Anatomic double-bundle ACL reconstruction with notchplasty improved anterior stability

September 12, 2014

Anatomic double-bundle ACL reconstruction with notchplasty improved anterior stability, and no harmful effects were found on patellofemoral joint findings, according to study results.

Researchers classified 73 patients who underwent anatomic double-bundle ACL reconstruction without notchplasty as the control group and 64 patients with 2-mm notchplasty as the notchplasty group. All patients were evaluated using loss of extension, patient’s subjective feeling of limited extension and pain at passive full extension, muscle strength, manual laxity tests, KT-1000 arthrometer measurement, patellofemoral joint findings, Tegner score, Lysholm score, subjective scores and time to return to sports.
