Successful reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) depends on anatomic placement of a graft ligament substitute. This study examined the accuracy of a plain radiograph in determining femoral tunnel position during ACL reconstruction. Nine cadaveric distal femurs had six separate tunnels made in each specimen: 12:00 (high position), 1:30 (anatomic position), and 3:00 (low position) in the left femora and 12:00 (high), 10:30 (anatomic), and 9:00 (low) in the right femora. At each… CONTINUE READING
