This article describes the various options which are available for posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction in a chronic situation. On the femoral side, one- or two-bundle grafts may be used. In laboratory conditions, 2-bundle reconstruction makes it possible to mimic more closely the biomechanics of the native PCL. However, until now there is no clear-cut clinical evidence that 2-bundle reconstruction leads to a better outcome than the 1-bundle one. On the tibial side, either a tunnel… CONTINUE READING
