In anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, sharp angulation of the graft at tunnel aperture increases local strain to the graft. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between femoral tunnel location and femoral graft bending angle after ACL double bundle reconstruction (ACL-DBR) with two different drilling techniques. In ACL-DBR, femoral tunnel was created by two techniques; outside-in technique (26 patients, group A) and transportal technique (25 patients, group… CONTINUE READING
