What is ACL Tear?

A 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 that 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.

ACL Reconstruction Recovery

Most patients can walk the same day after arthroscopic ACL reconstruction.

Surgery healing takes 4 to 8 weeks.

Full recovery usually takes 4 to 9 months

Treatment

Physical examination for ACL-Tear in pune

Diagnosis

During the physical examination, the doctor will check the swelling in the knee. The doctor may also ask you to change positions of the knee to check if the knee is functioning properly. The diagnosis, in most cases, can be done on the basis of the physical test alone, but if the injury looks severe, the doctor may ask you to take a few more tests such as - X-rays and MRI.

Surgery

The surgery to repair a torn ACL is known as ACL Reconstruction. During the process, the surgeon operates and removes the injured ligament and replaces it with a segment of tendon tissue. The tendon tissue works similar to that of a ligament that connects the muscle to bone.

The surgeon will use a piece of tendon from another part of the knee or a tendon from a deceased donor. After the surgery, the patient can resume a rehabilitative therapy course for recovery.

For recovery, you can do the following selfcare at home:

  • Icing
  • Proper rest
  • Use compression
  • Keep your knee in elevated position

Experiencing knee pain and instability after an ACL injury? You should undergo less invasive and successful ACL Reconstruction Surgery In Pune

Tears in the anterior cruciate ligament because of an injury of the knee joint is one of the most common types of injuries of the knee. ACL or the anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major ligaments of the knee joint and is responsible for the stability of the joint. If an injury is sustained, the ligament does not heal by itself. This implies that in case of ACL tear or injury, an orthopedic must be consulted to immediately know about treatment options.

If the injury sustained by the ACL is of Grade 1, it can be treated with non-surgical methods effectively. But if Grade 2 or Grade 3 injuries are sustained, your doctor may suggest ACL Reconstruction Surgery in Pune. With its certified, trained and experienced team of surgeons and a compassionate and caring environment, Pristyn Care is one of the best choices for undergoing ACL Reconstruction Surgery. The surgeons at Pristyn Care use the latest technologies and high-end equipment for your reconstruction surgery, and the follow-up appointments and rehabilitation program will ensure that you are on the right track of recovery.

How is an ACL tear treated?

A severe injury to the knee can result in an ACL tear. You would need a proper diagnosis after scans and physical examination to ensure that your injury is an ACL tear. Once a proper diagnosis is made, a comprehensive treatment plan can be drawn based on the following factors.

  • The severity and extent of the injury
  • Age and skeletal development of the patient.
  • Type of lifestyle and activity routine of the patient.

The grading of ACL injuries is based on the extent of damage to the anterior cruciate ligament. The injuries are divided into three categories as follows.

  • Grade 1: A light stretch in the ligament with mild damage is a Grade 1 injury. No instability of the knee is caused.
  • Grade 2: Grade 2 injuries involve a strong stretch in the ACL which can make it lose. This is known as a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and causes pain, inflammation, and instability.
  • Grade 3: A complete ligament tear occurs due to overstretching of the joint. The ligament splits into two and makes the knee joint highly unstable, inflamed, and immobile.

If the ACL tear is mild and is caused by just a light stretch of the knee, surgical treatments will probably not be required. Nonsurgical treatment alternatives like the following can prove to be effective.

  • Limiting and modifying activities.
  • Using a brace, cast, or splint.
  • Rehabilitation and physiotherapy programs.

However, in case of Grade 2 or Grade 3 injuries, an ACL Reconstruction surgery can be suggested by your orthopedic. The surgery aims to restructure the torn ligament by using a piece of tendon from another part of the knee, or a donor.

Benefits of undergoing arthroscopic ACL tear surgery

The expert team of orthopedic surgeons at Pristyn Care uses advanced techniques and equipment to reconstruct the ACL with a minimally invasive method. There are several benefits of ACL reconstruction surgery as compared to traditional open surgery. Some of them are listed as follows.

  • Quicker recovery
  • Significantly less pain after surgery
  • Lesser and smaller incisions
  • Lower risk of infections

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.
