BACKGROUND The current standard for treating complete tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is reconstruction, which requires reaming a tibial tunnel. Based on recent anatomic and biomechanical studies, this reconstruction tunnel may cause injuries to the anterior meniscal root attachments. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS The purpose was to determine if injuries occurred to the anteromedial (AM) and anterolateral (AL) meniscal root attachments because of reaming a tibial reconstruction tunnel in… CONTINUE READING
