Abstract

Abstract The procedure for repairing the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) has a steep learning curve and entails numerous difficult steps during surgery, because of the proximity of the neurovascular bundle, difficult passage of the graft through the posterior capsule, and risk of poor tibial fixation because of the long intramedullary trajectory of the graft. The use of instruments for retrograde reaming and a new device for adjustable cortical suspensory fixation allows for a safe, reproducible all-inside double-bundle PCL reconstruction by simplifying these difficult steps. We used anterior tibial allograft or hamstring autograft together with adjustable suspensory fixation devices that allow tensioning (after fixation) of the posterolateral bundle in extension and the anteromedial bundle in flexion.
