BACKGROUND Previous approaches for medial collateral ligament (MCL) reconstruction have been associated with extensive exposure, risk of donor site morbidity with autografts, loss of motion, nonanatomic graft placement, and technical complexity with double-bundle constructs. Therefore, we implemented a technique that uses Achilles allograft, small incisions, and anatomic insertions to reconstruct the MCL. DESCRIPTION OF TECHNIQUE The MCL femoral insertion was identified, and a socket reamed… CONTINUE READING
