BACKGROUND Anatomic double-bundle reconstruction has been thought to better simulate the anterior cruciate ligament anatomy. It is, however, a technically challenging procedure, associated with longer operation time and higher cost. HYPOTHESIS Double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using a single femoral and tibial tunnel can closely reproduce intact knee kinematics. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Eight fresh-frozen human cadaveric knee specimens were… CONTINUE READING
