Article : Surgical technique for intra- and extra-articular ACL reconstruction using the hamstring tendons By Thomas CUCURULO, Abdou SBIHI, Marie-Laure LOUIS, Jaafar SBIHI, Jean-Pierre FRANCESCHI †
A rotational element in knee instability with tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a long-established fact, and if stand-alone extra-articular lateral tenodesis has proved unreliable for long-term preservation of menisco-cartilaginous tissue at the knee, stand-alone single- or double-bundle ACL reconstruction has also demonstrated its limitations in maintaining rotational control in knee instability.

Article : Travel grant awarded by the Société Francophone d'Arthroscopie (SFA)–Maîtrise Orthopédique / Arthroscopic reattachment of a chronic bony Bankart fragment according to Sugaya By Anselme Billaud
Following my recent appointment to the Bordeaux-Mérignac sports clinic, I welcomed the opportunity offered by Maîtrise Orthopédique and the SFA to visit Dr Hiroyuki Sugaya’s shoulder surgery department at Tokyo-Funabashi hospital. The main objective of my visit was to learn from Dr Sugaya’s experience in shoulder surgery, particularly as regards instability.
