What is ACL Tear?

Tear in the anterior cruciate ligament is known as ACL tear. It is one of the major ligaments in the knee. Athletes and women who wear high heels for long hours are likely to suffer from an ACL tear often. ACL tear is commonly witnessed in players related to soccer, football, cricket, basketball etc where sudden jumping, landing and other such body movements are required. The surgery to reconstruct a torn or injured ACL is known as ACL Reconstruction.

The knee joint is a complex structure of ligaments, bones, tissues and tendons which jointly makes the knee function. In case of any injury, it is important for the person to get a quick and accurate diagnosis and treatment to repair the injury.

Diagnosis

The orthopedic doctor will begin the diagnosis with a physical examination to check the swelling in the knee. The ACL tear doctor will also recommend diagnostic tests like X-rays, MRI scans and arthroscopy for a detailed and thorough diagnosis and to rule out any fractures. Additionally, your ACL tear doctor may also perform the Lachman’s test and a pivot to check if the ACL is still intact or to assess ACL tears.  

Surgery

The surgery to repair a torn ACL is known as ACL reconstruction. Pristyn Care’s ACL tear surgeons in Gurgaon perform the surgery with the minimally invasive arthroscopic approach. During the arthroscopic ACL tear surgery , the surgeon will make small incisions around the knee, usually 2 or 3 instead of one large incision used in the open surgery.  

Most ACL tear surgeons in Gurgaon use arthroscopic approach to perform ACL tear surgery rather than open surgery because-

  • It is easy to view and access the knee structures.
  • Uses smaller incisions instead of one long incision.
  • It can be performed at the same time as the diagnostic arthroscopy. 
  • It involves fewer risks and promotes faster recovery.

The primary goal of this surgery is to regain normal movement and functioning of the knee. Sadly, the window of opportunity to restore full movement and mobility closes quickly. The more you delay your surgery, the lesser are the chances to regain full knee functioning. Also, a torn or injured ACL increases the risk of other knee problems and injuries.

Why do surgeons choose arthroscopic surgery rather than open surgery for ACL tears?

Most orthopedic surgeons prefer arthroscopic surgery rather than open surgery for torn or injured ACL because-

  • It is easy to view and access all the knee structures.
  • Reconstructing the ACL is easier with arthroscopic surgery.
  • Uses much smaller incisions than the open surgery.
  • Much quicker recovery.
  • Minimal downtime and postoperative complications.
  • Has fewer risks than open surgery.

Post-surgery, our orthopedic surgeons will draw up a customised and comprehensive rehabilitation program and provide you with a schedule of follow-up appointments so that your recovery can be monitored. 

Myths and Facts around ACL injuries 

MYTH: The knee is cut wide open during an ACL reconstruction surgery.

Truth: Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction surgery is done with minimally invasive technique by inserting an arthroscopy into the knee which allows the surgeon to view and access the knee joint. The surgery requires a very small incision and the knee is not cut wide open in this procedure. 

MYTH: ACL Injuries only occur from a blunt trauma or force.

Truth: ACL injuries most often occur during activities involving poor landing mechanics. This may happen due to an individual’s landing position or while playing sports such as soccer or football.  

MYTH: Physiotherapy after ACL tear surgery takes very long

Truth: Physiotherapy after an ACL tear surgery can take as little as a few weeks following surgery, depending on the condition of the patient and severity of the injury. A patient can potentially see an improved range of motion in the knee with regular physiotherapy. However, aspects such as motor control may take longer time to regain.

MYTH: Only athletes are susceptible to ACL tears

Truth: Knee injuries including ACL tear, PCL tear and a torn meniscus are most common knee injuries that occur during sports but any individual can have an ACL tear. ACL tears can also occur during non-sports related activities.
