ABSTRACT
The article reports on the case of a 28 year old woman with anterior cruciate ligament deficiency and an unstable knee who underwent an arthroscopically assisted right anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with use of autologous hamstring tendon. A discussion of additional surgery which was required as a result of postoperative peroneal nerve palsy is presented.
