The safe zone for TransFix fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using the anteromedial portal technique.

Abstract

PURPOSE The risk of neurovascular injury is inherent to cross-pin femoral fixation for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and has not been evaluated using the anteromedial portal technique; therefore, we determined a safe zone of cross-pin drill angles. METHODS Five cadaveric midthigh to midknee specimens underwent anterior cruciate ligament… (More)
