Abstract

Midterm Results of Remnant Preserving ACL Reconstruction, Using Hamstring Tendon Autograft and a Special Surgical Technique

Introduction: Preservation of the ACL remnants may have a beneficial biological and biomechanical function.

Material and methods: Thirty patients with partial tear of the ACL with a remnant bridging the anatomical femoral and tibial footprints. This ACL remnant was preserved and augmentative reconstruction was done using a special surgical technique. The patients were clinically assessed pre and post operatively.

Results: There was statistically significant improvement of subjective as well as objective clinical assessment parameters. This improvement continued until the end of follow up two years postoperatively.

Conclusion: Remnant preserving ACL reconstruction results in excellent midterm functional outcome.
