    Purpose: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has been under intensive discussion and debate, although the anatomy of this ligament was resolved thoroughly almost 200 years ago. The ACL consist of two bundles, anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL). The conventional single-bundle...

    The article focuses on the opposing views of doctors Nicholas A. Sgaglione and Jack M. Bert regarding anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery. Sgaglione states that anteromedial portal (AMP) drilling is more anatomic than transtibial tunneling. However, Bert argues that shorter tunnels with...

    The article discusses a study by Lutul D. Farrow and colleagues, which found that a higher revision rate was observed for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)reconstructions using allograft as compared to autograft, thus leading to a recommendation that allografts not be used among younger patients.

    The article discusses how to correctly place a second tunnel in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The success of double-bundle ACL reconstruction largely depends on correct tunnel placement. Determining the ideal position of the tunnel helps in understanding the dynamic motion of...
