ABSTRACT
The article presents information on anatomy, injury patterns, biomechanics, and kinematics of the anterior cruciate ligament. It also summarizes the surgical technique and augmentation procedures used in an anatomic two-bundle approach to anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Many medical studies find that single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is insufficient in controlling combined rotatory loads of internal tibial torque and valgus torque.

    Patients frequently experience anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries but current ACL reconstruction strategies do not restore the native biomechanics of the knee, which can contribute to the early onset of osteoarthritis in the long term. To design more effective treatments, investigators...
