ACL Reconstruction

February 26, 2014

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is a major stabilizing ligament of the knee. ACL injury is one of the commonest knee injury and ACL reconstruction is one of the commonest surgery done. The ACL reconstruction can be done using keyhole technique. Newer advances involve using special techniques to:

  1. achieve a more anatomical reconstruction, closely resembling the natural ACL.
  2. achieve a stronger , more stable construct using double bundle reconstruction techniques
  3. achieve maximum tissue preservation by leaving functional tissue behind and only reconstructing what is torn. (ie. selective bundle reconstruction)
