Weight-bearing and knee orthoses protocols following cell-based surgeries and structural transplants for tibiofemoral cartilage defects: an expert recommendation

Gavrailoff et al | American Journal of Orthopedics (2018) - approved with minor revisions, not yet published

Using a mixed-methods approach, North American Orthopaedic Surgeons developed expert recommendations and two post-operative protocols. Cartilage Unloader braces were recommended during an individual’s transition from partial to full weight-bearing after both cell-based procedures and structural transplant.

Continuous Passive Motion, Early Weight Bearing, and Active Motion following Knee Articular Cartilage Repair: Evidence for Clinical Practice.

Howard, J.S., Mattacola, C.G., Romine, S.E. & Lattermann, C. Cartilage (2012)

In multiple animal studies early weight-bearing led to greater cartilage formation. If it can be done safely, early full or partial weight bearing and ambulating with limited crutch dependence may greatly improve patient quality of life by allowing patients to re-establishing gait patterns and return to work and other activities sooner.

The effect of rehabilitation including the use of functional braces on knee function after arthroscopic treatment- Examination of patients with cartilage lesions of the knee.

Goto, M., Suzuki, K., & Shimada, T. | Journal of Physical Therapy Science (2008)

Bracing allows protected mechanical stress on the joint, increases awareness of vulnerability of the knee, and could provide a conducive physiological environment to cartilage healing.

How accurate is partial weightbearing?

Dabke, H.V., Gupta, S.K., Holt, C.A., O’Callaghan, P., Dent, C.M. | Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research (2004)

Neither healthy nor patient participants could accurately replicate prescribed partial weight-bearing, and 91% of patients overloaded their knee.

Rehab protocol after microfracture for lesions of the medial or lateral femoral condyle <2cm2

Panel of American Orthopaedic Surgeons

The Rebound Cartilage brace is suggested by experts to be used in rehabilitation after microfracture, during partial weight-bearing through to full weight-bearing, exercise and training. Articular cartilage needs up to 24 months to regenerate post repair procedures.

Comparison of compartmental force in the knee on a braced and unbraced surrogate leg model

Biomechanical data showed a 50% reduction in medial compartmental force (N) using the Rebound Cartilage brace during simulated walking conditions. Medial compartmental force was reduced through 0°-45° of knee flexion compared to no brace.

Multiligament Knee Injuries in Older Adolescents: A 2-Year Minimum Follow-up Study

Godin, J.A., Cinque, M.E., Pogorzelski, J., Moatshe, G., Chahla, J., LaPrade, R.F.|Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine (OJSM), Sept 2017

Patient outcomes and failure rates following unstaged multiligament reconstruction in adolescents with minimum 2-year follow-up were assessed. As part of the protocol, the dynamic force Rebound PCL supported excellent patient satisfaction and good clinical and functional outcomes following complex knee reconstruction including the PCL.

Paraskiing crash and knee dislocation with multiligament reconstruction and iliotibial band repair

Dean, C.S., Fernandes, O., Cinque, M.E., Chahla, J., LaPrade, R.F.|American Journal of Orthopedics (AJO), 2017

Post-surgery, a 6-week non-weight-bearing, limited flexion rehab protocol utilizing a dynamic PCL brace, such as the PCL Rebound brace, is recommended to prevent posterior tibial sag.

Surgical reconstruction is a cost efficient treatment option for isolated PCL injuries

Owesen, C., Aas. E., Aroen, A.|Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy (2017)

Non-surgical and surgical treatment models of isolated PCL injuries which included the Rebound PCL brace were found to be cost-effective.

Diagnosis and treatment of multiligament knee injury: state of the art

Moatshe, G., Chahla, J., LaPrade, R.F., Engebretsen, L. | Joint Disorders & Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (2017)

Rebound PCL was recommended to be used 9-12 months to protect ligament reconstruction and as state of the art in the rehabilitation of multi-ligament injuries of the knee. As full range of motion is especially vital to long-term outcomes, the dynamic Rebound PCL supports obtaining 0–90° of knee flexion within the first 2 weeks after surgery.

The effect of a dynamic PCL brace on patellofemoral compartment pressures in PCL-and PCL/PLC-deficient knees

Welch, T., Keller, T., Ruben, M., Maldonado, R., Metzger, M., Mohr, K., Kvitne, R.|Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics, Dec 2017

Application of the dynamic Rebound PCL brace led to a significant reduction in force, total pressure, and peak pressures in the patella-femoral joint in PCL and PCL/PLC deficient knees, most significantly at higher degrees of flexion. Results suggest that dynamic bracing may be a better option than static braces for management of chronic PCL injuries or to protect healing ligaments following surgical reconstruction of the PCL

Recommended use of Rebound PCL in the rehabilitation of isolated and combined PCL injuries

After the 2017 Össur medical congress in Reykjavik, Iceland, global experts met to develop a consensus statement on both surgical and conservative treatment of the PCL. Rebound PCL was recommended by global experts for rehabilitation of isolated and combined PCL injuries.

Quantification of functional brace forces for posterior cruciate ligament injuries on the knee joint: an in vivo investigation

LaPrade, R.F., Smith, S.D., Wilson, K. J., Wijdicks, C.A | Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy (2014)

Rebound PCL applied significantly larger, dynamic forces compared to the static force brace at higher flexion angles which are correlated to larger in situ forces on the posterior-cruciate ligament. Clinical studies are necessary to determine whether the loading characteristics of the Rebound PCL brace, which more closely replicated the in situ loading profile of the native PCL, results in long-term improved posterior knee laxity following PCL injury.

A historical perspective of PCL bracing

Jansson, K.S., Costello, K.E., O’Brien, L., Wijdicks, C.A., LaPrade, R.F.|Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy (2012)

A properly designed PCL brace should apply a force that varies with knee flexion angle to mimic the anatomic forces applied by the PCL in the healthy, intact knee.

Jacobi M., Reischl N., Wahl P., Gautier E., Jakob R.P. | The Bone & Joint Journal, Sept 2010

Although the Jack PCL brace reportedly contributed to satisfactory clinical outcomes, posterior sag of the tibia was not restored to intact levels following non-operative treatment.
