Can You Get A Pcl Transplant If You Rupture Yours
In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more
Acl ruptured & attached to the pcl. I play lots of football. Should i definitely push for ACL reconstruction? Surgeon said i may be ok without?
Opt for ACL: Yes, technically you may be to function without an acl, but you're 26 years old and if it were me, i'd opt to have mine reconstructed, especially if you want to play recreational sports. You're putting a lot of shear stress on your meniscus in an acl deficient knee. We can't recreate normal biomechanics ever, but i think acl competency will give you more longevity on that native knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I have a ruptured acl, torn meniscus and PCL damage too. I spent 5 weeks in a cast, now 2nd week into physio. Will i require surgery? I'm 23 thanks
ACL Reconstruction: Acl tears do not heal on their own & having it replaced can help you maintain a healthy/ active lifestyle in the years to come. The acl is a major knee stabalizer, and can provide security to your knee that may prevent further damage to nearby tendons, ligaments, muscles, articular cartilage, meniscus, & bones when compared to a "loose knee". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I ruptured and damaged my MCL beyond repair, dislodged all cartilage in my knee, ruptured my ACL, damaged my PCL and unattached and damaged my patella tendon. I got badly tripped and would like to know what I would feel if I had re-damaged the patella ten
Depends: Injury and pain is felt differently by different people. If you have not had the previous injuries repaired,it may be difficult to feel any significant difference. The function of your knee(being able to straighten it and hold it off the ground while sitting) may be affected with a patellar tendon injury -but may not be. An MRI is sometimes the only way to see the injury. See your doctor. ...Read more
Would dialysis using a permanent catheter in the only patent left phimoral vein rule out transplantation on it ? Had aneurysmal rupture on the right.
Very tricky: Transplantation requires an adequate vein near an adequate artery and the bladder. Even if a femoral vein has been damaged, the vein higher up in the abdomen (the iliac or the vena cava) may still support a transplant. These technical details need to be carefully reviewed with a transplant surgeon in advance of transplantation. Most of the time, it is still possible. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
More often than not: Acl surgery is an effective and safe treatment for ACL injury. Often those results are transferred to PCL surgery. Not so. Pcl surgery is difficult, not reproducible, and often unsuccessful.

Not if knee stable: Returning to full duty in the army is definitely expected after successful PCL reconstruction surgery. You will be on a T3 (liothyronine) profile for upwards of 3-6 months, and gradually allowed to return to all training activities and be worldwide deployable by 9-12 months. I performed over 100 PCL reconstructions before retiring from the army and the majority of the soldiers avoided a medical discharge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The whole organ pancreas transplant is therefore currently the best option. ...Read more

Unreliable patients: For every kidney txp performed, either a live donor's life was put on the line (for the operation), or another pt on the waiting list will die because the organ was given to this pt. So, it is only fair to perform txps for pts who are expected to survive at least several yrs and will actively care for themselves. Too sick, or out of condition, or uncaring, or unreliable pts must be told no. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
