Abstract
After anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with autologous patellar tendon, 23 patients who had clinically stable knees were studied prospectively with sequential magnetic resonance imaging 1, 2, 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery. The images of the anterior cruciate ligament were obtained with a 1.5 tesla magnetic resonance scanner in the oblique sagittal, coronal, and oblique axial planes. The cross-sectional area and signal intensity on the reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament were measured in an oblique axial image. The usefulness of the oblique axial image in evaluating the integrity of the reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament was seen. The result showed that the diameter of the graft increased by 70% of its initial size and the signal intensity of the reconstructed graft also showed a tendency to increase. In three patients, there was discontinuity in the graft direction on the oblique sagittal image, but on the oblique axial image there was no evidence of reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament rupture in the sequential images. This shows the value of the oblique axial image in evaluating the integrity of the reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament. Also, sufficient notchplasty in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction may be needed to prevent graft impingement.
