AJSM Webinar Series - March 2022: Lateral Extraarticular Tenodesis (LET) in ACL-Reconstruction: From Past to Present
Course Information

AOSSM and ESSKA are proud to present the next installment in the American Journal of Sports Medicine Webinar series: Lateral Extraarticular Tenodesis (LET) in ACL-Reconstruction: From Past to Present”. This live webinar is on March 9, 2022 at 3pm central time and will feature the papers “Revision ACL Reconstruction using BPTB Graft Combined with Modified Lemaire Technique Versus Hamstrings Graft Combined with ALL Reconstruction: A Clinical Comparative Matched Study with a Mean Follow-up of 5 years” and “ACL Reconstruction Combined With the Arnold Coker Modification of the MacIntosh Lateral Extraarticular tenodesis: Long-term Clinical and Radiological Outcomes.” Moderator Eivind Inderhaug and authors Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet and Andrea Ferretti will be joined by a panel consisting of Andy Williams and Alan Getgood for a discussion on the emerging role of LET in ACL surgery.

The aim of the webinar is to shed light on new knowledge about extraarticular lateral tenodesis, the use of which have been increasing in recent years. Questions that will be raised and discussed include: “Why was the use of tenodesis discontinued historically?” and “What has brought them back into current clinical use?” Further the hallmark “STABILITY” study will be presented, and implications of its findings will be discussed. The study “Revision ACL Reconstruction using BPTB Graft Combined with Modified Lemaire Technique Versus Hamstrings Graft Combined with ALL Reconstruction” and the use of LET in primary ACL reconstruction and for revision cases will also be discussed. Finally, surgical approaches and technical aspects in their execution will be debated. The audience will have the chance to ask questions on the use of LET to this world-class panel.
