Aim: To measure the tibial and femoral footprint of ACL in Indian patients (with and
without ACL injury) using MRI of normal patients, during (ACLR) and during TKR.
Materials and Methods: The present prospective study was conducted at PD HINDUJA
hospital and medical research center, Mumbai from March 2015 to November 2015
among 100 patients of Indian origin undergoing arthroscopy, TKR and MRI in our
hospital. We have taken three separate patients group undergoing different procedure
related to knee i.e. Group 1 (Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction), Group 2 (Total knee
replacement) and Group 3 (Diagnostic MRI). As MRI are done in extension of knee,
femoral footprint was in vertically oval plane, so calculating length of maximum
Supero-inferior measurement on MRI sequence of femoral footprint was giving us
length of femoral footprint. All above-mentioned readings were added in tabular form
in excel sheet master chart and was statistically analyzed using SPSS software version
24.

The results of locked intramedullary osteosynthesis in 48 patients with pseudarthrosis and nonunion of the tibia, from 6 months to 4 years, have been observed. In 27 cases the patients had been previously operated by means of external fixation with Ilizarov apparatus, and with plates. We achieved union in 44 patients (91,6%) at 10 - 1,3 months, including 4 from 6 patients with bone defects and osteomyelitis of the tibia with remission. The results of treatment allow the application of locked intramedullary osteosynthesis in complicated pseudarthrosis.
