BACKGROUND Performing a single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction within the femoral footprint is important to obtain a functional graft and a stable knee. HYPOTHESIS There will be a significant difference in the ability of 3 ACL reconstruction techniques to reach and cover the native femoral footprint. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS The percentage of the ACL footprint covered by the femoral tunnel was compared after 3 different techniques to target… CONTINUE READING
