Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament with the 4-Fold Semitendinosus Tendon

 

Prepared by Andreas Weiler, MD, PhD, of Sporthopaedicum Straching (Germany), this presentation offers an overview of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using the autologous tendon, which has become a standard procedure in today’s practice of arthroscopic knee surgery. The technique described in the video is the result of over a decade of clinical experience
and technological developments. Beginning with a discussion of proper positioning and diagnostic examination of the joint, the video describes arthroscopy and preparation methods, graft harvesting and preparation, debridement of the femoral tunnel and tibial tunnel, and graft insertion as well as femoral and tibial fixation. The demonstrated method allows anatomical ACL reconstruction providing precise tunnel placement and graft fixation.
