Tigers fans...word on Guillen

Postby Steve Eckstut » Mon May 02, 2005 2:28 pm

May 2 The Detroit Free Press' Gene Guidi reports Detroit Tigers SS Carlos Guillen (hamstring) isn't sure he will be ready to play Monday, May 2 when the Tigers take on the Boston Red Sox. "We're going to have to keep an eye on him for a while until we're sure he's all the way back," Tigers MAN Alan Trammell said. "To be honest, I think you've got to give him credit for being this far along."


That's from KFFL via Yahoo. First Castillo, now this. I'm behind in GP at these positions already :~(

Does this mean the myth is true? There are no Tigers fans?

Did Guillen tear is ACL last year? Cuz when they perform surgery on the ACL they will usually remove a part of the hamstring to insert as a replacement ligament. The player than also has to rehab their hamstring as a result. Could be something worth keeping an eye on.....

(providing he did have ACL surgery and Im not dreaming it up) :*)

Yeah he did at the very end of last season (September IIRC). He's in the lineup tonight though ;-D

They don't remove part of the hamstring. They remove part of the patella tendon.

I hope you're trying to be funny.

I've had three knee surgeries on my right knee inluding ACL reconstruction and they do not touch your hamstring.

They didnt touch your hamstring.

I did a google search for you:

Repairing the ACL Tear
Surgery to repair a torn ACL is performed as an out-patient procedure. The athlete will report to the facility in the morning and be home before the end of the business day. The treating physician will use an arthroscope to assist in repairing the torn ligament.

The surgeon begins by viewing the torn ligament as a final diagnostic evaluation. Also, the surgeon will inspect the knee for other possible damage. The remains of the ligament are then removed with an arthroscopic shaver. Other damage will be addressed as the procedure continues.

The replacement tissue for the torn ligament can be harvested from the hamstring muscle tendons on the medial (inside) of the knee or from the patellar tendon at the front of the knee. Once the tendon is harvested, it is prepared for the replacement.



I think they use the semi-tendinosus tendon, which is the one that inserts into the fibula. You can feel it on the back, outside part of your knee.

Learn something new everyday. The only option I had in 1995 was the patellar tendon graft. Then again, I was in the hospital for three days and now it's out-patient. Technology is something else.
