Analysis of retrieved polymer fiber based replacements for the ACL

BIOMATERIALS, 21(23), 2461–2474.

By: M. Guidoin*, Y. Marois*, J. Bejui, N. Poddevin*, M. King* & R. Guidoin*

author keywords: ACL prostheses; retrieval study; histology; SEM analysis
MeSH headings : Adult; Anterior Cruciate Ligament; Biocompatible Materials; Female; Humans; Male; Microscopy, Electron, Scanning; Polyesters; Retrospective Studies; Transplants
TL;DR: The present study shows that three mechanisms may be involved in the failure of ACL prostheses: inadequate fiber abrasion resistance against osseous surfaces; flexural and rotational fatigue of the fibers, and loss of integrity of the textile structure due to unpredictable tissue infiltration during healing.

TL;DR: This study evaluated the biocompatibility of xenogenic material by implanting in dogs prostheses coated with bovine albumin and cross-linked with glutaraldehyde and found a slower rate of healing with the coated grafts compared to the preclotted controls did appear to be related to the slow rate of albumin erosion and the potentially cytotoxic effect of the glutarhyde cross-linking agent.
