The femoral fixation of hamstring tendon grafts by a cross-pin is an established method with excellent biomechanical properties. Until now, this surgical procedure was associated with a transtibial placement of the femoral tunnel and a graft-tunnel diameter mismatch due to the different volumes of the tendon loop and the tendon strands. By use of an electrical knee positioning device, the transfixation technique can be performed safely through the anteromedial arthroscopic portal… CONTINUE READING
