Asif Father’s CABG Surgery Experience - Mr Asif
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the four main ligaments present at the center of the knee joint that connect lower leg bone to the thigh bone. Any tear or injury in this ligament can completely restrict the movement of knee joint. A surgical procedure to repair the injury or reconstruct anterior cruciate ligament is commonly known as ACL Surgery.
During ACL Reconstruction, the ligament is replaced with a graft taken from the patient's own body. Most common grafts are tendon of the knee cap or one of the hamstring tendons. ACL Repair surgery is performed where ACL and a piece of bone is seperated from rest of the knee joint.
ACL reconstruction is indicated in those who play high demand sports or those who are in such jobs that require knee strength. These people should be prepared to follow a long physical therapy schedule post surgery.
It is required when knee stability and normal knee function is affected after an injury.
X RAY, CT scan or MRI may be done to evaluate the injured anterior cruciate ligament and the surrounding structures.
Bracing of the knee and some physical therapy may be required before the surgery for patients with stiff knees lacking full range of motion so as to allow some healing to occur and to improve surgery outcomes.
Blood thinning and immune system suppressing medications if being taken must be stopped and smoking should be also be stopped at least 2 weeks prior to the surgery.
The surgery is performed by an orthopedic surgeon under general/regional anesthesia.
