We describe a new technique for arthroscopically assisted posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

The TransFix technique for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has been found to give better initial fixation strength than other techniques using semitendinosus and gracilis grafts, and it provides adequate graft length for secure… CONTINUE READING
