Double-stranded hamstring graft for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.

Author information

  • 1Cabinet Goethe, Paris, France.

Abstract

Current techniques for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction do not completely reproduce the anatomy and function of the ACL. They address only the anteromedial bundle and do not fully restore ACL function throughout the range of motion. Current grafts control anterior tibial subluxation near extension, but are less efficacious in providing rotatory stability. Recently, several authors have suggested reconstructing not just the anteromedial bundle but also the posterolateral bundle. This technical note describes a double-bundle ACL reconstruction using hamstring tendons routed through 2 tibial and 2 femoral independent tunnels.
