INTRODUCTION

Are you suffering from severe pain in the back portion of the knee? It can be a sign of damage in one of the strongest knee ligaments known as PCL or Posterior Cruciate Ligament.

PCL may either be the side-effect of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament damage or due to any other factors like severe injuries, excessive pressure in the knee, complications during the knee replacement or wear and tear of the ligaments.

Most of the time, this knee disorder is ignored and left undiagnosed. However, if you are bearing any of the signs of PCL, you must immediately consult an orthopaedic medical professional, else it might lead to a worsening of your knee damage.

Once you visit the doctor, he tries to fix the issue with medicines and specific physiotherapist. In case the situation cannot be improved with nonsurgical methods, the doctor suggests you for PCL Reconstruction.

There are significant changes in the cost of treatment, depending upon the complexity of the situation.

TREATMENT SPECIFICATIONS

What is a PCL Reconstruction Surgery?

Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction is the healing process to restore the PCL structure and restore the proper functioning of the knee.

 

PCL and ACL are the pair of thick and robust ligaments located at the centre of the knee joint. Both the ligaments form a cross structure; the damage in any of the ligaments can cause instability in the knee. However, the PCL is stronger than the ACL and also responsible for maintaining the balance of the body.

The treatment or proceedings of PCL reconstruction highly depends on the degree of damage.

  • Grade 1 PCL Sprain:

It is a condition when there is partial damage or wears and tear of PCL.

 

  • Grade 2 PCL Tear:

The medical condition when the PCL is entirely worn out.

 

  • Grade 3 PCL Tear:

Along with the ligament tear, the damage ultimately makes the ligament.

 

Who is a Patient for Posterior Cruciate Ligament?

 

Any of the patients who suffer issues in the functioning of the PCL needs posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The signs and symptoms of PCL disorder are:

  • The problem in moving the shin or thigh in the backward direction
  • Bending troubles in the knee. The patient can feel hypertension or pressure
  • Inability to stabilise the body during the rotational movement
  • The patient may feel extreme pain during the transition in body postures.

 

The Procedure for ACL Reconstruction Treatment:

The orthopaedic surgeons require an in-depth analysis of the chronic knee condition before deciding on a treatment procedure. So the first thing is to perform functional tests on the knee.

 

  • Tests and Diagnosis:

For the study of the damage in the knee, the doctors require an image screening, which is possible using Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI. It provides all the necessary images of the internal joints and ligaments of the knee joint.

The doctors analyse the reports thoroughly and then decides on a surgical procedure to provide proper treatment to the patient.

 

  • Treatment Process:

It is difficult to fix the ligament breakdown using the medicines or any specialised therapies. So, to repair a torn tissue, surgeons make use of an alternative ligament to replace it entirely.

The process of replacing the diseased ligaments is known as grafting. Grafting can be done in three different ways:

    • Autografting: In this process, the surgeons make use of the tissues of the patient itself.
    • Allografting: Here, the doctors retrieve the healthy tissues from a donor.
    • Artificial Tissues: This method of PCL reconstruction makes use of tissues made up of any flexible or synthetic elastic material. However, orthopaedic surgeons prefer autografting or allografting over artificial transplants.

Once the doctor finalises on the type of grafting, he starts with the surgical proceedings. The first preference of the surgeons is to use autografts to accomplish the treatment.

Autografting is safe and results in the improved success of PCL reconstruction. This method involves the least risks and highly affordable too. Other two ways can be a bit expensive compared to autografting repair.

The surgery is done under the effect of anaesthesia. The orthopaedic surgeon marks the area of operation and begins by making incisions. He may opt for making two or three small incisions, as per the size of ligament damage.

He then places the arthroscope on one of the incisions and replaces the ligaments from the other. In case there is any bone above the damaged tissue, he first removes it and then places it back after the completion of the grafting process.

The last step is to close the incision and provide the necessary bandages.

 

  • After the Surgery:

As the patient regains consciousness, the surgeons shift him to the rehabilitation centre.

In the initial few days, the medical team will rub the ice on the point of surgery; it will reduce the risk of inflammation.

You will have to remain in the hospital for a minimum duration of 48 to 72 hours. Here the medical team will provide you with necessary instructions to recover quickly.

 

Apart from the medications, physiotherapy will help you to recover faster and better. The approximate recovery time after the PCL reconstruction is 12-14 days.

 

You may experience inflammation or bruise at the site of grafting. However, these symptoms will subside within the recovery time.

But, you will have to take the recommended medicines on time and do not miss the periodic appointment with the surgeon for follow-up.

 

Approach the doctor immediately, if you face any pain or pressure in ligaments during or after the recovery period.

 

Complications After the PCL Reconstruction Surgery:

PCL Reconstruction is safe and thriving in the maximum number of cases. But, you may face specific difficulties in a few instances. It includes:

  • Swelling in the calf
  • Failure of the grafting
  • Stiffness and tenderness in the knee
  • Chronic pain at the front and in the back of the knee
  • Swelling or inflammation
  • Damage to the healthy nerves, arteries and veins
  • Fever

It is possible to avoid the complications by following a healthy lifestyle after the surgery and taking all the prescribed medicines.

In case you come across any significant signs and symptoms of complications, consider visiting the hospital at the earliest.
