Abstract

We describe a novel double-bundle reconstruction method for ACL deficient knee. Grafts are tibialis allograft for AMB (anteromedial bundle) and semitendinosus autograft for PLB (posterolateral bundle). Femoral fixations are done by Bio-TransFix for AMB and EndoButton for PLB. Tibial fixations are done by Bio-interference screw for AMB at 60-70° knee flexion and secure the PLB and remnant AMB graft simultaneously onto anteromedial aspect of tibia at 10-20° knee flexion with spiked washer and screw. With our technique, graft lengths are not restricted and we provide strong femoral and tibial fixation if it is compared with previous techniques.
