Reconstruction du LCA

Technique chirurgicale

Patients that have sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, often a sports-related injury, may require surgery to reconstruct the ACL. In this procedure, a graft, either from the patient or from a donor, is used to replace the torn ligament. While there are many methods for fixation of the graft, fixating the graft at the aperture may offer a stiffer construct to prevent graft laxity and tunnel widening post-operatively1,2
