PURPOSE To define the positions of the attachments of the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL) bundles of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). METHODS The shape and positions of the femoral and tibial attachments of the 2 bundles relative to bony landmarks were measured in 7 fresh-frozen, unpaired cadaveric knees by 6 independent observers.

Rotational kinematics of the knee is not fully restored after single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Cadaveric experiments using knee testing machines have suggested anatomical reconstruction replacing the anteromedial and posterolateral bundles could restore knee kinematics more effectively than single-bundle reconstruction.(More)
The purpose of this multicenter retrospective study was to analyze the causes for failure of ACL reconstruction and the influence of meniscectomies after revision. This study was conducted over a 12-year period, from 1994 to 2005 with ten French orthopaedic centers participating. Assessment included the objective International Knee Documenting Committee(More)
The aims of this article were to report the objective results of revision ACL reconstruction and to assess the influence of an associated lateral extra-articular tenodesis on knee stability and IKDC score. This study focused on revision ACL reconstruction and was conducted over a 10-year period, from 1994 to 2003 with ten French orthopedic centers(More)
