BASK 2016 Poster Submission – ACL Repair – rationale, technique & early results

This study is a re-exploration of an old concept, but with the benefit of new materials and understanding. As you can see, we are in the process of writing that up and publishing it. I am so far astounded and delighted at how well the patients have done and how quickly they’ve recovered. If this […]

It was a great privilege to talk at the ISAKOS meeting in June 2015, where I was asked to discuss my new developments in ACL and PCL reconstruction – to talk on the all-inside technique, to touch a little on the anterolateral ligament, and also present my early results of ACL repair in both adults […]

The history of knee osteotomy

When you understand the history, the present becomes clearer. THE HISTORICAL ERA (pre 1940) Hippocrates  (c. 460 – c. 370 BC) published images of a device he used to straighten legs, so we can consider that clinical osteotomy goes back in time all the way back at least to his era.Closer to our own time […]

ArthroParis 2014

Professor Adrian Wilson presents at this meeting, which was attended by approximately 2000 surgeons – all ‘high-volume’ soft tissue knee and shoulder specialists. The format for the presentations and teaching is very innovative, because the surgeon initially presents his work and then immediately behind the stage a cadaveric facility awaits him. The surgeon turns up 24 […]

The Delta Technique for Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction

The Delta technique refers to the method of reconstruction of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) with a proximal fixation point and two ‘tails’. This method is what we are moving to as a group. But we need to fine-tune our landmarks as you see at the beginning of this video. At the very interesting November 2015 meeting – […]

‘Complete Tibial Tunnel’ ALL Technique

The ‘Delta Technique is what we are calling Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet’s method of tensioning the anterolateral ligament appropriately in flexion and extension. I personally think making a Delta is a challenge with the current fixation as it is going to be difficult for surgeons to tension twice on the tibia. It is very easy to plug something […]
