Arthroscopic decompression of central acetabular impingement with notchplasty
In chronic cases, notchplasty
may be applied in order to enlarge the narrowed intercondylar notch [8, 27, 28].
As there were no bony deformities, corrective osteotomy or sigmoid notchplasty
were not performed.
The effect of intercondylar notchplasty on the normal canine stifle.
Radiographic and computed tomographic evaluation of the canine intercondylar fossa in normal stifles and after notchplasty in stable and unstable stifles.
The effects of aggressive notchplasty on the normal knee in dogs.
The femoral and tibial tunnels are then created under arthroscopic guidance and a notchplasty
is performed if necessary.
Surgical treatment included debridement of meniscal lesions, stabilization of chondral defects, removal of impinging osteophytes, and notchplasty
The prevention of this phenomenon as first delineated by Jackson and expanded by others includes attention to tunnel positioning and notchplasty
to avoid impingement, debridement of the tibial tunnel before the graft is advanced, and removal of osteocartilagenous fragments.
Often a notchplasty
of the inferior and posterior aspects of the corresponding condyle must be performed to reach the posterior horn.
A limited notchplasty
should be performed to allow adequate visualization of the posterior border of the intercondylar notch.
