Abstract

Purpose

To investigate the risk factors for residual pivot shift test after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction based on a multicenter prospective cohort study.

Methods

This study included patients who were registered in the Multicenter Arthroscopic Knee Surgery Study, a prospective longitudinal multicenter cohort study, and who underwent primary ACL reconstruction using autologous hamstring tendon graft between 2013 and 2016. The exclusion criteria included prior injuries or surgeries in the contralateral knee, prior ligamentous injuries in the involved knee, grade 2 or 3 concomitant ligament injuries, and inflammatory or other forms of osteoarthritis. Data from the preoperative period and at 1-year follow-up were used for further analysis, and patients with incomplete data, re-injury and loss to follow-up were also excluded. Logistic regression analysis was conducted with age, gender, Lachman test, pivot shift test, KT measurement, hyperextension, single-bundle vs. double-bundle, meniscus injury sites, and meniscus treatments as the independent variables, and postoperative pivot shift test was used as the dependent variable.

Results

Three hundred and sixty-eight patients were included in the study. Hyperextension knee (P = 0.025) and a preoperative pivot shift test under anesthesia (P = 0.040) were identified as risk factors for a postoperative pivot shift via logistic regression analysis. There were no statistically significant differences in the other variables.

Conclusions

The results from a multicenter cohort study indicated that knee hyperextension and greater preoperative pivot shift under anesthesia were risk factors for residual pivot shift at 1 year after ACL reconstruction. In cases with a preoperative high-grade pivot shift and knee hyperextension, additional anterolateral structure augmentation might be considered in order to eliminate pivot shift and eventually obtain better outcomes after ACL reconstruction.

Level of evidence

II.
