the consequent rehabilitation are indispensable requirements of all surgical interventions. After severe ligament injury of the knee joint the surgical intervention allowed to 2/3 or 3/4 of the injured patients to return to work with stabilized knee. In younger patients also sporting may be possible. Therefore the surgical treatment of the knees, which became unstable because of ligament injury, is absolutely indicated in patients in working age.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
