Patient-reported results, knee stability improved after all-inside double-bundle ACL reconstruction

November 29, 2015

Investigators found significant improvements from preoperative measures at 24.8-month follow-up for both mean side-to-side differences and Lysholm scores in patients who underwent double-bundle ACL reconstruction using a special drill pin guide and reamer, along with a laser-guided device to facilitate a transtibial approach.

Investigators followed 24 patients with a mean age 31 years. Bone tunnel positions were evaluated using CT scans, with 3-D images obtained 2 weeks postoperatively. In addition, investigators assessed the femoral tunnel with the quadrant method and used Stäubli’s technique to assess the tibial tunnel position. At a mean final follow-up of 24.8 months, patients were evaluated using an arthrometer, range of motion, Lachman test, anterior drawer test, pivot-shift test and Lysolm score.
